Dressed in Scottish attire (and complete with authentic Scottish accents) these two design boys bring big design tips to the West Coast Women’s Show in style! From great tips (paint large items like fireplaces in lighter colors to make them less of a focal point) to friendly threats (if you have dried flowers as decorations in your living room, you should get rid of them!) Colin & Justin are the perfect combination of great informative knowledge delivered in a high energy and entertaining fashion. We had a chance to catch up with them before the show, and they are just as entertaining in person as they are on stage!
Check out our 5 minute interview with Colin and Justin in the video below. These two were an absolute riot on stage, such fun! Their design tips are easy to follow and their fun approach makes the sometimes overwhelming challenge of interior design light and entertaining. See what these design gurus have to say about finding a happy design compromise with your partner, Canadian fashion sense and Star Wars!
