Kelly Deck has been advocating for West Coast design since 2002, when she 
 opened an interior decor boutique on Vancouver's Main Street. Since then, 
 Kelly has immersed herself in the lifestyle and community that makes West 
 Coast design unique.

 wide reach in Canada-through her Globe and Mail column, The West Coast Way; 
 her HGTV series, Take It Outside; and her various media appearances. Outside 
of work, Kelly is a passionate cook, who enjoys nothing so much as a 
 spontaneous collection of friends, food, and decent wine.
