EDITORS’ NOTES

d

oes 2013 mean looking for a new place to rent?

Here we are, already moving into mid-January. Perhaps some of your New Year’s resolutions may have already been forgotten, but if finding a new place is one of them, we hope you’ll find Renters Guide to be your best source of information. As the GTA Renters Guide celebrates its 23rd anniversary of publishing this year, each month we have a dedicated theme. January’s special focus is on Finding the Perfect Apartment. Look for great tips and advice from the experts to help guide you through this process. One tip I can offer is to be sure to get a feel for each company and the staff who you’ll be dealing with if you’re renting a space that’s run by a property management company. You should be comfortable and courteous asking questions and in turn you should expect to be treated with consideration and respect. Think twice about any property management company that doesn’t willingly provide any information you respectfully request. Putting the customer first and offering the best quality rental space for your money is a property management company’s ultimate goal. Once you find the perfect space, don’t hesitate in going for it and making it your own. I hope this resolution will be one of the easier ones you achieve this year. Let us know how your search for a new home goes. We’d love to hear from you.

Susan Legge EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, homeTRADER susan.legge@wall2wallmedia.com Follow me on Twitter at Twitter.com/SusanLegge

w

hat’s your motivation? Do you need more space - or less of it? A new lifestyle? A new job? A change in your family or relationship status necessitating a change? Then embrace the opportunity, go out and find that perfect new apartment. Sometimes, even though life has changed and a new apartment is necessary, moving can feel too overwhelming or inconvenient to take on the challenge and make the effort. While there isn’t an honest person alive that will tell you moving is easy or effortless, you can minimize the impact, stress and headaches by planning it out carefully. The first step is deciding what you want. Get a few points down on paper, such as: location, size, necessary amenities and budget. Be realistic and know the difference between your ideal and the market reality. Start looking. Look in advance so you get a feel for what the market has to offer. If you like something put your name on the wait list. Get your finances in order and your references in check. Start streamlining your possessions. If you’re moving with children you’ll have to get their stuff in order too. If you start getting your move in order well before you actually give your notice and sign your lease there will be much less to do once the 60-day countdown is on. With Renters Guide in hand you’ll find the perfect place. Our magazine and website, homeTRADER.ca, offer the best selection of available apartments as well as informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

Fenside, Don Mills

Scenic and sensational by Jane Herman

O

ne of the most convenient locations in Toronto, the area around Don Valley Parkway and York Mills Road is punctuated with parkland, creeks, ravines and winding streets that follow the natural landscape of this scenic neighbourhood. Imagine enjoying the best of all worlds: living just five minutes away from the DVP and the 401 and then retreating to your highrise apartment with a spectacular view of the Don Valley or living in a spacious townhouse in the beautiful ravine setting. This neighbourhood has many attributes including excellent schools, superb recreational facilities, extensive walking trails in beautiful parkland convenient shopping.

Having Fun The Lynedock Greenbelt is a series of parks that begins just north of York Mills Road, and runs south through the Valley Woods Road/Brookbanks Drive/ Wallingford Road area, where many apartments are clustered. Here you’ll find numerous access points to well-equipped playgrounds and scenic walking trails along Lynedock Creek that you can enjoy in every season. The Broadlands Community Centre on Castlegrove Boulevard has great tennis courts with a high caliber summer program run by the O’Connor Hills Tennis Club. It also features an outdoor pool, skating at an outdoor rink, shuffleboard, indoor fitness and other recreational programs for seniors and preschoolers, in addition to lots of beautiful greenspace and a children’s playground. Cassandra Park on Cassandra Boulevard also has neighbourhood tennis courts and children’s playground. And the local branch of the Toronto Public Library is conveniently located on Brookbanks Drive just south of York Mills.

Shopping There are two convenient shopping plazas serving the neighbourhood. Donwoods Plaza at Underhill Drive and

Broadlands is anchored by a grocery and also contains a bank, pharmacy, bakery and fitness centre. There’s also an additional grocery on York Mills midway between the DVP and Victoria Park. In this plaza you’ll also find banks, services and several restaurants.

Living in the Area One of the nicest features of the area is that there are a number of spacious townhouses to choose from, giving an alternative to mid- and low-rise. These offer the privacy and the comfort of living in a home, and the affordability and all the other advantages of the rental lifestyle. Townhouses often have three to four bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate a family. With multiple levels including basements, they have individual access and are often located in beautiful park-like settings. You’ll find many townhouses on Valleywoods Road, as well as some on Cassandra Boulevard. You can also choose from a number of highrise buildings, mostly located on Brookbanks Drive and some right on York Mills Road. Fenside is great community in which to put down your roots.

Rental housing fraud on the rise:

Beware by Ted WhiTehead

T

he Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO) is warning all tenants and landlords to be aware of an increasing number of apartment-fraud schemes. Rental scams vary but here are three of the more common scenarios:

36G

ExamplE 1: A scammer poses as a landlord on websites such as Craigslist or Kijiji and says they are out of the country and require a deposit on the rental apartment. Once the money is paid, usually through a money transfer, the new tenant discovers there isn’t actually a rental home available, and their money is lost. ExamplE 2: A scammer has somehow obtained access to a property or place. They pose as a landlord/property manager and show the victim the property. They then request an immediate down payment to secure the property and inform the victim they can move in at a later date. On the move-in date, the victim arrives only to discover it wasn’t actually an available rental home and there have been other victims as well. ExamplE 3: A scammer poses as a tenant and responds to Internet advertisements for rental apartments. The suspect contacts the landlord by email only. The “tenant” advises they are currently out of the province, but they will send a pay-cheque or bank draft as a deposit to secure the rental. The cheque will be more than the agreedupon amount, and the “tenant” will direct the landlord to send the excess money to a third party. After depositing the cheque, the victim will be notified by their bank that the cheque they deposited was worthless and the landlord will be responsible to the bank for the money.


Fraud prevention tips for tenants Is thE prIcE too good to bE truE? Check rental rates in the same area. Often fraudsters will try to entice their victims with unbelievably low prices to elicit multiple victims. arE thEy just communIcatIng wIth you vIa EmaIl? Fraudsters will not want to meet their victims in person to avoid being recognized and investigated by police. According to the Ministry of Consumer Services, complaints have been filed against businesses using the email addresses homematchrentals@live.ca and ontimerentals@live.ca arE thEy askIng for cash only or a cash sEcurIty dEposIt? Never pay a rent deposit by cash. Cash is untraceable and can be used immediately. arE thEy askIng for monEy to bE wIrEd? Once money is wired, it is extremely difficult to cancel the transaction. Also, money transfers are difficult to trace. Never send payment electronically to an individual you have not met. havE you sEEn thE placE and walkEd around wIth thE propErty managEr or ownEr? Never rent an apartment home if you have not visited the property and met someone on-site, unless it is with a well known and respected owner/management company. arE thEy thE landlord or propErty managEr? Only the landlord and property manager have the authority to rent out a place (there are exceptions to this rule, however, it is rare). ask thE nEIghbours about thE landownEr and hIstory of thE propErty. Neighbours are a great source of information regarding the owner and property. They can often confirm who the owner or property manager is. look for cErtIfIEd rEntal buIldIngs Look for buildings in the Certified Rental Buildings Program in Ontario. These buildings are monitored by FRPO to meet professional standards and are independently audited to meet rigorous standards. You will not be exposed to fraud in a CRB building. Find out more at www.crbprogram.org.

vErIfy paymEnts If you are considering renting to someone who sends advance payment, ensure that their payment is good with your bank. ExcEss paymEnts Never wire or transfer excess funds to anyone. cautIon durIng studEnt rEntal sEason Fraud becomes more prevalent near the end of a term at university or college when students are attempting to sublet their apartments. Be extra cautious at this time. tEnant scrEEnIng Use proper applicant screening practices and follow up on all references. Make sure that the tenant application form has been completed in its entirety. This information is compiled from advice provided by the Ontario Provincial Police, Waterloo Regional Police, Vancouver Police Department, Halifax Regional Police and the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services. To report suspected fraud, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1.888.495.8501 or info@antifraudcentre.ca

Fraud prevention tips for landlords: do thEy only communIcatE vIa EmaIl? Police suggest being very cautious when dealing with someone you only have contact with via the Internet.

quicktips

start the new year by freeing yourself by Hellen Buttigieg

There is so much buildup aT The end of The

year that it can almost feel like a race to the finish line. Then January 1st arrives, the social calendar calms down and the cocooning begins as you prepare to ride out the rest of the winter. Before you jump right back to everything you were doing before the holidays, take some time to look around and decide what needs to change. Not that you have to go making grand resolutions for the new year – unless that’s your thing – but look at it as an opportunity to free yourself of things that weren’t working for you. Try new methods that may improve your life in little, noticeable ways. Get clear on the year ahead If setting New Year’s resolutions is not your thing, there’s another way of defining what you’d like your life to look like – create a vision board. Get some magazines, glue and a poster board and start cutting and pasting images that you feel drawn to or that represent something you’d like to be or have in your life. If you would like to learn more about the power of these dream boards, and have a look at some of the ones I’ve created personally, check out my blog post, Creating a Dream Board (WeOrganizeU.com) 42G

End procrastination by knowing your payoff Ever wonder how to motivate yourself to tackle that daunting task you’ve been putting off? Rather than dwelling on the chore itself, turn your attention to how you will benefit once the job is done. If you can come up with two or three compelling ways your life will be better as a result of completing what you’ve been procrastinating on, you will find the inspiration to take action. Make your ‘someday’ a reality How many times have you wistfully said, “Someday, I’d like to…” It’s interesting how we often procrastinate on doing the things we most want to do. We continue to put it off because something more pressing always seems to come up. But life is short, and habitually putting off doing those meaningful things that bring us joy can literally suck the life right out of us. One thing that I personally find very effective is to catch myself when I say I’d like to do something, and immediately pull out my calendar and schedule it in, even if it’s not for another month or two… or even six. The trick is to allow enough time to prepare for the event in advance and, once the date approaches, treat it as you would any other appointment you’ve booked with someone important – keep it. Make decisions fearlessly Clutter often represents unmade decisions. Many people struggle with indecision because of the fear of making a mistake (especially perfectionists). It may seem easier to avoid making the decision, but by doing so, you are deciding to procrastinate and stay stuck. Whenever possible, make decisions as you go along, before they accumulate. Although there’s no guarantee you will make the right decision, you will be taking the option that appears to be the right thing to do at the time. Avoid berating yourself if the outcome is less than you had hoped, and besides, there’s usually some recourse. See it as a great learning experience and move on. One effective decision-making technique is to ask: “What’s the worse thing that can happen if I make the wrong decision?” and “Can I live with that consequence?” This usually puts the decision into perspective and helps you make it confidently.

renters’help

a new apartment

A new life By Jane Herman

Life is a journey, from chiLdhood to aduLthood to oLd age... But the path is not always a straight and even one, twisting and turning through varying stages of our evolution, as we develop our independence, find a partner and build a family, live in an empty nest and ultimately on our own again. Sometimes, a long term relationship ends in a divorce or the death of one’s spouse. (Apparently 50 per cent of all marriages do end in divorce). Another major life change occurs when grown children move on, leaving empty-nesters to readjust once again.

46G


Knowing that our lives do change, sometimes abruptly, it can be reassuring to know that apartment living offers many social and financial advantages that can help us to successfully transition through a variety of challenging situations. That First Apartment Helps Build Independence After attending school in Montreal and living with roommates, my son announced that he no longer needed to live in the same household as us, that he was perfectly capable of cooking, cleaning, doing his own laundry and managing on his own. He’s never looked back, nor have we. Living alone for the first time affords a hands-on opportunity to share the expenses and responsibilities of managing a household with roommates – and can help develop the skills needed for later in life. Apartment Living Facilitates the Transition to Life in Canada New immigrants, depending on their circumstances and where they have come from, often arrive in Canada and may be surprised to discover that in our society collective, intergenerational living is not the norm. Some immigrants may initially choose to live with relatives and/or friends while learning their way around, finding a job, and adjusting to a new culture. Renting is a great option during this period of transition, and gives you the flexibility to move again once you have found a job, or chosen a different neighbourhood or city where you ultimately want to settle. Apartment Living Helps you Get Back on Your Feet After a messy divorce several years ago, a friend of mine moved with her two adolescent daughters to a comfortable three-bedroom rental

apartment, to minimize her expenses and get her finances in order.“Renting was a great option for me at that time,” she recalled.“Not only was it the most economical option available – no property taxes or maintenance fees, as in a condo – there were no landscaping or maintenance issues to worry about – even the hydro was included! Even better, the management company organized a lot of social activities for the residents, so I had the opportunity to meet a lot of my neighbours, which I found helpful and welcoming while going through the transition to being a single mom.” Renting Helps to Transition After the Death of a Spouse Since the death of his wife only three months ago, a man I know has moved into an apartment downtown, within walking distance of his office. After several months of coming home to an empty house filled with reminders of their life together, their children now grown, surrounded by married friends, and suddenly on his own again, he found living in a new space, with furniture he had chosen by himself, helped him to move on. Renting – and in a lively downtown

neighbourhood where great shopping and entertainment opportunities abound – was the option also chosen by his octogenarian mother, who also had the good fortune to meet a very nice gentleman in her building, after her husband died three years ago. Selling the marital home after the death of a spouse late in life affords you the advantage of the considerable equity you have accumulated, and enjoy the convenience of walking to neighbourhood shopping and recreation as well as potential social opportunities. When life takes an unexpected turn in a new direction, remember the financial freedom and social advantages renting can offer.

The MAC FRPO Lifetime Achievement Award goes to:

Mowbray Sifton

T

here are many highly respected property management companies and landlords across Ontario. The members of the Federation of Renalhousing Providers of Ontario (FRPO) are proof that the great effort goes into providing great communities that are comfortable and well-managed. Many companies helped shape the residential rental industry in this province, while a select few are actually responsible for shaping the physical landscape. Each year at the FRPO MAC Awards, the Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes someone who has had a strong role in the industry, for their contribution and lasting impact. At the 2012 FRPO MAC Awards Mowbray Sifton of Sifton was the well-deserving recipient of this esteemed honour. Starting in London and branching out into Brantford and Guelph, Sifton now owns and manages over 2,500 rentals, including apartments and towns. The company is also one of Southwestern Ontario’s largest home builders, and since their beginnings in construction, Sifton has also built a great number of the rental

50G

communities – but it started with Mowbray Sifton’s vision. While there was a great demand for rental accommodations in London in the 60s, many were concerned about how to shape a rental community. There were worries that it wouldn’t succeed or flourish. But Mowbray had vision and wanted to create residential rentals that would encourage community, that would be well-loved and well-utilized. In creating Berkshire Village he based this vision on an English Village. Instead of just fitting in as many apartments as possible in the area available he considered what the residents would want and need to feel comfortable and enjoy the community. Mowbray Sifton created a masterplanned community, something far ahead of its time. Greenspace, parks, ambling space was interwoven in this rental community. It was an ideal foundation, and it worked. Berkshire has thrived and set the pace for the development of many more rental communities.

In fact in 2007, 44 years after the launch of this community, FRPO recognized Berkshire Village as The Best Streetscape in Ontario. Quite a long-lasting legacy! But Mowbray Sifton and the Sifton company have continued in the vein of putting residents first and recognizing the importance of the people living in the community. The number of longterm residents speaks for itself, but establishing the Quarter Century Club at Berkshire was Sifton’s way of recognizing residents’ loyalty and patronage. With a plaque and a monetary gift, Sifton is one of the few companies who pay their residents for staying! The innovation, attention and great consideration that Mowbray Sifton has shown the industry throughout his career has done more than earn him a Lifetime Achievement Award, it has created generations of families who have enjoyed having a wonderful place to call home.

in the news

Affordable rentals bring diversity and opportunity to ToronTo neighbourhoods On a quiet stretch Of Jarvis street, Toronto Community Housing employees are helping change lives, one set of keys at a time.

“People are amazed when they learn they can afford to live where they want to be,” says Antoanela Culcearu. “Affordable rentals make this possible.” Culcearu is the manager of Toronto Community Housing’s Rental Opportunities Office, which helps Toronto residents find affordable rentals across the city. When new Toronto Community Housing President and CEO Gene Jones visited the office this past November, he entered a hive of activity. As one client studied the floor plans of his new unit in the Railways Lands, phones rang and more clients came streaming through the door. Jones met with Culcearu and her staff, who walked him through the application process for affordable rentals. “It’s a pleasure to be here and to see the great work you all do,” said Jones. “Our affordable rental buildings help make Toronto’s great neighbourhoods diverse and exciting places to live.”

The Railway Rentals building near Bathurst and Front Streets

54G

Set at or below the average rent for a similar unit in Toronto, affordable rentals play an important role in Toronto’s competitive rental market. Since Toronto Community Housing began offering them in 2010, the demand has been enormous. “Our clients range from young professionals to families with young children to seniors, and everyone in between,” says Culcearu.


Andrea Harper reviewing floor plans with an affordable rental applicant

“Our client base includes Toronto Community Housing residents who are leaving their social housing unit and moving up to an affordable rental,” says Andrea Harper, a member of the Rental Opportunities team. “Affordable rentals can be a great stepping stone for social housing residents.” “The most rewarding part of our jobs is experiencing the happiness of our clients when we help them find the perfect home,” says Harper. “We never get tired of seeing those happy looks on people’s faces.” Toronto Community Housing will be opening two new buildings with affordable rental units next year: a family building in Regent Park and a seniors building in the West Don Lands. Visit www.torontohousing.ca/rent or call 416981-RENT (7368) to learn more about affordable rentals and how to qualify.

Toronto Community Housing President and CEO Gene Jones with staff members at the Rental Opportunities Office

Know your rentals: Toronto Community Housing offers three kinds of rental housing – affordable, market rental, and rent-geared-to-income. • Affordable rental households pay rent that is set at or below average market rent. To qualify, an applicant’s household annual gross income cannot be more than four times the annual rent of the unit they are applying for. • Market rent is the same or slightly lower than rent charged by private landlords.

The West Don Lands affordable rental homes: currently under construction

• rent-geared-to-income (RGI) households pay rent that is set at 30 per cent of their annual income. The waiting list for RGI units in Toronto is managed by Housing Connections, a subsidiary of Toronto Community Housing. Income restrictions apply.

MUGGED

Joe. Java. Café. Cuppa coffee. Whatever you call it, that burst of caffeine always makes it easier to start the day. Considering it’s the the second most valuable traded commodity in the world (second only to crude oil) the world needs a lot of mugs to keep up with consumption! Choose a cup carefully, you need a mug that doesn’t just match the décor, it should match your attitude. by ELISA KROVBLIT

THE 15-POINT MOVING DAY CHECKLIST b y da n h o p k i n s

Moving is never easy or effortless, but there are ways to siMplify. I recommend the following 15-point checklist to help you complete your move in a stress free way:

98G

1

Double-check all closets, drawers and shelves, in addition to the attic and garage to ensure they are empty.

2 3

Carry important documents, money and jewelry with you.

4

Remember to pack a box of basics that you may need on move-in day (tools, paper products, all-purpose household cleaners, etc.). Be sure to have it loaded last so that it will be first off at your new home.

Pack toys, games or special items for the kids to keep them busy during the move.

5

Don’t pack paint, bottles of bleach, gas cans or other inflammables. It is against federal law for movers to transport flammable and combustible materials.

6

Use strong boxes and containers that can be secured tightly. Purchase special boxes for dishes, wardrobes and other special items.

7

Pack audio-video equipment in their original boxes. Label cables and tighten transit screws. Before removing cables, take pictures of the back of the unit so you can hook everything back up the same way. If removing screws, tape them to the objects they are removed from.

8 9

Avoid loading more than 50 pounds into one box.

12

Have rugs and draperies cleaned before moving and leave them in wrappings for the move.

13

Pack medicines in a plastic re-sealable zipper storage bag or leak-proof container.

14

Check the weather forecast for your move day. If it’s going to be hot, be sure to have a cooler with lots of bottled water and sports drinks on ice.

15

Call your moving company the day before your move to get a contact number for the crew in case you need to contact them en route. Give your mover your cell phone number and be sure to fully charge your cell phone the night before your moving day.

Label each box and indicate: which room it should go in; whether it is fragile; and if it should be loaded last so it will be unloaded first.

10

Cushion contents with packing materials such as bubble wrap, newspaper or tissue. Save room by using towels and blankets to wrap fragile items.

11

Pack books tightly on end in small boxes. If they are musty smelling, sprinkle talcum powder between the pages and wrap the books before packing. Leave them stored for a couple of months to eliminate the smell.

Scrumpdillyicious

LesLie styLes, foodie & traveL aficionado, shares some deLicious dishes found on her traveLs around the worLd.

the ‘hungry monk’ Banoffi Pie

directions

For the pastry, place the flour and sugar in a bowl, cut the butter into cubes and then rub the mixture together until it resembles fine bread crumbs. Work the egg into the dough to form a paste, then cover and chill for half an hour. Preheat the oven to 400°F. When ready, lightly grease a 10-inch by 1 1/2-inch deep loose bottomed tart tin, and line with the pastry thinly rolled out. Prick the base all over with a fork, line with parchment paper and weigh down with dry beans. Bake for 15 minutes then remove the beans and parchment. Put the pastry case back into the oven and cook until its evenly golden. Remove from the oven and cool. For the toffee sauce, start by placing the unopened tins in a deep pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil on the stovetop. Cover with a lid and transfer to a preheated 285°F oven for 3 1/2 hours. Lift the tins from the water and allow to cool completely before opening. Note: The longer they cook, the darker and thicker the toffee will be.

a

s the story goes, Ian Dowding and Nigel Mackenzie are credited with the ‘invention’ of Banoffi Pie, which they first served at their award-winning Sussex gastropub The Hungry Monk restaurant in Jevington, East Sussex. Developed in 1972, the dessert was inspired by an American dish known as Blum’s Coffee Toffee Pie, which consisted of smooth toffee topped with coffee-flavoured whipped cream. Dowding adapted the recipe to instead use a soft caramel toffee created by boiling a can of condensed milk, and worked with Mackenzie to add a layer of bananas, calling the dish “Banoffi” — a blend of the words ‘banana’ and ‘toffee’. It was an immediate success, proving so popular with their customers that they couldn’t take it off the menu. If you’re just discovering Banoffi Pie, you’re in for a treat. The decadent combination of buttery crisp shortbread pie crust, Dulce de Leche toffee and slices of sweet bananas, all covered with lashings of whipped cream, is rumoured to have been one of Margaret Thatcher’s favourite puddings and also among the more popular treats served at Buckingham Palace.

To compose the pie, carefully spread the toffee over the cooked pastry, then top with peeled and sliced bananas. Whip the cream, sugar and instant coffee granules, until thick and smooth. To finish, spoon the cream over the bananas, up to the edge of the pastry, then lightly sprinkle with freshly ground coffee, and garnish with some sliced bananas on top, just before serving.

ingredients serves 4 recipe courtesy of ian dowding of ‘the Hungry Monk’

For the pastry: › 9 oz plain flour › 1 oz icing sugar › 4 1/2 oz butter › 1 egg & 1 egg yolk

116G

For the Banoffi toffee sauce: › 1 1/2 tins condensed milk - 13.5 ounces each › 5-6 firm yet ripe bananas › 1 1/2 cups double cream - whipping cream or crème fraîche work well too › 1 tsp instant coffee › 1 tbsp caster sugar › 1 tsp freshly ground coffee

CHALK IT UP TO

good style

E

veryone’s life needs a bit of organization – so why not do it with a bit of fun and whimsy? For a new way to get organized, think charming, unique. Think chalkboard paint. That’s right, the Krylon paint company tells us that the old-school chalkboard is making a stylish come back. Take a look at their creative tips to make your home organized, stylish and enjoyable:

Definable drawers Is your home being over-run with clutter? The best way to overcome clutter – and keep it tidy – is to ensure everything has its place. Labeling is a great way to stay organized and alert family members to where items are – and where to put them away. Using stickers and markers for identification can sometimes look plain and boring – and are more permanent. Luckily, there is another way to label… chalkboard paint. Drawers are ideal for storage and come in a variety of sizes to store anything from toys to jewelry. Plus, you can find great deals on old sets at yard sales or thrift stores. To start, simply clean and

paint your drawers in a colour that coordinates with your room’s décor. Once the paint is dry, create a border around the front of each drawer with painter’s tape. Next, spray several even coats of the Krylon product called Chalkboard Spray Paint inside the taped area. When the entire project is dry, use chalk to identify the contents of each drawer. And, don’t limit yourself to white chalk. Coloured chalk can add a stylish twist to your project. Paint the clock to organize your schedule – or your whole family’s – keep track of time with a fun and creative schedule clock. This unique project replaces traditional hours and minutes with your daily activities. Start by finding a large, flat, wall-hanging clock and carefully remove the hands. Then, apply a coat of the Indoor/ Outdoor charcoal black primer to cover the entire clock, making it the same even colour. Once the primer has dried, apply three coats of the Chalkboard Spray Paint. Finally, when the clock is fully dry, re-attach the clock hands and finish by designating certain hours for your daily tasks. This project is especially ideal for young children who don’t yet know how to tell time; simply use drawings to

help them know when it is time for their activities and you’ll avoid the everyday question of“is it time to__ yet?” Labels for Entertaining Tables When entertaining guests, you want them to feel welcome and at home – and adding personal messages or labels can be the solution to put your party over the top. Chalkboard paint can be the perfect addition to many of your go-to entertainment pieces. Spray the base of your wine glasses and label with guests’ names to keep track of drinks. Spray the fronts of buckets, bowls or canisters to call out their contents. Spray a large platter or board to create a welcome sign or menu for your guests. The ideas are endless. And, for an extra decorative touch, use Krylon Leafing Pens to create whimsical designs around your creations. Soon, your home will feel more organized and stylish with these easy and delightful craft ideas. And the best thing about the chalkboard finish, is that you can constantly change it up. Simply erase and write something new. More information is available online at www.krylon.ca. NC.

HOME

sweet HOME OFFICE

Sharing a home workspace means compromise BY KIM CARLTON

While the zones of the home that are used for sleep, eating and play get more of the glory, it’s important to have a place where you can get down to business. Whether that is a home business, or homework, correspondence, crafts, paying bills or occasional work from home, the space must fit the purpose. But what if there are various people who need to use the home office for different reasons? Or if you just need to entertain your kids so that you can keep an eye on them while you work? We talked to experts about how you can make the most of your family home office.


LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION Do you have a spare bedroom, den or a basement that can be used for this purpose? “You need quiet, especially if you telecommute. A high-traffic area doesn’t really work,” says Adam Shearer, president of California Closets. In smaller spaces, families must be creative. A spare bedroom can have options for a home office, says Enrico Terisigni, general manager of Organized Interiors. The company even offers a wall bed home office system. It has a double- or a queen-sized bed that pulls down from wall when needed – with space for pillows and clothing. “When the bed is not needed, it goes back up against the wall, and there’s room for a home office, as well as files and secret documents,” he says. Organized Interiors even has an “office in a closet” solution that is very popular. FULLY EQUIPPED AND DESIGNED FOR YOUR FAMILY Once you’ve decided where your office will go, think about what will be needed in it. Shearer says that most offices include lower or base cabinetry that could house file drawers, a work surface or countertop, and upper storage. Seating is also very important. Having enough legroom is key. “We recommend a minimum of 30 inches under that countertop for someone to sit and work.” Don’t forget about the little details about the unique people who are going to use the office. Are the people who use it right or left handed? Is the chair at the right height and ergonomic? Is there adequate light at each workspace? Some people may want to combine the home office with a home craft centre if someone in the family is artistic or wraps a lot of gifts. Remember technological concerns such as power. Are there enough electrical outlets and are they where they need to be so that everyone can plug in their computers? If you need help planning your home office, companies such as California Closets and Organized Interiors can send a designer to evaluate your space and create a customized solution for your family. THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN Safety is paramount. If kids are going to be using the space, is it childproofed for them? Where should the wee ones sit? A child-sized desk or table is great for little ones to colour or do their homework while you work. Having art supplies and toys at their level also promotes creativity and keeps them occupied. SHARING A WORKSPACE How do you make the home office work so that people can work together at the same time? “Ideally, it needs to be laid out so there are areas for everyone to sit,” says Shearer. “If you don’t have enough room, you are going to have to trade off.” Professional organizer Hellen Buttigieg, owner of We Organize U says that “face to face” desks – like for detectives in the movies – “are great for family members that enjoy the

interaction while they work.” If this is too distracting for some people, desks can be placed in each corner of the room. “Keep in mind that each person has their own way of working, and it’s important to set up a space that takes that into consideration,” adds Buttigieg. Sharing some things can make life a lot easier, such as office supplies, and a printer/scanner/copier, says Buttigieg. Shearer suggests a cabinet or file drawer for each family member. Each parent has a drawer for their bills, each child has a drawer for their artwork. Alternatively colour-coded files for each family member can work. Functionality aside, there is the human element of sharing and getting along that makes working together a challenge. How can you make working together pleasant? “Boundaries and respect,” says Buttigieg. “Everyone should have their own space carved out, even if it’s a small section of the room. Family members need to respect and not infringe on someone else’s space. That means one person can’t pile their papers on someone else’s desk when their own desk gets buried.”

MINE, YOURS, AND OURS:

Managing your money as co-CFOs Whether you’re making a big purchase, planning a career change, saving for a child’s education or investing for your retirement, it’s important to recognize the impact that each of these goals has on your overall financial plan. A key ingredient for success is balance – it may be a good idea for one person to pay all the bills, but it’s important that both people are informed about where the money goes each month. Similarly, one CFO may take the lead on investments, but it’s important that the investment strategy reflect the long-term goals of each partner, and that each partner have an understanding of how they are investing to achieve their goal. It’s essential to find ways to

anaging your finances has its challenges – just like managing a successful business. Managing money as a couple? No difference. Whether you’re married, engaged or living together, differences of opinion when it comes to the family finances are bound to arise. However, with some mutual planning, communication and support, couples can overcome almost any money obstacle that falls their way.

be equally engaged in all money decisions: decide together what is mine, yours and ours. “Once you have a plan, the everyday financial decisions are understood and endorsed by each partner. This can help remove stress around money management and help provide confidence about your current and long-term financial health,” Cimoroni says. One way to feel informed and in control is to consult an expert, something more and more couples are doing together. From gaining

“Picture your family finances as you would business finances, and like any business, it needs a plan to succeed,” says Sandy Cimoroni, President, TD Mutual Funds and head of TD’s Women Investor Strategy. She recommends a fresh approach is to tackle family finances together, as co-CFOs. CFOs are a company’s Chief Financial Officer – they invest the company’s money, monitor the cash flow, and handle long term financial planning. “By following this approach, you can work together to manage the family finances: determine your overall goals and objectives, then assign responsibilities for managing the day-to-day finances and monitoring progress towards reaching long-term goals.”

financial education to investment knowledge, advisors help couples work together – and then take their financial plans to new levels of success. “At the end of the day, working together on finances can be a positive experience,” Cimoroni adds. “It’s not just about communication. It’s about creating and executing your plan, and then reaping the rewards.” NC

READ THE CANADIAN

Consumer Handbook to become a savvy consumer

With so many people trying to sell us things these days, it’s hard to separate fact from fiction.

One of the best ways to protect yourself is to consult objective, unbiased sources of information. The Canadian Consumer Handbook, for example, is a trusted resource for factual and impartial information. Here are some of the most popular topics in the handbook and what they deal with: Debt – Deals with the warning signs of debt, taking control of your finances, making a budget, negotiating with collection agencies, credit ratings and reports, the pros and cons of credit counsellors and your rights and responsibilities in filing for bankruptcy. Credit reporting – Describes what a credit rating is, how to order a copy of your personal credit report, how to protect yourself from companies promising to improve your credit rating, and how you can increase your credit score over time. Contracts – Deals with little-known facts about contracts. For example, did you know that in some provinces and territories there is an automatic cancellation or cooling off period for contracts on items such as credit, dating clubs, health clubs, funeral and cemetery services, time-shares, natural gas, electricity and door-to-door sales? Complaints – Offers practical tips on how to complain effectively and get the results you want after something goes wrong. It offers sample letters of complaints and suggestions for last resorts. Housing – Talks about landlord and tenant problems, mortgages and moving. Whether you plan to rent or buy, downsize or upsize, the ins and outs of housing can be confusing. The recently updated handbook is published and maintained by the Consumer Measures Committee, a joint committee of federal, provincial and territorial consumer protection officials. You can even create your own personal handbook using the My Handbook function. You can find the handbook at consumerhandbook.ca NC

What to look for in an apartment BY JANE HERMAN

A

re you feeling a little overwhelmed by the challenge of trying to find an apartment? Even wading through all of the ads and listings in Renters Guide can be daunting, unless you understand how they are organized. But where do you start? The first criteria in your decision should be price: How much can you realistically afford to spend per month? Most financial planners recommend that your rent (not including extras such as parking, hydro, cable, etc.) should amount to less than 30 per cent of your monthly income. This may be hard to achieve, but thinking about how much you can spend on rent will also help you to set up a budget. Include all expenses you’ll be responsible for each month (food, utilities, telephone, transportation, laundry, parking, etc.) and other, annual or variable expenses, such as clothing, moving expenses, renter’s insurance, savings, recreation, entertainment, etc. The more you spend on rent, the less you’ll have available for other things. Next, determine what area you want to live in. How will you determine where to look? If you are new to the area, you may want to live near friends or relatives, within a certain commuting radius of work or school. If you have children, do you want to live in a particular school district? Are parks and play areas nearby? Is proximity to the transit or a major highway may be a priority Is the area convenient to shopping, library, recreation facilities, entertainment, restaurants, etc. What are the traffic patterns in the neighbourhood? How is the traffic at rush hour? How are the noise levels in the area at different times of the day, and would this be a factor in your decision? With these factors in mind, make a list of several different neighbourhoods in which you could look: Area 1: ________________________ Area 2: ________________________ Area 3: ________________________ Type of accommodation: Many apartments are in highrises. A highrise building is one that is six or more storeys, has elevators, security, laundry

facilities, and, frequently, sports and/or recreation facilities and other amenities, as well as efficient electrical, heating and plumbing systems. A walk-up or low-rise would be less than five storeys high, may have no elevator and few conveniences. However, the rent would generally be less at this type of apartment than at a highrise building in the same area. Other kinds of apartments you could rent include: A basement apartment is a basement in a house that has been converted to an apartment. It may have a separate entrance. The apartment may have its own bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and heating system, or it may share those amenities with the rest of the home. A low rise apartment building may also have basement apartments. A duplex, triplex or fourplex is a group of two, three or four apartments together in the same building. Apartment Features Search through the Renters Guide listings to find those that match your criteria. They are organized by area. You should also use Renters Guide companion website, hometrader.ca. It is an excellent source of apartment listings, also organized by area. You can also find potential apartments by walking around or driving through the area you have chosen, or through word of mouth. If a friend or relative is happy living in a particular building, chances are you will be too. When you go to look at apartments, inspect them thoroughly before you sign the lease or give a first month’s rental deposit. Some landlords have a condition checklist on which to record details upon move in and move out. Be sure to inspect walls, floors, bathroom and kitchen faucets and fixtures, appliances, windows, doors, etc. Make sure you note such things as the condition of the property and the building. Note the size and location of the closets. You may want to take along a tape measure to see how your furniture might work in the space. If you go through the process carefully, chances are you’ll be more satisfied with your decision after you move in.

Rental Agreements L]ViNdjH]djaY@cdl 7Z[dgZndjH^\cVAZVhZ

hen you rent a home or apartment in Canada, the landlord will usually ask you to sign a written rental agreement. This legal contract is also often called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lease.â&#x20AC;?

Under the laws of each province and territory, tenants and landlords have certain rights and responsibilities whether they have a written agreement or not. Nevertheless, a written lease agreement can help spell out all the terms you and your landlord want to have covered and agreed to. You may also wish to seek legal advice before accepting the terms.

Packing Tips and List I^ehidbV`ZndjgbdkZVa^iiaZZVh^Zg# PACKING TIPS

P P

Gather boxes in all sizes from friends, neighbors, and stores.

P

Create a “portable packing kit” with marking pens, a tape measure, packing tape, twine, and scissors. Carry it with you as you pack up items around your home.

P P P P P P P P P

Reinforce the bottom of boxes with extra tape for added strength.

P

Don’t move flammable, combustible, corrosive, or explosive items such as paint, gasoline, and ammunition.

P

Pack a bag of personal items you’ll need during the move (change of clothes, toiletries, medicine, maps, food, and drinks). Keep it in an easy-to-find place when you pack

Collect cushioning material such as bubble wrap, foam pellets, furniture pads, old blankets, plastic bags, tissue paper, newspapers, and small towels to use as padding inside boxes.

Label each box with the name of the room in your new home where it should be placed. List the contents of the box on the side of it. Number the boxes and keep a list of which boxes go in which room in your new home. Label boxes containing fragile items with large red lettering. Place china in plastic bags and stack plates upright on their sides, not flat. Pack your TV, stereo, and computer in their original boxes whenever possible. Keep boxes to 50 pounds or less. Pack heavy items into their own smaller boxes and place lighter items together into larger boxes. (Hint-Don’t pack all your books into one box!)

GENERAL MOVING TIPS

P Disconnect and bundle cords on television and stereo components. Label each cord with masking tape and a description of where to connect it.

P Plan and measure where you furniture will be placed in your new home. It’s helpful to draw a layout of your new home and sketch in the major furniture pieces.

P To save time on moving day, move your boxes from the basement, upstairs, or attic to the main floor prior to the move date. Consider carrying items from the back yard to the front yard or garage ahead of time.

P Keep your phone connected through moving day to stay in touch with friends, family and the moving company.

TENANT INSURANCE is affordable peace of mind

S

o, you’ve found your ideal apartment: a two bedroom basement paradise or a mid-town penthouse or a fantastic south-facing one bedroom. Now it’s time to move in right away, right? Sure, start packing, but make sure you also budget for tenant insurance.

Perhaps you think you don’t need it because you’re only renting and you don’t own any fancy stuff. But, what if something happened – would you have enough set aside to replace all your belongings and to find temporary housing? If you said no, Pina FerraroNovello, a corporate underwriter with Desjardins General Insurance Group would like you to reconsider. “Tenant insurance is necessary because it protects your property and also covers you in the event that you accidentally cause damage to the property of others,” said Ferraro-Novello.“For example, if your bathtub overflowed and flooded the apartment below destroying your neighbour’s property, tenant insurance would protect you. Luckily, it’s a simple and affordable coverage. Also, if you’re a student, your parents’ policy might automatically extend coverage to you at school.”

What’s typically covered by tenant insurance? This type of insurance protects you from damage, like fire, theft, certain water damage and vandalism. If your

apartment is seriously damaged as a result of an insured loss, tenant insurance would also typically cover your additional living expenses while it’s being repaired. Tenant insurance also provides liability coverage if someone gets hurt because of your negligence, like slipping and falling on a wet floor in your apartment for example.

How much coverage do you need? The total cost of tenant’s insurance will depend largely on the value of your contents. Most renters tend to underestimate what it would cost to replace their belongings. It’s smart to take an inventory, including photos, which only takes a few minutes and will make things a lot easier if you experience a loss. Start by walking from room to room and itemize all the contents, including your closets and cupboards. You might think they’re not worth that much until you have to replace them. Keep in mind however that coverage for some insured items may be subject to exclusions or maximum limits. Read your policy carefully to determine your exact coverage. Typical items to include on your inventory are: computer, printer, tablet, smart phone, flat screen TV, video game system and games, music player and other electronics, clothes, shoes, boots, pots, pans, other personal and household items.

STAYING HOME with the KIDS B Y GAI L VAZ -OX LADE

O

ne of the big questions new moms and dads grappling with is whether to go back to work. Many parents find that they really want to stay home and raise their kids. Just as it makes no sense to go into pregnancy with your eyes closed, clueless as to how youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cope financially, the same holds true for making the decision to stay home with the kids or go back to work. It shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a guess. It should be based on the black and red of your situation.

TRN02_SectionB_48pgs.indd 68

1/18/13 2:11:20 PM


finances

Here are some things you’ll need to add into the equation: TAXES. A lot of the income you will make will be eaten up by taxes. If you’re returning to an existing job, you need only look at an old pay stub or last year’s tax return. If you’re looking for a new job, you’ll need to figure how just how much tax you’ll pay. Here is a terrific and easy-to-use calculator. CHILD CARE. The next biggie is paying someone to do at least part of the job you’d be doing if you stayed home. You can hire a nanny, pay for out-of-home childcare or, if you’re really lucky, rope your parents into being all things to your kids while you’re off in the mines. There’s a cost to it all, and you’ve got to figure out what that cost will be for your family. TRANSPORTATION. You’ll have to be able to get to and from work. If you live further than walking distance to where you work, it could be as inexpensive as public transportation, or as expensive as a plane-ride. If you’re driving, you’ll have to not only figure out the cost of gas, but the additional wear and tear on the car, resulting in a higher maintenance costs. Don’t forget the additional trips to and from your childcare provider. CLOTHES. If you have to maintain a “professional” appearance at work, what’s it going to cost to keep you shod? If you’re carrying a lot of baby-weight, are you going to need a whole new work wardrobe? DRYCLEANING. If you’re wearing a Power Suit to work, it’ll have to be cleaned once in a while. FOOD. While it may be your (best) intention to take your lunch to work, you should also budget for the occasional lunch out, the occasional coffee with the chicks at work, the occasional birthday celebration.

worked out the money thang, and it says “go back” but you hate your job, you hate your boss, you hate your commute, it may be time to think about making money some other way.

HOUSEKEEPING. If you’re both back to work full time with a new baby to look after, may you need to hire someone to do the vacuuming. Even if it’s twice a month, it’s an expense for which you need to budget.

There are lots of people who change careers, develop new skills (while off with baby in that first year), or upgrade their skills. There are people who find ways to work a full week in three days, so they’re home four days with baby. There are couples who work off-shift, so one or the other parent is home with the kids. There are tonnes of ways to have the life you want. But you have to think about it. You have to plan.

LOST WAGES. If you’re both working, someone’s going to have to take time off if baby gets sick. Will one or the other of you get docked if you have to take the occasional day off to stay home with a sick child? That’s the money. But there’s another equation you have to think about… the happiness equation. If you love the work you do, that’ll go in the pro column. If you’re doing a job just for the money, your motivation to leave your baby will be very low. If you’ve

SAVING EARLY FOR YOUR CHILD’S education pays off

A

s a parent, you want the best for your family. This includes helping your child continue his or her education in an apprenticeship program, at a CEGEP, a college, a trade school or a university. Studies show that nowadays, two out of every three jobs require post-secondary education.

To help you start saving, the Government of Canada provides a Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) of between 20 to 40 cents on every dollar, depending on your income, for the first $500 you contribute to a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP). The lifetime maximum grant that you can obtain through the CESG is $7,200 per child. You could also qualify for the Canada Learning Bond (CLB), a grant of $500, plus an extra $100 per year until your child is 15 years old, to a maximum of $2000. RESPs are an effective and popular way to save for your child’s future education and help families get further money from the Government of Canada. Once you open an RESP, the money you contribute, plus any money your child receives from the Government of Canada, starts to grow. At the same time, you are encouraging your child to continue his or her education after high school. It’s a win-win situation for everyone. It is more important than ever that Canadians have the right skills, training and education after high school to participate in the job market. So, the sooner that parents start planning, saving and talking about post-secondary education with their child, the better. Give your child a brighter future by taking advantage of the Government of Canada education savings incentives.

Winter Grilling TIPS & TRICKS

Barbecuing isn’t just for the lazy days of summer. Delicious grilled meals are easy to prepare yearround. Here are a few tips for winter barbecuing that are important to remember before you get the snow shovel out.

TRN02_SectionB_48pgs.indd 74

1 Always pre-heat your barbecue. Pre-heat to 400º f – 450º f at minimum, and adjust the temperature from there. Remember, if food doesn’t sizzle when you put it on the grill, your barbecue is not hot enough. 2 If you are grilling with charcoal, include more charcoal for increased pre-heating time and extra heat while grilling. 3 Cooking times may change with extreme cold; always use an instant read thermometer to ensure that foods are cooked thoroughly. 4 Grill with the lid down – heat loss on a cold day is significantly greater than a warm summer day – keeping your barbecue at a consistent temperature will be very difficult with the lid open. 5 When grilling on a windy day, try to reduce your exposure to the wind – if grilling at lower temperatures, keep an eye on your barbecue to ensure that it does not blow out. If you do need to move

your barbecue out of the wind, keep minimum clearances in mind to avoid damaging your deck or home. 6 Clear a work area around your barbecue – this won’t impact cooking time, but having enough room to work without filling your boots with snow makes for a much more enjoyable barbecue experience and avoids any untimely slips or falls. 7 Lighting – several lighting options are available – some barbecues have built in lighting, and add-on handle lights are available so you’re not grilling in the dark. Broil King offers a variety of lighting options for their barbecues. 8 Never use your barbecue indoors, in your garage, or in an enclosed area. Carbon Monoxide accumulation, accidental fire damage, and smoke damage are all possible – it’s not worth the risk. More information on grilling and great recipe ideas is available at www.broilkingbbq.com NC

Tips for a

Successful Search

I

BY JANE HERMAN

t took weeks of searching for my daughter and son-in-law before they finally found their first apartment! Despite all I know about apartment-hunting, accompanying them on their search provided me with fresh insight into the process, to help simplify this task for you.

TRN02_SectionB_48pgs.indd 80

1/18/13 2:11:30 PM


ESTABLISH A BUDGET Before embarking on your search, establish a price range you can realistically afford. Financial experts generally recommend that your rent be no more than 25 to 30 per cent of your gross monthly income. Don’t forget that you will have to put down a first and last month’s rent deposit with your application. (Security deposits are not allowed by law in Ontario).

DEFINE THE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN WHICH YOU WISH TO LIVE Is proximity to the subway an important criteria for you? Or perhaps proximity to a particular highway. Establish the boundaries of the area(s) in which you want to look.

GENERAL IMPRESSION OF THE BUILDING AND MANAGEMENT/STAFF: Note the condition of the building, both on the exterior and interior. Is it clean and well-maintained? Were you impressed with the level of professionalism of the rental agent or building manager? Are there maintenance personnel on site?

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE RENT? Make sure you understand what fees (such as utilities) are included in the rent. Heat and water are included as a matter of course. Hydro may be extra. If you require parking, what is the monthly rate? Is there visitor parking? Are there storage lockers?

CHECK OUT THE COMMON AREAS: Don’t forget to have a look at the lobby, garage, and other common areas such as workout or party room and note the condition (is there a lot of damage? How is the lighting?)

TRN02_SectionB_48pgs.indd 81

Note the level of cleanliness. These all give some indication of the standard of maintenance in the building. How safe is the neighbourhood? What type of security system is in place?

MISCELLANEOUS When you go to view an apartment, it may be occupied by other tenants. Note the condition of the apartment, such as the floors, paint (are there bubbles on the walls or other signs that a paint job is needed)? In some of the apartments I recently viewed, it was standard practice to paint,or in some cases, update appliances or bathroom fixtures in preparation for a new tenant. Find out exactly what the landlord might do before you move in (you might have some input into paint colours, for example). Note the lighting fixtures, number of electrical outlets (you might need to use extension cords), and the location of phone jacks. Can you make any modifications (like installing a ceiling fan) to the apartment?

TAKE GOOD NOTES OF ALL THE APARTMENTS YOU SEE You won’t be able to completely rely on your memory after you have seen three orfour apartments. Some companies have floorplans to take with you which are very helpful Take along a notepad and pen and a measuring tape. You may want to bring a digital camera to better remember the layout and other features.

MAKING THE DECISION What really impressed you about your first choice? Before you make a final decision it’s a good idea to compare the trade-offs (proximity to the subway vs. size of the unit, etc.) and talk it over with a friend or relative who lives in the area.

Make a list of your requirements and carry it with you on your search. Here are some features to start with. You may wish to add others: Type of building you prefer (duplex/fourplex, low rise, midrise, high rise, etc.) # of bedrooms # of bathrooms Air conditioning or window sleeves where wall units can be added Balcony Cable Closets and storage (make sure they are adequate for your requirements) Dishwasher (or room to add a portable dishwasher) Elevator (or no elevator, or, walking distance to the ground) Exercise room Handicapped access Laundry facility (on premises, hours, level of cleanliness, etc.) Internet Pets Pool (indoor or outdoor) Smoking permitted? Suitable for children (if applicable) View or orientation (if you’re facing one direction (such as west) you may find the apartment quite warm, especially in the summer) Jane Herman is a Communications Consultant who has worked in the rental property industry. Her company, Jane Herman Communications (www.janeherman. ca) provides communications solutions for a diverse range of clients. Jane has written about food, fashion, apartment living and personal finance for several Toronto publications.

QUICK TIPS FOR COFFEE CREATIONS in your own kitchen Coffee culture in Canada has evolved enormously over the past decade.

T

here are an increasing number of coffee shops, java joints and cafĂŠs lining our streets. Inside we admire the artful baristas who craft beautiful coffee-based beverages for a morning caffeine fix, the perfect afternoon â&#x20AC;&#x153;pickme-upâ&#x20AC;? and even a calming companion to take the edge off of a first date. The downside of our adoration for coffee is that enjoying it can quickly become a pricey habit. Buying a daily cup of simple drip coffee can cost up to $60 a month. Double that amount if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one who craves an espresso fix.

While you may love hearing your name as the barista hands you a latte â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the crema perfectly adorned with a bit of art â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason why you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easily enjoy that same great experience in your own kitchen. The key is knowing a couple of things about the science of making coffee and the art of choosing the right equipment.

Roasted Almond Focaccia Bread with Grapes and Rosemary Make your own homemade focaccia with this simple recipe that’s perfect for entertaining or an easy at-home snack. Topped with fresh grapes, fragrant rosemary, crunchy roasted almonds and a dash of sea salt, it’s a great appetizer for a party. SERVES 6 INGREDIENTS: 4 ½ tsp (22 mL) active dry yeast 1 cup (240 mL) warm water, between 110°F (43°C) and 115°F (46°C) 3 cups (750 mL) all-purpose flour, more as needed 3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil, plus more for topping 3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped rosemary 1 tsp (5 mL) salt 1 cup (250 mL) red grapes, sliced 2 tbsp (30 mL) rosemary sprigs ½ cup (125 mL) dry roasted almonds, roughly chopped Coarse sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper for topping

DIRECTIONS:

In a large bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water. Stir to dissolve. Add 1 cup (250 mL) flour and blend together until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. After mixture has risen, remove covering and stir in 3 tbsp (45 mL) of olive oil, sugar and chopped rosemary. Add 1 cup (250 mL) of flour and stir to blend. Add remaining 1 cup (250 mL) of flour and salt and work together into a shaggy dough.

TRN02_SectionB_48pgs.indd 86

Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes. If dough is too sticky, add up to 1/3 cup (75 mL) more flour and knead. Dough should be slightly sticky. Coat a large bowl with olive oil. Place dough in bowl, and flip it so that it’s entirely coated in oil. Cover with plastic wrap again and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Place a rack in the centre of the oven and preheat to 375°F (190°C). Remove dough from bowl and knead for just a minute. Transfer dough to an oiled 16 by 9 baking sheet. Pull and stretch dough into a rectangle to fit the pan. Use your fingers to make random indentations in the puffed dough. Drizzle generously with olive oil. Top with grapes, rosemary sprigs, dry roasted almonds, and sprinkle with coarse sea salt and cracked pepper. Bake bread for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden, crisp and baked through. Rotate pan once, halfway through baking. Remove from toven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove from baking pan, slice into generous squares, and serve warm with extra olive oil. NC

^cYZh^\c by EVELYN ESHUN NOW THAT 2013 IS OFF TO A GOOD START,

we are starting to see quite a few trends emerging which will shape the ear ahead. Trends evolve and transform through the seasons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; influenced by a variety of factors such as media, fashion, etc. These days, technology is a very strong influence in our lives and it is influencing the manufacturing process and the features of many products. Technology is also important in design and it is being seen more and more in bathroom spaces. With the daily stress in our lives, your bathroom can now offer

TRN02_SectionB_48pgs.indd 88

you the type of stress relief you need to get through the day. Showers come with their own remote control where you are able to control the temperature and pressure of jets even before walking into your shower, as well as the music through bluetooth technology. I adore this oneâ&#x20AC;Ś VibrAcoustic technology brings the transformative force of music into the bathroom. Soundwaves displace water creating vibrations and allowing sound to resonate . Simply put, you can enjoy your favourite tunes through

the water in your bathtub and also the soothing benefits of chromatherapy through the use of LED light. Music, light, vibration – it’s the ultimate relaxation formula, sign me up! How about this feature? A television within your mirror so that you do not miss a single moment of your favourite shows. Available locally at Lumidesign, this technology is not new, but certainly perfected by this company. Mirrors are outfitted with LED technology to provide television viewing. When wall mounted, the unit sits 1.75-inches off the wall. The ideal installation is where the product is hardwired directly into your existing power line, however, it can be plugged in upon request. Lighting is truly key in interior design and I am happy to say that people are becoming more aware of the importance of investing in proper lighting. LED (light emitting diode) lighting offers a multitude of advantages over traditional light sources including lower electricity consumption, a longer lifetime, higher durability, no ultraviolet and infrared radiation, low heat and smaller size. The flexibility of LED is limitless…it can be applied under cabinets in your kitchen, along hallways. It not only looks good,

it is also a great safety feature. I love this new trend and I know I will be offering more LED-lighting options for my clients this year. I’m really excited and inspired by the extent of what technology can offer the design of our interiors. This allows designers to make your home work better for you. It transforms your home into the sanctuary that it should be and provides conveniences like never before.

Make your resolutions

ACHIEVABLE

H

ere’s a New Year’s resolution anyone can keep: resolve not to make any more New Year’s resolutions.

That might feel good in the moment, but, if you’re trying to find a mate, shed some weight, or save money this year, simply abandoning resolutions isn’t going to help. Advisors tell us that by setting realistic goals where changes are small, you are more likely to form habits that will stay with you throughout the year. Amanda Burton, a registered dietitian at Recipe for Health, says, “The problem with most New Year’s resolutions is that they focus on taking something away from someone and tend to accentuate the negative rather than the positive. By focusing on how you can live positively, you are more likely to achieve success.” In her role as a professional dietitian, Burton most often sees clients who come

TRN02_SectionB_48pgs.indd 90

to her seeking help with the goal of losing weight. She suggests starting with these simple steps: Think positively: According to the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, researchers have found that practicing positive thinking can increase your chances of weight loss success.Go slow: Any diet change is easier if you take it slowly. Why not promise to add a new piece of fruit to your brown bag lunch each week or an extra serving of vegetables at dinner versus doing a big diet overhaul? Think small: Don’t restrict yourself from the foods and drinks you love. Instead, have small amounts of your favourites. If you like soda pop for example, Burton suggests those Coke mini cans which offer a smaller portion size. Love burgers? Consider keeping calories in check by having a slider loaded with your favourite vegetable toppings, like lettuce, onions and tomato. Buddy up: Find someone with similar goals to help you through the year. Be sure to share your ideas, plans, and successes regularly. By simply stating your intentions to someone else, you are more likely to achieve long-term success. By following these simple tips, you can avoid making New Year’s resolutions forever and simply enjoy new habits for years to come. NC

Warm up with a winter fondue Originally from Switzerland, the fondue started as a tasty way to use up leftover cheese. Today as well, there’s nothing like a warm cheesy fondue to bring together friends and family on a cold winter night. Take a look at this tantalizing recipe created by Chef Michael P. Clive: INGREDIENTS: 1 bottle Rickard’s Oakhouse 2 ½ cups, smoked gouda, shredded 1 cup gruyere, shredded 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour A few drops of Worcestershire sauce 1 ½ pounds cubed or thick sliced and browned sausage 1 head cauliflower, separated into florets, blanched

DIRECTIONS:

Combine cheeses in a bowl with flour. Add Rickard’s Oakhouse beer to a small pot and bring to a bubble over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add cheese in handfuls. Stir constantly, melting the cheese in batches. Stir in a figure-eight pattern with a wooden spoon. When the cheese has been incorporated fully, stir in the Worcestershire sauce. Transfer fondue to warm fondue pot. NC

1 Red pepper, grilled, sliced 1 small jar mini Gherkin pickles, drained 1 baguette, pumpernickel or sour dough loaf, cubed

WHEN A NEW CLIENT STARTS WORKING WITH US, ONE OF THE FIRST

conversations we have is about their budget. It’s important that we know what the total allocated funds are for a project so priorities can be made and funds distributed accordingly. For projects large or small, there will always be a bottom line. With experience, I’ve learned a few ways to maximize budgets of all sizes, to deliver a finished room that helps my clients enhance their quality of life. The first way I help my clients maximize their budget is through defining their priorities. In one of our first conversations, I ask clients to name five

1/18/13 2:11:58 PM


things they want to see changed in their space, and to list them in sequential order. We do this at the very beginning to ensure we are making the best decisions with the funds available. Listing priorities forces clients to narrow their focus and ensure those five things are top quality. Even in the largest of budgets, unexpected situations can occur. Focusing on a limited list of “must-haves” for a project helps to ensure quality pieces can be acquired to serve the individual needs of the users. The second way I ensure my client’s’dollar is spent wisely is with working with experienced trades. Experienced trades will often point out ways to save my clients money. For example, when I design custom wall units, my millworker will advise small alterations that won’t impact the overall aesthetic, but will save the client money because it uses slightly less material and produces less waste. In addition, experience has shown me that seasoned trades make fewer mistakes. It doesn’t mean they don’t make any mistakes – but experience is a great teacher. Another way I am able to ensure funds are spent in the best possible way for my clients is in careful utilization of colour and pattern. For example, installing patterned wallpaper on a feature wall, while it may not seem like a cost-saving solution, will reduce the need for art or other pattern in the room. On a similar note, I wrap many of the small spaces I design in deep, saturated hues. I find that a bold colour choice makes such a strong statement that other elements used in the room can be more demure. Moreover, a technique I have used in spaces with more limited budgets is to emulate the look of wallpaper with paint. Stripes or stencils and a bit of sweat equity can yield stunning results. The final way I help clients get the most out of every purchase is through being resourceful and thinking outside the box in regard to materials. I’m currently working on a project where the budget would not allow for wallpaper, as window coverings were higher on the list of priorities. Working with a window covering specialist from Budget Blinds, we selected a patterned roller shade that provides the function needed for the large windows, and when pulled down, injects the pattern that is achieved with wallpaper. With the large expanse of windows I am dealing with in this situation, I get form and function in one purchase.

ANOTHER WAY I AM ABLE TO ENSURE FUNDS ARE SPENT IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY FOR MY CLIENTS IS IN CAREFUL UTILIZATION OF COLOUR AND PATTERN.
