Vancouver – finally in the running

Although Vancouver is considered to be a “metropolitan” city and undoubtably one of the most beautiful in Canada (maybe even North America), we have been severely lacking the retail giants of our neighbor, the US.   This fact is slowly but surely coming to an end!  As many of you know, half of the Zellers in Canada are to be transformed into Target in 2013!  Hallelujah!

Another exciting addition is Anthropologie.  Their store opened in May on South Granville in Vancouver.  Creators of unique and often “bohemian” inspired clothes.  But also cute and unusual home decor items and hardware.   Often you’ll see vintage replicas as part of their home wares.  Dont expect bargain basement pricing, but if you are looking for an interested piece or two, this is the place.  One of my favorites is this playful owl cookie jar.  Would love to see it on my shelf!

Crate and Barrel is going to be a welcome addition to our selection of retail housewares stores too.  With their modern esthetic and large selection, you’ll be sure to find what you are looking for.  The store is suppose to open this year in the Oakridge shopping mall.

Their talored style is lovely.  But they also have a great selection of housewares.  For a long time now I have been eyeing this set of 12 appetizer plates.And the most exciting news of all….  West Elm is also coming to South Granville this fall.  Not unlike Crate and Barrel, they have a modern, sleek esthetic.  With many styles to choose from.  This is a great place to buy ready made curtain panels that will almost always be less money than custom.  And gorgeous area rugs!

They have a fresh youthful and unique approach to their products.  Some of their lighting is simply stunning!

Well, I just thought I would bring you up to date in my world of design.  Looking forward to a busy fall.  Hoping I can hit some of these new stores for my clients… and myself!
