Recently, there was a popular advert that had the tag line “Home is where the heart is”, and this rang so true for
most of us. You may have had the worst day ever, but once you walk into your home, somehow a peace surrounds
you. You and I both know that getting a home to look and feel as exquisite as we want it to get quite tricky – at
least I know that my home is still a work in progress. If my house could look like my Pinterest page, it would be on
this magazine cover for sure. Read on and know why you need a mood board.
For some reason, every time I walk into a home décor store, the items that steal my fancy are either too expensive or
too large for my space. I have a file filled with magazine tear outs and an incredible amount of Pinterest boards just
waiting for the right space, or better still, a “bigger pocket”. So, in the meantime, I comfort myself with nice but
affordable solutions, temporary ones that will still make my home look elegant.
We are fast running up the biggest homes show in East & Central Africa from 12 – 15 October. Turn the pages so get
a preview of what went down the last expo in April and get to know what to expect in this edition that’s themed #AffordableLiving.
You can afford to live comfortably and the Kenya Homes Expo has put together an innovative crop of products and services to suit your pockets. We can’t afford to wait for our dream homes. Life is too
short to live in semi-decent spaces until we can buy our homes. The space you are in now is your home, so get to
work and work on it with love. Our homes reflect who we are, and I know I don’t want anyone getting the wrong idea
about me from the way my home looks.
This is where HomesKenya Magazine comes in, we are all about blending the beautiful and useful with aspiration
and inspiration. We’re here to give you ideas, make you dream and give you practical insights to make your dreams
come true. We search the country and the world at large to track down unique, pioneering ideas just for you.
