Dining Room & Living Room Redesigned by PJ & Company Staging and Interior Decorating
‘Tis the season to add festive cheer to your decor. No matter what holiday you are celebrating, we have some great tips for bringing that special glow into your homes. Happy decorating!
Shimmer & Sparkle
Silver and gold metallics will add chic style to any neutral room. We love the elegance of a mantle or dining table adorned with antique mercury glass candle holders and votives, classic white candles, touches of greenery and white amaryllis.
Although the cold winter months between Thanksgiving and New Year’s are traditionally slower for the housing market, it can actually be an ideal time for sellers to stand out among the competition. Here are the key reasons sellers shouldn’t put off listing their properties this winter:
In general, lower housing inventory means less competition for sellers to stand out and attract prospective buyers who want to get into a home quickly.
Buyers Are Ready To Purchase
Buyers who must find a home due to a change in job, retirement or family situation are motivated and won’t delay as they want to sign a contract immediately. Also if they were on the fence during the summer, they will usually make an offer in the winter to avoid an increase in mortgage rates in the new year.
Low Interest Rates
While the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is at an all-time low, economists are predicting that interest rates will soon be on the rise, and when rates ultimately rise that will deflate buyers’ purchasing power.
Higher Asking Prices
Redfin, an online real estate brokerage found that listings during Dec. through March had produced higher percentages of above-asking-price sales than listing during any months other than April and May. As the housing market rebounded, December listings produced the highest percentage of above-asking sales for the entire year – 17%.
Holidays spent with friends and family is something we should all feel grateful for. So why not make your Thanksgiving guests feel extra special by setting an unforgettably welcoming table to gather around? Whether your style is casual or formal, we have some tips for setting the tone (and table) that’s right for you.
1. Use Warm, Rich Autumn Hues
Mix and match neutral dinnerware and table linens with pops of whimsical colors of the season – oranges, reds, yellows and browns. For a more formal and cohesive look, try to limit patterns and colors to no more than two.
2. Mix and Match Styles
For a modern twist, replace the traditional table cloth with natural woven placemats or chargers paired with more formal fine china and and glassware.
3. Use Elements With Different Textures
Add depth to your centerpiece by layering natural, rustic elements such as pumpkins, gords, twigs and pinecones with a mix of shiny silver and gold metallic votives and candleholders.
4. Be Creative For A Unique Look
Have fun by using items from nature in unexpected ways — spray pumpkins with copper or gold metallic paint, place fall flowers in gourd vases, attach a simple name tag to a colorful pear, use bark edged wood for chargers, ask guests to write what they are thankful for on small cards and hang from a bouquet of branches, etc.
