5 Ways to Show Love to Your Home This February

Feb 5, 2019 by

Looking to give a little love to your home this February? Below are a few ideas for giving back to the space that provides you and your family shelter and comfort all year round.

Make over one room. If you don’t have the budget (or time) to give your home a makeover, but are craving a fresh look, pick one room to retool. You can choose a small room, like a bathroom, for an easy task, or the room you spend the most time in, like the family room. Keep the bang to your bank account minimal by choosing a new accent color and picking up new curtains and accent pillows. Or, pick out one new piece of furniture or another statement piece and shape the room around it.

Give it a scrub. Choose a room, push the furniture to the center, and give every nook and cranny a good scrub. Wash the walls and ceiling, mop the floor and dust the furniture.

Break out the polish. If you really want to make your home shine, get out the furniture and floor polish. Dedicate several hours to polishing your wood furniture, your wood or tile floors, even your silver for a dazzling sparkle.

Tackle that task you hate. We all have one home maintenance task we loathe, be it polishing your woodwork or sorting through the junk drawer. Dedicate an hour or two to that task and knock it out until next year.

Bring in some greenery. Show your home (and yourself) some love by picking up some house plants and adding a pop of green to your favorite room(s). This will also help tide over your craving for the outdoors until spring.

Staged to Sell: A Fixer Upper to Show Stopper

Oct 26, 2018 by

Home stager: Justin M. Riordan, founder of Spade and Archer Design Agency, with offices in Portland, Ore., and Seattle

The home: This Portland, Ore., home was a “complete and total fixer,” Riordan says. But it wasn’t anything that some savvy staging couldn’t fix. The 3,180-square-foot home was built in 1906 and features five bedrooms, 3.5 baths. It’s listed for $ 875,000.

Riordan’s Staging Tips:

  1. When staging a home, stick with neutral rugs with little to no pattern. This will keep the the rugs from distracting from the house itself.

2. Mix styles because not everybody loves modern or Victorian or vintage. By having an eclectic mix of styles in each room, the staging can appeal a little bit to each person.

3. Use color blocking. By assigning a single color to each room, buyers will have a way to discuss each room. This house has a green bedroom, a pink bedroom, a grey bedroom, and a brown bedroom. When the buyer say, “I think Sally should have the pink bedroom,” the other buyer will understand immediately which room they were talking about.
