Home Design Trends

There are plenty of reasons to look forward to 2021, especially when it comes to the home. After a year that guided many of us to spend more time at home, the new year is an opportunity to bring comfort and creativity to our living spaces. From calming room ideas to stylish (and smart) approaches to home office design, we are predicting 5 of the biggest interior design trends for 2021.

Grandmillennial Grandeur

“Grandmillennial” (modern takes on granny chic) style might be a surprising trend on the surface (it’s the exact opposite of sleek, modern minimalism) – but it actually fits in well with what we’re currently craving in our homes. Cozy details a la grandma’s house, pretty florals, and elegance definitely have a place in the 2021 design landscape.

Plenty of Plants

It seems like 2020 was the year that many of us went back to the basics (hello, green thumbs) and chances are that these primal habits will continue to grow in 2021 – especially when it comes to indoor plants. Incorporating house plants into your decor can help refresh your air and brighten your mood.

Multi-Functional Spaces

This past year has made many of us rethink how we use our rooms. When spending more time at home, it makes less sense to dedicate whole rooms to just one purpose – especially in smaller spaces. With this is mind, we’re betting that we’ll see creative storage and design solutions to help dining room, living rooms, and bedrooms double up as home offices and workspaces. 

Walls on the Wild Side

When it come to interior design trends, we tend to focus a lot on what’s between our walls, but what about what’s on the walls themselves? While paint is always popular, textured, bold, and unusual finishes like floral wallpaper fabric upholstery or even a living wall can add a fresh feel to our spaces in the year to come.

Earthy Tones

You’ve probably picked up on one of the overarching themes for home decor in the year to come: a return to nature and earthy inspiration. This feeling extends to color trends, as warm, comforting color palettes (think wine reds, golden yellows, and sage greens) take precedence.

Why Hire a Realtor?

Good Morning!! 

I hope everyone is having a great week! Have you ever really thought about what a Realtor does? A lot of people think we just unlock and show houses,  but there is so much more that a true, professional Realtor does? I could think of 100 reasons why you should hire a professional Realtor, but below are my top 5 reasons!  

  • Code of Ethics – You would only hope that everyone would be honest during a real estate transactions. Realtors who belong to the National Association of Realtors, have agreed to abide by 17 rules to promote honesty and fairness. 
  • Insider Information – Full time Realtors work in this field everyday. We have the most up-to-date information and often know of things happening before anyone else does. 
  • Marketing Masters – Have you seen my marketing plan? (professional photography, 3-D tours, website, professional signage and so much more) Call me and let’s chat! 
  • Negotiators – For sellers the key is to get top dollar for your home. For buyers the key to get a good deal within the current market conditions. With 20+ years of experience I have helped buyers and sellers accomplish their goals!  
  • Real Estate Law – Realtors are constantly taking continuing education courses and keeping up with the latest real estate laws to protect YOU.
