We knew that Ana Santos & Sara Branco were the right Realtors to partner with to sell a property under an estate sale. We could just not fathom how professional, informative and incredibly helpful they were. The process was messy and stressful but I knew 100% that they would get us to the finish line. Without their knowledge of the market, and their availability 24/7 we would have been un-able to make it happen. They held our hands and assisted with things that were not even real estate driven but supported us every which way. There are very few that can measure up to their ability to navigate today’s real estate market. Best of all they have great personalities, quick witted and intelligent. If you are buying or selling a home do yourselves a favour and hire this incredible Realtor you will not be disappointed. Ana & Sara, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts without you it would not have been possible. Forever grateful.

TESTIMONIAL

I can’t speak highly enough of Nutan as our real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and hard work ethic are very much appreciated and respected. Nutan was the person who, in my opinion, made our dream come true in moving back to Etobicoke. The moment I met Nutan, I could tell she was not only a remarkable real estate agent but also an incredible person. She goes above and beyond for her clients and was extremely open and transparent through the whole process. Nutan is so committed to her clients and we cannot thank her enough for the care and guidance she provided. Thanks again. - Adrienne and Dave


RECIPE

Easy BBQ PULLED

MUSHROOMS

These easy and sublime pulled mushrooms become the perfect vehicle for your favourite barbecue sauce. The meaty vegetable, worth keeping in your grocery cart,makes just the right mouth-watering addition to a sandwich or taco. They can even be cooked in the oven.

INGREDIENTS • 6 large portobella mushrooms or 1 lb (500 g) king oyster mushrooms • 1 tsp (5 mL) vegetable oil • 2 cups (500 mL) sliced onions • 1/4 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper • 1/2 cup (125 mL) favourite BBQ sauce

DIRECTIONS STEP ONE Preheat grill to 425°F (220°C). Remove the stems of the portobellas and set aside. Remove the gills from the mushroom caps and place mushroom caps, bottom side up, on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cook for 20 minutes. STEP TWO Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in onions, salt and pepper. Cook for 8 minutes stirring. Meanwhile, use your hands or two forks to “pull” the mushroom stems apart. Remove mushrooms from the oven, and once cool enough to handle shred the mushrooms using your hands or two forks. STEP THREE Stir shredded mushroom caps and stems into the onions and barbecue sauce. Cook, stirring over medium-low heat for five minutes. Serve as a sandwich, in lettuce wraps or use in tacos. ◆ newscanada.com

MOOD WITH COLOUR

By Designer Shelly Cerrelli | Photography by JF Fabrics

Colour is one of my favourite design tools and in my professional opinion, it doesn’t get the credit that’s due. Colour has the power to elicit a range of emotions, affect your lifestyle and impact your health – a big commitment, all things considered. Here are some important things to think about.

16

CHOOSING A COLOUR SCHEME When choosing colours, stick to the rule of three: the dominant, secondary colour and accent colour. Any more will create confusion and visual clutter. So, just three colours sounds simple enough, right? Wrong! With thousands of choices, where do you even start? Choose your inspiration and

COMBINING COLOUR IN THE RIGHT PROPORTIONS RESULTS IN A WELL-BALANCED, AESTHETICALLY PLEASING ROOM, SAYS DESIGNER SHELLY CERRELLI


let that guide your colour palette. If you’re a naturalist, you may be drawn to nautically inspired blues, greys and creams, or organic hues inspired by earth, leaves and florals. Alternatively, borrow a colour palette from something that appeals to you, like a piece of art, a fabric swatch or a rug.

COLOUR APPLICATION Combining colour in the right proportions results in a well-balanced, aesthetically pleasing room. Don’t forget about the walls, ceiling, casings and trim, floor coverings, furniture, window coverings, art and accessories. Each of these individual elements contributes to the “full picture,” which should be cohesive and harmonious. When working with colour, try the 60-30-10 ratio. The dominant colour occupies the greatest proportion of the room’s visual area – per our ratio, around 60 per cent. This may include walls and floor coverings. The secondary colour represents around 30 per cent of the room, landing on mid-sized elements such as a sofa, armchairs and a feature wall. Last but not least, the accent colour is usually a bolder choice that “pops” in the space, used on elements such as artwork, accessories and window treatments. The idea here is to draw the eye and create smaller focal points within the room.

COLOUR WITHOUT COMMITMENT

Shelly Cerrelli is the owner and Principal Designer of House of Cerrelli, a luxury home staging and interior design firm in the Toronto GTA and Ottaawa area. They are experts in creating environments that buyers can see themselves living in. Their services include interior design for luxury homes, residential and commercial staging. @ houseofcerrelli www.houseofcerrelli.com

Colour is a wonderful thing, but it can create anxiety for some. This has less to do with the colour, but is more about the fear of colour commitment. If you’re not sold on the “colour of the year” or you change your space with the seasons, consider opting for a natural dominant colour that “goes” with everything. The idea here is to add colour in places where it’s easy and inexpensive to replace as trends change. A piece of vibrant artwork, an area rug, or some pillows and throws are a great way to add colour without incurring a huge commitment or cost. Colour has many effects on our interiors, used to set a mood, highlight focal points, group related elements and bring context and connections throughout the space. Inwardly, colour should evoke the emotion and inspire you. Take your time and bring the right colour into your world, in the right ways! THN
