Vancouver Sun - The Home Front: Getting creative on a budget

Vancouver interior designer Jamie Banfield, of Jamie Banfield Design, says he shares this philosophy when approaching design projects.

“We pride ourselves on being a sustainable and eco-friendly firm,” he says, “so we’re all about shopping second hand and upcycling. The Habitat for Humanity Restore is a great resource for a person on a budget. I find it to be quite similar to shopping off the rack: You have to be flexible with your wish list. If it doesn’t fit, you can get it tailored or make it into something new. The only limitations with design is your imagination.”

Western Living - 5 Tips on How to Upcycle Like a Pro

Jamie Banfield, interior designer and upcycling expert, once made an entire wall unit out of wire spools. “We cut them so they were half-rounds,” he explains—perfect for storing vinyl records. He’s also created shelving from industrial pallets, galvanized pipes and mason blocks, plus a headboard out of an old door. These one of a kind pieces don’t just save money for his clients—they’re key to creating Banfield’s relaxed west coast aesthetic. And since the designer often scores his materials from the ReStore, his upcycles are also a way to pay it forward: shopping here helps to fund Habitat for Humanity.

 

VANCOUVER SUN - Thrifty Design

Most people are comfortable with the idea of picking up the odd secondhand item to decorate their homes, interior designer Jamie Banfield says.

But when it comes to large renovation projects — such as ripping out a kitchen and installing a shiny new one — and using secondhand sinks, countertops and cabinets, that’s a new concept for many, he says. Nonetheless, Banfield says it’s one worth getting your head around.

“You’re going to save money, right off,” he says. “And save things going into the landfill.” Read More

WL STYLE - Artistic License

"I may not know the answer to everything, but I'm always looking for a new way to use products," laughs interior designer Jamie Banfield. He's built a custom countertop from wood found in the Richmond Oval's scrap pile, and is currently working to construct a take made from railroad tiles and an old tree stump ("I try to think local, and I love repurposing things"). Which his designs are filled with West Coast flair-think wood and stone accents and beach-inspired colour pallets-Banfield also focuses on functionality. Interior design, he says, is about "being an artist, but also being an engineer on the practical side of things."

NATIVE TRAILS - Designers we love

"I love layering different textures and colours in a space. The texture is an amazing way to stimulate touch—from a plush towel to pebble-stoned flooring; each medium has a unique effect on your senses and comes in all shapes and forms. Incorporating natural materials in a space is another way to delight the senses—whether in the form of a wood backsplash in a herringbone pattern in a kitchen, a textured copper sink, or a live edge counter top, I want each room to have a showpiece that is also classic so that it can be appreciated and enjoyed for years to come. One of my favourite projects is a condo renovation we recently completed. We were able to create a cohesive design throughout but also give each room a different feel by incorporating a mix of textures and colours.

When home shows roll into town, I always make a beeline for the real-life house displays.
