Home Decorating Ideas for 2018

Resort-Inspired Style - Who needs to jet off to an exotic locale to feel the vacation vibes? Make it happen at home with spa-worthy baths, vibrant island hues, rattan galore, and breezy porches that beg for a fruity umbrella drink.

Mixed Metallics - Nothing livens up a space like a bit of the unexpected. And just as mixing and matching pillows on a sofa can re-energize a living room, blending different types of metals can do the same to your kitchen and bath. The stark white palette of this room lets the stars of the space—unlacquered brass faucets and hardware, and a beveled gold mirror—really shine.

Terrazzo - Once all the rage in the ‘70s, terrazzo is now making a major comeback (Pinterest saves are up 316 percent). That’s good news for beach dwellers, since the material—made from embedding little chips of marble, quartz, granite, and even glass into concrete or resin—bears a close resemblance to a sandy beach.

That Ceiling Pops - ...

5 Ways to Shop for Furniture That Will Save You Money

1. Shop Online. What most people don’t understand is that retail stores have overhead (namely rent and staff) that they have to factor into their prices. By shopping online you generally run into one of two scenarios; a company either has a warehouse (and renting/owning warehouses costs way less than having stores in good locations) or they ship direct from the factory. Either way there are cost savings to be had, and they don’t need to inflate retail prices as much as stores do. Of course this will vary from site to site, but online is always less costly than in a store. The more you buy, the more you save.

2. Warehouse Sales. Buy on sale obviously saves money but that’s not the concept here. There are daily deal sites that clear out a lot of excess inventory out of a manufacturers warehouse and claim huge savings (which isn’t always the case; they just inflate their prices to look like you save more.) Many don’t have the patience to shop thi ...

You Must Have Professional Photography When Selling Your Home

According to the National Association of Realtors, 95% of people search for homes online before they look anywhere else. When they look online, they’ll be searching by price, bedroom, and bathroom. A certain set of listings come up from that search and that’s where they’ll pick from.

Another recent finding by the NAR says that buyers stay on listings with extra photographs longer. That gives your listing “stickiness”, which is great. The more “stickiness” you have, the more likely the buyer is to want to see the home in person. That’s why professional photography is so important.

In addition to regular indoor and outdoor photographs, we can provide drone photography and videography. It gives the consumer a better idea of how the property lays out in the neighborhood. It gives them that visceral, tactile feel you can only get with a view like this.

Another tool we use to increase “stickiness” for our listings is ou ...
