2020 Homes for the Holidays Home Owners
Janet & Andreas Kluftinger
Janet Kluftinger and her husband Andreas graciously featured their home on the tour last year working with a talented designer. This year with a bit more time on her hands, Janet has decided to take on the decorating herself with a theme of ‘Baking a List and Checking it Twice.’ This stunning home will be filled with the sights, sounds and smells of a cozy Canadian Christmas with homemade crafts, DIY décor and yummy baking.
Janet’s baking is a big part of the holiday. Janet has graciously shared her prize-winning Ginger Harvest Apple Pie recipe with us. This delicious pie captured first prize in the Apple Pie contest at the Kelowna Farmer’s Market in 2017.

Last year Jessalyn Broadfoot helped out another homeowner in transforming their home for the holidays. This year, her own home will be on display. She describes her holiday style as “sparkly, lively and anything that reminds you of being on holidays in the sun with a piña colada in your hand and Sarah Vaughn on the record player.” Jessalyn is a master at DIY and creates magic from her thrift store finds. This year, with the pandemic causing us to rethink our holiday plans, a tour through Jessalyn’s creative home may be our Palm Springs vacation escape.

During these unusual times, many of us are craving our fondest memories of Christmas past. Lifestyle guru and designer Jillian Harris is opening the doors to her own home to reveal her theme of a nostalgic Christmas. Neutral colours with pops of red are quintessentially holiday. Along with fresh greenery on the mantle or in wreaths on the door, it inspires wonderful memories of a perfect holiday scene. With Jillian we know it will be classy and timeless – and absolutely engaging.

Vintage enthusiast home owner Kim Andrei has renovated, decorated and styled this warm inviting home she describes as inclusive and eclectic. The home is filled with treasures she has collected over the years, mixing and matching to create a whimsical welcoming space. Kim creates many of her own holiday decorations mixing with pieces found scouring Facebook Marketplace and shops that are rich with hidden gems.
Kim decorated her tree and stair railing with a beautiful dried fruit garland. You can make your own with her simple instructions.
