(screenshots from their respective linked websites.) this week, these links have me daydreaming about my upcoming move to vancouver – new apartment, new city, fresh start!
1. even though ry and i still can’t get a dog, and rohe is rubbish on a leash, i loooove these fabric leashes and collars by “found my animal” (some are even made from recycled materials). i think they are a stylish, modern way of accessorizing your pet: found my animal.
2. i’ve been decorating with more ornate, vintage and colourful pieces for a while now, and i’m really thinking i’d like to move towards a more neutral, modern palette. i’ve been surfing “mammoth” for few years now, and i love SO much of what they showcase! created by a duo of british columbians, “the mammoth collection” showcases local and international artists, and offer a selection of their prints for sale at an affordable price (which is fantastic b/c even students love to collect art!): the mammoth collection.
3. a SUPER cool/badass/science store that i came across during my wedding hunting – but unfortunately i could not order items that i wanted since due to their biological nature, they could not be shipped across the border 😦 they DO have a store in new york city, so i miiight just have to add it to my already lengthy list of amazing shopping i have to do once i’m lucky enough to visit NYC. i think a few skulls and fossils around the apartment to add to my seashell and bee collection would be pretty rad: the evolution store.
4. another rad housewares site that i came across while looking for vintage pieces for our weddings, the old faithful shop is located in…… VANCOUVER! YES! i can’t believe ryan and i haven’t been to this store yet! it will have to be one of our first shopping trips once we move! featuring clean, classic, streamlined housewares, i think it works perfectly with our hope to transition to a neutral, fresh palette: old faithful shop.5. i’ve been browsing this housewares store for a few years now, and i have a list of wants that i never seem to get tired of daydreaming about. owner and curator laura aviva literally shops the world for beautiful housewares and decor, my personal fave, the cameroonian juju hat: l’aviva home.
