Have a great Canada Day and fantastic weekend!
I am sure that most of you are excited as I am for Canada’s 150 birthday. The flags are out, people are making plans and our hotels are booked.
I thought I would share some great furniture pieces and some great home decor to celebrate our great country. Take a look at some “made in Canada” fabulous finds!
Is it difficult for you to rent out your property? Showcasing your rental property can help attract potential renters. It can also help target the right tenants for your property.
Here are a few ideas on how staging your rental can help you:
It is important to find a qualified stager as well. Your stager will know what accessories and furniture can attract the right buyer. This is especially important for a younger target market who want ” a fresh looking unit ” It is also a good idea to refresh the walls by selecting the right paint colours that will appeal to potential tenants. A staging consult is always a good idea. Sometimes properties will sit for months. The paint colours may be “off ” or the property is just not showcased in its best possible way. This can cost the owners thousands upon thousands of dollars.
We have had our kitchen cabinets professionally spray painted before. In 2007 I chose a pure, crisp white from Benjamin Moore called Chantily Lace. That was back in 2007 and although I still love white for kitchen cabinets blue rocks as well!
A blue painted bathroom cabinet with the right selection of flooring and tile can work! Even if you are selling. Blue kitchen or bathroom cabinets have been hot in the last couple of years. With the right finishes blues can look beautiful! It is also a great choice for those of you who want to renovate. Of course, blue painted cabinets looks especially awesome in coastal inspired homes.
Undertones can vary depending on which blue you choose. Rich blues with dark grey undertones are finding their way into many kitchens. While softer, light and airy blues are ever so popular as well. One thing they all have in common is that they can be stunning in a kitchen or bathroom.
Here are some popular Benjamin Moore blue paint colours that are trending now.
Have a wonderful weekend!
I use neutral paint colours when staging but it is fun to choose different paint colours when I am not. I recently chose some Spanish inspired paint colours for a client. It definitely made me come out of my comfort zone for sure!
When choosing the paint colours I thought about the character and finishes of the home. Her home has some key elements like white stucco walls, hand painted tiles, pottery and mosaics. My client wanted a “happy yellow” and an orange for her Spanish revival home.
For the bathroom we chose Sherwin Williams Butter Up. This is a beautiful softer yellow perfect for a bathroom. For the downstairs we chose Jonquil and Peppery both by Sherwin Williams. Peppery will be used for an accent wall. I can not wait to see the end result and will post photos when done.
Here are some photos for those of you that love this style of architecture and finishes.
Above are the Sherwin Williams paint colours I chose for a recent colour consult. Photos are coming……
