Shop Love: Homewerx In Vancouver

31 October 2013 0


Travel memories linger on for a long while. At least they do with me. And some very peculiar travel memories are my numerous visits to inspiring home décor and interior design shops around the globe. Last month I spent a few days in the Canadian city of Vancouver – you can read my blog post here. There, I discovered a few amazing interiors stores like this one and like today’s shop love – Homewerx on Davie Street in the West End of Vancouver.

As an ‘Urban Jungle Blogger’ I was drawn into the store by the teasing sight of lots of greens in the store – the selection of air plants was immense as was the selection of creative terrariums and hanging planters. I was smitten by the rock crystals on offer (I had to buy one) as well as by the fine range of scented candles and stationery. 

Another highlight were the home textiles and décor elements – I spotted lots of Ferm Living there and was proud to see good European brands on the other end of the world. The rear end of the store has a good range of household products and crockery for stylish homes. Moreover, I learned that many interior stylists shop for props at Homewerx. 

Homewerx seeks to cater the modern lifestyle with a fine mix of home décor, home textiles, books, stationery and music, gourmet food and kitchen accessories, all carefully curated by the shop owner. I was absolutely charmed by the shop and loved every bit of it. As you can imagine, I didn’t leave the store empty handed. And I doubt anyone of you would have.

What do you think of today’s shop love?

    Cool place Igor and very you, especially those green ferns & shrubs. I love the ‘urban jungle blogger’ label. Great ceiling too. There are too many bits for me, but I can spy a few things such as the grey throw & those slippers 🙂

      I’m pretty sure you would have found something nice for your taste, too! And yes, this was like the best stop for my urban jungle blogger gene:-)

    You seem to have found all gems in Vancouver. Yet another great shop I would love to visit. I have a glass bauble like the one in your photo, just wish I had a few more so I could copy their idea with succulents. Do they have a web shop? Let’s find out.
