Atlanta homeowners have a soft spot for John Gidding, the charismatic star of HGTV’s “Curb Appeal: The Block“. From his good looks to his eye for design to his charming personality, there is a lot to like about Gidding. After an appearance at the Fall Atlanta Home Show at Cobb Galleria Centre last year, Gidding stayed to sign autographs and take photos with a long line of fans who were anxious to meet him, and he frequently updates his Facebook page with photos and commentary about his current projects and travels. If you’re a fan of Gidding or want to learn more about increasing curb appeal, you won’t want to miss the September 2012 issue of Atlanta Home Improvement magazine, which features him on our cover! Gidding is returning to the Atlanta Home Show stage again this fall to offer more curb appeal tips and behind-the-scenes secrets from “Curb Appeal: The Block”, speaking at noon and 2 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21. We’ll have plenty of copies of our September issue at the home show, or you can pick up a copy for Gidding to sign at one of our many distribution locations before attending.
