There are many perks of being a real estate agent here in Vancouver. We get to spend time outside often, we are often the first people to see our clients new homes, and we get to meet new people everyday! The coolest part is being able to walk into the homes of people that I would otherwise never have met or heard of, let alone being invited into their private space. There are all sorts of things we see by having the privilege of this access. Mostly, it is a great experience to see how people from from all walks of life decorate their homes and how they utilize the space. Sometimes we see some really odd stuff, which I will one day write about, and other times we find some very unique and memorable sights. This post is all about the wonderful things that people have come up with to use wood in creative ways to embrace the beautiful nature that we all are so lucky to be surrounded with.
The literal coat tree
This beautiful piece of scrap wood was spotted in the condo of a senior couple living in White Rock. Thankfully it was a warm day so no coats were hanging on it.
The enchanted kitchen island
I was told by the listing agent that the wood stump was carved by a local artist who is a friend of the owner of this large townhome in Port Moody.
Have a closer look! While we are at it, here is a photo of the backyard!
That's it for now. I will be adding to this post throughout the year so keep coming back!
