AHD Limestone

Like a Rock | Beautiful Limestone Interiors & Exteriors

When I think of Provence, beyond the lavender and the rosé, I can feel the cool, pale interiors with gentle Mediterranean breezes flowing through airy rooms. Limestone is a natural material in warm climates for flooring and counter tops and even walls and fireplace surrounds. The luminous, chalky rock seems to deflect heat. Limestone is complimentary to almost any other natural material you pair with it, particularly wood. Think in-laid flooring and rough-hewn beams. The South of France is sounding pretty appealing right now!

Collingwood Real Estate Market Update – May 2014

What a difference a month and several degrees make! With most signs of the seemingly endless winter gone, the real estate market in the Georgian Triangle has finally started to bloom across all property types and price categories. Despite the fact that inventory remains tight, more listings are coming onto the market and sales are taking place in greater numbers. The May MLS® Statistic Report released by the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® (“SGBAR”) for the Georgian Triangle marks the first time this year in which more properties have changed hands than in the same period the year previous. Despite mixed economic signals both domestically and south of the border, buyers appear to be exhibiting a degree of bullishness with respect to their willingness to move forward with property purchases in the Georgian Triangle. This would appear to be buoyed, at least in part, by the ongoing conducive lending conditions and relative stability and dependability of the property market in the area.

Between the Sheets | Beautiful Linen

Winter has had us in it’s icy grasp for so long, it seemed like maybe Summer had been eradicated – this plot sounds vaguely familiar doesn’t it? Now unleashed, summer has officially arrived. People seem to be jumping in with both feet before it disappears again. White denim, fedoras and linen are de rigueur on any self-respecting patio patron. Linen, woven from flax fibres, keeps us cool and fresh in the heat. It is a perfect textile for that South of France/Montauk/Hamptons slipcovered, effortlessly cool look. Crisp for the table and window coverings too. Most often seen in lighter hues  – neutrals, whites and grays – linen is a perfect warm weather staple especially when you’re escaping the heat of the sun for a well-deserved afternoon nap. We deserve this!

Toronto Real Estate Market Update – April 2014

The Toronto residential resale market continued a string of strong monthly performances in April, a trend that defines the spring market: low inventories, strong sales and rising average sale prices.  Mortgage interest rates remain king. Historically low with no likelihood of an increase for the remainder of this year. As this market update was being prepared Laurentian Bank was offering a three year rate of just under 2 per cent, the lowest mortgage rate ever offered in Canadian history.
