Every Room In This Charming Heritage Apartment Tells A Story

Picture a place where the snow falls softly outside French windows, the doorways are draped with pine boughs and the sweet aroma of sugar cookies hangs in the air. It’s the stuff of feel-good films like It’s a Wonderful Life, but to Vancouver stylist and store owner Heather Ross, it’s not silver screen magic, it’s home. “The history and charm of the building invited me to be a bit more decorative this year,” says Heather, who traded a modern condo for a 1912 heritage building in Vancouver’s South Granville neighborhood (a sought-after address reportedly once home to both Justin Trudeau and Sarah McLachlan).

For her first Christmas in the apartment, Heather blended her signature coastal palette of blue and green with aged silver and pale lavender. Walls as white as meringue, original mouldings and a vintage fireplace set the tone for her nostalgic approach.
