Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


As they say, “The more you live, the more you learn”, with this thought I start talking about this well noted Canadian Architect Paul Merrick. Paul is known in Canada as one of the best architects in the country and has won many awards. This house is a good example of his outstanding work. He’s not afraid of the new and most important, he possesses not only a vast knowledge of architecture but also has a passion for it. You cannot design a house like this one if you aren’t passionate about your work, and it’s very evident that Mr. Merrick loves what he does.

This fantastic house located in West Vancouver, British Columbia is so interesting. You’ll find something beautiful in every direction you look. Even if this is not your style, you simply cannot deny how well it’s done and how perfect, architecturally speaking, it is.

As I was seeing these pictures, all I could think was “how would it be to have the ocean “under” your feet every day, every time you look to the horizon? Would I ever take it for granted? Would I forgive how fortunate to be there? Would I see it as “normal” instead of “divine”? Isn’t life like that sometimes? Don’t we forget to appreciate the daily beauty of our lives?

Remind yourself to be grateful for being surrounded by beauty.

Come On In

This house embraces the natural beauty in every aspect.

On Rocks

The rocks are partially integrated in this house.

Being Part of It

Experiencing the ocean while dinning. I love how beautiful the ceilings are in this house.

Wood & Steal

It feels open and, at the same time, cozy.


This rug works perfectly with all the elements of this home.

Cottage Feel

Cooking while looking at the ocean would inspire me.


This kitchen feels laid back and it’s perfect for this house.

By the Fire

This is dreamy! A cozy corner by the fire in your kitchen! Wouldn’t it be so nice to have some coffee here?

To See the Sea

A special place to enjoy your views and your art collection.

Blue Ocean

This beautiful room opens to a balcony.


So relaxing.

With Friends

A perfect spot for entertaining.

Tree & Sea

This living room seems to be used as a multi-use purpose. I think if it was my house, I’d do it differently.

Media Room

Very small and I love it for that, and for that gorgeous rock wall in the back. of course.

Rock It


Beauty & Architecture

Mr. Paul Merrick is a brilliant architect.

Master Bedroom

It must feel heavenly being there.

All Sides

You get gorgeous views from all sides.

On The Edge

Viewing the master.

Canadian Beauty

Yes, it’s beautiful!

All Colors

Make a wish!

I’ve enjoyed posting about this unique home. I love discovering new places, new homes… It’s like opening a treasure chest every time. Your home should be something like that for you. It can be a very rare or a not so rare kind of treasure, but it’s entirely yours… and that should be enough to be treasured.

    oh i want to run away to this place!!! magnificent. to “experience the ocean while dining” as you say is one of my favorites. and i don’t think i could ever take that sort of awe inspiring nature it’s all wrapped in for granted. i love all the stone and the natural elements incorporated into the architecture.

    a gem posted by a gem!

    The rock face is amazing and all the window “walls”, wow!

  3. Nichole@40daysof said,

    What a beautiful setting! While I don’t actually love the way this house looks from the outside, I bet I would love the way it feels on the inside. At least that has been my experience with well designed homes.

    Have a great day, Luciane!

    Oh my goodness, Luciane! Absolutely stunning. It is like being on a yacht! That kitchen and the outside patio is perfect, and I love the walls in the first images that were custom painted.
    Thank you for sharing, friend. Have a wonderful evening.

    Luciane, this location is a dream. Simply wonderful. Warm hugs to you

    A casa Ă© maravilhosa, mas a pergunta da Jessica Tibbits Ă© interessante: quem limpa as janelas?
    As enormes aberturas e o trabalho em madeira está espetacular, parabéns pelo post, lindíssimo.

  14. slim paley said,

    Yay Vancouver! It doesn’t get any more beautiful!!

  15. Carmen Achados de Decoração said,

    Lu querida! mas que maravilha foi esse seu achado, hein? sabe, ainda terei (se Deus quiser) uma casa na montanha e, de preferência, à beira de um lado. Minha casa será assim também: cheia de vidros. Isso é um sonho!!! bjs

  16. Modern Country Style said,

    How did I miss this post? I love the way he’s built the home around the architecture.

    I hope his marriage is not on the rocks. Ho ho!!

    See what I did there?!!

    I think waking up every day to the sea must be incredibly relaxing and calming. Lovely!


  17. Sheila Zeller said,

    I’m catching up and am so glad to have caught up with this post! Luciane, I think this is my favorite home that you’ve posted so far – THIS is my dream home! I love everything about it 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing yet another inspirational treasure!

    this house is amazing. and its in the only gated “community” in west vancouver. the community only has 12 waterfront homes in it so its really more of a gated street. i live in west vancouver and often kayak by this house, it looks quite stunning from the water, but from these exterior photos it looks quite bland.
