a new year means new & returning design shows

January 2

With the calendar turning over to a new year, new seasons and new series of design shows are once again on the TV schedule. On Tuesday January 4th CBC’s Steven & Chris returns from a holiday hiatus. In this particular episode you will likely see a familiar face (airing at 2pm local time across Canada). Back before Christmas, Vitania Liscio of Verdigris Vie arranged for a handful of us design and lifestyle bloggers to take a break from our regularly scheduled days and take in a taping of  the show, from the front row of the audience.

In this photo, between the S & C design duo, is Dane Caldwell of 2 Hounds Design, Jennifer Borgh of Jennifer Borgh Events and Vitania. Vicky Weiss of Mom Who Runs was also part of the group, but someone had to take the photo. Andrea Mills and Jennifer Murray of Canadian House & Home also joined us at the taping, but missed out on the photo op as they were strategically hiding in the second row.

Always a fan of the British home and design shows, I’m looking forward to these two shows, new to us on this side of the pond…
