An Australian couple based in Tokyo and Hong Kong wanted a BoConcept look for their new Whistler homebut didnt quite know where to start.
“Michelle and Andrew were familiar with BoConcept, but they wanted help putting things together,” explains Vancouver BoConcept Stylist Ronald Gutierrez, who led the entire design for their stunning mountain property. Ronald got started by visiting the Whistler site and getting to know the couple’s intentions for their new place. “It’s important to understand the homeowners’ lifestyle, the purpose of the property and their individual needs,” he says. An extendable matte white table complements the bright hardwood floor giving it a crisper look in both kitchen and dining areas. Neutral tones for sofa upholstery and coffee table finish makes an eclectic choice of accessories easier to combine.With a strong sense of what these clients were after—a big city escape surrounded by nature—Ronald began to plan the interior decor using BoConcept’s 3D Home Creator software. “It gave them a clear idea of how the space would come together, even from a different time zone.” He narrowed down their original vision to a neutral palette that’s equipped to stand the test of time. “We began with the main furniture and gradually added accessories and smaller details to complete a customized concept and add touches of colour.”The end result is what Ronald describes as a contemporary aesthetic that was entirely coordinated by the BoConcept team. “Everything went very smoothly,” he says. “It really came to life.” The Adelaide outdoor set in white brings an optimistic feel to an open space. A Mezzo king-size bed frame invites you to rest and relax as though on vacation—you just might want to hang the “do not disturb” sign. A bookcase with TV unit is a perfect wall feature solution mixed in with a few pops of colour.
