THE NORDIC-INSPIRED STRAWBERRY HILLS FARMHOUSE IN LANGLEY
This modern farmhouse in Strawberry Hills—an area just outside the charming riverside community of Fort Langley—sits nestled in the woods with nearly three acres to roam. While the property is large, the home’s interior was designed to feel cozy and intimate. To do this, the designers traded wide-open spaces for more private conversation pockets—a feature more typical of classic farmhouses. From shiplap ceilings to black herringbone tile backsplashes to concrete apron sinks, the modus operandi was to make interesting choices and play with multiple textures, colours and finishes. And other than a pair of crisp white linen chairs in the living room, this home was built to be functional and hard-wearing for a family with playful young kids.
