Patricia Gray-designed Apartment in Vancouver

In honor of the Olympics, we’re looking at Canadian design. Our neighbor to the north is home to gold-medal worthy style. Vancouver interior designer Patricia Gray is featured in this month’s Architectural Digest for her stunning makeover of an apartment there.

There’s also a piece in AD featuring Vancouver’s world-class architecture.

Don’t miss Dwell’s coverage of the Best of Quebec Architecture awards and this winner for outstanding project under $150,000.

Learn more about the look of the 2010 games in an interview with the design manager who explains how going green was an objective in Vancouver. Athletes’ quarters are bare bones; exteriors not so much. Check out the grass roof on the Olympic Village.

I want this ottoman from Toronto-based Gus Modern made out of recycled coffee sacks.

Can’t blog about Canadian design without including Candice Olson. Before starting her own design company, the Ontario native played for the Canadian National volleyball team. Besides transforming interiors on TV, she’s been busy translating her style into furniture, wallpaper, lighting, rugs and more. Talk about divine.

  6. Great theme and the feel is one of calm and classical design. The large area rug appears expensive , yet well worth the investment.
