2016 Home Must Haves

As we are preparing for the holidays and the new year, we are trying to figure out what the new year will bring. New homes, new buyers, new trends, and new adventures await us! Here are some of the home must haves we think will be headed our way for 2016:

Dreamy spa-inspired bathrooms --> http://hg.tv/14ci3:

Spa like bathrooms! A getaway from the outside world or maybe even a getaway from the rest of the chores in the home. We see 2016 home buyers wanting a relaxing bathroom with light neutrals and luxury items.

light colored wood and white:

We think the bright white kitchen will still be in, but there will be a movement towards natural wood. It stays in the nice bright family but brings in a warmth that a kitchen deserves.

The work from home trend is still on the rise! We see the importance of a home office rising and replacing a formal living room. It seems like home buyers are more interested in using every square footage of the home to the best of their abilities!

A DIY half wall bookcase @ThriftyDecorChick:

Open floor plans have been all the rage, but we see something different. We are predicting that 2016 will be a happy balance of open and walls. Not every room needs to be open, and there’s something comfortable about a dedicated space.

A pale blue door brightens this home's facade. More inexpensive ways to add curb appeal: http://www.bhg.com/home-improvement/exteriors/curb-appeal/curb-appeal-on-a-dime/?socsrc=bhgpin051513palebluedoor=2:

Last but not least, a higher expectation of curb appeal. Home maintenance is important and taking care of what we invest our money in is key. We also are coming into the generation that is coming back to the roots of taking care of neighbors and being close to those we surround ourselves with. Curb appeal helps the entire neighborhood.

What do you think 2016 will bring for new homeowners?

Fall Yard Maintenance

Keeping your house maintained in the fall may seem like a big chore, but it doesn’t take much to keep your curb appeal up and maintained.

There is any easy way to clean up this season that will make your fall check list dwindle.

How to Compost: Getting Started | HGTV Gardens:

Before you worry about how much work it’s going to be to get this started, it’s simple! You can purchase a compost bin for as little as $25 and it’s easy to get started.

Pick up the twigs and miscellaneous pieces in your hard and put them at the bottom of the compost.

Your beds will need to be refreshed and remulched to keep it from molding and protecting it from the harsh winter weather. Rake out that top layer of rough soil and put it on top of the branches in your compost.

Rake up the leaves and add those to the compost pile next.

Add to the curb appeal of your house -- and increase its value -- with these easy exterior improvements. Welcome autumn in all its glory with a fall-themed door wreath. This ready-made decoration brings together a colorful mix of faux flowers, leaves, and other signs of the season. Best of all, it’s reusable year after year. Transform a slab and steps with the high-end look of stone. Then update a basic mailbox with gleaming copper spray paint.:

Cut the grass one last time close to the ground and put the trimmings in the compost pile. All your yard work is then done and you don’t have bags sitting in your front yard that you’ll need to figure out how to dispose of and when that pile has composted, you can use it for fresh soil later.

Don’t let fall yard work keep your from maintaining your yard. It can be simple!

Staging for Fall

We are just around the corner from cool breezes, light weight sweaters, blankets, and boots! More importantly we are right around the corner from fall staging. Do you know what the fall trends are this year? Do you know what buyers are looking for to keep them cozy?

Happy first day of autumn! Today I am joining the fall tour hosted by Lindsay from White Buffalo Styling Co. I just had the privilege of seeing Lindsay at a BHG event in NYC last week.

It doesn’t have to scream orange! Simple call touches do the trick,

For a quick fall update, turn a cast-off accessory into a piece of decor. Salvage from your closet a good-condition scarf you don't wear often (or check thrift stores for one) in a shade that coordinates with your interior, then simply drape the scarf as you would a runner. #autumn #fall: For a quick fall update, turn a cast-off accessory into a piece of decor.

The fireplace should be a center of attention if there is one.
