House Numbers

They’re the first thing on your home many look for, so display dazzling ones, like the solid brass Art Deco-style Mission house numbers from Atlas Homewares ($10 each, Restoration Hardware).


A Fresh Coat of Paint

Refresh your home’s colour with a coat of CIL exterior paint. This season’s leading trends (pictured from top to bottom): Hale Village, Midnite Hour, Classic Burgundy, Napa Valley and Waters ($42/gallon, Canadian Tire).


Walkway Lights

Designed by Xuclà & Alemany, the Vibia Break lamp lights up your walkway in industrial-chic style. It comes in concrete, white and oxide lacquer finishes (starting at $1,235, Lightform).



The Chilewich Shag utility mat is the perfect item for adding pattern and texture to your doorstep. Made from durable vinyl yarns, it’s an easy-care piece available in a range of styles (from $45, Motiv).



The new Grayson Venetian Bronze lock from Weiser is a Canadian exclusive, with attractive curves and angles and a hint of vintage style ($362, Home Depot).



With the True Aluminum Doorbell button from Spore, you can add that last illuminated touch to your entry. Choose from four styles to complete the look of your home ($70, Livingspace Interiors).


The wall-mountable Signo letter box from Blomus updates the mailbox with contemporary stainless steel ($469.99, Homewerx).

And don’t forget about your backyard! Enjoy it all year long with all-seasons outdoor patio furniture.
