Fall Décor Trends 2022

In Florida, the transition from summer to fall is a gradual one. The temperatures begin to cool down in October, and by November they're generally comfortable for spending time outdoors. Although we won't have colorful falling leaves like other places, we can still have fun decorating for it!

Let's look at some Fall décor trends that are taking place in 2022:

Colors

Transition your home into cozier colors like warm reds, oranges and browns. Choosing colors on the warmer side of the color palette will make your space seem cozier even if your A/C is still running. Green, traditionally a summer color, can fit your fall theme if you lean into a deep forest hue. Plus, it goes great with tones of brown and orange. You can easily incorporate these by switching out throw pillows, blankets, candles or maybe a rug. If you want to make a bigger change, you can always repaint an accent wall or two.
Another great way to add pops of orange to your home is with flowers or other ...

Why Its Beneficial To Invest In Real Estate

Real Estate has been voted as being Americans favorite investment for the long term for the fourth year in a row. Many news outlets are pushing out headlines that focus on the slowing of the real estate market, but no one is talking about the massive investment opportunities that we are seeing in front of us.

What To fix (and not to fix) When Getting Ready to Sell Your House

If you're thinking about selling your home, there are some things you should consider when getting ready to list. Many people are under the false assumption that you need to make major upgrades around the home in order to increase it's value. However, there are a couple of improvements you can make that will return the money you put in and attract more buyers. 

Why shouldn't you fix everything?

The main reason you shouldn't go around updating everything in your home is because not everything will return value. Money spent on repairs, replacements, and upgrades may be wasted if the prospective buyers don't find the improvements necessary or don't notice them. It's better to stick to cost-efficient fixes that will actually make an impression on potential buyers.

What should you fix?

When buyers look at your home during a showing, they tend to fixate on flooring, walls, kitchens and baths. So make sure to address basic wear and tear issues that appear in these areas.

Best House Plants For Beginners

I got my first house plant a year ago. It added color and brightness to my small, dark bedroom. Back then I was hesitant to add “water plant” to my daily to-do list. What if I forgot? What if I watered it too much, or too little? Or what if I gave it too little sun and it was too late? I didn't want to subject an innocent plant to my unskillful hands that definitely had no gardening skills.

When I realized that not all houseplants require constant attention or a meticulous watering schedule, it was easy to decide which plant to add to my home. Some just aren’t picky when it comes to watering and sun, and there are so many benefits to owning one! Adding greenery to a home adds color and breaks up traditional décor. They can clean up your air, relieve stress and even rid your space of toxins.

Here are 5 of the best houseplants for beginners:

Pothos 

My personal favorite is the Pothos plant. You won’t have to worry about forgetting to water ; ...
