CONTEST: Enter to win 2 tickets to the Modern Home Tour here!

Maybe when you close your eyes and envision ideas for your dream home, all that comes to mind is that dusty vision board in your basement or some tumbleweeds blowing in the wind. Maybe you’re dying to see what it’s actually like to be inside an airtight “Passive House” IRL (you can breathe, don’t worry). Or maybe you just like looking inside other people’s houses and pretending you’re in an episode of The Real Housewives of Locarno Beach. Either way, the 2019 Vancouver Modern Home Tour is what you should be doing next weekend.

You can visit the homes in any order of your choosing. Just print off your map the day before and make your own itinerary. Not only will you be inspired to make your new home as aesthetically pleasing and energy friendly as possible, but you’ll also get the chance to ask the attending architects and designers all of your burning design questions.

Drumroll, please. Here are the seven homes you’ll get to take a peek at:

A brand-new modern mansion overlooking Locarno Beach, designed by Frits de Vries Architect, built by Skynet Developers, and currently listed for $12.8 million.
