The Homeowner’s Last Hurrah

The value of the condo you bought two years ago is racing George Bush’s approval ratings to the bottom. Hurricanes are churning in the Atlantic, and buyers are scattering like pit bulls at a Vick family barbecue. Looks like you’ll be staying put for a while. But don’t panic. There’s a way to add property value in these times: remodel! Now’s as good a time as ever to keep up with the Joneses as the Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show takes over the Miami Beach Convention Center this Labor Day weekend.

Brought to you by veteran show producers Larry Perl and Steve Plotkin, the show fills 230,000 square feet of the convention center with an international showcase of interior design, furniture, and accessories -- as well as a variety of home improvements for indoors and out. Celebrity Wanda Colón, of HGTV’s 24 Hour Design, will offer show-goers simple tips for giving their homes the “star treatment” during complimentary seminars Sunday and Monday. So if you’re looking to ditch that recessed white sink (soooo last century) or the linoleum floor, head to Miami Beach and learn how to rejuvenate your dwelling. The show is open today from 6:00 to 10:30 p.m., and the renovating fun won’t stop until Tuesday night at 10:30. For more information, call 305-667-9299 or visit
Aug. 31-Sept. 4
