At the BC Home + Garden Show, there’s advice, information and inspiration for every home improvement project. Our favourites:
HGTV Main Stage-Friday, February 21 at 1pm, Western Living editor Anicka Quin and stylist Nicole Sjostedt dig deep into the power of Pantone to help you grapple with colour and how it can change your life, or at least your home. As a bonus you can stick around for former BC Lion Kicker Paul McCallum’s chat about the CFL, Real Estate and Fatherhood, but not necessarily in that order.
West Coast Power Smart Home-If home remodeling is the stuff of your nightmares, go for a whole new house instead. Enter this year’s Dream Home contest, where the trifecta of home improvement, green living and modern west coast design intersects in a marriage of style and sustainability. This tiny dwelling takes its cues from the Pacific Northwest’s breathtaking wood and seascapes while delivering interiors punch in eco-chic comfort.
Better Gnomes & Gardens-Inspired by the world-renowned Chelsea Flower Show’s call to lift a century-long ban on garden gnomes in 2013, Vancouver personalities (Steve Darling, Global BC; Andrea Bellamy of heavypetal.ca) show off their creative flair by turning a plain garden gnome into a whimsical treasure (is there any other kind?). Guests bid on their favourites to benefit Sole Food Street Farms, an urban agricultural community dedicated to transforming empty lots into fruitful farming plots, empowering and employing the underprivileged along the way.
