With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, it’s important to make sure that your home’s interior design is up to par for all those critical family gatherings that are bound to occur. Because lets face it, the holidays are without a doubt a time for joy and happiness, but they can be pretty stressful, as well. Don’t worry; interior design can be a tricky, time-consuming task that sometimes only succeeds with the right amount of testing and, most importantly, patience. So where do you begin with your Thanksgiving home makeover? Well, right here of course!
Decorating your home for the Fall is all about those quintessential warm, colors. But when you have loved ones over for Thanksgiving, why not give them something to talk about (besides all the delicious food) with a combination of interior design techniques that will provide, dare we say, an out of body experience! To begin, incorporate harvest colors and berry tones throughout your homes design and pair it with textures like leather or suede to tie that comforting feel all together. Don’t forget to throw in some still life pictures. Most importantly, appeal to their olfactory senses with some scented candles; why not go for the biggest Fall trend and try out some crackling Pumpkin spice candles.
Granted, however, some of these methods are commonplace when it comes to creating a warm inviting home for Thanksgiving. But some of the most important 2014 Fall trends would prove to brighten up your home in a dazzling way. Start with smaller details like candleholders or iconic detail pieces, one of the latest trends uses mixed materials like a metal base and stone setting above that. Geometric forms have also found their way into many homes in 2014, try your hand at the trend with furniture pieces that have geometric legs or honeycomb wall shelves to give your room a nice twist!
Another neat technique you can try out is to blend an outdoor feel with your indoor living space. Not only will this hot 2014 trend bring your space to life just in time for Thanksgiving, but finding an iconic piece could bring a modern twist to an elegant design, so make sure to make it one-of-a-kind in your home to leave your Thanksgiving guests breathless. Finding all these great pieces will surely benefit your Fall home redesign in time for the holidays, but keeping them true to a color palette will be the defining factor in tying it all together! Try some bronze hues to convey a serene, yet formal atmosphere. And don’t forget, of course, that pop of color for extra points!
Finally, show your creative side with some neat Thanksgiving DIY projects for that big dinner! Whether it’s pumpkin placements or golden acorns, each little detail will breathe new life into the easily forgotten-about spaces. Try placing fall leaves or flowers with warm colors throughout your home, whether it is the Thanksgiving table or bathrooms. All in all, Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks for all that we have and a time for family and friends, so sit back, and enjoy the holiday!
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that Miami is going through some massive changes at this precise moment! Even amidst all of the climate change cries, Miami proves to stand strong in the real estate market as investors continue to take the risk of helping Miami expand. Not only has the Miami real estate boom been fueling the economy, but it’s also been the cause for new Miami projects to spring up out of the woodwork!
The surge in real estate has caused some of the most exciting new Miami projects to emerge in 2014 alone; however, most of them will not be completed for quite some time. Fisher Island showed some of the most recent new Miami projects with the first apartments springing up on the exclusive island for the first time since 2007. Backed by the demand for real estate, the new apartments appeal to homebuyers who are looking to join the luxurious island. This new real estate addition, however, is the smallest of the exciting Miami projects that are to be launched within the coming years.
One of the most speculated Miami projects is the upcoming Miami World Center. Although the initial proposal came with much opposition, the project promises to be transformative to the overall image of Miami, with over 1 million square feet of retail space, 1,800 rooms dedicated to the Marriott Marquis hotel. Reports suggest that the project is the largest development project that is currently taking place in the United States, generating approximately $1 billion in economic growth for the region. Not to mention, the project will be connecting to another new Miami project!
The new Miami World Center project would be connected to the Miami Central Station. The new project titled MiamiCentral would be a massive change to the downtown Miami scene. Not only would the station boast remarkable architectural design, but further drive the economic growth of the city. More excitingly however, the new project would be the flagship icon of the All Aboard Florida project that promises to connect major destinations of South Florida via train.
These are simply a few among the new Miami projects that will be springing up within the next coming years. Some of which, we’ll see sooner than others. However, one thing is for certain, the new projects will promise to revolutionize the way Miami is viewed as a destination city. Even more so, the combination of the financial growth and real estate success will only continue to amaze Miami natives by cultivating future growth! And we can’t wait!
