When we heard that one of our Robinson Landing homeowners had founded the ALX Dog Walk to not only raise awareness about sustainable living and reducing plastic use, but also to raise funds to beautify the City of Alexandria and protect its environment, we knew we wanted to learn more and support her efforts. EYA proudly sponsored the 2022 inaugural dog walk, and we’re excited to sponsor the second annual walk on April 29, 2023 in Oronoco Bay Park in Old Town Alexandria (you can register here). And, we have been so impressed with her work that we wanted to share her story. We hope you enjoy the following Q&A with Robinson Landing resident and ALX Dog Walk executive director, Julie Chapman, to hear about her work and learn how you and your pup can participate in this year's walk!
Whether you’re moving into your first home or just looking to refresh your furnishings, there are many unique and creative ways to switch up your current home decor to feel fresh in the new year without breaking the bank. Read on for an updated post featuring a Q&A with one of our favorite designers, Holly Polgreen, President and Co-founder of Carlyn & Company Interiors + Design, for the best tips on how to repurpose, reorganize, and redesign your home decor.
As we welcome a New Year at the stroke of midnight on December 31st, many of us see the calendar starting again as a chance to instill our own new beginnings. An annual time to reassess and realign our goals, it’s also a chance to recharge, reset, and reflect on our habits, mindsets, and lifestyle. At the heart of most resolutions lists is a hope to find an overall healthier and happier lifestyle. Often this can be achieved by incorporating and practicing wellness in our daily lives. Hygge (pronounced hue-gah), a Danish inspired design trend, aims to do just that. This 18th century concept focuses on enjoying life’s simplest pleasures through contentment, warmth, and togetherness.

At EYA, we take great pride in not only creating beautiful living spaces, but also designing neighborhoods that bring people together. This may be done in various ways from creating new parks and playgrounds where kids can meet new friends to designing welcoming front porches where neighbors can greet and get to know each other. For many, being part of a community is an important factor in wellbeing and happiness and neighborhood communities are among the most important ways that people find lasting personal connections. What's it like to live in an EYA neighborhood? Watch the video below to hear from our homeowners about how they not only found a new home, but a new community.
When searching for a new home, many factors influence where and how you want to live—from location and price, to choosing the features that are important to you now, and in the future. One feature that can truly transform a home and elevate your lifestyle (pun intended!) is an in-home private elevator, offering added convenience, safety, and more years to enjoy your home. Watch the video below to hear EYA homeowners explain why an in-home elevator is important for them and learn more about the benefits this feature can offer.
