Home is a practical, inspiring guide for the home and garden that enables people to make their home prettier and increase the value – inside and outside. The magazine makes life easier for people wanting to buy a home, build, or make alterations, or even try their hand at gardening, cooking and decorating. Home doesn't just demonstrate what looks good – it explains what adds value, and why. The magazine offers readers affordable and accessible choices, help with do-it-yourself projects, and provide advice for renovations. It’s for men and women with ordinary lives, ordinary careers and ordinary homes; people who want to add value to their home with a limited budget.

hello

Over the past year or so, you may have noticed that Home is no longer just a magazine. We’ve had a digital footprint for some time now – from our very first mobi page to the many newsletters we send out. Not to mention our social media presence on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. For years, the magazine has also been available in PDF format on apps such as Zinio and Magzter. Now we’re branching out even further. At the end of last year, we created the Home online shop (tuishomeshop.co.za) where you can buy chalk paint (other beautiful goodies will be added soon) and there’s also the Welcome Home design service that will make short work of any décor dilemma – and save you money too (see page 75). We hosted our…

Our Annie Sloan tour to Lorgues, France last October was a roaring success. We eventually had to organise a larger bus and extra accommodation for everyone. Johané, our food editor, joined the tour group, hence the inspiration for the French dishes on page 114. Here are some photos of the group of 23 readers whose creativity bowled even Annie over! Antibes (right), Cannes, St Tropez... Apart from master classes in paint techniques with Annie Sloan, there was plenty of eating, shopping and sightseeing on the agenda too.…

WINNING LETTER A festive success! Tanya Rabie of Stellenbosch writes I bought your magazine for the Christmas holidays, which we spend at our house in Struisbaai. We usually have cold gammon, beef and my traditional German meat salad (a family recipe) for Christmas lunch. This year, my husband asked for a hot meal. I don’t like turkey, so I looked for a nice recipe for gammon – my husband is a hunter, so we always have game in our freezer. Your recipes in the December issue of Home were perfect. I made the gammon, the venison fillet à la Wellington and Yolanda’s wild…

A concrete plan Concrete finishes are still very much on trend – not only for countertops in kitchens and bathrooms, and on floors and walls, but for furniture and décor accessories too. “It’s the attractive raw aesthetic of cement that appeals to homeowners,” says Johan Coetzee, the owner of World of Decorative Concrete (WODC) who made this sleek concrete-top table for the stoep at event guru Aleit Swanepoel’s Somerset West home (see his garden on page 92). “Concrete works well with glass, metals, linen and even paper,” explains Aleit, “which makes it the ideal medium when you want to create a contrasting look by combining hard and soft pieces.” In keeping with this theme, Aleit used a variety of cement items such as statuettes, busts, underplates and even cement-look candles on this inviting table.…
