If the room has a mid-century or Scandinavian style, the team at Vancouver's Falken Reynolds probably designed it.
The breathtaking views of the Sunshine Coast’s Merry and Thormanby Islands are hard to ignore, but the homeowners’ collection of furniture (a Noguchi coffee table and a Saarinen Womb chair) also inspired the designer duo: Falken Reynolds played up the mid-century theme in as authentic a way as possible. See more of this gorgeous coastal cabin.
Every room in this New York-inspired condo, located in Vancouver’s Crosstown district, is spectacular (have you seen the aqua herringbone tile in the kitchen?), but it’s the Scandinavian-style bathroom that really caught out attention. The custom-built cabinet has four legs to look like furniture, creating a light and airy look. See more of this stylish condo.
Circa 1980, this Whistler cabin was covered with pine trim and green-and-white striped wallpaper; Falken Reynolds brought the open-concept space into the 21st century with light oak flooring, bright white walls and a chandelier made of resin faux antlers.

In this New Westminster home, a mid-century modern bench is paired with bright, boldly patterned wallpaper in the entryway. It’s an aesthetic that can be found throughout: a bright green backsplash is paired with hickory cabinets in the kitchen, and a neon pink vanity can be found in the bathroom. See more of this cheerful renovation.
Though the furniture is neutral—a camel-hued B&B Italia Lazy chair pairs with a beige sofa on a silvery Salari rug—this room is anything but bland. To wit: a Yue Minjun print lends a playful vibe and a geometric Tom Dixon lamp adds a touch of edginess. See more of this 110-year-old Vancouver townhouse.
