When you're living in two places at once, it's nice to have some consistency in your surroundings. For a young couple splitting their time between New York and Vancouver, their Canadian digs needed to have a connection to the Big Apple. They recruited Vancouver-based design firm Falken Reynolds Interiors to help them create a space that was suitable for working from home, but could also host big game-day parties.

Designers Chad Falkenberg and Kelly Reynolds channeled the open feel of a Brooklyn warehouse loft for the space and incorporated modern pieces by local craftsmen as a nod to the emerging design scenes in both New York and Vancouver. "To emphasize the openness of the loft space, we used lighter elements such as metal Vitsœ shelving, thin stone countertops, and lighter furniture on legs to balance heavier forms," said Falkenberg. The bright palette adds to the spacious feel and is the perfect antidote to Vancouver's cloudy winters. The finished result blends the best of both cities into a comfortable home that just may inspire the couple to spend more time up north.
