Pair a modern aesthetic with a traditional material, and you€™ve got a showstopper of a fireplace. For this custom home in Vancouver's tony Kerrisdale €™hood€”a collaboration with Bold Construction€”Beyond Beige's Reisa Pollard sourced walnut panels from Moko Interior. €œIt was something that pushed the boundaries by being dramatic, but stayed within the homeowner's comfort zone with more conservative materials,€ says the designer. A matching walnut veneer was chosen to surround the windows, and Living Lab chairs were stained the same shade. €œThe whole space is made up of natural elements,€ says Pollard. €œWe wanted to create a true connection.€
