This custom home was designed both inside, and out, by Step One Design. The collaborative experience created a successful outcome for this Oak Bay Home.

However, Step One, successfully created a floor plan with flex space – a master bedroom on both floors to allow the owners to grow through and into the space. Included in the main floor was a functional great room space, laundry room, master bedroom, dining room, and two car garage. Upstairs, 2 bedrooms, a media room and additional master allowed for growing children to maintain their own space.
The interior design concept included craftsman styling with modern touches of dark gray and white shaker style cabinetry. Panel moulding and marble ledgestone added elegance and a wonderful balance to rustic features of wide plank oak floors, and touches of black.
