Vancouver Yaletown Penthouse

This is a penthouse project for a couple with two small children in Yaletown, Vancouver. It has a fantastic view that was a little overwhelming when I started on the project. There was nothing to keep your focus inside the space. I decided that I needed to be bold in my choice of finishes. 

I grounded the space by adding teak panelling to the raised ceilings to mirror the teak of the floor. The furnishings and accessories were kept to a minimum to not detract from the view. The finishes had to child friendly. The dining table and countertops are Caesarstone, which is virtually indestructible. The dining room chairs were upholstered in white leatherette. The chairs are studded at the top of each leg. The chandelier was picked for its fun and whimsy. The sofa is real leather and the area carpet is wool from Belgium. The ottoman is upholstered in Cashmere, which isn't exactly child friendly but my client fell in love with it.

The back wall of the cooktop is a wonderful piece of Granite that I hand picked from the supplier, and it was with much difficulty, that they were able to install it as a slab - in one piece with no seams. It weighed approx. 600 pounds and had to be taken up to the top of the building. It looks fabulous, and hangs on the wall like a magnificent piece of artwork. I also wanted to use warm colouring & natural products to connect the space with the earth energy. The colour of the granite picks up the colour of the teak and has these beautiful charcoal grey veins running through it. I matched the paint and carpet colour to this gray veining in the granite to further accentuate the granite. The effect is better when you are in the space. You feel like you are on top of the world but at the same time the space is very warm and enveloping. The clients are happy with the end result and they are finding it family friendly and good for their frequent entertaining.

Definition of Abstract Art

Definition of Abstract Art from the Tate Modern: A cluster of theoretical ideas lies behind abstract art. The idea of art for art's sake – that art should be purely about the creation of beautiful effects. The idea that art can or should be like music – that just as music is patterns of sound, art's effects should be created by pure patterns of form, colour and line. The idea, derived from the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, that the highest form of beauty lies not in the forms of the real world but in geometry. The idea that abstract art, to the extent that it does not represent the material world, can be seen to represent the spiritual. In general abstract art is seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it can be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, simplicity and spirituality.

"Gold Leaf Diptych" 48 x 60 inches
Patricia Gray - Gold Leaf with Resin on Canvas


This is a gold leaf diptych in progress in my studio. It has few more steps to go and it will be ready to have a resin finish applied.

Here I am in the studio applying the finishing layer of resin to a Gold Leaf Diptych. I am using a blow torch to cover every inch of the surface to eliminate bubbles and create a mirror like finish.

Beautiful Kitchen Design Ideas for the Heart of Your Home

Thank you Amara for the write up on my Vancouver kitchen design!

“We love how the Macassar ebony creates a dramatic backsplash and is used to frame the integrated fridge and plumbed coffee machine. Starphire glass is used as a backsplash behind the cooktop and the floating stainless steel shelf creates a convenient storage and display for dishes. Task lighting was also incorporated into the shelf. The mirrored wall above the shelf creates depth and reflects light. Corian countertops are used. We like to design kitchens with a 39” counter top height (against the standard 36” height) as we find this more ergonomic. Commercial grade appliances are by Sub-Zero, Wolf, Miele and Asko. The island also features a warming drawer.”
