Décor & Gardening

That’s a wrap!

That’s a wrap!

The 2017 East Coast Radio House & Garden Show was bigger and better than ever – and the numbers prove it.

They came, they saw, they housed, they gardened! This year’s ECR House & Garden Show exceeded all expectations – and economic indicators, enjoying a whopping 7.5% year-on-year growth. Now in its 37th year, the exhibition achieved this remarkable feat despite a show stopping power failure and another that delayed trading.

This year’s show saw more than 480 exhibitors (an increase of 180 on 2016) filling up the entire Durban Exhibition Centre, alongside a larger Homegrown Design Fair, the new dedicated Foodie Fair, and 10 days of the KZN Travel & Adventure Show (which ran for only a weekend last year) sponsored by Tourism KZN.

Visitors were wowed by features like The Apartment – a small-space living display nestled in an up-cycled 12metre shipping container; the H+G Makers Space – offering creative activities for all ages; The Golden Delight Chefs Theatre – a host of celebrity chefs cooked up a storm, the KAPOW Designer Café presented by Dulux – where KZN’s top interior designers and decorators collaborated to create a mix of trend-focused room settings; and the Uber Haus – a fully automated home comprising a lounge, dining room and open-plan kitchen.

One very lucky visitor won a R100 000 bathroom makeover from Classic Luxury Tiles & Bathrooms.

Aside from generating entertainment and happiness for thousands of visitors, the event is estimated to have generated over R100-million in business to the province.

The ECR House & Garden Show will return on 30 June – 8 July 2018.

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…

50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
