 | July 12, 2012

On Friday, July 13, The Fair at the PNE will open the doors to its 78th annual PNE Prize Home for six preview days ahead of the Fair. The home’s interior has been designed by former ABC’s Bachelorette, turned celebrity designer, Jillian Harris.

This is a unique opportunity for a sneak peek at the Harris-designed home that brings both comfort and design to the forefront to capture the perfect balance of mountain style for the home that will eventually be situated in Sun Peaks, B.C.

The 2012 PNE Prize Home features a ski-in-ski-out sports room accessible straight from the slopes, a cozy living room with floor to ceiling windows and fireplace, and a contemporary fully equipped kitchen. With big exposed wood beams and posts and natural cork flooring, the 3,000 square foot Prize Home has a mountainous feel.
