Indianapolis Monthly Home

From the publishers of Indianapolis Monthly

If you're the type to tackle a decorating, landscaping, or home-repair job on your own, you'll find plenty to like in this year's edition of Indianapolis Monthly Home. The issue has a decidedly DIY slant, including a rundown of local classes and workshops (ever wanted to learn how to reupholster a chair, cook salmon the right way, or install a pond? You're in luck!) and gardening advice from professional green thumbs. Even two of our feature stories include owners who are quite hands-on with their homes—one performs most of the maintenance in her fabulous European-inspired garden and one whose creative remixes of unwanted parts and pieces show up throughout his near-northside residence.

But even if you're not inclined to get your hands dirty, you'll find plenty to ooh and ahh over, such as brightly colored throw pillows (maybe the easiest way to freshen up a room ever), fixtures and finishes with lots of sparkle, cute bird houses, a truly unique vase, and a Williams Creek guest home that makes us want to pack our bags for an extended stay.

As always, you'll find details on hundreds of home-related professionals starting on page 88. Because even those who prefer solo projects sometimes need a helping hand.
