These are the top homes published by Western Living in 2022—and it's your chance to vote for which ones wins WL Home of the Year!
And it’s back!
Our 6th Annual WL Home of the Year celebrates the top designs in 2022, published by Western Living over the past year. From boldly maximalist home in Calgary to a beach house saved from the bulldozer in Vancouver, to a lovely mountain-meets-lakeside family retreat in Smithers, B.C., each of these homes is gorgeous—and indicative of the wildly talented designers that celebrate the way we live in western Canada.
And now, it’s all on you to vote which one deserves the title of our 2022 WL Home of the Year.
Have a look through the top 15 finalists below—each links to their original story—and get ready to vote.
Once you’ve chosen your favourite home, scroll to the bottom to the poll, where you can vote. You can vote as many times as you’d like, and tell your friends to do the same (#WLHomeoftheYear)!
We’ll be narrowing it down to the top five on Wednesday, November 30, and crowning the victor—2022’s Western Living Home of the Year—on Wednesday, December 14.
Of course, every one of these homes that’s made it to our finalist list is a winner—and full of inspiring ideas.
