This past winter, we launched our search for the next big name in design, entertaining and all things lifestyle, alongside Urban Barn and WesternLiving magazine. We combed all of British Columbia and Alberta to find the official spokesperson for this fall’s home and design shows in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver - and found you, did we ever! From Vancouver to Stony Plain, Calgary to Kamloops, Nanaimo to Medicine Hat, applicants came out in droves to stake their claim to the title of Western Canada’s Next Home Stylist, not to mention a prize package including a $1,000 Urban Barn shopping spree, media exposure across two provinces, and much more.

And now, we’re ready to announce our three finalists.

Tijana Popovic from Vancouver, British Columbia was a blogger at heart before she even knew what blogging was! A born frugalista, Tijana is the Do-It-Yourself maven behind the blog, Frugal Living Adventures.
