Along with celebrating its 10th anniversary with a new-and-improved look beginning with the magazine’s July 2013 issue, Real Living updated its editorial content to include more shopping recommendations, product features, and inspirational homes.

Real Makeover
One of the most popular sections in the magazine. Every month, a guest designer renovates a reader’s room from floor to ceiling, to give it a new look to match his/her lifestyle and needs.

This ultimate buyers’ guide not only features product images, but descriptions, price points, store locations, and designer tips on how to use the selected items in your home.

Decor Ideas
Featuring different home products—furniture, lighting, accessories—this section showcases the latest design trends at value-for-money prices. The hodgepodge section lists decorating applications, new home products, recommended books, and secret suppliers to the design trade.

Organize It
This section highlights ways to organize clutter and store one’s belongings using various store-bought products and items found around the home—a must-read section if you live in a small space!

Real Homes

The heart of the magazine, the Real Homes section features inspirational and aspirational homes, as well as a Get the Look product page at the end article to help readers achieve the style of the highlighted home.

Real Living Notebook
A monthly workbook filled with mini home projects and selected home improvement materials. The section includes a calendar of upcoming events, sales, and workshops; and useful tips and advice from designers, architects, and contractors in special sections like Renovator’s Diary and Materials Sourcebook.

Real Estate Listing
All details of a featured condo unit or development are highlighted—from decorative tips shown in the development’s model unit, and approximate prices and location, to nearby establishments like malls, hospitals, and schools. The section is intended for readers considering a new home purchase, to help them create a shortlist of their desired developments, and also how to get housing loans and handle real estate requirements.

My 10 Favorite Things at Home
Each month, a celebrity, designer, or media personality shines a spotlight on the 10 favorite things in his/her home, including furnishings, appliances, and accessories.
