There’s no busier time than the holiday season. Not only are things wrapping up at work, but you’re also trying to plan your own holiday events, as well as attend as many others as you can! It’s a great time of year to touch base with your family, friends, co-workers, and community. Thankfully there’s always lots going on in the month of December to keep you (and those you’re inviting) busy and entertained. Our communities in Brampton and Whitby are bustling any time of year, but their calendars are particularly full this December. Take a look through at everything you should be adding to your own calendar this month!
It seems like only yesterday the first tree in the neighbourhood turned bright orange, but with the temperatures steadily getting chillier and the white stuff having made an appearance already, it’s time we face facts – fall is ending. For many, fall is their favourite season, even trumping their love for the summer months. With pumpkin spiced lattes, beautiful autumnal colours, and crisp weather being plentiful, fall makes for the perfect backdrop for any photo and a great excuse to spend some time outdoors. We perused Instagram to see how fall in Brampton, Whitby, and Kleinburg looked through your eyes. Here are some of the highlights from Heber Down and Lynde Shores conservation area in Whitby, Heart Lake and Claireville conservation area in Brampton, and Kleinburg.
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.
While colder temperatures mark the arrival of November, we can’t ignore the fact that with these temperatures come cozy nights, festive feelings, and a packed to the brim social calendar. While the holidays are still a ways away, the holiday spirit starts early. If you look at the event calendars for different communities across Ontario for the month of November you’ll see there’s a huge variety of fun things you and your family can do this month. We took a look at what’s coming up in Brampton and Whitby and highlighted some events you won’t want to miss. Check them out and be sure to add them to your calendar!
If 2017 was the year of Hygge, the question remains: what design trend will reign supreme in 2018? Trend forecasters are already making their predictions for the coming year’s hottest style, and it’s possible you’ve never heard of it! That’s okay, neither had we. Does Wabi-sabi ring a bell? If not, we did some research to better understand this Japanese style of decor. The Wabi-sabi design philosophy is centred on the beauty of the imperfect. Think organic materials, flawed woods, hand-crafted, wrinkled linen, and ceramics. The trend is reminiscent of minimalism, but less pristine. In fact, it’s even a little messy. Here’s some inspiration to help you understand and embody the beautiful mess that is Wabi-sabi in your own home.
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.
