One of my favorite neighborhoods in Vancouver is Gastown. Picture: old buildings, pretty street lanterns and even a steam clock (oh, and some awesome boutiques, of course!). If you follow me on Instagram (find me at TheSignatureBow), you've probably seen some pictures popping by of Gastown. Truth be told, I enjoy living in a brand-new highrise, but I miss the 'character' that old buildings have. Back in the Netherlands I lived in an apartment from the 1930s and I always tell people; I wish I would have been able to just pick it up and ship it to Vancouver. Maybe it will be a while, but I know for sure that I'll end up in a loft-like apartment with brick walls, dark wooden floors and large windows (the Humphrey loft in Gossip Girl would do too). And then later on, a cute heritage house. Or a mansion. Depending on how my career will turn ;-) Tell me... what's your dream house?
