Winter in the garden

Think there’s nothing to do in the garden in winter? Think again. Winter is the perfect time to set the scene for a spring burst of colour, scent and flavour!

It’s all about preparation

Pruning, weeding and composting – winter is a great time to prune straggly trees and bushes into shape, clean up the garden and dig in some well-rotted compost to boost your soil’s fertility and improve drainage.

Egg and Spoon Race

Who can resist a good old-fashioned egg and spoon race? You can use the traditional hard-boiled eggs which are less messy for young children, or similar sized chocolate eggs as well. Why not colour and decorate your hard-boiled eggs for an additional family activity. Just grab some wooden spoons and you are ready to go!

Create Easter Crafts

Furniture worth Investing in.

So, you’ve built your dream home and now you need to furnish it. Of course, it goes without saying that it’s important your home interiors are designed to suit your lifestyle and your personality. It’s where you spend the majority of your time, after all. However, furnishing and decorating your home can take a lot of time, effort, and money. So, it’s really worth pacing filling it with high-quality, timeless pieces that will last, as spending more money on fewer items now will pay off later.

CHOOSING THE PERFECT OUTDOOR FIRE PIT FOR YOU.

Spring has finally sprung, which means it’s a great time to start prepping your outdoor space for the season ahead. And nothing adds cosiness and light to a backyard setting quite like your very own fire pit!

Designing a family friendly lounge room

Jacinta Evans, Senior Interior Designer, Metricon.

The lounge room is often referred to as the heart of the family home – regularly having a duel life as a living and a work zone.

It can often be a challenge when designing a lounge room to find a cohesive balance between functionality and form, that works for a family now and into the future. When choosing a house plan it is always a great idea to look around various display homes, which can give you a sense of a space and provide you with some great ideas.

Designing a family friendly kitchen

Tamara Hosken, Manager of the Spectra Showroom, Carlisle Homes

Gone are the days where the kitchen was just for preparing and cooking, with guests stayed tucked away in the living areas, not setting foot in the ‘work zone’. Today’s kitchen really has become the new living room, the nucleus of the home, a place where the family gathers for meals and friends get together over coffee.
