3. Cool Chic
The inspiration behind this BattersbyHowat-designed cedar home was a combination of modern Mexico and the art of calligraphy. The striking dark accents act as the perfect framing device for the view outside, while the Portofino chair and Minotti ottoman create a calm, comfortable feeling.
This 1959 Lewis post-and-beam home received a makeover from designer Negar Ghorashi, who made sure to make the most of its location. The floor lamp is the focal point of this bedroom, designed to reflect the tree canopy visible from the windows. Get a full tour of this home.
The glass panels are the highlight of this vintage-meets-modern home. Renovated by Burgers Architecture, the windows invite a warm and natural glow to the space while the rug and side table pull everything together. Check out the full home post-renovation.
6. Comfy Resort

Designed by Nyla Free and architect Marvin DeJong, the idea behind this space was to create something unexpected. The contemporary master bedroom features millwork on both sides of the entrance doors, storage on the lower half, built-in niches and inserts (painted black to resemble metal).
