Curious what inspections you’ll need? Here are the most common inspections I see…
While these are some of the most common Residential Real Estate inspections, I always recommend you speak with your representative about what inspections you should get for the specific property you are planning on purchasing. There are no 2 homes alike, so we always have to do our due diligence!
I know a lot of us absolutely love decorating our home in the winter to give it that extra cozy feel. And who can blame us?! Outside we’re surrounded by snow drifts, short days, and those chilly winds that make you wish you had worn that extra sweater. But when someone says, “Winter Décor”, let’s be real, our minds jump to Christmas decorations! But what about the other 3 months of winter we still have to go through? Are you actually planning on keeping that Christmas tree up until April? I mean, there’s no judgement on my end, but you most likely won’t. So, I’ve put together a list of 5 items that are neutral but will still give you that super cozy winter vibe for the ENTIRETY of winter!
I don’t about you, but nothing says cozy to me quite like a throw! Merino wool chunky knit throws and faux-fur throws are perfect to casually throw over a chair, couch, or even your bed! It will instantly have your room feeling warm and toasty, while giving off chalet vibes. A great idea is to also have a basket with several different throws for family or guests to be able to pick their own.
We know all too well how winter can be such dreary time of year, so little sunlight and so much darkness. Mirrors will help reflect natural light around your home and just give it that extra little sparkle we could all use! Even mirrored surfaces like trays, tables, or consoles can help liven up your space with a little extra brightness.
ITEMS FROM NATURE
We’ve all seen the cozy décor that incorporates items from nature, like pinecones, birch logs, cedar or pine clippings, sticks. Take these items, and strategically place them on your mantel, hanging on your railings, or in a vase or oversized urn on a table, and transform any room into a winter wonderland. Whether you choose real or fake, these items will give you the best outdoor vibes, without bringing in the cold.
WINTER FIGURINES & ACCESSORIES
You want to think ahead when choosing your décor and find something that is seasonally neutral. Certain items like reindeer and wooden trees represent all of winter, and not simply Christmas. Throw in some ceramic and metal houses, and you have season long decorations that won’t seem out of place come January. It might be worth looking into changing those tea towels, pillow covers and table runners to really go that extra mile!
We’ve all seen the new twinkle light trend that’s been around, and for good reason! Twinkle, or fairy, lights truly give your home a magical feel like nothing else could. Turn them on and cuddle up under one of your throws and embrace your new cozy space.
Pick and choose any of these to best suit you and your space, and you’ll feel the cold melt away at the door as you walk into your warm, snug home.
