Hidden Valley Ranch


Situated in the foothills of Alberta and just outside of the city bustle, this acreage went through a full overhaul to become a more functional home for its owners. The original main floor was very crowded and divided, not taking the full advantage of the vaulted ceilings and west facing living room windows overlooking miles of farmland with mountains as the backdrop.


Clients were very particular about having lots of warm woods in the home and have also brought some cherished pieces with them from the previous residence, one of them being a beautiful antique cabinet carved in wood with intricate wood and brass details, which set the tone for the rest of the wood finishes in the home.


Kitchen Storage

Kitchen Hoodfan

Kitchen hoodfan structure was designed around the vaulted ceilings and desire to have a cozy, country home feeling, something that British design has mastered. It adds sophisticated simplicity to the kitchen and another dimension and neutral but textured plaster finish.

Hoodfan Details

Niches and ledge were created inside for the hoodfan structure to maximize the space and provide extra storage and interest.

Kitchen Island

Mix of Millwork

Antique cabinet brings a welcoming contrast to the space, old vs new. It was also a great reference point for all the wood selections in this home.

Entry to Ensuite

Ensuite Millwork

What used to be a spare bedroom became a spacious and bright ensuite connected to the primary bedroom and walk in closet. Wood flooring was carried throughout all the spaces to maintain the feel of an old ranch house.
