About Paradise, Communities, Construction Updates September 8, 2016

It’s been a busy summer for us! While you were (hopefully) spending some much-deserved time on the beach and enjoying the beautiful summer that we had, we were busy working away on our active projects.

Best Places For Apple Picking in the GTA

Uncategorized September 2, 2016

While we hate to see summer go, we can’t help but get excited to welcome fall into our lives with open arms. With the first cool breeze of autumn we’re reminded of all the wonderful sweaters we’ve been wanting to wear, all the pumpkin spice lattes we want to drink, and all the cozy soup we want to eat. Fall is the perfect time to get outside and explore – it’s not too hot, not too cold, and the leaves are changing colour, so every outdoor excursion becomes a great photo opportunity. Our favourite fall activity has to be apple picking – for the fun outdoors, but also for the tasty pies that follow. Here are some of the best places to pick your own apples in the GTA.

The process of getting a new home is quite thrilling. You’ve spent considerable time searching for the perfect place to live, and once you find it it’s hard to contain your excitement.

Design Trends August 9, 2016

Your spring was spent getting your yard into shape for summer. During the week you’d peruse the Instagram accounts of your favourite design and decor sites to gain inspiration for creating your own outdoor oasis.

The crowning feature of any backyard of those who love to entertain is the perfect patio set. Here are some we’re obsessed with to give you some inspiration! 

Designing Your Dream Home Office

Design Trends July 27, 2016

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.

Design Trends July 18, 2016

Ah, the gallery wall!
This home decor trend has really made a name for itself over the last few years, and for good reason. Gallery walls are the perfect excuse to put number of your favourite pieces of art together, rather than having to decide on one big piece for your wall. They’re a great way to show off your personality, and are essentially impossible to get wrong. Whether you choose a themed collection or a random one, if you’re looking to make a bold statement on a wall in your home we suggest trying this trend out. 

Paradise Gives Back: The Baruch/Weisz Outpatient Care Clinic

Giving Back July 11, 2016

We’ve mentioned before how much working with hospitals in the communities we build in is important to us, and North York General Hospital is one of those hospitals. Not only are we all North York natives, but the hospitals transition from a suburban hospital to a regional health centre able to cater to over 400,000 people a year has been truly staggering to watch. North York General has become one of the most in-demand and prestigious health centres in Canada. At Paradise Developments, we wanted to support a priority at the hospital that would benefit patients and the system and as a whole.

Stairways that Inspire

Every corner of your home is a design opportunity just waiting to happen. From an untouched room, to a blank wall, to a window sill, these spots can always have a little extra TLC put into them. One section of your home that shouldn’t be neglected is your stairway. Often it’s the centrepiece of your home, or one of the first things people see when they enter, so it’s important to make sure your stairs reflect your design perspective. From the railing you choose, to the steps themselves, to the decor around it,  your stairway is a great place to have fun with the decor and express your own personal style. Here are some super chic stairways we found (and love!) for inspiration.
