Holiday Decorating for your Condo Home

The bells are jingling, the snow is falling, the gifts are wrapped and the smell of cloves and cinnamon is in the air. It’s time to get your condo into the holiday spirit too! The key to creating big holiday spirit in your condo is to streamline your décor inside your home.  Our Holiday Decorating Pinterest board is a great place to start. We’ve pinned tons of creative, easy and elegant ideas to get your condo ready for the season.   The first thing is to remember the Rules & Regulations for your community.  A good rule of thumb is to keep your decorations inside your home, as anything exterior is typically considered common area and the rules governing decorations can vary by community.

1. Hang it up: Walls, windows, mirrors and shelves are all space-saving and decorative options. Buy a wreath or do-it-yourself with pinecones, ribbons, rosemary and holly – check out our Pinterest board for a few DIY tutorials. Hang mini-lights along windowsills or even wind them around your deck or railing, if your corporation permits. Use a colourful string or ribbon to hang ornaments from windows or shelves.

For wreaths and other door decorations, putting holes in the entrance doors compromises fire ratings. But some buildings allow over-the-door-hooks. Of course, hanging your wreath on the inside of your door adds to your home’s holiday decorations.

IMAGE IDEA: Picture of a wreath hanging on a door with the tagline:  “For wreaths and other door decorations, putting holes in the entrance doors compromises fire ratings.  But some buildings allow over-the-door-hooks.  Of course, hanging your wreath on the inside of your door adds to your home’s holiday decorations.” 

2. Enhance existing furniture: Dress up your dining room chairs for the holidays by tying painted pinecones to wide ribbons and draping them over the back of your chairs. Try filling an existing large vase or bowl with elegant ornaments – silver and gold are our favourites!

3. A little goes a long way: The smallest details really do create grand elegance. In your windowsill, place tall white candles on a silver tray for a sophisticated flair. Or try placing two faux dwarf evergreens, wrapped in burlap, to add a bit of festivity to your table. A tree-top is another great option for your space and there are plenty of non-traditional tree alternatives too: like natural wood trees, wall decals, cardboard cut-outs and paper trees – you just need to get a little creative!

Remember that live Christmas trees are not allowed in many condominiums. But with the selection of beautiful artificial trees now available, you can still enjoy your Christmas traditions and avoid a potential fire risk.

For even more ideas, be sure to check out our holiday Pinterest board here.

Groundbreaking Ceremony at 101 Erskine.

 

 

Discreetly tucked away from the action at Yonge and Eglington, preparations for construction at 101 Erskine have begun.  This milestone was kicked off with a Groundbreaking Ceremony, attended by representatives from both Tridel and Beaux Properties, partners in this sophisticated midtown Toronto community.

Representatives from Beaux Properties and Tridel attend the 101 Erskine Groundbreaking Event.

Located along the Yonge subway line and prime bus routes, and ranked 4th in Toronto Life Magazines 2013 edition of “Best Places to Live in The City”, Yonge and Eglinton is a vibrant and exciting neighbourhood.  With fantastic shopping – think Restoration Hardware, Lululemon, Sporting Life and a myriad of boutique stores – excellent dining and entertainment, Yonge and Eglinton is rich in the offerings that make a neighbourhood an attractive place to call home.

 

The 101 Erskine community has been very successful and is currently over 80% sold.  Starting from $287,000, there is still an excellent selection of suites available, including The Lanes Collection, with one and two story garden suites and townhomes, nestled on ground level along Erskine Avenue and a private laneway with access to Broadway Avenue. The professionally appointed amenity spaces include a sophisticated party room, rooftop terrace with Swimming Pool, well equipped Fitness Studio, Yoga Room, and Billiards Room.

 

Occupancy at 101 Erskine is currently scheduled for Summer 2017.   A formal review of the occupancy schedule will occur once concrete has been poured for the ground level.

Visit the 101 Erskine Presentation Centre at 2611 Yonge Street or telephone Marisa DiCecca at 416.480.0700 to find how this community could be the perfect home, and neighbourhood, for you. We are open Monday to Thursday, 11 am – 7 pm, closed Fridays and open from 12 noon – 6 pm on weekends and holidays.

Homeowner Orientations have begun at One Old Mill.

 

At Tridel, we believe that the Homeowner Orientation appointment, or HOO, is not just a tour of your new condominium; it’s a tour of your new home and community.   At One Old Mill, Homeowner Orientation tours have recently begun and the new homeowners are getting an exciting introduction to their new suites, recreational spaces and impressive amenity spaces.

“I love this community,” comments Annette McDade, Tridel Sales Representative at One Old Mill.   “You’re in the midst of great restaurants, cafes and boutiques, surrounded by parks, with Etienne Brule Park and the Humber River practically in your backyard.  The Jane subway station is just steps away.”

“The building is elegant and contemporary, and reflects the refined character of the surrounding neighbourhood.  The suites are spacious and the homeowners I’ve spoken to are thrilled with the luxurious community amenities they have toured,” notes Annette.  Eric Rivera of Customer Care comments, “The movie theatre looks amazing and I love the lobby’s high ceilings and elegant finishes.”  He adds that “the electrical rough-ins in the underground parking that allows homeowners to install receptacles for hybrid cars is an innovative feature.”

 

The electrical and plumbing rough-in and drywall are currently being installed on the 11th floor and exterior landscaping of the community is underway.   First occupancies are expected in late November.

“These are spacious condominium homes that offer all the conveniences of the condo lifestyle, situated in one of Toronto’s most charming neighbourhoods,” notes Annette.

Visit the Presentation Centre at 2487 Bloor Street West or call 416.645.7022 to discover the One Old Mill community for yourself.
