Recognizing the “Potential” in Your Potential Home.

By: Shelby Adamson

When purchasing a new home it is so easy to get discouraged over cosmetic details: Smurf blue paint, gaudy brass light fixtures, orange shag carpet. We encourage you to look past those minor details to see the knock-out potential behind the home!

We know first impressions are everything. Don’t get discouraged by a drab exterior. Small renovations can completely refresh a home’s look, as well as a simple coat of paint and basic landscaping.

Boring, dim powder room not doing it for you? Make an impact with a new mirror and/or vanity. A simple upgrade to something more stylish can save the day.

The “make it or break it” room for many people is the kitchen. These renovations usually take a little more time (and money), but there’s always little things that can be done to update — painting cabinets, changing tile, switching out hardware.

Sometimes the room itself is fine, but you’re stopped in your tracks by less than stellar existing furniture. Try not to get hung up on someone else’s choices. You’ve got style! (Or if you don’t, consult with an interior designer after move-in.)

Buying a home can be a stressful, sometimes daunting process. Keep an open mind about cosmetic aspects when you’re shopping around. There is a fix for pretty much anything!

The Powder Room: The Jewel Box of Your Home

By: Shelby Adamson

Powder rooms may be small, but they offer a perfect opportunity to display your home’s personality in a big way. Use them to showcase bold colors, patterns, and textures. Here are some pieces we’d love to incorporate into our own little jewel boxes.

1. Not only is the Tubular Light beautifully sculptural, it’s also an energy saving LED.
2. The lines of this open washstand make us swoon. Perfectly on trend!
3. The organic nature of the Wabi Bone wallpaper will add a little whimsy to any space.
4. Simin Qiu turned water into art with the Swirl Faucet.
5. Kohler’s Briolette Vessel Sink is the crown gem of your updated powder room with its elegant facets.
