East Gippsland Home and Lifestyle

HOME & LIFESTYLE 2019 | 21 Todd Murray took over ownership and management of the locally owned and op- erated Bairnsdale Plumbtec (26 Dalma- hoy Street, Bairnsdale) three and a half years ago and the business has been thriving ever since. Twelve months ago Todd also added a second store, 58 Church Street, Lakes Entrance (the old Lakes Plumbtec). The Plumbtec Group has since merged with Plumbing Plus, making them part of the sec- ond largest buying group in Australia. Due to this change the business is now trading under the company name of Todd Plumbing Supplies (formally traded as Bairnsdale and Lakes Entrance Plumbtec). The name may have changed, but you will still find all the same staff in both stores. With dedicated staff, including Todd’s wife, Deanne Murray, John Cooper, Aaron Cameron, Kevin Stevens, Daniel Roberts, Lau- rys Cabaybay, Mitch Toms and Lucky Whelan, the Todd Plumbing Supplies team strives to provide the best customer service along with first-class products to the East Gippsland community. “We’re a locally owned and operated company, aiming to provide the best service possible,” Todd said. “We specialise in irrigation, heating, air con- ditioning, bathroom, kitchen, civil and plumb- ing supplies. “We also have two extensive showrooms dis- playing all the leading brands at our Bairnsdale and Lakes Entrance Stores.” Check out the website www.toddps.com.au , to find suppliers and gain an insight into the business itself. Alternatively visit the stores and showrooms at Bairnsdale or Lakes Entrance. “Being locally owned and operated, Todd Plumbing Supplies is a big believer in support- ing the local community, sponsoring many local sporting clubs, community groups and events,” Todd said. Modern backdrop textured marble wallpaper on white background terrazzo. Terrazzo is the new homewares trend everyone is talking about. Following on the popularity of marble over the last few years, Terrazzo offers a more colourful al- ternative, and it’s everywhere! The speckledmosaic of marble scraps originated with Venetian craftsmen over 1000 years ago but it couldn’t look more cutting edge. When created with contemporary colours and placed within a modern scheme, Terrazzo brings interest and texture to countertops, floors and staircases. It also works well in functional homewares and accessories, such as Terrazzo lamp bases, hanging pots, wall clocks, bookends, fabrics andwallpapers. Terrazzo Trend alert:
