Grand Designs Live


Words: Alison Fyfe-Turck

The upcoming Grand Designs Live event is taking place from 29-31 May 2015, at the Dome, Johannesburg. The event has, over its five-year history, gained the reputation of being the most exceptional and magnificent home and garden show in South Africa. Showcasing many different areas, top brands, designers, expert tips as well as innovative features, Grand Designs Live has developed into an all-encompassing experience where visitors can enjoy the extensive delights on offer.

This year, the impressive Interiors section boasts a beautiful Tree House, brought to you by Belgotex, while clever use of space will be demonstrated by two gorgeous room sets, which will be decorated by top interior decorators.

With the theme of up-cycling, Grand Designs Live has once again included a DIY Build theatre brought to you by Black+Decker, created from two containers which will host talented experts demonstrating the latest in DIY.

The Garden Theatre will be a retreat from the bustling isles - beautiful trees, garden benches, and the sound of trickling water will make this feature a highlight of the show, not to mention the impressive list of experts that will give you all the latest gardening trends and advice.

If that's not enough Grand Designs Live is proud to announce the Chef's Theatre, brought to you by Easylife Kitchens where much loved celebrity foodies will be sampling, demonstrating and showcasing the perfect meal for you to replicate in your kitchens.

There is no doubt that Grand Designs Live Home & Garden show will re-energise your passion for up-cycling your house into a home, so make sure you get to Grand Designs Live 2015.
