How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests


How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

In addition to showcasing the luxury listings of Ebby Halliday Realtors, the fall 2016 issue of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine offers a plethora of interesting editorial content, including “Home Away from Home,” featuring advice on designing the ideal guest room from design and lifestyle expert Kathy Fielder.

 

How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

“With the holiday season quickly approaching, now is the time to consider your home’s guest accommodations and what you can do to make your friends and family members feel at home — in your home,” Fielder says. “The first tip I always provide clients, family and friends about their guest rooms? ‘Spend the night there to see if you would enjoy it.’

 

How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

Fielder says the key to the success of your guest bedroom design is in the planning. Each detail should be carefully considered so that you optimize the space available.

 

How to Pamper Your Holiday Guests

 

Fielder recommends creating a Pinterest board or making some sort of inspiration board. When you do, you will start to see a pattern.

 

“Once you have decided on modern or traditional, eclectic or transitional, you’ll be motivated to choose your color palette,” Fielder says.

 

Color defines and breathes life into our spaces. It appeals to our senses, and studies show that our bodies physically react to color. That being said, it makes sense to choose the colors you will use in your guest bedroom wisely.

Luxury Market Sizzles


Luxury real estate is in high demand. That’s the only conclusion one can draw from a quick look at D-FW luxury home sales in the past year:

 

Luxury Home Sales

*  $1 to $2 million: up 11.2%

*  $2 to $3 million: up 5.7%

*  $3 to $5 million: up 24.1%

*  Above $5 million: up 33.3%

 

While sales are up in all luxury price points, they are up sharply in the $3 million-and-up segment of the North Texas market.

 

While most North Texans may never own such a property, this is good news for all of us who call D-FW home. It’s a sure sign that we’re feeling better about our economy and are willing to spend on the things we value.

 

Just what will $3 million buy in Dallas-Fort Worth? In short, a lot. Below are a few of the exceptional luxury homes proudly represented by Ebby Halliday’s talented Associates.
