For years, viewers have been drawn in by John Gidding on HGTV’s Curb
Appeal show where he gives homes an exterior makeover. Now John is
coming to Utah as part of the Deseret News Fall Home Show and will be
conducting a special workshop.
John stops into Studio 5 to share his thoughts.
John Gidding, notable architect, designer and host of HGTV’s Curb Appeal:
The Block, will help Utahans fall in love with their homes when he appears at
the Deseret News Fall Home Show on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday,
October 9. Between two eventful days of Gidding’s seminars, Home Show
attendees will learn a variety of design tips and trends, as well as insider
information about his shows and upcoming projects.
With a diverse background in urban and graphic design, architecture, and
landscaping, Gidding has established a place for himself among the most
renowned in the design world. After earning a master’s degree in architecture
from Harvard University, Gidding worked for landscaping and architecture
firms, which, with this wealth of experience, helped him launch John Gidding
Design Inc. in New York City and Atlanta. Soon after opening his second
office, Gidding expanded his passion and talent for design by joining the
HGTV team as the current designer and host of Curb Appeal: The Block-
appearing on HGTV every Saturday evening.
“Since we tackle a variety of projects on Curb Appeal, viewers are able to see
ideas they can implement at any level of the makeover process, ” said
Gidding. “We showcase projects as tiny as restacking stones around a
planting bed, to larger projects where we clad a third of a house in
engineered stone. This way, people are not only inspired by a multitude of
designs, but they can also fit these projects into their budgets.”
Attendees can catch Gidding’s design seminars and open discussions on the
IKEA Design Stage presented by XFinity on Saturday, October 8 at 3 p.m. and
7 p.m. and Sunday, October 9 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The Deseret News Fall Home Show will be at the South Towne Expo Center,
beginning Friday, October 7 and continuing throughout the weekend until
Sunday, October 9.
