We didn’t think it was possible, but Fernwood just got a whole lot trendier thanks to its latest addition, Pigeonhole Home Store. On the corner of Stanley Avenue and Begbie Street, Pigeonhole is all things lovely. From antique furniture and art straight from your great-grandmother’s attic to worn leather baseball gloves and typewriters, Pigeonhole is a vintage-lover’s dream come true. Our recent visit had us swooning over a pair of retro suitcases and a pile of old books, but we have our eye on some new goods too – like dishes fit for that farm house we’ve always wanted. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next time!
Find Pigeonhole Home Store at 1606 Stanley Avenue, Victoria BC.
Vacation is fast approaching and we’re California dreamin’ around the clock. 1. It was love at first click when we came across travel blog A Hotel Life – it’s “your really cool friend that constantly travels the world staying at the most interesting places you can lay your head.” 2. How can you not love Joy Cho? The girl’s guide to the best of the best in LA has us making all sorts of travel plans. 3. Lucky for us, Portland’s on the way. Who better to show us the ropes than the kings and queens of the castle, Kinfolk. Both guides are from the lovely Design*Sponge. 4. They say it’s sunny down south. We don’t dare step outside without our Warby Parker sunnies. We’ve raved about them before, and we’ll do it again.
We love our loved ones daily, and so does the designer behind loveyoudaily.tumblr.com, a site dedicated to telling his wife he loves her – every day. Now that’s some romance we can get behind.
Happy Valentine’s Day, darlings! xo
1. We swoon over a beautiful printed magazine. Anthology is the bee’s knees. 2. Of a Kind promotes on-the-rise designers by sharing their stories and giving you access to their limited and unique pieces – clothing, jewelry, home goods etc. 3. Sadie Stein recently left her post as Editor at The Paris Review, and lucky for us she’s now a regular contributor. We lose hours reading her witty and often personal essays on The Paris Review Daily. 4. We love the look of succulents tucked into a floral bouquet – Spring is coming!
