Empire Communities, one of Canada’s largest home builders, is launching a new design series in partnership with design expert Andrew Pike. The eight-episode Love Design, Live Empire video series filmed on location in five new model homes at the Riverland community in Breslau, Ont., will inspire homeowners to live beautifully in a space that reflects their style.

Starring Andrew Pike, founder and principal designer at Andrew Pike Interiors Inc. and nationally recognized media personality, these bite-sized videos offer essential tips and advice for every room of the home. By subscribing to the video series, viewers will unlock new content each week including style guides, design tips and budget planning templates to design their dream home.

“We know how stressful and overwhelming decorating one room can be – let alone an entire newly built home – so partnering with Andrew Pike to create beautiful inspiration for homeowners and guide them through the design process of their dream home is something we are very excited about,” says Sue MacKay, vice-president of marketing at Empire Communities. “By working with Andrew to create five very different, yet viable design styles, we’ve made sure that there’s something for everyone.”

With five model homes at Empire Riverland as his canvas, Pike transformed each space into a magazine-worthy home. Through the series, viewers can now bring his expertise into their homes.

“After years of working with Empire, I feel confident I understand what their homeowners are looking for, and hope to inspire with both functional and sophisticated design,” Pike says. “My partnership with Empire has resulted in some truly amazing projects, and I believe this one is one of our best yet.”
