Inside Erica Durance’s Home
Star of CTV’s “Saving Hope,” Erica Durance, gave us an exclusive tour of her West Vancouver home, which she shares with her son and husband David Palffy.
Building and decorating the home was a labour of love for the couple that has been married for 12 years. “This house is an eclectic mix of everything my wife loves,” says Palffy.
The décor is inspired by their travels, but putting it all together was largely her husband’s project. Durance says, “Most of the time people are assuming once it gets to all the colours and all that, the woman steps in and says, ‘Ta-da!’” Yet, this wasn’t the case for Durance. While she was busy working on “Saving Hope” she gave her husband full creative control and he designed the space with her in mind.
Durance’s favourite room is the kitchen. “It’s very warm and homey,” she describes. Although it is Palffy who cooks, Durance likes to entertain, and watch basketball games there.
Another favourite part of the home is a corner of the bedroom where Durance spends hours reading Jane Austen books by a fireplace. “One of the most beautiful things about this area for me is the blend of the colour coming in. I find it very peaceful and restful,” says the actress. Her husband crafted the room to have coffered ceiling, Victorian lighting, and views of the ocean through the widow which all add to the ambience of the space.
Unfortunately for Durance, she does not get to enjoy the home as often as she would like. “Saving Hope” is shot in Toronto, and she travels between the two cities every few weekends. “When I get there, and I get in the house and I shut the door, it’s perfect.”

Near the end of the emotionally draining second-season opener of CTV’s Saving Hope, doctors Alex Reid and Charlie Harris discuss whether they are lucky or cursed.
After taking in the drama that befalls Hope Zion during Tuesday’s hour-long episode, viewers might lean toward the latter. When we left the action in Season 1, former chief of surgery Charlie (played by Michael Shanks), finally emerged from the coma he slipped into after a car wreck at the beginning of Season 1. As fans will recall, this happened while he and Alex (Calgary-born Erica Durance) were in a cab en route to their marriage ceremony. Now, as Season 2 begins, the pair’s romantic plans are again interrupted when they happen upon a violent shooting that eventually throws the entire hospital into turmoil. Read more →

In the midst of the commotion, Alex treats a bullied teenager and deals with her own emotions about everything that’s happened in the past year. Meanwhile, Charlie is caught off guard when he realizes that he’s still able to see the spirits of deceased patients. As well, new Chief of Surgery Joel (Daniel Gillies) works alongside Charlie’s ex-wife Dawn to perform an intense surgery.
