With spring just around the corner, the Victoria Home & Garden Show is returning to the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre for the weekend of March 9 to 11. Presented by the Canadian Home Builder’s Association of Victoria (CHBA), this year’s show features a special guest, Jillian Harris of Jillian Harris Design Inc, host of HGTV’s Canada’s Handyman Challenge, HGTV’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and also ABC’s The Bachelorette. Jillian has been an interior designer for more than a decade and offers a refreshing “design by personality” philosophy to her clients.
There will be many exhibitors at the show displaying the latest and greatest in home & garden products and design ideas. CHBA members Small Modern Living and EcoTec Homes have partnered to create a show suite demonstrating laneway/garden housing unique to the Capital Region. The Studio37 Garden Home is a simple and versatile 400 square foot self-contained unit designed as a one bedroom, or office/ studio. The City of Victoria has recently included garden suites in their development/zoning guidelines. There will be a number of other demonstrations and exhibitors. For a complete list, click here.
