Color of the Year

For those who love soft, neutral colors, four major paint brands have predicted that off-white hues will be the color trend of 2016: Benjamin Moore, Behr, Sherwin-Williams, Gladden. Although some may shy away from white due to it appearing cold or sterile, when done well, off-white helps lighten a room and can be used generously in a room instead of as a small accent. Additionally, off-white’s neutrality allows it to be paired with essentially any other color, whether that’s for contrast in paint accents, furniture, or highlight architectural details.

Warm or cold, neutral or bold, off-white hues will allow many to experiment with colors to their hearts’ content.

Can I take it with me? That may be a recurring question as you get ready to sell your home. Sellers and buyers are often confused about what should stay or go during a real estate transaction—resulting in a lot of tension during negotiations.

According to the National Association of Realtors, any fixtures in your home are included in the sale and personal property is not. Understanding the difference between the two can sometimes be tricky.

TO-DOs: 
Your March Home Checklist

March can be unpredictable when it comes to the weather, but no matter what Mother Nature is doing outside your window, it’s natural to crave a fresh start this time of year. The first official day of spring is March 20, so usher in the new season with a bit of spring cleaning, fresh flowers and—if you can get outdoors—a little dirt under your fingernails.

  • Plant a tree
  • Inspect your home's exterior
  • Spring-clean the kitchen
  • Clean slipcovers and soft furnishings
  • Get ready for tax time
  • Tidy the entryway
  • Clean up patio furniture
  • Tune up lawn and garden tools
  • Make a garden plan
