Minimal Chic

While perusing the ED website I ran across this article/photos of Jim Gauer's Vancouver Island home. Breath of fresh air. Take a look.

Armchairs- IFC, Curtains- Kravet fabric, Lamps- Luceplan

Six years ago Jim left his midtown Manhattan apartment to move to Victoria, a small provincial capital on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

"Today we live in a serene minimalist aerie that overlooks Victoria’s fabled Inner Harbour, where white clouds above the Strait of Juan de Fuca are sometimes indistinguishable from the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains in the distance, and the creamy sails of schooners are sometimes obscured by dense, pearly fog. The decor is simple and spare, with a color palette limited mostly to shades of white and pale gray, like the gulls that glide past our windows." Gauer

Gauer designed the banquett which is covered in a Knoll fabric

Granite countertops, IKEA Island, Appliances are Kitchen Aid

Stools on the terrace are by Kartwell

The cabinets and lamps are IKEA, and the photographs by Gauer hang above the headboard he designed.
