“There’s no place like home for the holidays”. Uttering those words in the Piedmont where the humidity of summer heat is still heavy in the air will get you some strange looks. But if you voice those words around anyone who works in home furnishings or interior design, they will smile and nod, because they know that October is a critical time. October is the month to prepare for holiday guests and parties. It is urgent that you start projects now if you plan to have changes complete before the holidays. Each year, we have customers call the week before Thanksgiving and get disappointed when they find the date too late to complete most remodeling or redecorating projects.
We all like to open our doors to family and friends and the first week of October is a great time to start. Small changes can make a huge difference in your home, whether you decide to create a cozy guest room with new bedding, remodel a bath, or select new window treatments for you kitchen or family room. Small changes to these areas make a huge difference if you need to update your home. Recreating an area will not only improve the value of your home, but it will make you feel confident and relaxed as the busy holiday season nears.
You will be able to spend your time with people rather than scrambling around trying to find items for your home at the last minute.
For those of you who need inspiration and ideas before you embark on a project-never fear.
The “builder elves” of the Home Builder’s Association have been working through the summer to provide inspiring homes. Come and visit the Parade of Homes, October 13th and 14th or October 20th and 21st, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
This year June DeLugas Interiors partnered with Custom Homes by Hamrick on a lovely home at 4164 Allistair Road off Peace Haven Road in Winston Salem, NC. Lots of personal touches and inviting rooms wait. If you need inspiration before the Parade of Homes, visit our website and blog where we have a great collection of before and after photos of projects we have completed in client homes. Like it or not, holiday season approaches. Let a professional, like us, help you be prepared this year.
