Midnight shopping .CA

 Some Great Canadian Online Home Decor shops!

Happy Friday !

We love and always encourage shopping locally and in person. There is nothing better than scoring a treasure in a local one of a kind shop and better yet meeting the owner. Supporting your community is as Martha would say : "A Good Thing!" See a list of our favourite local

(Victoria) shops here. Check them out this weekend!

Now having said that sometimes it is necessary to go online and search for inspiration and decor bits a little further afield and delivered right to your door! I am a big fan of PJ wearing / tea drinking evening surfing. My surfing is sometimes client related but also in reality it usually turns from "sourcing" to oohing and ahhing  and then clicking add to cart for my own home! (more about this amazing local service below)

Some Canadian shops to check out...

The Cross 

Based out of recreated for us to browse and purchase online!! Love everything at The Cross.  Co-owners Darci Ilich and Stephanie Vogler describe their shop experience as, ‘a relaxed feeling, yet complemented with beautifully appointed luxury items and found objects, sexy antiques and exquisite furnishings.’ WOW!


HomeSav is a decor based discount deal-a day-retailer that operates along the same lines as "Groupon" . Canadian ( Toronto) founders say " Our goal is top delight and wow consumers by making it easy to shop for and discover new things to make their home beautiful." Some really great always do your homework before you buy!

Love this uniquely Canadian owned and operated company. "Modern Design with a Canadian Twist"  Their mission: "To be a dynamic online source of inspiration for lovers of modern design and interior decor in Canada."  Beautiful contemporary furniture and decor with a fabulously simple online process. Love that!!  * free shipping for most orders over $100.00

A collection of stylishly affordable art prints. Buying art is hard and daunting and mostly expensive! This Victoria  (yay!) based retailer supports up and coming artists from all over the world. Prints and originals available at very good prices.

Ever heard of this place? Not new but always updating, improving, creating and inspiring!! Love IKEA...can't get enough. Shop online 24/7 :) We also love the IKEA hacks (ways to reinvent and make IKEA pieces even better!) watch for our favourite easy-peasy DIY IKEA coming soon:)

Also as I mentioned earlier...Add2Cart...Fab Victoria based delivery service. You shop online, give them your list and they bring it back to Victoria. Fast simple and affordable. We have also hooked up with them (click to see!) to offer styling and design assistance for all of that awesome new stuff in your place after its delivered! 
Add2Cart also delivers lots of other retailers in Vancouver...CB2, West Elm, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware.

So have fun poking about some local shops or PJ surfing online. I also would be remiss not to mention that if you are stuck with what to buy or have purchased and don't know what to do with it call in the experts! Local stylists and designers can help make quick and beautiful work of your unique purchases!!

Have a great weekend!
