March 2006 | Issue 3

It’s been a great winter, but we’re still staying mostly indoors in the March edition of New Home Living, Calgary’s only monthly new home lifestyle magazine.

For our cover story, ‘Best Seats in the House’, the focus is on the bum. Or, rather, where we put our bums, as we take a tour of several local furniture stores to test-sit some of the latest styles in sofas and chairs. It’s a tough job, but well done by Natasha Evdokimoff.

The  regular line-up of New Home Living departments continues in this edition, including: Interiors, Exteriors, Expert Advice, Yard & Garden, Around Town, For Men, Designer’s Choice, A Brief History of …, and, of course, Show Homes. Within these departments, we’ve got articles on topics that run the gamut from bathroom trends to architectural controls to the Fish Creek flood.

Our monthly show home spotlight shines on four different homes from three of Calgary’s finest builders, as we visit Avi’s Springbank in Evergreen, Stepper’s Dalhousie and Belvedere in the Summit of Montreux, and Cardel’s Shefield, the  STARS lottery home, in Chaparral.

Our popular new home lifestyle feature profiles two new homeowners who were so impressed with their home builder they literally decided to work for them. Now that’s customer satisfaction!

Whether you’re decorating a new home, looking for neat ideas for your current home, or purchasing a new or pre-owned home, we hope you’ve found something you can use in New Home Living. Thanks for reading.
