We were out in B.C. two weeks ago for a quick business trip to Kelowna, and although there wasn’t a whole lot of time to take in much of the local scenery, I still managed to scope out a few eye-catching decor and home furnishings stores. If you find yourself out that way, take a few hours and check out these four lovelies — I may just be in love.

LAKEHOUSE HOME STORE

Situated on Bernard Avenue (Kelowna’s version of Winnipeg’s Corydon Avenue or Osborne Village), you can park your vehicle down by the marina, and walk the few short blocks to the Lakehouse Home Store. A slightly funkier version of a Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn outfit, Lakehouse is primed and fully stocked specifically for those wanting a more laid-back and beachy feel to their interiors. Items like reclaimed tables, fabulous rattan deck furniture, cheerful ikat toss pillows, and rustic driftwood-framed mirrors are only a few of the many gems hidden behind their historically preserved brick walls. Visit: lakehousehomestore.com

OLIVE & ELLE

From the moment you walk through Olive & Elle’s front doors, you’re instantly relaxed and enchanted by the airiness and openness of the quaint and repurposed architecture of the space. Housed in another vintage building, this store caters to a more feminine clientele; luxurious hand-made soaps and body lotions, cashmere bath robes, and luscious percale bed linens make up half of the store’s wares, while retrofitted industrial tripod floor lamps (picked up, re-wired, and repurposed by the owner’s husband), worn leather club chairs, and select odds and ends fill in the remainder. Visit: oliveandelle.com

LAVISH DESIGN

A tiny little spot further up Bernard Avenue, Lavish Design offers more of an organic/contemporary product to clients wanting to infuse some of the natural outdoors with a modern kick into their spaces. Lamps, tables, benches, and ottomans made from exotic hardwoods are paired with reclaimed painted pallet chairs and mirrors in this cozy little spot. Their hammered metal pendant lights, finished in gold leaf on the underside, were spectacular. Visit: lavish-design.ca

ZED HOME

My absolute favourite shop in Kelowna. Zed Home is nestled right on the corner of Water Street and Lawrence Avenue, and caters to an uber-contemporary crowd. Full of high-end designer pieces and upscale decor, clients looking for supremely unique and one-of-a-kind items will find names like Christian La Croix for Designer’s Guild, Arteriors Home, Calligaris, Martha Sturdy, Jonathan Adler, and Soho Concepts smattered about the store. If only my suitcase had been larger, I would have stuffed a gorgeous pink Lucite-framed sofa mirror in it. Visit: zedhome.ca
