When designing a home, paying extra attention to details is imperative and will save you time and money down the road. Look closely at this carpet, it's a busy pattern but across a large space, it could create a very balanced and calming environment. It's definitely one, that because of the pattern, is best used in a large space with a definitive starting and stopping point. Notice how it runs in one direction down the stairs and the opposite direction across the rest of the space. There's definitely no definitive starting or stopping place and with it being run in different directions, it creates the look of it being two different patterns. What do you think...should this carpet have been run in same direction down the stairs as the rest of the…

Most sellers believe that springtime is the best time to sell a home...that is NOT always the case. Selling your home in the winter actually has quite a few advantages. The #1 reason for listing your home in the winter is LESS COMPETITION! If most sellers actually listed their home in the spring, the housing market would be flooded. Typically during the winter months, there is less competition and the housing supply shrinks, limiting buyers' choices. The National Association of Realtors suggest that the "sweet spot" for listing your home is between November and February. According to David Ramsey, home sales have increased from November to December an average of 4.5% over the last three winters. "As the temperatures start to heat up in the spring, so…

Have you noticed a change in interior and exterior paint choices lately? Leading paint experts are saying that 2019 will be reminiscent of the 1970's in terms of paint trends. We have started seeing this change in several of the new model homes we recently toured. White cabinetry, that we have been seeing for several years, was replaced with more muted (pickled) wood tones or darker (painted) jewel tones. The bathrooms had darker vanities and patterned tile, and accent walls were duly noted. While white walls and white kitchens are still popular, we are seeing designers add caramel or cognac leather furniture, reclaimed wood accent tables, and tons of tactile fabric pillows and throws in jewel tones, allowing our eyes to "land" in the space. The Pantone…

Kitchen organization has become a huge industry with pull-out spice cabinets, drawers, garbage bins, divided cabinets for baking sheets, and then you have all the different organizers that you can add to the inside of your cabinets, like lid organizers and tiered spice racks, risers for plates, hooks for mugs or measuring cups, and lazy susans for those items that get lost behind more frequently used items. There's Command hooks and a million different labels for canisters, magnetic strips for knives, etc...but the one kitchen organizer that has some homeowners on the fence, is the pot rack. Some say they are great for being able to reach your pots and pans without digging way back in a cabinet, or that they create a "lived in" feel (add warmth); others…
