A reflection of its people

I’m sure that you can relate to the saying, “Home is where the heart is…” But here’s one to think about, “a home is a reflection of its people“. My home is my sanctuary, my safe place. My happy place. I’m a sucker for spending time at home. Home is where I’m happiest. My home definitely is a reflection of my spirited family. From our small passage like kitchen, p.s. our home is older than us 🙂 and we are still doing renovations , to our neat and tidy, well after the kids go to bed and before they wake up in the morning it’s very neat and tidy, living areas in our home.

Our home is not picture perfect. We have some DIY projects that are still in the pipeline. Even some that have been started but not completed. But this is our home. This is us. This house that we call a home is a reflection of US.

 Today’s home is a reflection of its people, gone is the need to look like the Joneses.  Our homes are authentically us, stripped of pretence.  Product transparency is also a growing trend; we shop with a higher conscience focusing on wellness and sustainability, wanting to know the person or story behind our purchase.

This year the Pretoria HOMEMAKERS Expo  brings you the stories and the best products in home improvement.  The Expo is where you can come face-to-face with the craftspeople or knowledgeable experts who provide visitors with the best understanding of the product.

The show helps to expand dialogue between homeowners and suppliers. It offers unique ways for you to see, touch, feel and compare products and services.
