We pour so much love and care into helping our home take care of us - it’s about time for our homes to help us out a little, right? (Mostly joking - but hey, we take what we can get with our homes, right?). All jokes aside, it’s an amazing world we’re in that we can have switches, appliances, security - you name it - as part of our  “smart home” set up. This means that things that would normally be manual are either automated, activated by voice, synchronized, connected, etc. 

A recent study by a major real estate firm showed that ⅔ of agents agree that buyers are more interested in homes with smart home features than just two to five years ago. Just like any new home feature - while smart home features aren’t yet expected by homebuyers, they are

In 2019, we witnessed the departure of several design trends that had simply worn out their welcome. Dark wood cabinets, pre-packaged looks, all-gray spaces, wall-to-wall white, and solo accent walls were all out, and warm coppers and sparkling coastal blues made a grand entrance.

Whether you’re redecorating your space in 2020, purchasing a new home, or getting ready to stage a home for sale, it’s time to prepare for the new decade of interior design. The following trends are fresh and updated yet classic, and easily adaptable to suit your home’s existing character.

Saving for a downpayment is one of the first steps to buying a home --apart from getting pre-qualified for a mortgage. Starting your savings also requires quite a bit of commitment. It takes discipline to forgo that weekend getaway with friends or reduce everyday purchases like your usual morning latte.
