Nyla Free Designs Inc. brought the sweeping meadows of the plains to this urban Calgary home. Focusing on the tones and textures of a particular moment in nature, they created a story to bring this home to life. Keep scrolling to see how their modern prairie design came together in the gorgorgeous photos by Phil Crozier below.
From the designer… Close your eyes and imagine a wheat field with it’s warm golden hue, and an intense storm overhead, full of rich navys and many shades of gray. Now, consider this at dusk when the light is perfection.
This prairie colour story was at the helm of the design process. It gave us focus, a point of reference, and inspiration as we moved through each stage of the project. Walnut and rift-cut white oak grace this home in abundance, however, do not overwhelm. Rich charcoals, soft greys, navys, and wheat colours are considered throughout the home, creating a cohesive palette from one room to the next.
Situated in an established urban area in Calgary, with city views and downtown access, the house reflects a juxtaposition of traditional exterior to modern interior. The home has an appreciation for nature in all aspects. Everything from stone, wood, and foliage, to the materials selected for furniture and accessories; a simple, reserved approach meant there are no items in place purely for the sake of it. Every detail was thoughtfully considered from a function and aesthetic perspective with little to no excess.
