Warm Weather Brings Hope

weenen-general-springContributed by Kathy Flaxman —  When warm weather comes to Toronto, it comes with a bang.
All at once we have fragrant flowering shrubs like lilacs, full leafy trees and flowers in masses. And our homes always want to put on their brightest faces too!  Could this be the time for a colour shake up?

 
Shannon Soro, who works her interior design magic on many Weenen General Contracting Limited projects. points out that people are ready to  act.  “Lots of people will be up for painting,” she says. “They really noticed the things that needed touch ups and sprucing up while they were in their homes much more than usual.” And Shannon has suggestions. “I almost always do white walls and I love black accents and orange as an accent too.  Lately, I have been attracted to blues and bold yellows but mostly the walls of my interiors are very white.”

 
Seasonal Trends and Easy Perk Ups

 
“At this time of year, work on decks and outdoor areas can be popular,” Joe Rozman of Weenen General Contracting Limited notes.  “These create extra living space that is still private,” he adds.

 
“People can always liven things up with fresh flowers, new less expensive accessories that are trendy and new toss cushions.  Cleaning and eliminating clutter can make a big change to the feel of your home too,” Shannon points out.
In these challenging times, it’s important to keep spirits up! According to Shannon, people can give their home and themselves a lift with a change in colour. “Use white!” she says.  “White!  Add very bright primary colour accents to be clean and fresh.”
