Home Tour Sneak Peek

home tour sneak peek

I have a lot of plans and ideas for re-decorating my apartment, including working on a few furniture DIY projects. To show you a little bit of what’s in store, I decided to put together this little sneak peek home tour.

To start with, the above dresser is going to be a major DIY project. I have a few ideas of what I’d like to do with it to fix it up – but would love to hear your thoughts, as well. You may notice that the top 3 drawers have different knobs than the rest of the drawers/cabinet door. I purchased those lovely porcelain white and blue knobs in India almost 10 years ago. I have others, which you’ll see in future posts, but these 3 have never been out on any furniture.

This doesn’t mean that Vancouver’s residents don’t enjoy classic décor, or only like stark interiors. I also love injecting my décor with pieces that look older than they are — vintage-style furniture and accessories. There’s no doubt that Vancouver is fresh and innovative – reflected in the modern building styles and interior spaces – but the combination of vintage and modern is what makes it unique.

I’m on a mission to find unique, interesting and quality home goods and furniture in Vancouver — especially moderately priced products. There are quite a few pockets in Vancouver, where home goods stores seem to congregate. Main St. has several of these pockets, dotted along the long North/South street. One of the most approachable and unique home goods stores that I came across in the Main St./Broadway area is Much & Little. …continue reading
