InHabit 2020 – Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo

It’s that time of the year again BigCityFamily!

My most favourite Design Expo is just around the corner in Jozi – and with my new exciting renovation project on the horizon, am I just over-the-moon thrilled this event is just in time to help me choose and select the BEST home makeover options for my new space!

This year’s theme at the Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo – InHabit 2020 – is all around “owning our own space.”

InHabit is about improving the way people live in their homes and how they connect with everything around them. This includes environmental sustainability, story sharing, supporting local businesses and being better informed about product origins.

While we get more and more connected – the importance of having our own space to withdraw to, or entertain in or just simply to enjoy life is becoming ever more important. The return to individuality, a style and home space that resonates with our souls and having a home that reflects who we are is key to creating a BEAUTIFUL BigCityLife, and creating BEAUTIFUL spaces is what we at BigCityLife are all about.

Get your ticket now, and join us at this fabulous, creative event at the Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo at the Ticketpro Dome from 27 February to 01 March 2020.
