One of Canada's largest expos, the 2014 Home and Garden Expo, is underway at Tradex in Abbotsford from Friday to Sunday.

The event is the biggest ever, featuring more than 300 sold-out booths and display gardens. Visitors get to sample the newest and greatest of everything for the home in one place.

Special guests include Jane Lockhart, the host of W Network's Colour Confidential, who is appearing all three days to share her expertise on design and colour.

Designer, spokesperson, author and television personality, Lockhart is one of Canada’s best-known experts in the world of design and colour. She has been practising interior design in Toronto since 1997 as principal of her firm Jane Lockhart Interior Design.

After six successful seasons as creative director and host of W Network’s top-ranked Colour Confidential, which also airs on HGTV U.S., Lockhart continues to grow her sense of design and colour through a number of exciting new projects.

Designed by Lockhart for the design and architectural trades, the Jane Lockhart Platinum Series, a Canadian-built, eco-conscious luxury furniture collection, was launched in early 2011 at the Interior Design Show.

Lockhart's new Canadian-built collection, Jane by Jane Lockhart, launched in spring 2012 and is now available at major and independent retailers across Canada.

Lockhart’s design work is regularly featured in regional and national publications in Canada and United States including Canadian Living, Homes & Living B.C., Toronto Homes, Reno & Décor, Home Décor and Renovations and This Old House.

You’ll also find Lockhard appearing on CTV’s Marilyn Denis Show, CityTV’s Cityline, Global’s Morning Show and CHCH Morning Live.
