Whenever Rick and I are preparing a home for the market, we spend quite a bit of time and focus on making sure the bedrooms in a home reflect a beautiful and cozy space. Today’s article, How to Make a Beautiful Bed includes designer tips beginning with linen selection, pillows, and shams to photos of six luxurious beds from homes that we have recently staged and sold. Beautiful bedrooms shouldn’t be reserved for marketing brochures. After all, we spend a third of our lives sleeping, our bedroom should be a luxurious place to rest and enjoy.

Thinking this through, the recent protests in Hong Kong proceeded this study, so it will be interesting to see how this unrest impacts buying behavior one way or the other.
We were pleased to represent the seller in the sale of this beautifully remodeled home, located at 525 Vista Avenue in San Carlos and just a short distance from its downtown. This property is highly stylized with transitional interiors, check out the massive Restoration Hardware chandelier in the kitchen.

Stay tuned, we have more interesting properties coming.
