As a Realtor, it is imperative that I can educate my sellers and buyers on what is trending and one of the perks of my job is staying abreast of interior design tips, decorating trends, and spacial design! Why is this so important? It can often times set your home apart from another or in the perfect world, create such a desire for your home that you end up having to choose between multiple offers and at the end of the day that means more money in your pocket! According to NAR (National Association of Realtors), research shows that homes that are updated sell 7x faster and for significantly more money than homes that are not! So, staying on top of these trends can help you maximize the return on your profit and if nothing else, create a modern and homie living space that works for you!

I came across this article while at the salon the other day and was excited to see that we are straying away from the cold colors and spaces we have been so accustomed to for the last few years and heading in a  direction of warmth and approachability! I cannot tell you how many times I have showed a home and  if a buyer remarks that "it feels so homie" they are usually getting some emotional string pulled in the direction of writing an offer!

Buyers want to walk into a space that is free of clutter, sets a mood, and makes them feel as though they could easily live there.  The trending design tips for 2019 embrace that same feeling! The focus is on soft white color palettes that create an inviting space, wood finishes and accents that tie the calm feelings, airiness, and openness  of nature, gunmetal and pewter hardware which is less harsh than black or gold, and that's just to name a few.  Incorporating one or several of these design tips into your 2019 updates can help sell your home faster and for more money....and of course that is the goal of any prospective seller!
