We cover so many great decorating tips in this episode, whether you’re in your forever home or looking to sell, from color trends and backsplashes to personalization to remodeling. Tune in to this fun and value-packed episode to get in touch with your inner decorator today!

In This Episode:

  • [01:37] Changes in color trends.
  • [05:04] Creating that ‘wow factor’ with pops of color and wallpaper.
  • [13:04] Learning from Covid and the importance of making your home your own.
  • [16:43] Joann and Kelly’s thoughts on vertical blinds, sliding mirrored closet doors, quotes on walls, backsplashes, and wrapping appliances.
  • [23:17] You should enjoy decorating your space, but don’t overlook function. Storage is a luxury.
  • [26:18] What to update first if you’re selling your home.
  • [29:33] How to work with Joann and Kelly.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you have a good eye or you’ve worked with a designer, you can have a navy blue ceiling that wouldn’t scare anybody away. If something is done well, it doesn’t have to be neutral.
  • Unless you’re moving in a year or so, don’t be afraid to add your personality and put your own touch into your home. That’s what makes a home great.
  • If you know you’re going to sell your house in a year or two, do a simple remodel of key spaces like the kitchen and bathrooms. You don’t want potential buyers to start envisioning updates that they can’t handle.
  • Don’t underestimate the power of lighting and curb appeal.
