Do You Know How to Choose the Right Rug Size?

I think choosing the right rug size for a room is tricky. Rugs are a huge investment and so we often choose the smaller one to save a dollar or five hundred dollars!

I like Emily Henderson’s advice on choosing the right rug. Check it out HERE!Screenshot 2014-03-28 16.39.00

DIY with Natalme

I have been friends with Natalie Wright for a very long time and it seems she has always had a creative mind. When we were in high school she was already a great photographer and she had a super cool sense of style. In college we were roommates and she wallpapered our apartment with Christmas wrapping paper and strung lights as a border making it all the rage for the holidays.

Her blog never ceases to amaze me. Here are just a few of her awesome ideas:

The Best Time to Move!

One of the most common questions I get as a Realtor is when is the best time to list my house? Here is a graph that illustrates which month the most homes sold in 2013. This means an offer was accepted on the home 30-60 days before. So start getting your homes ready! March-May is coming quickly.

Vegetable Side Dishes

Are you still looking for that perfect vegetable side dish to compliment Tom Turkey? This year Roasted Brussels Sprouts will be a new addition to our table. Delicious! Below are more ideas to check out. Happy Thanksgiving!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons good olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt ( I like these salty like French fries), and serve immediately.
