Kitsilano Vancouver Colours

While visiting my sister and her husband in Vancouver, I was so inspired by the abundance of colour, especially in their neighbourhood - the very stylish Kitsilano. It seemed like every house had a glorious cottage garden and heavy peonies and rose heads dotted yards.

Even the sidewalk in front of the storefronts was ablaze with lush flowers and herbs. The rainbow colours were also reflected in fun stores like Cupcakes by Heather and Lori (they have their own kooky reality TV show in Canada), David's Tea (an amazing range of beautifully-packaged teas and brewing accoutrement), and Lululemon of course (a Kitsilano original - the first store opened here in 2000). Maybe all the colour is a foil for the often-grey sky and frequent rain showers? Or a product there-of. Here are some happy snaps from Kitsilano to brighten your day...

I can also highly recommend the vegetarian restaurant The Naam, Sophie's Cosmic Cafe, and The Boathouse Restaurant - all excellent. Have you been to Kitsilano? Do you have any travel recommendations for this great neighbourhood?
