When designing an office space in your condo there are lots of decisions to be made. If your condo unit comes with a den then more likely than not your office will go in there. If you do not have a den then finding a small corner in your bedroom or living area will do the trick! I've noticed a lot of condo residents making use of the front hallway if there is enough space to set up shop there. Along with finding a spot for you to create your masterpieces or do your daily grind, another question would ...

Free trip to Italy, need I say more
June 15, 2016
Ok we'll admit it, we've been feeling lazy these days. The weather is nice and we want to enjoy it. However, there is one thing that has caught our attention and that is a free trip to Italy. Think beautiful architecture, old-world charm and food oh all that glorious food! Now you heard the word free and you are all like "I'm in there like swimwear". Well, it's not exactly free but it could be better than free, depending on how you look at it. You could be a proud homeowner or have another great property in your portfolio if ...
Of course condo living has outdoor space
May 9, 2016
Mother's Day was yesterday and we hope that all the loving, caring, hardworking moms out there had a wonderful day! Motherhood comes with many challenges and many rewards, and at the end of the day moms just want their kids to be happy and healthy. And let's face it, we want those little rug rats to get outside and blow off some energy on a daily basis. A misconception of condo living is that there is no outdoor space, when in actuality that is not true at all. Not only is there outdoor space but it's outdoor space which ...
If anyone deserves a day it's you Earth
April 22, 2016
We often take this miraculous planet for granted, and hardly look up and around to witness all of its splendour and beauty. So if anyone or anything deserves a day to show our love and gratitude it is our Mother Earth! One thing is clear, and that is we have to be more mindful of the everyday little things we do that can harm our planet. Remembering to always recycle, don't litter (does anyone still do that, if so shame), turn off water when washing the dishes etc... Condo residents have realized in the past few years that most of ...
Come At Me Snow
April 4, 2016
So what if it's snowing in April? It's not anything we Canadians aren't used to. We know Old Man Winter has a bit of a warped sense of humour and likes to give us one last salute when we think that Spring is here. It's ok with us because we like snow. It's the one thing you can throw at your significant other, friends and kids that won't hurt (except for ice balls don't throw them, a black eye from middle school taught me that lesson). Snow is quite beautiful the way it lightly falls to the ground. It's ...
Space saving furniture that multi tasks
March 23, 2016
Chatter about the full moon and lunar eclipse tonight has reminded us that whether your condo is big or small, the best way to utilize space is to have furniture that moonlights as other pieces of furniture. Take for example the everyday stool. This stool can be used as something to stand on when you're reaching up for something, but did you know it could also be used as a last minute seat or fill in for a side table holding your magazines in glorious sight? And if Ottomans are your thing, be sure to get one with an internal compartment that ...
Happy International Women's Day!
March 8, 2016
Women, whether you know it or not, or get the recognition or not, one thing is clear and that is you rule the world! You have the power to shape generations and you usually carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. You are capable, you are strong, and you are filled with compassion and empathy. I think of my Grandmothers, Mom and Daughters as I write this, and many of the other inspiring, amazing women out there. Happy International Women's Day to all of you!
