Love It or List It Vancouver

Posted on March 20, 2013 by Jared

I’ll admit that I’m not the best at keeping a secret. When something amazing is happening, it’s really hard for me to keep quiet about it! (If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know what I mean!)

Drum roll please…

For the past couple of months, we’ve had the pleasure to work once again with celebrity interior designer Jillian Harris. (Last year, we worked with Jillian as she designed the beautiful PNE Prize Home). As the co-host of the new hit series Love It or List It Vancouver on the W Network, Jillian hand-picked one of our environmentally friendly wall surfaces for one of the episodes.

That’s right, we’re going to be on TV!

Tune in on Monday, April 1st at 10 PM on the W Network to watch Jillian as she designs a show-stopping renovation in sunny Tsawwassen for homeowners Jeff and Paige. Here’s the description of Season 1 Episode 13:

Jeff and Paige’s love for their beach community means living in what was once a too-small summer cottage. With a growing family Jeff turns to Jillian to create more room, while Paige asks Todd to find them a larger, functional home.

But, will Jeff and Paige love it or list it? (We don’t even know!) We’ll be watching with you to find out!

In the meantime, watch the sizzle reel for Love It or List It Vancouver:

Sweet Things!

We’ve got lots of sweet things happening at The Eco Floor Store this month. Some sweet like chocolate mouse cakes, others sweet like awards and big discounts. And all of it equality as satisfying! (OK, maybe the cakes are a little sweeter…)

We can’t think of anything that pairs more perfectly than chocolate cake and eco-friendly floors. Turns out the delicious Lemonade Gluten Free Bakery in Vancouver agrees with us.

We supplied and installed Marmoleum floors in the kitchen and VinylCork floors for the eating area. If you live in Vancouver, go treat yourself!

The Lemonade Gluten Free Bakery has quickly become one of Vancouver’s sweetest destinations. Located in the hip Cambie street neighbourhood, Lemonade Bakery offers its guests a diverse and decadent gluten free menu.

In addition to delicious goodies, the bakery also features two of our environmentally friendly floors: Marmoleum® Real and VinylCork.


In the kitchen (where all the gluten free magic happens!), we supplied and installed 430 sq.ft. of Marmoleum® Real flooring in “Mist Grey”. Marmoleum® floors are made with a 100% mix of pre-consumer recycled content. They are also SMaRT Certified and qualify for LEED® credits.

In the entrance and eating area, the owner chose VinylCork flooring in “English Barn”. Comfortable on the feet yet very durable, VinylCork floors are also very eco-friendly. The vinyl layer is made of post-consumer recycled content and the cork layer is sustainably harvested from a quickly regenerating natural resource.
