Comments 112 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Fall is the perfect time to refresh your home decor, as temperatures dip and we cozy up for the season. The Vancouver Home and Design Show has handpicked the industry’s top experts to offer up useful, real-world advice for every home, from top celebrity guests and homegrown Vancouver talent alike. Join the fun and get tons of inspiration at this year’s event, happening October 27-30 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.


Vancouver Home and Design Show

HGTV’s Mia Parres & Rob Evans of The Expandables will be on the Urban Barn Main Stage presented by Vancouver Sun, where they will make their Vancouver home show debut and offer up their signature advice for creating extra space in impossible places. Look for Colin & Justin, stars of W Network’s Game of Homes and Cottage Life’s Cabin Pressure and local real estate expert Todd Talbot of W Network’s Love It Or List It Vancouver. Vancouver’s very own top designers will also be on hand, including Jamie Banfield and Kristina Hibbs.

Catch award-winning Vancouver culinary legends as they take to the state-of-the-art Samsung Cooking Stage for live cooking demos. Watch, learn and ask the Chefs your burning questions during a post-demo Q&A. Don’t miss your chance to take notes from the greats and bring home their culinary expertise.

With the brand-new WORKSHOP presented by Z95.3, you can bring your DIY visions to life by learning from the pros in this hands-on workshop series curated by some of Vancouver’s finest local artisans. From learning the lost art of calligraphy with Fox and Flourish to creating your very own floral wreath with Celsia Floral, to a sewing and design tutorial from Spool of Thread or hand-looming with Lucy Poskitt, there’s plenty of room to get creative.

Shop and consult more than 350 trusted brands and local companies, all under one roof. Don’t miss the always-popular Ask a Designer booth presented by the BCIT Interior Design Program in support of Kids Help Phone and Homes for the Holidays tour, where you’ll have the chance to snag a free, one-on-one consultation with BCIT’s design students, each paired with a local, well-established alumnus.
