Welcome to the brand-new Marketplace Events Home & Garden blog, Vancouver fans! Whether you’re an interior design buff, wannabe renovator, chic fashionista or just someone looking to spruce up their space and maybe throw a great little party to go along with it, this is the blog for you.

As for me? I’m Jill Kivett – Vancouver show manager, shopping maven, interior d├ęcor addict and sometime-home chef. I’ll be your source for everything style, design, renovation and entertaining as we lead up to the Vancouver Home + Design Show, happening October 11-14, 2012 at BC Place.

Along with my behind-the-scenes adventures, you’ll get exclusive access to our celebrity guests (hint: we’ve lined up Canada’s top experts, including a certain HGTV contractor and one Bachelorette-turned-interior design star and fabulous new features, plus recipes, special offers, DIY projects and coveted prizes from our top talent and exhibitors. Make sure you leave your comments – we’ll read every single one to make sure we give you something worth reading as we count down to the show.

So, here we go. We hope you enjoy this backstage pass to the Vancouver Home + Design Show!
