To say that 2020 was a tough year is like saying that in the winter, Canada is a bit cold. The thing we might remember most from a design point of view is simply keeping the coffee table clear.
Let's take a light-hearted look at some of the more questionable design choices of days past, to take a break from the seriousness of the modern day. Knowing what goes around, we're going to do it carefully, just in case the shag carpet starts trending in 2021!
Mid-Century Modern is fantastic in the mid-century. For the 1950s, there's just one little question we have. What about the pink one? Sure, a makeover was necessary for the drab khaki years, but the influx of pink tiles and sinks in later decades sparked many renovation counterattacks. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the colour pink, to be clear, but it could have pushed some limits to use it in these amounts.
Shag's carpet may have kept our feet warm, but it's a bit of an eyesore of the decade from a ...

Home is where the heart is, and there is no time like the month of February to take the opportunity to tell someone how important they are.
Perhaps this is also a time to reflect, and ask ourselves if it is time to search for that forever home, one that will be a warm welcome everyday and a safe haven for the ones we love.
I could go on with all kinds of examples like – Love Your Neighbour as Yourself , even go all business on you with accolades about how much we love doing business with you , or how much we love your referrals and more – but, the point is we do love helping people sell and buy real estate. And those people say we are good it!
In fact, if it’s OK with you, let me focus just a bit on the REFERRAL request.
Please know that my team and I are eager to help anyone you know wanting to make a move so much so that we are willing to make an offer that they will LOVE.

While this year you and your special someone may not be travelling for Valentine's Day, that doesn't mean that you can't start planning a future romantic getaway. In order to find a romantic getaway, some people believe they need to travel to Paris, the Bahamas, or another international destination, but that's not the case. You don't have to cross oceans to discover a unique and romantic place to explore, one of the greatest things about living in the world's second-largest country.
Here are five (when it is safe to do so!) of the most romantic cities in Canada for you to visit.
Tofino, British Columbia
It's no secret that British Columbia is stunning, but Tofino in particular is a great place to take a romantic getaway for you and your loved one. In the winter, the small village on the west coast of Vancouver Island offers milder temperatures, so if you're usually stuck in cities full of snow, Tofino might be your place.
You can take a sunset stroll to Pettinger Poin ...

Over the past 11 months, the way we live, work, and celebrate has been anything but ordinary. Your typical date night might not be possible this year with an unusual Valentine's Day around the corner. That's why we're discussing some thoughts on how to make this a Valentine's Day to remember. Whether you're on your own, or spending time on February 14 with a significant other, friend or family members, here are five festive ways to celebrate this year at home.
Create a themed cocktail
It's a great excuse to get creative and invent a signature cocktail, to love or hate Valentine's Day. Try blending pink lemonade with sparkling water and slices of pink grapefruit for a kid-friendly option. Take it to the next level and, with a few candles, sparkly lights or red and pink balloons, create a Valentine's Day feel at home. Focus your decor on a bar cart or side table where, before enjoying your drinks, you can show your cocktail creations and capture that perfect Instagram post.

Finding the right real estate agent to represent you can be challenging. There are many agents to choose from and almost every homeowner you meet will have a recommendation. It may take a bit of time, but interviewing and evaluating agents is worth every minute. Buying or selling a home is no small task, so you want to make sure you get the right person in your corner. Here are 10 essential things to look for in a real estate agent.
1. An active listener
You want to ensure that when you speak, your agent listens to you and takes your wants and needs into full consideration. Your agent will represent you in what is sure to be one of your life's biggest purchases or sales, so it's crucial to make sure they understand your priorities. Look for an agent who remembers your list of wishes, contacts you when they see something that suits your needs, and who does not monopolise your discussions. Typically, good agents are good salespeople, but make sure they're not trying to se ...
