Stumps and Trunks, The Love Of Fallen Trees!

Has a tree fallen in your yard lately? It doesn't have to be considered an unsightly eyesore... The stump, trunk or branches from a tree can make charming additions to the home. Get creative and put that trunk or stump to great use inside and outside the home.

 Tree stumps are coming home and bringing a bit of nature inside by being transformed as tables, a base for a table and stools to just about any room of your home. Some keeping their natural color and others being painted to bring on a chic cottage feel!

Bring A Beach / Cottage Coastal Style Home!

Most of us don't have the pleasure of enjoying the coastal living year round. Enjoy your home by bringing a relaxing beach or cottage design style to your interior. Give your home the laid-back setting that's just right for summer.
Bring It Home With A Few Of These Tips And Decorating Ideas...

It's All About The Colors And Accessorizing, Add natural and sea inspired elements throughout your home to help achieve this look and feel. Nothing screams beach design more than crisp white slipcovers in a stylish relaxed fit.

You’ll rest easy knowing your furnishings are fully washable and get the added benefit of their beautifully relaxed look.

Go classically coastal with a blue-and-white color palette. The bright white provides the perfect base for deep blue accents, A crisp combo that’s always right on trend. Nautical Stripes and a mix of nautical decorative elements, such as anchors, rope and sailboat models.


Easily bring a coastal design to your dining room or kitchen by covering your existing chairs with floor length dining chair slipcovers.

If your color palette is white and airy, Break up a neutral palette by adding unexpected bits of color. Eyes will be drawn around the room with each vibrant and seasonal accessory. Use seashells that you've collected from previous vacations, seaglass colored bottles, coral, weathered oars, starfish, candles, driftwood pieces, rope and picture boxes with sea inspired decor.

A mix of accessories and furniture from different time periods and cozy textures from woven accessories are the perfect addition to this laid-back style. Accent with old clocks, lamps, lanterns or various beach finds on mantels and side tables to enhance your personal style.

Stage Your Home For A Quick Sale

When putting your house on the market, you will be wanting to sell as quickly as possible and in hopes of getting your asking price. Staging can help...

via Sure Fit Inc

What is Staging? It is a method of decorating a home to show off it's most impressive assets. Impress buyers that walk through the door to hopefully get a sale quickly at the highest possible price.

Staging is not mandatory but when trying to sell one of your biggest lifetime investments, it is well worth the extra effort. Here a few "How To" tips to remember.

Exterior, Curb Appeal:
First impressions matter, Keep buyers interested and eager to want to walk through the front door to see what's inside. Keep lawn and landscaping well maintained while your house is on the market. Plant some flowers to add some color. Powerwash any exterior that looks to have ground in dirt and add a fresh coat of paint if needed. Clean windows and front door. Add a new clean welcoming doormat and seating on the front porch if it allows. If there is a showing in the evening hours, be sure to keep porch lights on along with any other outdoor lighting you have.

Buyers love walking into a home that is spotless and feels well kept. You want them to imagine themselves living there and not wanting to rush out because they are disgusted by the dirt. Let your countertops in kitchens and bathrooms sparkle! If carpets are stained or dirty, rent a carpet cleaner from your local hardware store or hire a professional. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way on sprucing up and neutralizing wall colors.

Declutter & Depersonalize:
This is a great opportunity to make your house look as spacious as possible. Help the buyer to notice all the special features of your home without worring that there won't be enough space for their belongings. Rehome these decluttered items until your house is sold. (rent a storage unit or store in a family member's basement) You want buyers to envision themselves in your home, removing family photos and personal items is important.

Make All Repairs:
Don't leave obvious holes or cracks in the walls or ceilings. Anything broken and repairable should be.

Furniture Placement:
Keep it simple and make sure your furniture is the correct size for the space your decorating. Furniture that is too big can make a room appear small and crowded. Pull furniture pieces away from walls if possible and use pairs (sofas, chairs) Keep it cozy and welcoming such as conversational seating around a fireplace. Choose neutrals colors to paint walls and tone down furniture upholstery. Slipcovers are an affordable way to restyle your existing pieces of furniture in neutral colors or refresh pieces that may be stained or worn.

Do you have extra or empty rooms? Don't use these rooms for storage. Show off every inch of your homes usable space. Each room should have a defined purpose. An office or guest bedroom is a wise choice when fulfilling needs of home buyers.

If your home is being shown during the daytime hours, Open those window treatments and let the natural light in. In the evening hours, turn all the lights on throughout the home. Replace all bulbs that have burned out.

Beware of Odors:
Ask a friend or neighbor to help you out with this one. Most homeowners are immune to their own smells. Pet odors are a big reason for concern. Be sure to vacuum well and wipe all surfaces to be free of fur. Keep pet beds or crates in the garage during showings and take animals out of the house if possible. If you are a smoker and you have plans to put your house on the market... Try to take it outdoors. Stale smoke is another hard odor to get rid of. Cleaning, deoderizing and lighting a candle can help remove these smells. ~ Don't forget to take the trash out.

Final Touches:
Add a few last minute touches just before a showing or open house. Include some fresh cut flowers,a fresh scent throughout the home and nicely placed plush towels in the bathrooms. If you have a fireplace and it's a cold day, have your fireplace on low for the perfect homey ambience.

Try to allow your staging efforts to appeal to the widest range of buyers so you can get many interests and sell your home at top asking price.

Don't Let Pet Hair Take Over Your House!

Summer is here, And for those of you with pets... Its shedding season. Don't let unwanted shed take over your home. Try to get on a grooming schedule, follow a few of these tips and visit our Pet Products For The Home to see if we have a home pet solution that will save you time.

If you have pets that are heavy shedders, it can be very time consuming keeping on top it. Feeling as if there is a forever coating of fur that makes it way onto your clothes, floor /carpeting, upholstery and even into your car.

Here are a few helpful tips and solutions for removing pet hair...

Preventative is key: The first step in to get on a grooming schedule(brush daily) and wash all pet beds and linens that your pet has contact with regularly.

Vacuum: Do this daily for best results. Choose a vacuum with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. There are several new styles that are engineered to remove pat hair from many surfaces.(misting with a spray bottle first can be helpful) Special attachments available to make the process easier. Do you vacuum your pets? Did you know there are pet grooming tools available to attach to your vacuum.

Dampen the palm of your hand or sponge and wipe in a downward motion. Hair should stick or clump together that you can then pick up.

Rubber / Latex Gloves or Broom: Create a Static Charge - Rub surface to remove unwanted hair. Dampen for increased effectiveness.
