For would-be renovators and homebuilders, inspiration is crucial to a successful project, and homeowners will find plenty in the 2013 Boulevard Design Annual, available in select locations from Victoria to Nanaimo this week. This hardcover book, assembled by the staff of Boulevard magazine, offers 80 full-colour pages of unique homes and the businesses that created them.

“The Boulevard Design Annual is a beautiful compilation showcasing the work of talented craftspeople in our communities,” says Penny Sakamoto, group publisher for Black Press on Southern Vancouver Island. “We are pleased to be able to share the outstanding homes they have crafted, from the big picture down to the smallest details.”

Twenty of the top builders and suppliers from Greater Victoria to Nanaimo are featured in the book, says Pat Montgomery-Brindle, senior account manager at Boulevard magazine. “It has lots of ideas, from renovating a kitchen to dreaming up a whole house,” she says. In addition to spreads showing the work of various builders, suppliers and designers, this coffee table book also includes question-and-answer pages with the experts, before-and-after reveals, tips for kitchens, and ideas for flooring.

“It shares what is new out there as far as products go, and how to hire an interior designer to help with your project,” Montgomery-Brindle says. “It would make a perfect Christmas present for anyone who wants to build a new house or renovate an existing house — or someone who just wants to dream about it.”
