Vancouver Style

When people think Vancouver I'm sure they think of the North Shore mountains, the ocean, Stanley Park and more recently, the Olympics...but how about our designers?  We have an amazing pool of talent right in our own backyard.  Here is a run down of designers from Vancouver and surrounding area that we are so proud to call homegrown.

Erin Templeton's handbags are a must have. Especially
this classic leather tote bag, perfect for any occasion.
All her designs are lovingly stitched by hand, in new or
recycled leather.

I'm a sucker for heart shaped jewelry and these pieces by Jessie Turner make me giddy.  I'll take one in gold please!

free spirit spheres

This one is for all the kids out there, big or small, myself included. A memorable vacation, summer or winter.  Aren't these the most amazing tree houses?  Can you imagine the memories you'd take from a stay in one of these "free spirit spheres"?

Classic, classic, classic!  You can't go wrong with a classic look like this sofa and chair.   I just adore this William Switzer sofa, chair and ottoman.  Pieces this timeless will stay chic for many years to come!
