Simplicity: A Key to Sleekness at Home

I love this article by John Hill, a contributor over at Houzz . It features this modern Toronto home that was renovated by Altius Architecture. The design offers solutions to those issues that often make the maintenance of a clean and polished home feel overwhelming. The key to low maintenance is simplicity, and the clean lines of this home certainly create a tranquil effect.

As we move into Spring, we can clean up the appearance of our yard by using native plants and grasses to provide a gorgeous landscape with little maintenance.  My goal is to find time to enjoy my yard instead of just working in it!  Shopping for plants that provide the biggest show for the smallest amount of work is a good start in the right direction.
