Recently Jil, in collaboration with our marketing dept, took to social media to find out-What’s Your Style? With so many custom homes being built in Alberta, BC, and the Pacific Northwest, there really is a style for everyone. We narrowed down our results to the following categories of design: Farmhouse, Transitional, West Coast, and Mid Century Modern. From there, Jil created mood boards to really help create a visual understanding of each theme. By incorporating various doors from Westeck, she was able to show us how our products fit into each of the various styles.
Stonegable.com tells us: Today, Farmhouse style is a way of life that reflect a love for the land and its bounty and keeps a close connection between both. It loves simplicity and has a do-it-yourself attitude. Recycling, upcycling and renovating are all in the wheelhouse of farmhouse style!
Jil created this look with the Craftsman Classic Wood Door from Westeck and layered in natural elements with a refined country flavour. Various homes in the Fraser Valley of BC, and the Pacific Northwest embrace this look and we can see why. Farmhouse no longer means “old” or “dark and dingey”. Bright open windows, light wood, and an environmental approach to décor, really brings Farmhouse into the 21st century.
Transitional Style (also known as “updated classic for men”, “classic with a contemporary twist”, “new takes on old classics”) in interior design and furniture design refers to a contemporary blend of traditional and modern styles, midway between old world traditional and the world of chrome and glass. (Wikipedia)
Transitional is a very popular design concept in new construction, as it allows the occupants much more versatility in their personal style choices.
Jil used the Westeck Classic Wood Door with Heritage Grid SDS for this look, incorporating traditional warm tone woods with neutral grey, and bright and contemporary yellow for a truly Transitional look.
West Coast Modern is a popular style currently in British Columbia and Washington State. Blending natural design elements such as rough-cut cedar with various metallic surfaces, West Coast mimics the feeling of land and sea. Featuring the Westeck Classic Wood – 8 panel in VG fir and a rosewood finish, the wood door featured here anchors the space and provides warmth and elegance.
Mid Century Modern
One thing you will learn from Jil Sonia, is she LOVES MCM. A design style made popular in the 50s and 60s, we are seeing a huge rise in demand today. While the mood board was completed with one of our Deco Doors, and easily available contemporary furnishings, this home would easily have been just as acceptable in the days of The Jetson’s and The Brady Bunch. A pop of orange is almost mandatory in MCM style.
4 different doors, 4 different styles, something for everyone. We hope you enjoy these mood boards from Jil, and hope you are inspired by her door choices for your own well-designed spaces. Keep an eye out on our social feeds for more style inspiration.
