Sexy in the City

By 12/20/2008January 23rd, 20174 Comments

I was lucky enough to be invited to Patricia Gray’s holiday open house in her brand new, completely renovated, swanky townhouse right downtown in my favorite section of the city [I have always wanted to see what the inside of these fabulous walk-ups look like].

I have a few sneak peaks of her place, [to be officially photographed and published very soon] I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of this little ‘tablescape’ in her fabulous modern ensuite!

There’s something so sexy about a contemporary space juxtaposed with antiques, Patricia is a master at combining the two! This is a photo from her blog showcasing her recently installed custom made banquette in her breakfast nook, antique Georgian chairs, upholstered in white leather and a contemporary Saarinen table.

She had this Hermes blanket (in beige and cream) draped over a chair in her living room.

I met another blogger, Michelle Morelan from A Schematic Life.

We met two lovely women from Lightform, Jaime Bishop and Heather Merenda.

It was a rare [for Vancouver] and wonderful snowy evening, this is a shot of the lights and snow on the tree right outside her place from her den. You can just see a corner of the fuzzy, faux fur throw on her white slipcovered sofa! Love the simple panel with the black border!

Patricia’s Christmas tree was simple but sexy, decorated with silver and red balls, and then she had placed vases of lush evergreens throughout her townhouse.

This is Patricia’s brother-in-law John who is her supplier of high-end hard window coverings which had recently been installed on all her windows!

There were many books in her fabulous library that I need to add to mine, here is my favourite,  It’s beautiful! Full of luxurious images with all my favourite colours!

    What a nice time…although after looking at the pics, I am on a diet of apples, rye crisp and tuna!

    You and Patricia look gorgeous and her place…well just amazing! You are a couple of classy chicks!


    Wow! Wow!

    That looked like a cool party. Patricia’s place shined in those pictures. Really cool entry – I am always curious to see my colleagues places.

    All my blogger friends looked so stylish 🙂
