Vancouver Home + Design Show 2016: Fall Home Trends and Expert Advice, All Under One Roof What is the best bang for your dollar in terms of renovations?

W

estern Canada’s largest and longest running fall consumer event comes to Vancouver on October 27. The 33rd annual Vancouver Home + Design Show, which last year attracted nearly 40,000 visitors, will help inspire and motivate you to transform your home. From TV celebrities to award-winning local interior designers to manufacturers of everything to create a beautiful home, as the show’s director Tyson Kidd says, “It’s all under one roof.” REW.ca spoke to show speakers Mia Parres and Rob Evans, stars of the HGTV’s hit shows The Expandables and Home to Win, to get their take on what’s new, what’s out and what to do (or not to do) in home renovations.

Rob: The best bang for your buck is making smart investments. Even countertops can be a place where going with quartz in a timeless colour selection – think solids with a minimal amount of movement, or a bold marble replica – will stand the test of time.

What is the biggest decor or renovation mistake home owners make? Rob: The biggest mistake in renovations we’re seeing is poor planning. Homeowners need to make sure they budget properly, plan their renovation spaces in the correct order if they plan on tackling multiple floors, and measure everything twice.

What are some of the most unique trends this fall? Mia: Herringbone – we’re seeing a lot this pattern everywhere – on the floors, walls, and in the textures in our spaces. Fall is the time for layering up and popping this trend into a throw over your sofa, or as a new design feature in a backsplash. And if you’re looking for design inspiration, it makes the perfect backdrop for a fall fireplace. Another fabulous trend is marble, and lots of it. We’re all familiar with the classic marble countertop, but that comes at a price. This fall we’re seeing a lot of marble in accessories, which is a smart way to add in dimension into your space (think coasters, cutting boards and even frames) without breaking the bank.

Should one follow trends?

Anything new in the renovation business?

Mia: Passé for me would have to be (and Rob will love this!) televisions that aren’t mounted on the wall. I think these days it’s a really lovely touch to have your cords hidden away. It allows the space to breathe a little bit and is something everyone can do to elevate their space.

Mia: On the design end of renovation, we are seeing a lovely swing in renovation for homeowners learning to love their homes again by investing in small updates in their spaces. From new pot lights, to opening up spaces by relocating often-obtrusive HVACs, homeowners are thinking smarter, saving more in moving costs, and falling back in love with their homes.

GO TO

REW.CA /NEWS TO READ THESE STORIES AND MUCH MORE REAL ESTATE NEWS AND ADVICE

Mia: Trends can be very cyclical, so I always suggest taking a classic slant to any trends that you want to pour a chunk of your budget into. If you love a certain tile pattern, perhaps do it in neutral colours so that you don’t tire of it. If you love colour, think twice before investing in colour appliances, unless that is the look you’re going for. But if you want to have fun with trendy accessories, I think it’s very inspirational to pop over to your local accessory vendor and spruce up your home with trendy items that will help give you fresh eyes on your home and living space.

What is really passé?

MAHOGANY AT MILL LAKE FUSES URBAN AND RURAL LIVING

W

hen Sandy’s husband Bob Blue retired, both felt their 4,500-square-foot home was way too big for the two of them. They decided to give condominium living a chance. “We sold our house three years ago and bought a condo in a low-rise,” says Sandy Blue. “We found we really enjoy condo living.” However, when the couple heard about Mahogany at Mill Lake in Abbotsford, they knew they wanted to live there. “We loved that it was located by Mill Lake and that we would have amazing views,” she adds. Soon after, they purchased a two-bedroom residence on the 16th floor. “We are so excited … our entire suite has floor-to-ceiling windows and we have incredible views of Mount Baker,” she says. “Mill Lake is a jewel right in the city. Not only are we next to a large lake, we are surrounded by protected green space.” Blue’s comments are echoed over and over again by buyers, says Karen Gallant, sales manager at Mahogany at Mill Lake. “With prices starting from $284,900, Mahogany is

selling extremely well,” says Gallant. “We have already sold nearly 75 per cent of the suites. What buyers tell us is they love the views and the amenities we offer.” Quantum Properties’ Mahogany at Mill Lake is a sleek, contemporary 26-storey concrete high rise offering a collection of 152 condominiums, ranging from 620 to 1,535 square feet. (Three-level penthouses boast more than 2,800 square feet.) “We are going to have three floors of commercial space. It will include a bistro, great to meet up with friends over coffee or pick up a quick dinner-to-go,” says Gallant. With views of Mill Lake to the North East and Mount Baker to the South East, each residence delivers panoramas. With floor-to-ceiling windows and generous decks and terraces, residents can enjoy their coffee while taking in the vistas. Each home will feature nine-foot ceilings, Canadianmade engineered hardwood flooring, natural gas fireplaces, KitchenAid appliance package and quartz or granite countertops. “Fourth-floor homes will have large terrace decks with built-in barbecues, planters and fireplaces,” says Gallant.

Residents will also enjoy private amenities, including an indoor pool and hot tub, fitness studio with changing rooms and showers, two guest suites and a club room with full kitchen. In addition, for the handyman, there will be a workshop in the parkade. In an effort to be as sustainable as possible, Mahogany is equipped with geothermal heating and cooling, energy efficient windows, LED lighting and other environmentally friendly features. Mahogany offers plenty of conveniences, including transit, schools, great shops and restaurants, all within easy walking or driving distance. “You can walk to both Sevenoaks Shopping Centre and West Oak Mall,” Gallant adds. Quantum Properties is a locally owned and family-run company with more than 15 years of building quality condominium projects. Mahogany at Mill Lake Presentation Centre, 2180 Gladwin Road, Abbotsford, is open every day (except Fridays), from noon to 5pm. For more information, call 778-255-9990 or visit www.LivingMahogany.com. Tentative occupancy is slated for summer 2018.
