Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design enjoyed providing a bright and fresh foyer design for this lakehouse foyer renovation in West Kelowna, BC.

We will start with the after photos and share 7 of our favourite changes to they foyer renovation. Keep reading as the before photos are at the bottom of the blog:-).

  1. Flooring: This foyer renovation required updated flooring. We removed the original grey tile flooring and brought in a beautiful oak herringbone engineered hardwood floor that we carried throughout most of the main floor of this lakehouse.

2) Front Doors: The front doors were dated and traditional, so we replaced them with some lovely 3/4 glass modern farmhouse-style doors. We painted the interior of these double exterior doors Benjamin Moore Van Courtland Blue HC-145.

3) Ceiling Detail: To clean up the ceiling, we added a tongue and groove planks and painted them C2-516 Architectural White. We stained the existing ceiling beams the darkest ‘tobacco tone’ that we pulled out of the hardwood flooring. Keeping our palette cohesive and purposeful throughout the home.

4) Finishing & Hardware Details: If you take a look at the before photos below of the original casing, plinth block, and baseboard detail, you will understand why we decided to re-design and revise the finishing details throughout the home!

We replaced interior passage doors with solid-core doors and added beautiful satin-brass interior door hardware via Emtek. The door hardware is one of my favourite hardware selections within this home. I adore the rectangle rosette w/ round knob!

6) Lighting: Ahh yes, lighting. So important. We decided to proceed with a focal light fixture that was open and airy, but it also needed to included our brushed brass finish.

We selected a beautiful chandelier by Visual Comforts called the Darlana Medium Lantern designed by E. F. Chapman.

The fixture has the perfect home up in the foyer vaulted ceiling, complimenting all those lovely angled ceiling lines!

NFID balanced out the rest of the lighting in the space with the use of LED potlights and brought in more natural light through the windows by removing the dark window shutters (see below photo below).

7) Furnishings & Window Treatments: We reused some of the clients existing beautiful furnishings and incorporated some new to complete this foyer renovation.

Newly added items include a lovely Restoration Hardware Armoire for extra storage, fiddle fig tree, & some beautiful new linen custom-made roman shades. …These are just some of my favourite new additions to this bright foyer design.

West Kelowna Lakehouse Custom Home Renovation by Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design, Kelowna Interior Designer

We loved working on this home! It was built in the community of Sunnyside in 1981. The house has seen a few renovations in its time, however over the past couple years, NFID has worked on the design & renovation to the main floor and lower level of this beautiful home.

To begin with, we had the pleasure designing this renovation for an amazing, fun, and beautiful family. The family uses this home for entertaining many guests WHILE raising their beautiful & active children.

Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design had provided full-service interior design for this project. NFID worked on all the design drawings, millwork designs, product specifications, and schedules for this renovation prior to construction start. This allowed us to get realistic project quotes for our clients to review contractors bids & determine which trade suppliers we felt would be best suited for the project.

Entering the construction process, we had the pleasure to work with Chriscan Construction, a local Kelowna construction contractor. Chriscan had a wonderful team in their office & on the job site!

By having all millwork designs, product specifications, and schedules completed. The design was client approved prior to construction start. This allowed NFID was able to set our clients up for the most positive renovation experience to the best of our ability.

There are always unknowns in a renovation, so by ensuring the design was locked down we were able to deal with any unforeseen issues that did arise on site & have the team focus our time on figuring out the best possible design solutions, benefiting the clients and overall outcome of the project!

Over the next couple months we are excited to bring you further into the interior of this Okanagan lakehouse, showing you some amazing before and after photos.

Natalie Fuglestveit Interior Design loved designing this special girl’s bedroom located in West Kelowna, BC.

The design concept for this bedroom was to create an elegant, pretty, and calming space that encouraged a sense of happiness and peacefulness. This bedroom design was to be a space that this girl could grow with into her teen years.

With a few options available to her on the table, our young client personally selected this beautiful wallcovering by Osborne & Little. This wallcovering is named Swan Lake with the pattern designed by designer Nina Campbell.

Swan Lake is a beautiful lake scene featuring swans, weeping willows, and waterlilies. All beautiful natural elements that can be found in West Kelowna, BC.

This wallcovering has a brushed gold metallic print on the willow trees that reflect a beautiful light when the sun enters the bedroom.

Wrapping an entire room with wallcoverings provides a luxurious feel to any space. We added custom-made drapery in an off-white linen fabric & brushed brass hardware to flank the windows.

A Girl

We wanted the furnishings in the room to have a slight mid-century feel. We had a custom-made twin XL bed make up with storage underneath. The headboard has a simplistic tufted detail that brings in mid-century lines to the space. This custom-made bed is in a beautiful high-performance nanotex treated fabric by JF Fabrics.

Complimenting the mid-century feel, we selected the nightstand & desk from West Elm‘s Mid-Century collection in white.

The semi-flush crystal chandelier was a vintage find. We decided to pair it with a beautiful crystal table lamp from Restoration Hardware.

A Girl

One of our favourite bedding lines is St. Geneve Luxury Bedding. NFID selected a beautiful shade of pink in their Capri collection that is 100% GIZA Egyptian Cotton (fabric from Italy). They have a gorgeous colour line up that works with almost any palette.

A girl’s bedding is a special space where she will sleep, relax, socialize, play, and do school work in while she grows. It is very important that this is a space she will love!
