After four incredible days at last weekend's Vancouver Home + Design Show, we had to say goodbye. We know it's hard, but all good things must come to an end - and what a whirlwind weekend it was!

Missed the show? We've curated our favourite moments to make you feel as though you were there for every important moment.

Our favourite Scots, Colin & Justin, brightened up the Metrie Main Stage with their signature humour and styling tips for bringing Canadian cottage style into any home.

The one and only Bryan Baeumler took to the Metrie Main Stage to share his renovation know-how with his adoring Vancouver fans.

Things heated up on the Vancouver Magazine Cooking Stage with the Samsung Cooking Challenge: Tag Team Kitchen, hosted by Chef Corbin Tomaszeski. Elaine Vuong and her professional partner, Geoff Rogers of Blacktail Florist, beat out the competition and Elaine walked away with $5,000 worth of Samsung Appliances. What a win!

Urban Barn's Next Top Designer: Reloaded stole the show when three local undiscovered designers and decorators went head-to-head in the ultimate micro-management exercise. Each contestant designed a 150 square-foot space with $5,000 worth of Urban Barn furniture and accessories for display (and public vote). The winner, up-and-coming decorator Dexter Dolores, went home with $1,000 to Urban Barn, a feature in Westcoast Homes & Design magazine, and a 10x10 booth at the Vancouver Home + Design Show, 2015. Congrats, Dexter!

The Ultimate Upcycle Challenge 3: ChairLIFT raised over $600 for Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver and their affiliated ReStores. The chair with the top bid? That went to the friendly decorator herself, Christine Friend, for her fun and sporty Canucks chair.

We're also proud to announce the winners of the Best Booth Awards, including:
Congrats to everyone! We're sending loads of gratitude to all of the guests, exhibitors, and presenters that made the Vancouver Home + Design Show 2014 so memorable.
