2015 was the year of overused décor trends that are no longer being recommended to ring in the new year:

  • antlers and animal heads
  • writing on the walls
  • minimalist chic
  • skull accessories
  • rustic metal lettering

Home design experts advise stagers and sellers to adopt trends carefully.  While adding a focal point is a nice idea, you don’t want the “look” to be so specific or odd that it goes out of date quickly. Tastefully done accent walls or interesting pieces of furniture can add interest without going down the “strange and soon-to-be outdated” path.

For 2016, one of the biggest developments is color! Pantone recently released its 2016 Spring Fashion Color Report with its list of on-trend colors you’ll be seeing in clothing, home furnishings and accessories.

Here are Pantone’s Top 10 Colors for Spring:

  1. Rose Quartz (light pink)
  2. Peach Echo (deep peach)
  3. Serenity (lighter blue)
  4. Snorkel Blue (ocean blue)
  5. Buttercup (bright yellow)
  6. Limpet Shell (aqua)
  7. Lilac Gray
  8. Fiesta (red)
  9. Iced Coffee
  10. Green Flash (bright green)

Just remember when you choose a trending color – or pattern or theme – don’t go overboard. Subtlety and restraint will help keep the trend from looking outdated before the paint dries!

Are you considering the pros and cons of a new home versus a used home? The pros pretty much outweigh the cons, and here’s a list of ten reasons why!

  1. You can make a truly fresh start in a brand new home! No one else has ever lived there… it’s all yours!
  1. Everything is all new, and under warranty! Your new home, and the products that comprise it, are brand-new and under warranty.
  1. New homes are designed to be low maintenance, yet high style. They’re made of cutting-edge building products that require less care and maintenance.
  1. Nothing beats that “New Home” feeling. You could replace all of the windows in a resale home. And add insulation, and replace outdated systems. But why bother? Buy a brand new, all-you home!
  1. You can have it your way. One of the benefits of buying a brand new home is customization. Pick your cabinets, flooring, carpets, light fixtures, etc. to fit your lifestyle.
  1. New homes have a longer life expectancy than existing homes, giving them a longer period of time to appreciate in value.
  1. Many new homes offer energy-efficient windows and appliances, energy-conserving, long-lasting LED lighting and more… all features that decrease the your costs and carbon footprint.
  1. Safety is a concern for any homeowner, whether buying new or old. But, when you buy a new home, you save yourself some worry since everything is brand new and environmentally friendly.
  1. Today’s new homes are designed to fit the way you live, with convenient features like walk-in closets, kitchen pantries, finished basements, attics with storage… and plenty of room to grow. With resale homes, you may find that space is limited.
  1. Buying a brand new home means that it’s yours from day one. It’s your home, and it reflects your family, your style and your taste.
