The Passionate Home in Langley is one of those charming stores that you walk into when you just need inspiration or if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind item to complete the look of a particular room in your home. It’s also a place for unique gifts and beautiful things to give to someone special, or just take home for yourself.
The moment you walk in, you will discover beautifully designed spaces, ranging in styles from Shabby Chic to Country Cottage. The Passionate Home is a treasure trove of old mixed with new and has the feel of a flea market in some respects. It’s as though all the best finds landed here, with affordable prices and a constantly rotating stock.
In business for over five years now, The Passionate Home is owned and run by Carrie Thachuk, a woman with a keen eye for vintage and flea market treasures. Her strong eye for design has been something she has always had, along with a sense of passion and pride in her own home.
Although she had no previous retail experience before opening the store, Carrie had the desire to start her own business and often visited home decor stores that she felt were lacking. Feeling confident that she could create a store that would allow her to share her passion with others, Carrie put her money where her mouth was and opened The Passionate Home.
Carrie easily sees the potential of turning something old into something new again. She refurbishes many items herself, but also relies on a community of individuals who help her find unique pieces of furniture and antiques to bring into the store. No only are these items environmentally friendly, but they promote a great rescue and re-use mentality.
The Passionate Home offers a number of personal services to their customers, including in-home decorating consultations and custom painting for your furniture. There is also a “Wish Book” for customers to list specific items they may need help finding, since Carrie is always on the lookout.
The store has recently re-located to a space almost three times larger than the prior location and is only a short hop across the courtyard in McBurney Lane. The expanded space also allows for lots of room to wander through and discover local jewellery designers, original artwork and locally crafted creations.
