Location: Vancouver — British Columbia, Canada
When my husband's brother moved to Vancouver from San Francisco, we decided we wanted to give him a swanky pad he could call his own. After too many years of temporary apartments and roommates he finally had a permanent space all his own.
The challenge was to mix the few pieces he had shipped from San Francisco (including items from his travels across Africa and Asia, his time spent living in Maui, Toronto, Los Angeles and San Francisco) and to do it all on a limited budget. Some items — like the great regency chair — were second hand finds (the alley behind our building) and others — like the rug and blue banquette — were new purchases. We threw in some IKEA and Homesense shopping and Voila! — eclectic, eccentric, and fun! Just the way he likes it!!
