It’s fall again, and along with crisper weather, colourful foliage and pumpkin pie, that means it’s time for the Vancouver Home + Design Show.

This year is proud to be a sponsor of this amazing exhibition, which will showcase everything we love about homes, design and renovation. It all takes place inside BC Place stadium from Thursday October 16 through Sunday October 19.

Acres of inspiration along with celebrity guests like Bryan Baeumler of HGTV's Leave it to Bryan, the UK design duo of Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan, and "frugalista" design guru Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault.

And speaking of frugal, the Ultimate Upcycle Challenge returns for the third year. Local celebrities take an ordinary, pre-loved chair and turn into a work of art which will be auctioned off. Proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity, the non-profit that builds affordable homes for families in need and also runs those epicentres of upcycling, the ReStores.
