          • I’d love to get some ideas to refresh my tired looking dining room and also perhaps some environmentally friendly options for my Victorian house

            Emily Kennedy on
          • How to use less plastic, recycle and re use but still have a clean uncluttered finish, minimise my waste footprint without cutting down on quality. Easy eco friendly swaps!

            Norm on
          • I have a whole 1950’s bungalow to remodel, I want to open up the back to the garden and shuffle around the bathroom, let light in for my houseplants, and my tenders and well, basically I want to convert as much home into garden or plant space as I can, but accept I probably do need to keep a toilet and bathroom ha ha!

            Angela on
          • I’d love to win tickets because I have lots of questions to ask the experts. I’ve recently moved and have a beautiful garden and I would like it to stay that way

            Marlene Fox on
          • As a millennial, owning a property is almost a pipe dream at this point – but why not dream big?! And in the meantime I’d love some inspiration to continue stuffing my rented flat!
