Our homes are more than a place to lay our heads at the end of a long day. Their decor reflects who we are and who we aspire to be—spaces that may double as a workplace, where we entertain friends and family, and where we sleep, eat, and relax.
Whether you are moving into a new home or feel it is time to switch things up, in Vancouver, we have many incredibly eclectic small businesses open to assist you in building personal style within a budget.
Today we share our five go-to home decor stores that are great places to source unique items for your interiors.
