Creating the right effect with bedding!

Creating the right effect with bedding!

The bedspread, comforter or quilt will be a major focal point of the bedroom, picking the right one will help create the right dramatic effect with a big splash of color or by having your bedding in gentle, soothing tones.

From a practical point of view, a bedspread will add warmth and hide dreary blankets. It will also hide the bed base and anything stored underneath.

Comforters are extremely popular, probably because they make bed making very easy and comforters can be bought in a wide range of different colors. Avoid purchasing one with a center seam and try to have a full width, equal amount of fabric on both sides. You can use your imagination and create a welcoming bedroom room by choosing a bright cheerful color or go for a calmer shade to encourage relaxation.

Pillow shams are used to lean on when you sit up on a bed. Cushions are generally more decorative, but can also be used for the same purpose. A pile of pillows and cushions makes the bed look cozy and can add a decorative touch, using soft materials and contrasting colors.





Setting Up Your Contemporary Living Room!

Setting up your contemporary living room starts with some really big influences over the past few years such as, minimalism, modern art and an open concept style. Here are a few tips & tricks to give your living room that contemporary feel.

  1. Wooden floors or floating wood-like flooring.
  2. Glass shelving, storage cubes, glass bricks or glass mirror on an end table.
  3. Eco- friendly materials. If you want a more natural environment, there are organic and eco-friendly paint in many neutral colors.
  4. Rugs and fabrics can help set the stage for your contemporary living room. Hard wood floors give a fabulous look, but they need to be comfortable too. Rugs have made a big come back in neutral colors. Some of the most popular ones are natural matting and sheepskin.
  5. Blinds and sheers are in and flounces and frills are out! Fitted wooden shades or tab topped drapes from a pole or rod are two great choices.
  6. Low coffee table is a must have. Favorite styles are those that include storage space beneath.
  7. Large plain color sofa. A big plain colored sofas are very much part of the contemporary style living room. The most stylish sofas have a boxy shape, with ultra-generous seating and short legs. Comfort is the essential antidote to all of this fashionable minimalism.
  8. Soft throws- the other concession to comfort comes from being able to drape your furniture and yourself in a beautiful soft throw. Fold the throw over the arm chair or over the back of a sofa and use them on those cooler nights.

First Impressions Are Lasting Impressions!

First impressions are lasting impressions when it comes to showing homes!

Clients are taking notes from the moment they walk through the door. Neutral colors scheme is superbly restful on the eyes. If you spend your days in an industrial environment or in the heart of a busy city, then this sort of room will be a haven of tranquility at the end of the day and seem to be favorable with buyers! A neutral color scheme does not have to omit color altogether, but the proportion of any other color used should be small enough so as not to override its basic neutrality. Color can be a magical tool. If a room has unusual proportions, color is the cheapest way to improve it without structural alterations. Light colors reflect the most light, making rooms appear bigger and brighter, while dark colors have the opposite effect.

Tips on items to sell or get rid!!

Tips on items to consider to sell or to get rid! There will be many showings on your beautiful home, these 3 tips will make a world of difference!

  1. Extra furniture. Too much odd and ends of furniture can make a home look smaller and takes away from the overall appearance.
  2. Extra Cloths. Clothes that are not in drawers or neatly hung in closets. Having a lot of extra cloths in bins and baskets, makes the house appear like it doesn’t have sufficient amount of closet space.
  3. Abundance amount of toys. Toys scattered through out the home, makes it hard for the potential buys to see the floors, walls and windows.

Decluttering your clutter! Clutter can be everything. It’s the mail that arrives in the morning, note pads, glasses, newspapers, extra cloths, shoes and boots. Try to clear the morning clutter when you leave a room. A bedside magazine rack will help or mount bookshelves on the wall. Also matching boxes, in a different range of sizes-choose leather, wicker or clear plastic to help keep things in their temporary resting place. Decluttering is all about learning to be organized and stylish at the same time!teen girls bedroom designs ideas1

Condition and Location are two big factors!

Condition and location is a big factor when selling your home! If your house isn’t selling because of some problem with its condition, take heart. You’re far better off than the poor soul who’s house won’t sell because of location. You can’t change the location, but you can change condition. Often minor cosmetic changes such as paint, fixing doors, handles and planting a few shrubs can make a world of difference! Discover the issues and correct them and let your realtor know that you are ready for showings.  You should be well on your way towards selling your home!!

Work on the “curb appeal” of your home to get results! Real estate agents recognize a fact of life when dealing with buyers: ” First impressions count the most.” If your house looks beautiful when potential buyers drive up and first see it, those buyers are going to be favorably inclined towards the house, even if it’s not perfect on the inside. This is called “curb appeal”.
