  • Brent & Josh Beekman from the Cooking Channel’s “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” will speak on stage showing how to bring Farm to Table to your home, plus how to put a stylish stamp on seasonal living.

If you didn’t realize sheds could be chic, be prepared to be astonished by “Shedquarters,” three fully-furnished sheds turned into unique backyard getaways. You’ll find creative ideas for your outdoor living space, such as a shed with a wine tasting room, a writers retreat and a French country cottage. This exhibit features creations from the members of the Interior Redesign + Staging Association. Shedquarters is sure to give you some inspiration for updating your own shed and outdoor space!

There will be 300+ vendors in the exhibitor hall, showcasing the latest products and services in home improvement, design and décor. My husband’s outdoor lighting company Enlightened Lighting will be at booth #111, so if you come to the show be sure to stop by and say hi!


Be sure to check out the full stage schedule, so you can find out when your favorite celebrities and TV and radio personalities will be speaking.

I hope you’ll join me and plan to visit the Capital Home Show! Gear up for your fall home improvement projects and get expert tips from local contractors, designers and celebrity guests.
