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.”

Patricia Gary Inc. worked closely with the client and General Contracter on this design-build renovation project, from architectural working drawings right through to completion and custom furnishings and artwork throughout by Patricia Gray.

Custom leather swivel chairs by Patricia Gray Inc. The clients' Noguchi coffee table was re-purposed as an end table, signature lighting fixture from Spain and a beautiful view makes the perfect corner for morning coffee and reading the newspaper.
The space where the sofa sits was previously an unused guest bedroom. By removing the wall between this room and the before cramped living room, we were able to double the living space and increase the outstanding view of the Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park Marina and West Vancouver mountains.

Patricia Gray 'TAKING IT OUTDOORS' The Vancouver Sun

Interior designer Patricia Gray has two decks, which she has done up as outdoor living spaces: one for lounging and the other for dining. The Vancouver Sun, Business Section. 

TAKING IT OUTDOORS
New fabrics, products fuelling trend to expand livable space.

"A lot of clients are downsizing from houses and moving downtown, so they don't have yards," said Patricia Gray of Patricia Gray Interior Design, who specializes in downtown condos. Greater product range and lower prices for outdoor heating units have helped extend usability into cooler weather, and advancing textile technology means beautiful fabrics including weather-resistant velvets and chenilles are now available for outdoor use. "If you're spending on average $1.000.00 a square foot to live downtown for indoor space, a 100-square-foot deck... equates to $100,000.00 of real estate," Gray said. "You're furnishing your million-dollar condo beautifully. What are you going to put on the deck? Rubbermaid? No."

Gray who has been in business for 33 years, says requests for outdoor design have increased "exponentially" during the last five years. She believes the driver has been a combination of high real estate prices along with increased technological sophistication in out-door fabrics.

Because the price for real estate is so high, this makes economic sense," Gray said. "We've got these fabrics now and some are beautiful enough, we use them for indoors. I'm upholstering (indoor) sofas in them for clients who have dogs and kids. They're like chenilles and velvets but you can hose them down."

Clients will spend $20,000.00 on an outdoor fireplace, electric heaters, seating and artificial grass.

"We did a beautiful balcony for clients where we put down artificial grass, 20 stories in the sky. He's a golfer and we wanted to put a little putting green up there for him, 20 feet long. We put a beautiful granite bear sculpture out there done by an artist from Whistler. Lit at night. When I do balconies, they are part of the indoors because you are looking out at them."

Patricia Gray's Taste of Life

Patricia Gray Interior Designer
 Patricia Gray, award-winning interior designer and global aesthete
When Patricia Gray designed a residence for John Travolta (“JT,” she calls him), “he was lovely to work for, and wanted a place to escape to.” Patricia Gray, a regular interior designer to the stars, Feng Shui practitioner and a Vancouver native, was nominated “2014 Designer of the Year,” has numerous “First Place Northwest Design Awards,” and her firm was named one of the “Top 3 Design Firms in Canada.”
Gray’s mother was a bespoke dressmaker in Vancouver in the 1960’s. “I rushed home from school, excited to see the Jackie-O-style dresses and to help drape and sew.” Years later, while Gray was studying at the Parsons School of Design in Paris, one of her instructors, a curator at Versailles, used her ring of skeleton keys, some nine-inches-long, to unlock doors few had entered. After seeing the magnificent interiors they led to, Gray’s fate as an interior designer was sealed.
