Just as winter has descended upon the Goulburn Valley, the release of the latest edition of Our Home magazine is timely, offering readers the perfect excuse to stay indoors and catch up with some of the hottest trends in home and lifestyle.
Packed with information and ideas, the fresh, contemporary guide is the second instalment for editor Jessica Ball, who coincidentally has just bought her first home and is looking forward to putting advice from the magazine into practice.
Those who love DIY home improvement can take tips from the experts about how to hang artwork, change the vibe of a space with paint and navigate the many options if you’re considering replacing carpets.
Hear from the ultimate DIY poster-girl, former Tatura resident Jess Eva, who gives an insight into her frantic, stressful but ultimately profitable experience on reality television series The Block.
Continuing the renovation theme, Kyvalley go-getters Lisa and Stephen Booth share their first attempt at house-flipping renovation and reselling for profit — after building and renovating three homes of their own.
A local real estate agent breaks down the new rental laws for tenants and landlords, including those relating to keeping pets.
Ms Ball said this was timely considering the magazine had advice from Mooroopna vet, Dr Anna Richards, about pet care, as well as giving potential dog owners the lowdown on some of the breeds that were most popular with local families.
As usual Our Home takes you inside some amazing homes including Lena and Steven Tricarico’s stylish architectural build that was about a decade in the planning, and at the other end of the spectrum, a quirky man cave filled with a treasure trove of collectibles.
For those who love braving the elements, there’s a guide on where to stay and what to do near Porepunkah and step-by-step directions to preparation and planting of trees for a vibrant autumn foliage display.
Issue 30 of Our Home magazine is available for free in tomorrow’s Shepparton News.
