The annual Vancouver Home + Design Show will return to BC Place starting on Oct. 16, showcasing the latest trends and tips for homeowners.

Among the highlights this year will be celebrity guests such as Bryan Baeumler, host of HGTV’s Leave it to Bryan and House of Bryan, and celebrity interior designers Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan, currently stars of Cottage Life TV’s Colin and Justin’s Cabin Pressure.

“We are so excited to welcome our favourite designing duo back to the Vancouver Home + Design Show!” says Jill Kivett, regional director at Marketplace Events. who owns and operates the Vancouver Home + Design Show. “Colin and Justin made their Vancouver debut at our show in spring 2007, and we can’t wait for our show-goers to get re-acquainted. From their signature humour to their spot-on design savvy, our crowds are definitely in for a well-deserved treat.”

The Metrie Main Stage will host several local experts, including Jamie Banfield of Jamie Banfield Design, Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. and Leigh-Ann Perrrault, a DIY blogger and regular contributor to Cityline.

Other highlights include the Samsung Tag Team Kitchen Challenge, indoor street market Portobello West and Ask A Designer, among others. The show runs until Sunday Oct. 19.

“Good design is all about finding your personal style and translating it effectively and affordably into everyday life,” says Kivett. “We’re looking to give every single person to walk through our show at least one tip they can use in their space, whether they rent or own. It’s take-home advice in its finest form.”
