Holiday Home Decorating Trends for 2022

Looking for ideas to decorate your home for the holidays? There are many festive options this year. Look at some holiday decor trends for 2022:

Holiday table with ornaments

Dramatic Table Scapes
Deck out your table this holiday season. Try non-traditional colors and dried flowers. Cinnamon, pinecones and ornaments are wonderful decor items to consider for your table.

holiday home

General Decor
Add natural elements such as cozy throw blankets, woven baskets and felt decor. Fresh greens (pine and cedar) are great items to add in your home for that holiday spirit.

Christmas Tree
Whether you have a traditional tree or a modern version, there are many options to deck it out. Color trends to consider would include neutrals such as tans and pinks; dark blues with burgundy or gray highlights; gemstone colors of purple, green and deep pink or a palette of grays and light blues.

Very Peri is the 2022 Pantone Color of the Year. This is a dusky purple and looks wonderful with green or flocked trees. It goes well with silver or gold and other jewel tones. Although not a traditional holiday color, it looks quite regal.

Silver and pink holiday ornaments

Metallics
Silver and gold are always popular during the holidays. These colors look rich and glamorous and can have either a traditional or modern vibe. Trendy colors include cobalt blue paired with silver or pink displayed with gold ornaments.

gingerbread home decor

Gingerbread
Considering “cozy and comfortable” holiday decor? Think gingerbread! A holiday classic, gingerbread decor can vary from whites and tans to bright colors with embellishments.

Holiday home decor

Natural Tones
Lighter tones with a variety of green look wonderful. Stone, linen and wood adds interest to this type of holiday decor.

Oversized holiday outdoor ornaments

Outdoor Ornaments
If you enjoy decorating your front lawn for the holidays, consider oversized ornaments. You can either purchase them or create them as a DIY project. See samples here.

Holiday wreaths

Wreaths
A wreath on a door has a heartwarming holiday feel. There are so many types of of these decor items – from traditional greens, pine cones and berries, to dried flowers, pompoms and more. Look at these wreathes for inspiration.

Halloween Safety Tips – for Your Home and the Trick or Treaters

Trick or treaters running

It’s almost time for  Halloween. The kids will soon have fun wearing their costumes and trick or treating in their neighborhoods. Here are tips to make this holiday a safe one:

Home Safety

  • Clear your walkway of any debris and wet leaves to avoid tripping or slipping hazards.
  • Keep pets inside, away from doors or windows so they won’t scare trick-or-treaters.
  • Don’t hand out candy that could be a possible choking hazard for young children.
  • Have your porch/entrance well lit if you are handing out candy. Keep the lights off if you do not want visitors.
  • Young children should not carve pumpkins.

Trick-or-Treating

  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children.
  • Older unsupervised children should go out with a group, follow an acceptable/safe route, and return home at a specific time.
  • Only visit homes with a porch light on and never enter a stranger’s home or car for a treat.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up.
  • Stay on the sidewalks, cross only at corners, and don’t run across the street.
  • Make sure to carry flashlights, especially if staying out after dark.
  • Travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and avoid trick-or-treating alone.
  • Don’t eat any treats until returning home so you can carefully inspect them.

Costumes

  • All costumes, wigs and accessories should be made of fire-resistant materials.
  • Accessories like swords or knives should be made out of cardboard or a flexible material.
  • Pick brightly colored costumes and fasten reflective objects to clothing and bags so they are visible to motorists.
  • Avoid oversized or high-heeled shoes that can cause a child to trip.
  • Make sure masks or other head accessories don’t impede vision. (It is advisable to use make up or face paint instead of a mask.)
  • Avoid tripping hazards, make sure costume is not too long and shoes are the proper size.
  • Remove all makeup before going to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation.
  • Attach your child’s name and contact information inside their costume.

Halloween is Here! Scare up some Fun by Decorating Your Front Yard

Halloween home decor ideas

With fall weather officially here, many homeowners start thinking about the start of the holiday season that begins with Halloween and then runs through the first week of January. Traditional holiday decorating can be fun, but for many homeowners, perhaps the most exciting decor is Halloween because it lets them get a little adventurous with both the interior and exterior of their homes.

When it comes to scaring up some good ideas to creep out the neighbors, experts recommend investing time and energy in making a front yard look as spooky as possible. With that in mind, there are plenty of easy do-it-yourself ideas you can knock out in a weekend just in time for those trick or treaters. Here are just a few:

Webs Everywhere
Some of the easiest decorations are the ever-popular fake spider webs. They can be easy to find at just about any local craft store. You can also make them out of yarn and can be as large as you like. See instructions here from HGTV. Check out this giant spider decoration here.

Lighting Option to Bewitch Visitors
Particularly crafty owners can also make lighting fixtures and hang them on their porch or from posts in their yards to really cast a spell on visitors, according to Polka Dot Chair. Witch hats (which can be purchased from any costume shop) are paired with fishing line, a few pins, and LED lights to create a spooky atmosphere.

Straw-Stuffed Scarecrow
Another great way to have a simple DIY project that probably won’t cost much at all is to take an old button-up shirt and pair of pants nobody wears any more, and fill it with straw. Then you can stand it against a tree, sit it on a porch or otherwise incorporate it into a scary scene. You can use a pumpkin, a paint bucket, or something else as a head – or to recall Ichabod Crane’s old foe – simply go headless to put an extra-disquieting exclamation on your front yard. See instructions here and here.

Traditional Decorations with a Twist

And of course, what front yard Halloween decorations would be complete without that tried-and-true Jack-o-Lantern? You don’t have to rely on triangular eyes and a crooked smile any more, because carving enthusiasts post printable patterns for even scarier designs. And instead of putting a candle in that pumpkin, LED lights that are designed to flicker like candles might be a smart long-term investment.

Here Lies Halloween
Finally, many families can have a bit of macabre comic fun by cutting up cardboard gravestones and incorporate a few jokes about who could be interred there. Whether it’s famous movie monsters, “punny” seasonal names or simply family in-jokes, that kind of decorating effort can really give a yard a chilling addition. See ideas here, here and here.

Front Doors
Your front door is a great item to decorate for Halloween. From “googly eyes” to doors wrapped like a mummy, there are many options for creating a statement door. Look for inspirational ideas here and here.

Yard entrance decorated for traditional Halloween celebration, low angle view

There are also plenty of other ideas out there you can find online, or make up your own. The trick at this time of year is to be as creative as possible so visitors have a spooktacular time, whether they’re stopping in for a chat or just there to pick up a treat on All Hallow’s Eve.

Sell Your Home By the End of the Year

Selling your home in fall or winter

Want to sell your home now and not wait until the spring market? Fall and early winter could the perfect time.There are still buyers looking for homes and during this time of year, they are usually serious ones. And, you will have less competition of other homes on the market. 

Here are ideas to sell your home now before the end of this year:

Asking Price
Be realistic about the asking price. It needs to be based on a current competitive analysis and not by your emotions attached to your home. It is not a good strategy to “test the market” and see how a higher price does. If your home is priced too high, you will ultimately end up lowering it as well as lose that initial buying market. 

Competitive Market Analysis
Your real estate agent will see what has sold, is pending and active in your area for comparable properties. This research will give you a good feel for how the market is doing with buyers and will help with the proper pricing of your home.

Put Your Best Foot Forward
Make sure your home is in tip-top shape and ready to sell. It should be rid of clutter, have neutral decor and have any known problems serviced. Ask your agent for honest feedback about your home. The better the showing condition, the faster it could sell. Remember, first impressions count.

Curb Appeal
During fall it’s important to keep up with mowing and raking. Keep gutters clear. Potted mums will make the front yard look cheery before the first frost hits. If there is snow, clear walkways and the driveway. Landscape lighting adds drama. 

Tone Down Seasonal Decor
Fall and winter seasons are prime times for home decor. When selling your home, keep holiday decorations to the minimum. You do not want to distract from your home’s features. Perhaps a few pumpkins in fall and some greenery in December. 

Fireplace
If you have a functioning fireplace, now is the time to show it off! Light that fire to create a cozy environment. 

Keep the Lights On
With less daylight in fall and winter, make sure your home looks at light filled as possible. Open curtains and pul back the blinds. Keep lights on in all rooms. 

Flexibility
Offering flexible terms to the home buyer could work in your favor at this time of year. Is the buyer in a rush to move or need time to close on the home?

Pricing Your Home Correctly to Sell

Price Your Home To Sell

When selling your home, the goal is to obtain the highest possible price.

What Should You Sell Your Home For?

Pricing your home correctly with your agent is crucial. It’s the “Goldilocks effect”. Price it too high and you take a risk of discouraging offers from buyers. You then may need a price drop to gather up buyer interest. Price drops are sometimes viewed as a red flag. Buyers may wonder if there is a problem with the home.

Price your home too low and buyers may question your home’s condition and if there are problems at that bargain-basement price.

Price Your Home in the Center – Not Too Low and Not Too High

By pricing at the correct market value you’ll increase the chances of getting strong offers for your home. Right out of the gate, you will attract buyers and there may be a bidding war. If that happens, you will end up with an even higher final sale price. (Another perk is that your home should sell quickly in this current real estate market.)

How Your Agent Prices Homes To Sell
Your agent takes several things into consideration when pricing a home:

  1. The current values of homes in your neighborhood. (Your agent runs “comps” of recently sold homes and will generate a comparative market analysis to review pricing with you.)
  2. The current demand for homes in your area.
  3. The condition of your home also affects its current value.

    Upgrades and Renovations To Your Home
    Any renovations and upgrades to your home may add value, but not always. It is doubtful you will receive the full dollar amount that you spent. Remember, the potential buyer will not care how much sweat equity you’ve put into your home and its improvement.

    Be sure to talk to you agent about what improvements would be best to improve the sale of your home. (It may be necessary repairs, staging or some curb appeal tweaks.)
