Yesterday I read there are 66 days until Thanksgiving and 99 days until Christmas.

Yikes! Are you wanting to do some remodeling or changes to your home before then?  Did you know that small changes to your home can make a BIG difference?

Several years ago, I did just that.  Instead of remodeling everything, I made small changes to my house.  Some of those changes were replacing faucets, light fixtures, etc.  I hope to make even more changes in the coming year.

Street of Dreams PDX

This year I went to the Street of Dreams.  I say that because I don’t normally go to the show every year.  My clients look at me puzzled questioning why I don’t always go.  I see houses every day, and if I wanted to see a house that is/was on a Street, I have access to those. However, this year one of my clients really loved a particular house so I felt I owed it to them to take a look.

As real estate agents we have a “free” day when we can all go take a look. I missed that day and decided to go with a friend on another day. Typically it is very hot when the show runs, this year it wasn’t.  We also went during the dinner hour mid-week, and it was not crowded, to my delight.

However, I too needed and wanted some decorating inspiration and wanted to see what the new trends were.  There was lots of decorating I liked and a whole lot more I didn’t.  But I did see some trends and since I want to remodel my kitchen this year, I wanted to get ideas.


One of the many things I noticed at the show were all the contemporary light fixtures.

Just changing out your old light fixtures can make a big impact and will not cost as much as you might think.
