Our annual Livingetc House Tours event offers the exclusive opportunity to see inside gorgeous houses that have previously been featured in the magazine. As well as seeing the homes in glorious 3D reality, participants often also get the chance to meet the owners or designers involved in the projects.
For the event we host between one to three days a year, with each tour organised in convenient, easily navigable areas, so all the houses (six or more!) can be visited in one day between the hours of 10am and 4pm.
We also design the routes to allow for shopping (with nearby design stores often offering one–off Livingetc discounts), lunch and refreshments, so it always makes a brilliant day out. Staggered start points mean that visitors flow through the houses without overcrowding, and fact sheets are provided with information on fittings, from paint colours to key items of furniture.
Now in their fifth year, the tours are increasingly popular with visitors returning regularly even from far-flung countries like Australia, Sweden and Germany. The next Livingetc House Tours is planned for Friday 8 June 2018, in South West London. Watch this space for more information!
“I love the Livingetc House Tours because it’s like walking through the pages of the magazine. It’s great seeing those gorgeous houses close up and I get loads of ideas from seeing someone else’s inspirational design. In fact I even bought my kitchen after seeing the “kitchen of my dreams” on the Tours! I think Livingetc is more than just a decorating magazine. It’s about a lifestyle and an attitude and for that one day a year, I feel I am part of it.”
