The team at whathouse.co.uk have been working hard over the past month to put together our new look magazine for August and it is now available here. We’ve added a range of new features and as you pass the contents and welcome page, you’ll find the first one - Showhome of the Month. In this feature, we will speak to interior designers about four of the rooms they’ve created in a showhome. We’ll consider the style they’ve gone for but also give details about where consumers can pick up some of the materials and furniture they’ve used.
In our first one, we speak to Kate Letteriello about the work she did on Bloor Homes’ Ravensbourne Gate showhome. Another set feature we’ve introduced is a property-related celebrity interview and this month our interviewee is Britain’s Dream Homes Rhodri Owen. We’ve implemented some new interactive features too including a reader poll on your favourite property-related TV presenter and galleries of two stunning properties we’ve featured.
With the Olympics mania dying down between the end of the games and the Paralympics kicking off, we’ve taken a look at the future of the Athlete’s Village. We’ve given our interiors page a colourful revamp in time for summer and added in a fantastic competition to win Wolves Football Club tickets into the mix.
With the What House? Awards less than three months away, we’ve continued reflecting back to last year’s winners and in this edition we take a look at the Best Exterior Design winners, and runners up, from 2011.
For the property hunters amongst you, we have our listings page for every area in the UK, not to mention a section on affordable homes, mortgages, and investment. We also have a section on retirement homes. With our Focus On features we look at what’s on offer in specific areas and this month’s areas are Essex, Cambridgeshire, Somerset and Devon.
