Home October 2019

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 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.

I saved all the magazines I could afford on my return, Home being one of my absolute favourites!
