The phrase ‘Pretty in pink’ may immediately transport you to the 80’s, sitting on some awful chesterfield, and watching the classic film about angsty teens. What the chesterfields of that era may have lacked, the 21st century couches and chairs definitely compensate for. Whether it’s beautiful leathers, or plush velvets the choices in luxe seating are endless and make choosing a new couch next to impossible. To help us choose our favourite current style, we like to see what our favourite design accounts on Instagram have to offer. For almost a year now one trend keeps popping up on our screens. So much so, that we can no longer ignore it. What trend is that, you ask? Soft, pink sofas and chairs! Take a look at our inspirational guide.
2017 has been a memorable year for the Paradise Developments team. From renovations at our new office, to all our new communities, it’s been an exciting year. Most recently, our High Point community in Brampton had a huge release, as did our much-anticipated Whitby Meadows – the largest choice of new homes ever introduced in one community. Upper Mount Pleasant in Brampton, as well as Impressions in Kleinburg have been progressing as well. Here’s a little update to see where we’re at with these communities as 2017 wraps up.
The best thing about our Whitby Meadows community is that you have a choice. A choice in builder, a choice in home, and a choice in lifestyle. If you choose a Paradise Home there are even more great things to choose from. From finishes to design, you get to decide how you want your dream home to be built. One of the biggest choices you’ll make is whether you want a classic or a contemporary home. Both are stunning in their own right, but which speaks to your aesthetic, lifestyle, and perspective more? We’ll help explain the difference to make your decision a little easier.
When you think of Whitby, you think of small town charm. While there is no lack of charm in this lovely community, that doesn’t mean Whitby is sleepy. If anything, it’s the opposite! The population has been on the rise, with a 5.2% change reported between 2011 and 2016. Being a 30 minute drive from Toronto definitely has its benefits. On one hand you’re just a short ride away from a bustling city centre, but on the other, you’re just far enough away to enjoy the peace, quiet, and sense of neighbourhood that only a close knit community like Whitby can provide. It’s this community that makes Whitby such a great place to live. We spoke to some of Whitby’s most beloved small businesses and asked them what it is that they <3 about Whitby. Here’s what they had to say:
Nothing holds your hand, drags you to the shower and says “it’s time to roll out of bed and conquer today” like an encouraging mug of hot coffee – or iced coffee, if you’re into that. Luckily for us, Brampton feels the same way about caffeinated beverages, and proof of that lies in the fact that our city has so many cafe options to choose from! Here are ten places that will give you that zing you’re looking for!
In terms of creating a work life balance, we all set out with the best intentions. You plan to separate the two, leaving your work at the office and saving the home for family life. But as we all know too well, this isn’t always practical. Sometimes you may have some extra work that followed you home, or perhaps you’re blessed with work from home days! In these situations, the last thing you want to do is set up a temporary and uncomfortable work space in your dining room. You need an actual space where you can sit down, roll up your sleeves, and get that work out of the way. You need a home office! Here’s some inspiration to help you on your way to designing your very own dream home office.
The excitement is building! There’s so much to love for the GTA and Whitby is one of those places. This gem shouldn’t be overlooked, it’s got a lot going for it. From green space to community events, it’s a great place to live and raise a family. This is why we’re thrilled to be a part of Whitby Meadows, a community that’s going to bring new life to the area near Coronation Road and Rossland Road.
But first, let us indulge you in some of the details that make Whitby the charming town you’ll want to call home. This is Whitby by the numbers:
School’s out! Well, just for a week. Starting March 9th, kids across the province will enjoy a week off from classes. March Break is a great time for families to enjoy the end of the season together. While the week is always fun, it can sometimes be difficult to come up with things to do and places to go with the kids while they’re off. Thankfully, there are lots of things going on in and around Whitby to keep them occupied and entertained. Here are some ideas to enjoy together as a family.
The wait is almost over! The Beechwood new home opening is here! Tomorrow, Saturday March 3rd, we’ll be hosting our Beechwood sales event. Here you’ll be able to discover the home you’ve been dreaming of for so long. Not only will you be able to sit down with one of our expert sales agents, but you’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of designs and layouts. Other than your excitement, there are some other things you should bring to Brampton’s best new home value event. Here are some things to pack when you come by:
Creating new neighbourhoods in Brampton is truly an honour for us – a badge of honour we wear with pride. We know how amazing the city is, and how amazing it’s going to be. We’ve looked at Brampton by the Numbers to get a feel for where the city stands, and it seems as though the Flower City has long been on the rise, with the population doubling between 2011 and 2016. We wrote about What to Look Forward to in Brampton. You’ll be pleased to know that 2018 is looking bright for the city, with a downtown makeover, new transit project, and more community events coming! To add to that excitement, our Beechwood community is coming to Central Brampton in March. In fact, the new release is happening March 3rd at 10am sharp! We’re beyond thrilled for this new home opening and want to share all the details with you. Here’s everything you need to know.
The excitement for our upcoming Beechwood community is reaching new heights. The beautiful neighbourhood, situated at the heart of Brampton, will be opening in March. Our selection of Urban and Terrace Townhomes are perfect for those who like to be in the centre of it all. The thing about a Paradise Developments townhome is that it feels no different from any other home. Spacious and stylish, you’ll be able to make this home look and feel like paradise.

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re very excited for our Beechwood New Home Opening, coming to Central Brampton this March.
