mango design co

mango design co reworked the main floor of this 100 yr old house & provided a new kitchen, millwork & cobined bathroom/laundry on the upper floor.

we created a passageway from kitchen to living room to allow light & traffic to flow through the space. pocket doors can divide the spaces when the need arises.

the douglas fir vanity in the upper bathroom houses a built-in washer & dryer flanking the sink.

it's not a functioning fireplace & in this photo it's just some old panelling around the opening. we needed a really thin tile but hadn't found anything we liked yet...

Heidi do you mean the light fixtures? I ordered them through living space in Vancouver but I can't recall the manufacturer.... am on sabbatical at the moment without my files so I'm sorry I can't help further.

Are the shelves made of wood with just a hand-painted finish or is it a 2pac finish over MDF or similar? Thanks

This is another photo we liked when we were throwing together ideas for the living room bookcases. We liked how the fireplace color went over to the shelf on the bookcase....also that it is black. I'd like to do something with our current fireplace mantel becuse it's so boring as it stands but it has good bones. We alos like the shelves in this picture, the cabinets and drawers and the lighting fixtures at the top.
