June 2007 | Issue 18

If there’s anything I’m an expert on, it’s laying around. Especially in the summer. Just ask my wife. That’s why our feature story on patio furniture in this edition was especially interesting for me. In fact, it might be what inspired me to go out and buy four new patio chairs and a new outdoor chaise. It certainly hasn’t been the weather.

Our interior focus this time around is on the chaise lounge in all its many variations. Hmm. Maybe I need one of those too!

Still inside the home, in our regular It’s About Choices segment, Kim Luu looks at what’s new in furniture fabrics—from European and Asian-influenced designs to (gasp!)  plaid.

Our builder spotlight shines on the present—NuVista Homes, hot off their seventh straight Customer Choice Award at this year’s home builder’s awards; while  our community profile looks to the future with a visit to the ‘green’ community of Echo Haven.

We’ve also got three spectacular show home tours on tap this edition, including Jayman MasterBuilt’s Endeavor model in the Cascades of Royal Oak; Pacesetter Homes’ Veracruz plan in Silverado; and Lifestyle Homes’ Edendale in WestPark.

Source Media Group, who publishes this magazine, is proud to be a major corporate sponsor of the Calgary Fire Department’s annual Smoke Detector Program, an effort attributed with saving no less than ten lives in Calgary to date. The campaign includes an annual elementary school smoke detector poster contest, and you can see some of the winning artwork right here.

Whether you’re looking for a new home, looking for new furniture for your new home, or looking for new fabric for your new furniture for your new home, remember, you saw it in New Home Living.
