Tranquil and technicolor: Interior design trends for 2019

This year, interior design is finding inspiration in wellness trends, plus throwing it back to the ’70s. Choose your look:

Intentional, sustainable design: Interior designers are leaning toward sustainability by using natural, reclaimed and upcycled materials. Look for rattan, linen and bamboo to be popular this year.

Houseplants continue to be trendy, and their health benefits appeal to wellness-conscious consumers. Wellness is also being reflected through calming, earthy colors such as terracotta, apricot and sage green.

“These are colors that ‘sit back,’ are soft and quietly composed,” says HomesToLove.com.au.

Bold, groovy style: In contrast to those soothing tones, you’ll also see vibrant, ’70s-inspired colors – think bright orange and yellow – in decorations and furniture. The rest of the primary color wheel is growing in popularity, too.

“From iridescent to full-out rainbow schemes, the technicolor palette has made major strides in recent years,” says Domino.com.

Curved couches and chairs are another ’70s throwback, says ElleDecor.com. According to TrendesignBook.com, bold floral prints on wallpaper as well as large geometric patterns for tile and statement ceilings will be popular choices this year, as a nod to the Art Deco era.

PORTLAND/METRO MOST CURRENT REAL ESTATE STATS & NUMBERS

October Residential Highlights

October brought some cooling to real estate activity in the Portland metro area, but pending sales were still on the rise this was the strongest October for pending sales in the area since October 2005. Inventory in the Portland metro area decreased slightly in October to 1.8 months. Remember 6 months is considered a balanced market. Anything under 6 months is considered a sellers’ market and above 6 months is considered a buyers’ market. We are in a STRONG sellers’ market right now. We have actually been in a sellers’ market for well over 3 years.

Total market time in holding steady at 46 days (Time it takes to get an accepted offer on your home).

Sale Prices and the Future of Real Estate

Prices continue to rise. The median sale price rose a whopping 7.0% for all areas (All neighborhoods are different-for your call, email or text me).

The interest rates are still very low making it affordable to purchase even though the prices are rising. The economic forecasts I have heard say we are in in for another year of increased prices!

This is very good news people! If you are waiting to make a more or wished you would of done it before the crash NOW is the time! Call, email, or text me for information on selling or buying residential property. You’ll be glad you did!

BASIC LAW OF ECONOMICS IN REAL ESTATE.

supply and demand

It’s a basic law of economics: Demand goes up. Supply goes down. Prices rise.
Nationally, that’s happening right now. With normal population increases and an improving economy, demand is growing, and supply is tight in many areas.

Additionally, despite analysts’ predictions, interest rates have held at relatively low levels. Low rates keep home payments more affordable.

What might this mean for you?

• If you’re in the process of buying or selling, you’re probably in a good spot. Many sellers are seeing higher bids, and many buyers can afford to make them because of currently low rates.
• If you’re planning to stay in the home you now own, it’s likely your home value is growing. More equity and the possibility of refinancing at today’s rates create a comforting combination that’s tough to beat.

If you are looking to buy or sell real estate give me a call. I’m here to help.

YOUR HOME-FALL DECOR

Fall Pumpkin

DECORATING FOR FALL

Can you believe that the first day of fall was September 23rd, 2015?

My goodness, time flies. Since fall is upon us, this might mean that your home is in need of some fall decor updates. Fall provides the opportunity to update your decor with deep bolder colors and unique accents. Below are some tips you might want to incorporate into your fall home decor:

  • Vintage Finds – try browsing your local thrift shop to find unique and often times, affordable goods. Not only can vintage finds add unique touches to your decor, it is also a great way to be eco-friendly because you are recycling old items as opposed to purchasing new ones.
  • Neutrals – neutral colors can add a warm and elegant look to any room. Try incorporating neutrals with a pop of color for contrast.
  • Warm Wood – warm wood can give your home a vintage and rustic feel. If you are looking for a rustic touch, try adding some wood accent to your decor.
  • Bold Accent Colors – try decorating with deep accent colors like yellows, blues and orange. When pairing neutral colors with these bold accents, it can give a room a burst of personality and charm.
  • Textures and Patterns – when done subtly, a bold texture and/or pattern can give a room tenacity without being overbearing. Try adding unique, contrasting, yet complimentary textures and patterns to your rooms to add a hint of creativity and personality.
