Happy Together

Like Brad and Angelina, the Captain and Tennille, to some extent, Kermit and Miss Piggy, they are all celebrity couples who happen to also work together. Such situations are rare and not many of them all work out (take Kermit and Miss Piggy, rumoured to be on the way to splitsville). But for TV’s celebrity home renovation pair, Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, it couldn’t have turned out better. The power pair is among the headliners at this year’s Calgary Home + Garden show and we have them covered in this issue.

The Baeumlers star in their own home renovation show and they bring tips for working together for other couples trying to get through what can be a stressful home design process. What makes them a special couple is they work together and share a home life as well, and not many couples — married or otherwise — can navigate such tricky waters. But it can be done. Trust me, I speak from experience having worked with my wife for most of our life together, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I guess I got lucky and found the right one.

Just like in condo development, finding the right community for the right project is key to a blissful lifestyle. Take Brad Remington Homes’ Copperfield Park condos, now on its third and final development in the series, they certainly were developments that found the right location — and their buyers are the winners. Find out more about Copperfield Park III in our cover feature.

Then we have a terrific mix of inner-city and suburban condo developments that give readers the low-down on what’s available in town. On the inner-city side are Victory & Venture in Bridgeland, and The RIVER in Mission; and out in the southeast suburbs is Sandgate in Mahogany. Then we have The Armory in Currie Barracks and The Morello in Midnapore, which are kind of in-between these two worlds. What we want to say is there are a ton of choices for whatever fits your lifestyle.

We also turn our roving eye on the lake community of Auburn Bay in the southeast. This Brookfield Residential community is celebrating its 10th year and they offer a wide range of multi- and single-family products that all reflect the relaxing lake cottage living us city-dwellers all want.

It’s clear that Calgary has abounding opportunities as far as multi-family residential choices goes, just read Shelley Boettcher’s A Day In features (this time on Mission) and you’ll see that. Rounding out this issue’s offering, David Crosson talks of the importance of living rooms in establishing the character of your home (by the way, David will also be one o the headliners at the Calgary Home + Design Show. Bravo, David!). While Kathy McCormick tackles recliners and how they are essential in living room design.

It’s another jam-packed issue with more news and how-to articles that we know our readers love. You know you can count on us for more. Thanks for reading!
