Each month, we go through Instagram looking through all of your beautiful photos with the #MyUrbanBarn tag, looking for someone to feature on our blog (and to send a $150 UB gift card). This month’s winner is Meaghan, aka Painted Cliff Chalet on Instagram.
Tell us a little about yourself and your space
My name is Meaghan Beck and I’m a local Vancouverite, corporate responsibility professional, and aspiring interior designer. My partner, Mike and I, love getting outdoors and into the mountains. We just bought our dream chalet in Whistler! We wanted to create a cozy and relaxing space for us to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. We also welcome guests from around the world to stay at our chalet and want to offer the best in accommodations in Whistler. We provide high quality bedding and decor from Urban Barn because we believe these help us create a memorable Whistler experience for our guests in hopes they come back again to visit us with their families.
How would you describe your decorating style?
Our decorating style is a mixture of classic chalet and modern cozy. We want our chalet to be warm and inviting. It is a space to warm up and relax after a great day on the slopes. The best part of the day is apres and we want our space to be so cozy and relaxing that our guests go home refreshed. Our space is for togetherness to bring families and friends together to make memories. We decorated with Urban Barn bed frames, pillows, bedding, and furniture to provide a modern, high quality, chalet feel with vintage elements and a clean feel. We took a picture of our mountain view from our back deck and used this as our colour palet inside. We love how the antique accents bring in the earthy feel of the mountains while the muted turquoise pillows pick up on the subtle hues of the sky and sitka trees.
Tell us about your favorite Urban Barn piece and why you love it.
Our favourite Urban Barn piece is the Greyson bed frame. We love how cozy this bedframe is and how comforting it feels to sleep with it. The dramatic feel of the headboard and the side frames really create a space that dreams are made of quite literally! We have a queen sized bed in our guest room and a king sized bed in our master bedroom. The construction is really solid and our guests compliment us all the time on how well they sleep in our space. The duvet covers and accent pillows we also purchased at Urban Barn to really finish our look. We love how the blue accent pillows resemble the colours in the mountain scenes out our front door in the beautiful Whistler Blackcomb mountains.
