The Golden, Vintage-Inspired Home of Sarah Shabacon

I feel like I totally lucked out on Instagram yesterday. I struck upon the account of Sarah Shabacon. Not only does Sarah totally rock all her outfits, she also has a gorgeous family (including husband Ryan and sons Isaac and Ziggy) and the most beautiful home just outside Vancouver, British Columbia. Her personal style and home is testimony to her heritage - her grandfather was a collector, her grandmother is "the most glamorous woman I know" - and she spent her childhood exploring vintage shops with her Mother. Sarah's shop BOHÈME - selling unique vintage items and ethically made pieces "with stories and lives lived far beyond your walls"  - was a natural evolvement. Welcome to a world filled with warm, golden tones and one-off treasures.

The Raffia Mirror is from Moroccan based online shop LRNC - warning: I just got stuck there for the best part of 30 minutes - they sell the most beautiful things! The cream pom pom cushion is available here*

Ikea svalnäs shelves are filled with vintage items and interesting curiosities.  

The kitchen / dining area is made up of almost entirely natural materials including wood, rattan and fluffy sheepskin.

I love how her son is sitting on his heels - no way I could sit like that even for a few seconds!

How fab is this headboard? It's an IKEA hack made up of two Mandal headboards which Sarah picked up on Craigs List.

Source a wooden clothes rack here*. The fan is from Bohème.

The pieces hanging in Sarah's wardrobe represent the colour palette used throughout her home: rust, brown, cream and rose.

Ahhh, I so enjoyed this home tour. The warm tones, the one-off pieces, the natural materials, everything! How about you?

Could you imagine have a colour palette like this in your living space?

For more inspiration it's totally worth hopping over to Sarah's IG account.

Oh and look out for a mini tour of Ziggy and Isaac's room later (it was way too pretty just to throw in at the end of this tour!).

For more sepia-inspired inspiration, you might like to check out: Audrey Rivet's beige-tinted apartment (I never tire of her cat, he's amazing!), Chestnut tones in a delightful Swedish family home and a lovely Stockholm home inspired by imperfection.

Vi ses senare!

  1. It looks like it's in Barbados or somewhere much sunnier than rainy Vancouver. lovely!

    1. Now you mention it, it really does! It's so rainy in Malmö right now too - I think I need to make my home look more like this to bring a little sunshine to our life!

    2. I spent 2 weeks for Christmas holidays in Vancouver and it rained every day. This house with all the terracotta colours and natural wood would have helped. Thank you for the inspiration.
