Yahoo! It’s that time of year again! Time to dust off the cowboy hat and polish up the boots for Stampede. And, for those of you who are so inclined, time to add a special Western twist to your interior decorating as we provide some quick and easy tips from a couple of local experts. Of course, speaking of Stampede, we also take our annual tour of Homes by Avi’s Rotary Dream Home in a special two-page preview.

In our regular It’s About Choices segment, New Home Living associate editor Shelley Williamson lays it all on the line, or, rather, on the floor, as she takes us on a quest for tile. If you’re thinking of getting tile in your new home, or adding tile to the home you already own, you absolutely have to read this first.

This month’s builder profile features Carstairs-based Gold Seal Homes,  including an interview with head-honcho and volunteer firefighter Murray Pound. For our community profile we take the short drive out to The Lake at Heritage Pointe, about ten minutes south of town, named Calgary’s best new community at the 2006 home builder awards.

Not to be overshadowed by an award-winning community, we’ve also gone out and visited show homes from three award-winning builders; Albi Homes, Ashton Homes, and Heartland Homes.

And, since it’s finally summer, we find out what’s hot in the world of backyard barbecues and then cool off with a refreshing dip into outdoor water features.

Hunting for a new home? Fishing for furniture? Digging for design tips? It’s all right here in Calgary’s only new home lifestyle magazine – New Home Living.

Coming next month in our July edition: wine rooms and swimming pools.
