What is Cottagecore Home Decor?

Home Decor TrendsOur real estate agents know that a beautifully decorated home is inviting to potential buyers. If you're searching for options to decorate your home's spaces, one trend that you'll encounter is known as cottagecore, which adds a woodsy and cozy feel to your home's interior. Consider this trend for your home with these interior design tips. 

Cottagecore Explained

Cottagecore is an increasingly popular style of home decor that focuses on creating a cozy environment with high-quality, environmentally focused materials. It's similar to hygge, a Danish decor trend that focuses on creating a comfortable space that utilizes multiple cozy elements. 

The look of cottagecore includes soft hues, gorgeous floral prints, string lights, and soft area lighting, and authentic vintage or vintage-inspired pieces. Your end result is a romantic space that incorporates elements from nature. While a room decorated in a cottagecore style may remind you of a rustic cabin or a lovely beachside cottage, this decor works well in any area, including homes in the city or suburbs. 

While minimalism isn't the sole focus of cottagecore, there are minimalistic elements. With cottagecore, less is more, especially since this decor movement values sustainability.

Instead of five cheap throw blankets, invest in one or two durable throws that you adore and are of superior quality. When buyers are searching for Raleigh homes for sale, homes that embrace cottagecore are less likely to be filled with distracting clutter. 

Adding Cottagecore Decor into Your Home 

If you're ready to use cottagecore design trends in your home, you don't have to invest a lot of time or money to get started. Start with fresh flowers. Since floral prints are one of the main tenets of cottagecore, an arrangement of flowers instantly adds a romantic, nature-inspired vibe. 

Then, add soft lighting to the space. A few strands of string lights are an affordable option, or you might opt to add candles. When using candles, stick with nature-inspired scents that will coordinate well with the decor. 

Check your cabinets for porcelain dishes, etched glasses, and mason jars. Display your favorite pieces on a floating shelf or bookcase.

The thrift store is an excellent spot to find vintage-inspired or even authentic vintage items for your decor. Look for paintings or prints that feature nature scenes. A glass vase or wood-framed mirror are other pieces that work well in almost any home. 

Perhaps you're ready to make more significant renovations to your home, so it adheres to the cottagecore look. Look for flooring that mimics the appearance of wood. While hardwood floors are one alternative, engineered wood floors are another durable, budget-friendly alternative that recreates the look of wood.

Or, if you're renovating a space where you prefer to use tile, check out ceramic tiles that maintain a wood appearance. Search for tiles with a low-gloss finish, and avoid intricate designs. The goal is to produce a simple, classic look.

Movie Night: Try These Home Theater Improvements

Raleigh Home Theater

Whether you enjoy binge-watching your favorite shows or like to host at-home movie nights, a home theater system is an excellent addition to your home. Our real estate agents find that a home theater system is also appealing to potential homebuyers and helps define your home's unused spaces. Here are a few ways you can take your home theater to the next level.

  1. Select the Right Space
    When deciding where to place your home theater, opt for a room that's removed from the hustle and bustle of your household. This should be a space that's used only for viewing media. Ideally, you should be able to close the room off from the rest of the household when it's time to catch a movie to minimize noise and light pollution. 
  1. Place Your TV or Screen the Correct Distance from Your Seating
    For the best viewing experience, your TV or screen should be the proper distance from your home theater's seating. If your space has a TV, multiply the length of the screen's diagonal size by 1.5 to 2.5 to know where to place the seats. For example, assume you have a 60-inch TV. This means that you'll place your seats anywhere from 90 inches to 150 inches from the screen. However, if you have a projector in your home theater, multiply the width of the screen by 2 to 5 to figure out your seat placement. This makes it comfortable for you to see the whole screen. 
  1. Paint Your Walls a Dark Hue
    Your home theater is the perfect place to embrace a dark color for your walls. Lighter colors can reflect light in the room and cause a glare. Dark hues will absorb light and help you better control the lighting conditions in the room. Raleigh homes for sale with a fresh coat of paint will also show better with prospective buyers. 
  1. Invest in a Home Audio System
    Even top-notch TVs frequently have less than stellar sound quality. Add to your viewing experience by investing in a home audio system. This will ensure that the sound tones are crisp and clear. For a smaller space, a soundbar may be sufficient. You don't want to overwhelm the room with too much sound. If you have a larger home theater room, a surround sound system is an excellent choice for an immersive viewing experience.
  1. Keep Decorative Items Away from Your Screen
    Movie posters and souvenirs are cool, but they can distract you or your guests when you're watching a movie. Instead, position them so that they're behind your seating. 
  1. Opt for Tiered Seating
    Tiered seating is the gold standard for home theaters because it prevents someone from inadvertently obscuring the view of the person behind them. Fortunately, tiered seating doesn't have to be expensive. You can add platforms to your seats to raise them a few inches. Or, you might opt to add a few cozy floor seats; these are often popular with kids who like a little extra space to fidget during a movie.

What Kind of Christmas Tree is Best For Your Home?

Raleigh Christmas Trees

With the holiday season in full swing, it's time to select a Christmas tree for your home. A real Christmas tree is a charming option that instantly lends a festive touch to your space. Our real estate agents know that a home with gorgeous decorations appeals to potential buyers. 

Not only does a real Christmas tree fill your home with the seasonal smell of pine, but it helps support the local businesses who grew, transported, and sold the tree. Here are some guidelines to follow to help you pick the best Christmas tree for your home. 

  1. Know Your Options
    There are a few different varieties of trees commonly sold as Christmas trees. The Balsam Fir is a popular choice in many households; this variety is the most fragrant alternative, and it only sheds a small number of its needles. If you have lots of space and want a full Christmas tree, consider a Douglas Fir. The Douglas Fir boasts a lovely pyramid shape and soft needles. Make sure that you're ultra committed to watering your tree, as the Douglas Fir requires more water. Maybe you like to add a lot of ornaments to your tree. The Frasier Fir is preferred for it's stiff, strong branches capable of holding a tree full of decorations. If a green tree doesn't quite suit your aesthetics, check out the Colorado Blue Spruce. Its needles are a bluish-silvery hue and look fantastic in a room adorned with winter-themed decor. The Eastern White Pine is a great choice if you're sensitive to smells and prefer a tree with minimal fragrance. However, it also has soft needles that aren't capable of supporting many ornaments and decorations.
  1. Measure the Space Where You Plan to Put the Tree
    Your next step is to measure the space where you plan to set up the tree. When choosing your tree's home, make sure that it's away from any heat sources (like a radiator or open window) or open flames (such as a fireplace or candle display). Once you've selected your spot, measure the height (leaving room at the bottom for the tree holder and at the top for the tree topper), width, and depth. Jot these measurements down and take them with you so you can ensure that any potential trees are a suitable size. If you're adding your home to the inventory of Raleigh homes for sale, make sure that you don't overcrowd the space. Having too much decor or furnishings in one area will actually make the room appear small. 
  1. Understand What to Look for at the Tree Lot
    Besides meeting your preferences for size and variety, there are some other requirements your tree should meet. Look for a tree with bright, shiny needles; steer clear of trees that have brown, dull needles. Give the branches a shake. If a lot of needles fall off, move onto the next tree. Take a few of the needles in your hands and crush them. They should have a fragrant, fresh smell. 
  1. Keep Your Tree Hydrated
    Regardless of which type of Christmas tree you choose, ample hydration will ensure that it looks amazing the entire season. Once you get your tree home, give it plenty of water, and check the water frequently. Most trees are a little dehydrated when you get them home and will initially use more water until they can stabilize their water levels.

7 Ways to Put a Spare Bedroom to Use

Spare Bedroom Ideas

A spare bedroom can come in handy for overnight guests, but if this is a rare occurrence in your home, the space is often better utilized for everyday use. The extra room can be transformed in many different ways to suit your family's needs.

Our real estate agents suggest the following 7 ways to put a spare bedroom to use and to make it your favorite space in your home:

  1. Mudroom
    A spare bedroom that's near the front door can be utilized as a mudroom-like storage space. You'll need shelving and cubbies to store shoes, kids' backpacks, and other items. Hooks for coats and jackets will also be needed, and you can finish off the space with bench topped with a padded cushion so you can sit on it to take your shoes on or off.

  2. Reading Area
    A quiet room where you can get away from it all and curl up with a good book may be just the thing if you like to read. Add some shelving, a few comfortable chairs, some artwork, and cozy accessories like throw pillows or blankets, and you'll have the basics taken care of. You can also choose appropriate artwork if you'd like to spruce up the room, and good lighting is a must so you can see to read without any difficulty.

  3. Dressing Room
    Converting a spare bedroom into a dressing room gives you the space to store your clothing, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories neatly, as well as giving you a roomy space to get dressed. Best of all, you can emphasize the type of storage you need the most. So if you're into shoes, for example, pull out shoe racks may be a priority for you. Also include features like shelving, seating, a mirror that reflects you from head to toe, and closet accessories to store belts, scarves, and more.

  4. Yoga Room
    If you're into yoga but usually end up pulling your mat out into a family living area, a spare bedroom can be converted into a quiet, soothing space to practice some moves. Decorate it in soothing tones with warm lighting and create your own yoga studio with just a mat or add some extras like yoga straps or bolsters. And to practice moves safely, make sure the room is large enough to keep you safely away from any walls or furniture.

  5. Study Room
    If you have school-age kids, why not provide them with a quiet space to work in? This also frees up space in their bedrooms and keeps the kitchen table cleared off. Good lighting is key when you're creating a study room, as are plenty of desk space and all the tools and supplies they'll need.

  6. Home Theater
    Home theaters are popular spots to gather and spend time with your family at home while watching a movie. Invest in comfortable seating and a projector or large TV, and if you'd like, add some touches like a popcorn machine or framed movie posters.

  7. Sewing or Craft Room
    Sewing and crafts can take up a lot of space and leave you struggling to take your supplies out and put them away each time you want to use them. A dedicated sewing or craft studio lets you have storage units and boxes or baskets that suit your individual needs and large tables, bolts of fabric, or other supplies ready to use when you need them.

Contact us to look at Raleigh homes for sale. We'll help you find a home that has extra features you'd love to have, such as a spare bedroom.

Interior Design Trends You Should Avoid When Selling Your Home

Interior Design TrendsOne of the best parts of moving into a new place is adding the touches that make it a home. Homebuyers look at houses imagining that the south-facing window will be perfect for their favorite houseplants and trying to decide which cozy spot is the right one for a pair of armchairs. The process of selling your home requires that you leave room in buyers' imaginations for their aspirations, and there are some interior design trends that can crowd other ideas out. Our estate agents love seeing the personality a home can show, but we also love seeing a home ready for its next act. When getting your home ready to list, here are some interior design trends you should consider avoiding. 

  1. Bold Wallpaper
    Bold patterns in wallpaper are a perennial trend; they've cycled through interior design trends since the Victorian era. But whether you have classic cabbage roses or geometric figures, bold wallpaper can overpower a home buyer's attempt to see the potential in a place. If said wallpaper is new, it can prompt concerns about what lay behind the bright colors and bold designs. Removing wallpaper and applying paint can be a great DIY job for a long weekend, but if your wallpaper dates from before 1970, ask a pro about what may lay under the surface. 

  2. Fixing Your Fixtures 
    Brass fixtures have been on trend recently, but like many quirky retro looks, their moment is brief. Oil-rubbed bronze and brushed nickel are coming into vogue. Chrome finishes are a practical option for high-contact surfaces, as chrome is easy to clean. You can swap out most fixtures in an afternoon with a few basic tools. Your fixture finishes don't have to be uniform throughout your home but try to keep to no more than three finishes. 

  3. Tired of Tile 
    Tiled countertops are no longer as popular as they used to be, as they can be tough to clean and make for less than ideal work surfaces. Tile flooring for kitchens and bathrooms is a classic and practical choice, but if you're installing new tile, keep to solid neutrals. Bold patterns in tile flooring can look great, but leave home buyers wondering where to look. 

  4. Overly Cold White Interiors 
    Rooms awash in white can look impressive in photos. But for someone seeking warmth and comfort, all-white interiors can look cold and clinical. White interiors also show scuffs and stains readily. If you're not ready to paint or change the flooring, break up an expanse of white with wall hangings, plants, or pillows to add texture and color. 

Homebuyers deserve the chance to make their own artistic statement once they choose one of the Raleigh homes for sale to make their own. You can help them visualize themselves calling your place home when you stage your home as a canvas for them to embrace their favorite interior design trends.

Picking The Right Paint

Picking the Right PaintReady to pick out paint to make your new home your own? Perhaps you're toying with the idea of changing a wall color to refresh a room before you sell? Maybe the front door needs a facelift to boost your curb appeal? No matter what painting project you want to take on, you may soon find that selecting the perfect paint color isn't as easy as it seems.

There are thousands of colors to choose from in varying finishes making it hard to narrow down the best hue for you. Not to mention, that studies have proven that a home's paint colors may have the power to impact its sale both positively and negatively. 

Zillow's 2017 Paint Color Analysis discovered that "walls painted in cool neutrals like blue or gray have broad appeal, and may be signals that the home is well cared for or has other desirable features." Even more interesting, especially to soon-to-be sellers, the study revealed that homes with blue bathrooms, specifically hues of powder blue or pale periwinkle, sold for $5,440 more than anticipated. Zillow's Chief Economist Svenja Gudell added:

"Color can be a powerful tool for attracting buyers to a home, especially in listing photos and videos. Painting walls in fresh, natural-looking colors, particularly in shades of blue and pale gray not only make a home feel larger, but also are neutral enough to help future buyers envision themselves living in the space. Incorporating light blue in kitchens and bathrooms may pay off especially well as the color complements white countertops and cabinets, a growing trend in both rooms."

What paint colors are best?

Designer recommended paint colors Fortunately, the pros have weighed in and made some excellent recommendations for the perfect paint colors to choose for your home. Plan to bookmark these paint chip picks. 

Picking a White Paint

It may surprise you, but white is among the hardest paint colors to pick. Just like other hues on the color wheel, white comes in varying shades that appear warm or cool depending on the mix and the colors with which the paint is paired (think trim work and walls).

Elle Décor recently shared its interior design team's favorite white paints including:

  • All White by Farrow & Ball
  • Great White by Farrow & Ball
  • Honeymilk by Valspar
  • Lily of the Valley by Benjamin Moore
  • Simply White by Benjamin Moore
  • White Diamond by Benjamin Moore
  • White Dove by Benjamin Moore

Picking a Neutral Paint 

On the hunt for something neutral? Get ready; there are a lot of paints that apply in a variety of colors.

A paint-picking article published by the Washington Post keys this task up honestly with input from an in-the-know designer; "Neutrals are difficult to select because thought needs to be given to whether a warm or cool tone best suits the project," says Josh Hildreth, a Reston designer. "Natural light and lighting conditions need to be considered."

If beige is what you are after, Curbed, a popular website about all-things home, offers up some paint suggestions from its designer contributors:

  • Cumulus Cloud by Benjamin Moore
  • Jute by Benjamin Moore
  • Pale Oak by Benjamin Moore
  • Rockport Gray by Benjamin Moore (don't let the "gray" in the title dissuade, you may prefer a beige that is cool opposed to warm)
  • Skimming Stone by Farrow & Ball

Picking a Gray Paint

Gray continues to be the color of choice among home décor designers. If it's also your preference, you should know that the new neutral comes in blue-, green- and taupe-based hues that may change color under different light sources.

Your best bet will be to consider some paints picked by the professionals and test them out in your own home before you commit to a final color. Here are some gray paints recommended by the design team at House Beautiful:

  • Down Pipe by Farrow & Ball
  • Graytint by Benjamin Moore
  • Magnetic Gray by Sherwin-Williams
  • Mindful Gray by Sherwin- Williams
  • November Rain by Benjamin Moore
  • Shaded White by Farrow & Ball
  • Stone Harbor by Benjamin Moore
  • Wrought Iron by Benjamin Moore

Picking a Blue Paint 

The most popular color across the board, blue is a hue that you'll see in all styles of home décor. The cool color evokes a serene, soothing feeling making it a great option for a kitchen, bathroom or bedroom.

Designers are also a fan of using the color to create a statement against complementary shades of white, gray and beige.

Some soft, watery blue paints to consider include:

  • Blue Veil by Benjamin Moore
  • Light Blue by Farrow & Ball
  • Early Frost by Benjamin Moore
  • Tidewater by Sherwin-Williams

Seeking a shade that will make more of a statement? These blues may be just what you desire:

  • Caribbean Azure by Benjamin Moore
  • Searching Blue by Sherwin-Williams
  • Pitch Blue by Farrow & Ball
  • Santa Monica Blue by Benjamin Moore
  • Polo Blue by Benjamin Moore 

Picking a Green Paint

Much like blue, green is a color that is often used in home décor designs to set the stage for calming and relaxing rooms.

Well displayed in nature, the hue styles well with many colors and is a good pick for a fresh, clean look. Designer-approved shades include:

  • Aganthus Green by Benjamin Moore
  • Stone White by Farrow & Ball
  • Vert De Terre by Benjamin Moore
  • Hancock Green by Benjamin Moore
  • Creekside Green by Benjamin Moore

Picking a Red Paint

Do you want to add a pop of red in your home? The bold hue is a homeowner favorite, but may not always be the best choice if you are prepping for a sale.

Think strategic paint placements—a statement wall, a friendly front door or a backdrop to your built-ins—over total saturation. Some red paint chips to pick up and test out include:

  • Chili Pepper by Benjamin Moore
  • Dressage Red by Ralph Lauren Paint
  • Million Dollar Red by Benjamin Moore
  • Moroccan Red by Benjamin Moore
  • Redstone by Benjamin Moore
  • Relay Red by Ralph Lauren Paint
