Losani Homes one of Canada’s best-managed companies

For more than 40 years, Losani Homes has been known for their recognizable style and unparalleled craftsmanship. Founded in 1976 by Giovanni Losani, along with eldest son Lino, Fred Losani joined his brother and father in 1985 following graduating from Brock University.

Losani carefully chooses locations that are close to parks, trails and wooded areas, and augments these natural settings with wide boulevards and pleasing streetscapes giving each community a spirit distinctly its own, while all standing the tests of time.

In addition to more than 100 home building awards that range from local markets to world-wide recognition, Losani Homes was also named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 11 straight years, a distinction conferred by the Queen’s School of Business, CIBC, The National Post and Deloitte. In the process, Losani Homes has gained platinum status in what is Canada’s leading business awards program, a feat no other homebuilder in Canada can claim. In addition, the company has received the coveted Consumer’s Choice Awards for service, value and quality for the Hamilton/Niagara regions each of the past five years, in addition to the award for Philanthropic Company of the Year.

McKENZIE

Losani Homes’ latest community offering serves up some of the best value in southern Ontario when it comes to new communities. With four two-storey contemporary townhome designs available to compliment the rich diversity offered across the single detached options, the McKenzie strikes a unique balance between offering industry-leading value without any compromises. Two-storey townhomes range in square footage from 1,454 to 1,728 and start at $397,900.

Many of which come in your choice of one of four timeless elevations starting at just $504,900.

VISTA RIDGE

Positioned on a former winery in Beamsville, Vista Ridge is a unique community that embodies all that Niagara has to offer, including rich soil and enchanting vistas. In addition, it has the envied location of being close to the Bruce Trail and the Niagara Escarpment. However, Vista Ridge’s popularity also has to do with its infrastructure. Built into the community are tennis courts, a splash pad and traditional park space.

Here, two-storey towns come in three distinct layouts, ranging in size from 1,454 to 1,708 square feet, and start at $429,900. Single-family detached homes are available on 36-foot and 40-foot lots, as well as custom lots, starting at $555,900. Models range in size from 1,348 to 3,198 square feet and are available in four elevations.

This Paris might not have the Eiffel Tower, but it has been billed as one of the most charming towns in Ontario. Steeped in cobblestone character, the Grand River measures the pulse of everyday life in Paris.

Two-storey semis are available in three models ranging in size from 1,481 to 1,855 square feet, with prices starting at $447,900. A total of 24 detached single-family designs are available with a choice of one of four elevations. Homes are positioned on 43-, 46- or 50-foot lots, and range in size from 1,360 to 3,500 square feet.

This neighbourhood offers inspired designs and lot choices that are built around a wonderful park, all within walking distance to shopping. Also close by is the Eco-trail Promenade, which offers direct access to the 10-kilometre East Mountain Trail Loop.

PRONTO: HOMES ON DEMAND

Losani Homes’ Pronto: Homes on Demand program allows homebuyers to get the house that they want, when they want it. Because the home was built before purchasing, significant savings are passed on to the homebuyer and quick closings are available.

Trend Spotting at Maison et Objet

Trend spotting at Maison et Objet

At the Maison et Objet 2018 show this past September, you couldn’t help but feel design all around! The yearning to discover what the trends in home decor and interior design for this year’s Fall-Winter seasons were going to be was palpable. The most special thing to look for was the upholstery fabrics. Not only do they cover all the essential furniture products of a house, but they can be transformed into something brighter and more creative.

Decorative pillows, drapes, bedding…the list is endless, but whether we like it or not, trends follow us everywhere and we can’t totally escape it. However, the fun part of it is that you can always mix things up and create your own trends or even your own styles.

To better understand this environment, here are the Five trends spotted at the best European tradeshow:

Geometric patterned fabrics

Just like people’s attitudes, geometric shapes can also determinate character traits. The ones you choose for the projects in your favourite spaces will tell everyone a lot about you. Give some character to your spaces while still making them feel cozy and homey.

Bright coloured fabrics

Every home needs a splash of colour. Not only to warm up the room and for it to feel lived in, but also to transmit a very light and upbeat atmosphere. With different colourful fabrics, you won’t want to leave the house or the office.

Tropical patterned elements

It is always nice to have some elements that are nature inspired in your home decor whether it is on pillows, throws, drapes, rugs or even furniture. A tropical themed fabric collection is always a good choice as it has nature at the same time that they remind us of spring and summer days.

Peculiar shaped upholstery

Everyone wants their favourite space to have an eye-catching element that will blow everyone away. Why can’t it be a small armchair or a big wall-to-wall sofa? The most important thing is that it has a unique design different from what you are used to seeing.

Fabrics on the wall

Traditional interior design can be modern and chic there is no denying that. However, thinking outside of the box is the way to go to customize your personal preferences just like mismatched dining chairs at a dining table or a rug on the wall.

Maison et Objet has come and gone this year, but its trends will still be among us until next year’s edition in Paris, Jan. 18 to 22, 2019.

Editor’s Choice: Brookfield Residential

Woodhaven in Aurora to open this spring

Brookfield Residential is excited to announce its plans to build a new master-planned community in Aurora. Woodhaven, located on Yonge Street just north of Bloomington Road, will feature a picturesque landscape of rolling hills and mature trees, creating a lush haven.

“Woodhaven is surrounded by green and the stunning natural landscape makes it all the more desirable,” said Marc Thibault, VP of sales and marketing for Brookfield Residential. “Homeowners will be impressed by the abundance of existing trees that have been preserved on the site so the feel of nature will be there from day one.”

Woodhaven will offer a priceless natural setting abounding that captures a lifestyle you have always aspired to, all while enjoying the comforts and conveniences of Aurora. With an amazing selection of shops, restaurants, schools, parks, conservation areas and the GO Transit station nearby, Woodhaven has all the benefits of urban living in a refined atmosphere. Commuters will appreciate Aurora’s close proximity to the city, with Toronto a mere 30 minutes away via Highways 404, 400 or by GO Transit.

Many of the homes in the first phase will back onto protected woodlots with an existing treeline providing an abundant natural surrounding and added privacy where desired. The community will have the benefit of quiet cul-de-sac living to enhance the tranquility of the surroundings. Woodhaven will feature a variety of upscale housing options for families in its first phase, including detached homes positioned on 30- to 50-foot homesites.

The homes will feature modern designed open spaces to maximize living space including gourmet kitchens, welcoming family rooms and luxurious ensuites. “We designed the plans with today’s homebuyers in mind ensuring open spaces with increased ceiling height and an abundance of windows and natural light flowing into the homes,” Thibault said.

“The homes are well appointed and we’ll continue to build on the principles that homeowners have come to expect from us – innovative designs, exceptional quality and superb customer service.”

Woodhaven is scheduled to open this spring. Registrants from the website will be provided with priority information and special offers/updates leading up to the opening and an invitation to the VIP Preview Opening.

Brookfield has built more than 25,000 homes in Ontario for over 60 years. Brookfield’s ongoing commitment to quality and customer service has earned the company several highly coveted industry recognitions including the J.D. Power and Associates Award for Highest in Customer Satisfaction and Ontario Builder of the Year from the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) and Tarion.

Brookfield currently has active communities in Alliston (Treetops), Aurora (The Arbors and Timberlane), Paris (Pinehurst), and Tottenham (Willow Glen).
