In January, the 12th Annual Spring Katy Home & Garden Show will be welcoming HGTV’s newest celebrities starring on the hit series “Flip or Flip Fort Worth.” The largest home show in West Houston, scheduled January 27-28, 2018 at the Merrell Center in Katy, will showcase the latest in renovation, home design, and feature DIY workshops for endless creative inspiration.

Let the kids’ imagination run wild at the NEW Let’s Playhouse! featuring unique playhouses any younger aspiring homeowner would like to call their own, one of which will be auctioned off to benefit a local charity. The 3rd Annual People’s Choice Awards for Outstanding Outdoor Living Retreat also returns, and attendees are invited to cast their vote for this honored award.
When it comes to renovating, Texans know how to do it big. Andy and Ashley Williams, stars of the newest edition of the hit HGTV show “Flip or Flop,” bring their savvy style to the 12 Annual Spring Katy Home & Garden Show from Ft. Worth, where they work to make over more than just houses. Having served in the Marines and Army, these two veterans, turned real estate investors, are dedicated to their country and community. “By renovating homes in old neighborhoods, we are striving to transform our hometown and put life back neglected neighborhoods.,” said Andy.
Meet Andy and Ashley on the FRESH IDEAS Stage throughout the weekend as they share their passion for design. “We are very excited to come to the Spring Katy Home & Garden Show and share how, with creativity and hard work, anyone can transform their house and add their personal touch to their home.” Adding dimension to designs through pattern mixing and playing with textures is a calling card for Ashley’s flip visions. Polka dots, stripes and faux finishes are especially fun to play with, she says.
“I love textures because they add dimension to your space,” Ashley said. “Faux finishes are a great way to save money, and in some cases the materials may hold up better than the authentic version.”
