TALENT: We Live Like This

I love Wayne McGill & Chad Farquharson of We Live Like This's Vancouver apartment. It's obviously not a large apartment (700sq feet!), but this couple has created such interesting and unique rooms that it feels bigger than it is. Each room is in itself a highlight and instead of blending together, they give this home the illusion of having many rooms.

I've read over and over again that not-so-secret designer trick of keeping wall and decor colors similar to create flow between rooms and thus creating a more spacious feel. Wayne & Chad have gone the complete opposite but in my opinion, achieved the same result with a lot more fun.

While I'm a little less adventurous (hello, fan of the monochromatic monolithic Restoration Hardware fall catalog here!) than these two, I do appreciate how much fun their space is. It's obviously personal and really, at the end of the day, isn't that what we should be striving for in our own homes?
