{Guest Blogger} There's No Place Like Here

Etsy - Hindsvik Video Stills - 8

If you read Pure Green Magazine, then I'm sure you are familiar with Daniel and Valeria from Hindsvik. Their home was featured in the November/December issue of Pure Green, pgs. 82-89. Etsy recently made a "There's No Place Like Here" video about them and their Scandinavian-inspired home. Filmed by Pascal Perich with music by Daniel Garbutt on his 1920's piano, this film is a beautiful look into the charming Port Colborne, Ontario, home of vintage online shop owners, Daniel and Valeria.

Here are a few of my favourite still from the film...

I often have dreams of doing exactly what Daniel and Valeria have done. Packing our bags and moving to a small town. I love the city, but as I get older (turning the big 3-0 in a matter of a few short weeks) the calm, quiet and natural setting (as well as much lower housing prices) call to me in my dreams.

I found this film very inspiring. It's great to see what a couple can do with their own hands. Although there are no "before" photos (you can find those on the Hindsvik blog under the renovations link), I'm pretty confident that my mind can adequately imagine the huge transformation that they've made since buying their house.

Thanks for sharing Hindsvik and Etsy!
