Okay, so the real question is: who is your favorite? Are you more into Drew’s negotiating and pillow-fluffing skills, or do you, too, have a penchant for plaid flannel and love of subway tiles like Jonathan? Yes, that’s right, the charismatically-Canadian home reno gurus who made us all yearn for an open concept kitchen are making their way to Marin while promoting their first-ever book. Dream Home serves as a comprehensive source and covers much of what the duo deals with on the four (yea, there’s four) HGTV shows, mainly: the ins and outs of buying, selling and renovating a house, with hundreds of full-color photos throughout to the book, to boot.
This weekend the duo will be stopping by Book Passage in Corte Madera to sign copies of their book and discuss all things home. What better opportunity can you think of to get advice about the island you want to do away with/gas fireplace you’re considering/laminate floors you’re sick of/if you should stand on the right or left when taking a photo with the towering twins?
If You Go:
When: Sunday, April 10 from 11am to 12:30pm
Where: Book Passage Corte Madera, 51 Tamal Vista
Cost: $38, includes signed book
