Vancouver Candle Company’s ‘Gastown’ Candle. With scents of Leather, Tobacco, Amber and Black Pepper.

The afternoon started with the pop of a champagne cork as we all settled into the modern luxury of Market by Jean-Georges, our 2014 venue for the Good Space Christmas Party. Surrounded by the people that make the Good Space world happen, we toasted the friends and family while we enjoyed a delightfully scrumptious lunch. Afterwards, we all received gifts from Brent and Dwaina curated from the local design community. We all loved our GasTown candles from the Vancouver Candle Company. This great little Vancouver gem produces soy candles that represent all of our favorite local haunts including; Point Grey, Kitsilano, Strathcona and Fairview. Then there were the scrumptious jewelry and scarves given to our fabulous design team from one of the most well loved independent shops in Vancouver, House of Jewels.

Located in the middle of the West End at the corner of Barclay and Nicola this wonderful little gem is owned by two sisters and has been a institution of Vancouver style for over 20 years. We highly recommend a personal visit next time you are in the area.

Thanks to all of our friends for another great year. We can’t wait to share our year and designs  with you in 2015.

I am devoted to making people love living in their homes. I have done that with absolute joy for most of my life and as a career for the past 20 years or so... I am a homebody – I do not actively seek adventure but I have had adventures. I believe home is the most sacred and important place in the world. I say I grew up on a farm – but I doubt technically it would qualify as a farm. Five acres – one milk cow – one calf - we ate them when they grew up, lots of chickens and a few pigs – we ate them too… I was that kid who dragged rugs and furniture out to the orchard and set up outdoor rooms. It mixed my two favourite things – outside and comfortable furniture. My friends and I would sleep outside in my “rooms”. It was magical because my ceiling was full of stars. I have lived in small houses, big houses, basement suites, cottages, condos and apartments. I have built and I have renovated houses. For a short time in my young life I was without a home – this changed me. I have lived with pets, wanted and unwanted – rodents are unwanted… I have lived in a house richly full with the raising of my four children. I have had the tremendous joy of my children carrying my grandchildren into my home. I have had my home become an “empty nest” and my life shrunken and shattered with the loss of my beloved husband. Home and my people there have always been my comfort. It does not matter where home is, it only matters that you are in it and that you find comfort there and that is why I do what I do.
