Share the Warmth!


18th Annual REALTORS® CareBlanket Drive

November 26thDecember 3th, 2012

Gather your old blankets, sleeping bags and clothes for the 16th Annual REALTORS® CareBlanket Drive. Between November 26th and December 3th,participating real estate offices of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board are collecting donations for people in need of warmth this winter.

The Blanket Drive is looking to collect clean blankets, tarps, sleeping bags, and warm clothing of all shapes and sizes. Donations are distributed through local charities, churches and community service organizations. For a list of these charities and a list of donation drop-off locations see over or go to

The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive story

Way back in 1995, some caring REALTORS® in Vancouver observed the homeless situation in the city’s eastside and said to themselves, we’ve got to do something.
They put out an appeal to their fellow colleagues for warm blankets and coats and collected 600 bags of donations specifically dedicated to Vancouver’s homeless in the downtown core.
That single act of kindness has blossomed into one of the largest annual collections of warm clothing and blankets, helping homeless people and the working poor in every single community in the Lower Mainland.
Seventeen years later, thousands of REALTORS® from Whistler to Chilliwack have collected enough donations to help more than 166,000 people in need. Each year, more than 75 dedicated members actually pick-up and deliver all the donations, and well over 100 real estate offices in the Lower Mainland act as collection depots.
The annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drivenow collects an astonishing 5,000 plus bags of warm, winter items on behalf of dozens of local charities.


If you have any further questions or would like more
information on the event, please feel free to call.

Bathroom Renos: Before and After

Family bathroom reno
Bamboo, floating shelves and dry stack Carrera tiles create a calming space in this busy family bathroom

Two functional main-floor family bathrooms get makeovers that up their fabulous factor

Two friends Ingrid and Haley recently redid their tired, outdated bathrooms to splendid effect.

In each case the homeowners had undergone a large-scale reno on an older home and saved the bathroom renovation for last. 

Both women also wanted something beautiful and functional for their young, growing families.

Here's what they ended up with.

Industrial Design Meets Calming Space

Before and after: A bamboo shelf and vanity add a calming feel to an industrial redesign

Ingrid is a serious style maven who pores over design websites in her spare time and has a home and wardrobe to match. She is also a hands-on mom and has an effortless way of pulling things together. She loves modern, industrial design and all things calming.

Ingrid’s worked alongside interior designer Margot Jagger to create a contemporary, yet hardworking space.

Her favourite feature of the bathroom is a floating bamboo shelf. It is a bit unexpected and extends over the sink and toilet creating a sense of flow throughout the small bathroom.

Even though the bathroom serves as a main floor powder room for guests, Ingrid installed a full-sized shower to hose down her golden retriever and three kids after a day at the park without having to traipse upstairs.

An existing off-centre, square window located along the dry stack, Carrera tile shower wall was left as is, but a niche was added to mirror the diminutive opening. It echoes the window in a playful way and creates balance.

Love the caged light from Blue Owl that Ingrid selected for over the custom, bamboo wood vanity and square sink from Robinson Lighting. Instead of having the light hard wired, an electrical socket was installed in the ceiling. It infuses the space with an industrial element that mimics features in the nearby kitchen. It also enables Ingrid to change the light on a whim.

Laquered Cabinetry and Chandeliers

Before and after (inset): Treed wallpaper brings the outdoors in and a bright yellow vanity livens up the dark space

Haley is a dietitian and active mom of two girls. When it came to her main floor bathroom, Haley was inspired by a photograph of a path through the woods that she spied in a friend’s powder room while living in London, England. Her husband is an outdoor photographer and there was also an interest in pulling the outdoors in.

Interior designer Tracey Ford worked with Haley to create a fun, whimsical space by juxtaposing black and white wallpaper of barren trees with a canary-yellow, high gloss, floating vanity. “The comfort of the forest combined with the flash of vibrant colour makes you feel like you are on a retreat,” she said.

A set of glass pulls and a chandelier relocated from the original dining room provide added drama.

Haley removed a shower in the bathroom and added a window as a natural light source. She is still looking for a side table, chair or otherwise perfect piece of furniture to complete the space.
