Pieza maestra por canadiense arquitecto Paul Merrick

As they say, “The more you live, the more you learn”, with this thought I start talking about this well noted Canadian Architect Paul Merrick. Paul is known in Canada as one of the best architects in the country and has won many awards. This house is a good example of his outstanding work. He’s not afraid of the new and most important, he possesses not only a vast knowledge of architecture but also has a passion for it. You cannot design a house like this one if you aren’t passionate about your work, and it’s very evident that Mr. Merrick loves what he does.

This fantastic house located in West Vancouver, British Columbia is so interesting. You’ll find something beautiful in evey direction you look. Even if this is not your style, you simply cannot deny how well it’s done and how perfect, architecturally speaking, it is.

As I was seeing these pictures, all I could think was “how would it be to have the ocean “under” your feet every day, every time you look to the horizon? Would I ever take it for granted? Would I forgive how fortunate to be there? Would I see it as “normal” instead of “divine”? Isn’t life like that sometimes? Don’t we forget to appreciate the daily beauty of our lives?

Remind yourself to be grateful for being surrounded by beauty.

I’ve enjoyed posting about this unique home. I love discovering new places, new homes… It’s like opening a treasure chest every time. Your home should be something like that for you. It can be a very rare or a not so rare kind of treasure, but it’s entirely yours… and that should be enough to be treasured.
