This is now my last issue as I turn my </p><p>sights to other adventures.Through 15 issues, I have delved into drywall and waxed on </p><p>about woodwork, often stepping over the thresholds into homes, stores and show rooms where no other decor magazine has gone.</p><p>Often, when introducing myself as editor of Home Makeover, at a store opening, home show or even to a random real estate agent or designer, I would invariably get the response, Oh, I love that magazine. I read it cover to cover.</p><p>Its that kind of fan reaction that has made the job so rewarding, as well as the fact that all our sources are local, so we are doing our part to promote the work of local designers, trades-people and retailers.</p><p>I have enjoyed working with our retail supporters to bring knowlege to our readers while bringing clients to their stores; with our contributors, who scoured backyards and back alleys to nd stories of interest; and our design team who consistenly went the extra distance to create a beautiful-looking publication that is a source of pride for everyone.</p><p>We started several new ventures in the past two years, including a new magazine (re-style), reno workshops, booth makeovers at the Vancouver Home Show and a prize every issue for new or renewing subscribers. As the magazine moves forward, there are even more initiatives in the works that will keep the pages engaging, contemporary and thought-provoking.</p><p>The new editor, Noa Glouberman, will be familiar to readers as the name behind the kitchen and bathroom renovation features, as well as numerous other articles ranging from green walls to paving stones. She brings to the table solid writing experience and a fresh view.</p><p>Im still oating around the BIV Media Group oces, but Ive taken o the HM hat as I build my other passion - a business as a life coach. I hope you enjoy the new names, the new look and the new content and may all your renos be a breeze.</p><p>Baila Lazarus, outgoing editor, </p><p>homemakeover@biv.com</p><p>Publisher: Doug Holt</p><p>Editor in chief: Baila Lazarus</p><p>Design director: Randy Pearsall </p><p>Copy editor: Renate Preuss</p><p>Contributers: Linda Chu, Noa Glouberman, Heather Kleim, Renu Singh, Grant Wing</p><p>Production manager: Don Schuetze</p><p>Advertising sales: Art Pouchet, Brett Stenner</p><p>Administrator: Katherine Butler</p><p>Marketing &amp; events co-ordinator: Paige Millar, Aly-Khan Virani</p><p>System administrator: Les Valan</p><p>Subscription manager: Veera Irani</p><p>Controller: Marlita Hodgens</p><p>Office manager: Dennis LeBlanc</p><p>President, BIV Media Group: Paul Harris</p><p>Home Makeover is published six times each year (February, April, June, August, October, December) by BIV Magazines, a division of BIV Media LP, 102 Fourth Avenue East, Vancouver, B.C.

She had done this little </p><p>copy of Vincent van Goghs Starry Night and I said, Thats </p><p>what we should use for our design concept. We wanted </p><p>to add some sparkle and interest to the kitchen, and the </p><p>painting reected that perfectly. </p><p>With van Goghs celestial swirls in mind, she and the </p><p>My House team, which included a second </p><p>designer Jerey Rebie, who is no longer </p><p>with the rm and builder Bruno Hoglund, </p><p>set out to make over the space, which Jones </p><p>described as poorly laid out and not very </p><p>functional.</p><p>Their rst order of business was to </p><p>remove a wall that separated the kitchen </p><p>from a small, adjacent sitting room. With more square </p><p>footage to work with, the team was able to add such fea-</p><p>tures as a walk-in pantry, coee bar and larger island to </p><p>the kitchen.</p><p>The old island was too small, Jones noted.

A </p><p>pull-out spice cabinet to the left of the gas </p><p>range and a pull-out knife rack to the right, </p><p>for example, create hidden places to tuck </p><p>everyday items neatly away.
