Happy Canada Day! We enjoyed some incredible celebrations yesterday at Town Centre Park, Castle Park, and Rocky Point Park! In case you could not make it to 20 incredible minutes of fireworks accompanied by a very tasteful soundtrack, here’s a 90 second snippet I was able to grab. The magnificence of fireworks exploding almost directly overhead is not something that can be captured on film.
Here are a few things to do this weekend to celebrate our beautiful country! Visit the Coquitlam Farmer's Market!There will be lots of fresh vegetables and fruit, amazing prepared foods, baked goods and food trucks! Come hungry and check out Cheese Street Grill, Truly Authentic Taste of Malaysia and Rocky Point Ice Cream! We’re excited to be welcoming The Land of Deborah to market as our musician this week. Deborah is an award-winning musician whose “feel good folk-pop” style is a crowd favourite. Celebrate Canada this weekend at our kids’ craft table! Join us to make a patriotic wind sock full of red, white, and maple leafs! Check out our list of vendors attending the market this Sunday here! Visit Golden Spike Days! Welcome to summer! Sure, it’s been around for a week or so, but it doesn’t really feel official until the July sun, Golden Spike Days and festive fireworks come to town. Different festivities for each day - check it out in person! Or visit their Facebook Page for some fun snippets.

When selling a home, first impressions matter. That’s why staging is key for creating an emotional connection with buyers. Signs of a happy life (like the scent of freshly baked cookies or a book beside the sofa) can instantly boost a prospective buyer’s mood and maximize your home’s selling potential. Here are a few important tips about the process.
There are some amazing new home decor trends that you might want to take a look at. This season, add a splash of nature into your home to make it become more lively. Check out this seasons 5 popular decorating trends to help give you inspiration to style your home.
1. Emerald Green
Nature-inspired hues are very popular in home decor this season. Make your room rich with a beautiful emerald green. For a dramatic look, layer the shades of green. This is a great color to match with different prints and patterns. Emerald green is a mix of warm, moody and energetic. It's perfect to evoke a feeling of luxury. It's eye-catching and will be the focus in any room.
2. Brass accessories and accents
A cute trend this winter is to add brass geometric shapes around your home. Brass and gold add warmth to any room. Some people have added a modern minimalist twist to their Christmas decorating and hung some brass vintage bells and gold geometric ornamental shapes to their Christmas tree.
Opt for lavender or lilac instead of millennial pink. These soft colors are being used to make accent that are deeper more of a statement. Purple is a rare occurring color in nature. It's a signature color that speaks of royalty and the color of youth and femininity.
4. Shades of grey
Nothing surpasses the exotic winter morning grey palette proven to be this year's "neutral" color of choice. You can easily add different shades of grey to any room of your house. For Christmas decorating ideas, you can pull out some silvered branches, or add a frosty feel to your window pane. Get some smoldering grey bed linen and towels, and include other touches of grey to your interiors.
Knitted accessories are making a bold statement in the design industry. Huge chunky cable-knits are replacing demure weaves. Decorate your home with a thick knit rug, knit pillow, or a knitted basket and stool. The cool thing about it is that if you can knit, this would make a fun DIY project. Layering the knits is also a neat thing to try as well. Put a knit pouf or ottoman on your knit rug. Or hang a knit blanket over the back of a couch. The knit design is making it's way into the modern design. It's one way to keep your home cozy and warm all winter long.
