5 Ways to use Pantone’s Color of the Year

Related image

For the past 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced interior design, fashion and other creative industries. This year’s color is called Living Coral, an orange-pink hue that symbolizes optimism and lightheartedness.

Try one of these ideas for using Living Coral in your home:

Paint your front door. Experts say a colorful door boosts curb appeal, plus it’s a chic, inviting way to welcome your friends and family.

Style a nursery. Bright but calming, Living Coral makes a cheery addition to a nursery. Try pairing it with light pink, deep blue or eucalyptus green.

Use it as an accent. Energize your living room with a throw blanket or a few decorative pillows, or make your entryway pop with a new piece of art.

Warm up the kitchen. The director of design at Master Brand Cabinets says this hue “breathes life” into kitchens. Try painting the kitchen island, an accent wall or the inside of glass-front cabinetry in Living Coral.

Go bold. Living Coral can be the “star of the room,” says House Beautiful. Try painting built-in shelves, or make a coral couch or chair the focal point. Tone it down by adding neutral colors and pieces made of wood, brass or marble.

Weighing The Benefits and Risks Of Prefabricated Homes

Image result for prefab house

Prefabricated or prefab homes are gaining interest among some segments of the population. Made in a factory and assembled on site, these homes are far more stylish and accessible than most people expect. Of course, there are benefits and risks associated with prefab homes. Here are a few points to consider:

Cost
While prefab materials will likely cost less than a traditionally built house, the costs associated with the property could prove more expensive in some cases. Plumbing, excavation, foundation work, and electrical costs add up quickly. To save your hard-earned dollars, talk to your agent about property that already has some of these checked off the list.

Sustainability
Prefabricated homes are often considered more environmentally friendly than traditionally built homes. The construction process produces far less waste than a typical build and prefab homes are known to be more energy-efficient.

Availability
The costs and risks associated with purchasing and building a new prefabricated home may be dodged by purchasing one that has previously been owned. Ask your real estate agent for help locating resale prefab homes that can deliver on the cost and efficiency perks without the hassle of purchasing from the factory.

Style
As prefab homes become more popular, they are also becoming more fashionable. Interior spaces are designed intelligently and are typically less architecturally complex. Many have a sleek, modern feel and, as a bonus, are very sustainable and low-maintenance.

Quality
Many traditionally built homes contain materials which have been exposed to the elements. This means precipitation, temperature changes and humidity can all impact the quality of the materials. Because prefab housing materials are factory-made, they are protected until they are ready to assemble. On the flip side, many prospective home buyers view prefab homes to be of inferior quality, which can affect future resale potential.

Here is how to spot the next hot neighborhood

Image result for cool neighborhood

Location, location, location
Location is one of the most important elements – if not the most important element – to consider in a home search. While it’s easy to find markets that are already buzzing, how can you spot up-and-coming neighborhoods?

Uptick in businesses
Take note when chic hotels, stylish boutiques and trendy restaurants begin to emerge in the surrounding areas. If a neighborhood is creating a higher demand for new venues, then its property values are likely to soar.

Fixer-upper potential
Neighborhoods that may be considered past their prime but offer unique architecture and structural integrity are prime real estate opportunities. Victorian, Tudor and Spanish-style older homes are popular, especially among millennials and first-time home buyers who are willing to invest in a home that requires a little extra love, attention and elbow grease.

Fast-selling properties
As homes begin to spend less and less time on the market, it’s a good sign that the neighborhood is increasing in popularity. Sometimes, it only takes a few buyers taking an interest in a neighborhood before other buyers take note and begin to see its potential for future growth.
