Shopping for Your Home in Atlanta and Beyond!
By Stephanie Percynski
With 7 agents on our team and nearly $70 million in sales for 2016, our team has been exposed to a variety of trends, color schemes, and furniture styles. Many Real Estate agents are drawn to this career because of their passion for interior design and all things home related. That is certainly the case for the agents on our team, as well as our support staff. The Sherry and Maria Team strive to stay on top of current design trends as well as emerging ones. We love passing this information on to both our buyers and sellers. Our listing agents, with the assistance of a home stager, can guide our sellers in choosing paint colors and rearranging furniture. While furniture and décor does not stay with the home once sold, a well-decorated, updated home will sell more quickly and most likely for a higher price! Many of our clients are first-time home buyers on a tight budget. There are some great options in Atlanta for “getting the look for less!” For those buyers upsizing, use this resource guide to fill those extra rooms!
We have written many articles about trends in home décor for this newspaper. The American Farmhouse look is still very strong, undoubtedly influenced by the popular HGTV show, “Fixer Upper,” featuring Chip and Joanna Gaines. Cooler paint tones and light, neutral furnishings are still trending. Regardless of your taste, farmhouse or European, we highly recommend to our sellers “less is more.”
Atlanta is filled with stores, both local and national chains, making shopping for your home a breeze! Here are just some of the stores and markets we recommend and shop at ourselves:
Queen of Hearts Antiques (several dealers sell Annie Sloan and Amy Howard chalk paint/accessories): Alpharetta, Buford, and Marietta
Custom Farmhouse Furniture
Unique Furniture and Accessories
Pottery Barn: North Georgia Premium Outlets, Dawsonville, GA
Restoration Hardware: North Georgia Premium Outlets, Dawsonville, GA
Ballard Designs: 2 locations in Atlanta!
Online Retailers/Flash Sales/Daily Deals
Environmental psychologists say that our homes are an extension of ourselves, they help define us and make us feel like we belong. As visual creatures, what we see in our homes affects our well-being and mental health. Regardless of your budget or whether you are a homeowner or renter, you can create a space to recharge, to laugh and to connect!
