City Living in Gastown


How was your weekend? If you're in Vancouver, did you enjoy the warm sunshine? Ahh.

Thought I'd share another lovely home with you, to start off the week. I shot this huge space for Style At Home, for the current issue. Designed by architect Omer Arbel, it's filled with light and all kinds of beautiful details. Here's a peek...

The bedroom overlooks one of my favourite spots in Vancouver - Blood Alley. Intriguing name, isn't it? 




Great use of an antique cabinet. Perfect in the master bathroom. 


The kitchen can open up to this indoor/outdoor patio. 

The "living" wall is filled with strawberry plants. 

Think you could live in a space like this? I think I could. For the whole story, check out the March issue of Style At Home. 

Have a great day!

Back soon,
Janis

Aah, I love this -- that dining space!

Of COURSE you shot this one too... gorgeous! What an amazing space too, I feel like you really captured the 'industrial' essence of the place...

I love this space. The mix of modern (kitchen) & vintage (the towel dresser) are right up my alley. I also love how the kitchen opens up to a little patio with a living wall. How perfect!

I am in love with this! Gorgeous brick throughout the place with some modern aspect to it! Thanks for the post!

Meesh@idreamofchairs.com said...

Uh, yeah I could live there too...I don't think the red runners would fit me though. ;) Would love to see the strawberry wall full of it's delights! A fantastic space and so wonderfully photographed!

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

oh wow, seriously love this place!! xx

Lady Grey said...

oh yes, I could definitely settle in here! Gorgeous!

Sandra said...

Love the eclectic design. I'd love to see more like it - so much of day-to-day Vancouver decor is a bit Pottery Barn-ish. And it can be done inexpensively as well.

What is the source of the artwork in the dining room? And the living wall is such a great idea in a climate like ours here on the west coast.

Helene @ Homebound said...

i would move in in a sec. those red brick walls are just amazing. and all those little details and great furniture {<3 that velvet sofa}... swoon. have a lovely day, xo helene

Will @ Bright.Bazaar said...

A bedroom with exposed brick walls? A boy can but dream! Fabulous. xx

Missing Goat said...

wow - really cool. Wish I was there holding your reflector for this one!

Pinecone Camp said...

Well, it seems you guys like this home! I just couldn't believe how much light Omer worked into this very long and wide old building. The patio just off the kitchen is my fave spot in this space!
Thanks everyone, for taking the time to comment!

I've always been a bit smitten by industrial-feeling spaces in old warehouses and such. I love open concept and often feel like traditional houses feel a bit boxed-in for me. great shots!

Rachel from Birch + Bird said...

Fabulous! I can't get enough of that art in the dining room. To. Die. For.

barbara@hodge:podge said...

I saw this article and wish they had posted more photos, especially more about how the whole courtyard works - they mention rain falling in the suite? But I couldn't visually see it! You have added extra photos that weren't in the article - thanks!

I LOVE those dining chairs, am on a look-out for some for my kitchen, want them in red and black!

I was scrolling through these pictures and have to say, I had to stop and go back and just stare at the photo of the bike against the brick wall. I loooove it! I don't know what it was but it totally just out too me and I love it! Great job

Oooh, I love this home! The exposed brick walls are fabulous - love the colour and texture that they add to the space.

I'm in the middle of painting my front door the same shade of blue as the cushions on the bed. I've been debating using red as an accent colour in the entry, and now I'm pretty sure that's the way I'm going to go :-)
