Getting Paint Right the First Time - JYB Realty

Few decorating moves can transform the ambiance of a room as easily and inexpensively as a fresh coat of paint. The shade we pick to adorn our interior walls provides a background on which the rest of our aesthetic choices are based on. Picking the right color, however, is no walk in the park. It's a boggling world of various shades, tints, and hues, each one just a little different from the last. Many just choose their favorite color or go all-out with the color of the day, only for it to look like a dud once it's up on the walls. To put this age-old problem to rest, our real estate agents have compiled a list of the best tips on how to find the perfect interior paint color the first time.

  • Do Your Homework Before Shopping
    Finding the perfect paint color starts at home. Before you make a trip to the paint store, gather inspiration from fabric swatches, magazines, and catalogs. Pinterest is also a great place to start, so login, make an inspiration board for your room, and pin designs that catch your eye. The inspirational ideas can help you visualize the perfect space and narrow down your paint color choices.

Homeowners: Color Trends for 2021 | JYB Realty

2021 is the perfect opportunity to spruce up your home and make it a little bit more comfortable. If you are looking for a fast and cost-effective option that will add value to your home, a fresh coat of paint is something our real estate agents highly recommend. Of course, it always pays to stay up-to-date on trends so that your paint choice matches the tastes of prospective buyers.

  • Pantone Returns to the Classics
    Pantone's Color of the Year for 2020 was Classic Blue. This simple color makes a statement that is as soft and subtle as it is timelessly elegant. When you look at the world's most extraordinary homes and palaces, you will find plenty of Classic Blue walls, ceilings, and trim.

    For 2021, Pantone has chosen to stick with a more subdued color of Ultimate Gray. Soft and refined, it's a practical color that works well in living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and more. However, as with Classic Blue, it's best to use these colors in rooms with plenty of natural light; otherwise, it can feel a bit confining. In addition, Illuminating, a bright, sunny yellow, has also been showcased by Pantone for 2021 and provides a welcome pop of color when paired with Ultimate Gray.

Decorate for Fall - Homeowner Tips - JYB Realty

As the days get shorter and the air gets crisper, it's time to start thinking about how to decorate your front porch for fall. Atlanta homes for sale will get more attention when they have a cozy, lived-in look. Add instant curb appeal by following these tips for the perfect, autumn-ready front porch.

  • Create a Cozy Place to Sit
    If you have the space, create a cozy place to sit and sip on your morning coffee while you enjoy crisp autumn mornings. Set up a bench or a couple of chairs, depending on the size of your porch, and don't forget to make the area weather-proof so that you can enjoy your porch all autumn long. Partially enclosing the porch with windows or screens will let light in while acting as a windbreak, or you can hang insulated curtains to help keep the area comfortable. Throw pillows and blankets add the finishing touches to a cozy fall retreat.
