Hello Everyone,

After a lot of consideration I have decided to stop blogging.  It is time to move on to other pursuits and - sadly - this is one thing I need to leave behind to make room for other dreams...


I started this little blog on a snowy winter day in Munich in December of 2009, never imagining all of the great things that it would bring to me.  I have connected with many like-minded design enthusiasts around the world that made me laugh, think and grow my design-self. I have made so many wonderful friends - both virtual and in person - via this wonderful community of ours!   I hope I have brought something fun, interesting and/or inspirational to each of you as well!  

I am so grateful for all of the warmth, support, loyalty and enthusiasm all of you have shown me.  Thank you so much for following along on this journey with me. I will miss you all!

Warmest Regards,

Eye On Vancouver: Beautiful Homes

As I said in my post on Monday, we just returned from a long weekend in Vancouver.  What a gorgeous city with tons of waterways and beautiful outdoor spaces, but also neighborhoods with beautiful homes! 

We stumbled upon the most idyllic neighborhood near Kitsilano Beach while we were up there.  I absolutely loved this neighborhood and here are some reasons why:  The houses were large, but not ridiculously so.  They were also all slightly different, but all in good taste (at least in my opinion!).  I was impressed that they were all beautifully maintained - unlike in Seattle, where even in the nicest neighborhoods you get the occasional neglected home or eyesore.  Lastly, they all had gorgeous gardens and charming tree lined streets.  Let's take a look together, shall we?  :)

A lovely traditional home... 

Beautiful detailing around that stately front door! 

 All of the streets had this lush greenery arching over the streets - how charming!

I always melt over a round window, and how about those hydrangeas and boxwoods?  

A lovely little terrace above the front door...

This one really drew me in with its masculine appeal.  Don't miss that great little seating area upstairs...I presume off of the master bedroom.

The same house around the's a stunner!

This one reminded me of some of the Munich mansions I had shared with you all quite a while grand.

I hope you enjoyed the tour.  Any favorites?
