If you want to live in an Edmonton neighbourhood with the best of all worlds, you should take a look at Strathcona.

Here, it’s an easy drive downtown or to the University of Alberta and a nice walk to the North Saskatchewan River Valley or the Mill Creek Ravine.

The real estate is a mix of older, character homes in great condition (some 100 years old) and modern apartments and condominiums, high- and low-rise.

We’ve been hearing a lot about “the next decade of interior design.” That’s too far ahead for us.

Everything changes too fast. Here’s what we expect to see in 2020 that we like:

Edmonton is a magical time in the winter, with frosted windows and snow-covered peaks within reach. And December, with all the holiday festivities from Christmas to New Years Eve, is the best month to celebrate.

There’s a lot happening around town, from quaint markets to ballet performances (if you’re in doubt, check out our list of events!) but there’s one place in particular that stands out: New Year’s Eve fireworks.
