How to Brighten Your Home With a Statement Wall

by Logan Wilson


Convert a Bland Wall Into a Stunning Design Feature

Just because a new home comes with fresh white walls doesn't mean they have to stay that way. A statement wall can pull a design together, add personality, and make furniture and accessories pop. Creating an eye-catching feature can be simple, starting with a wall to highlight. 

Whether you choose to make a statement with a bold, bright wall color or an exotic, textured wallpaper, the key is to balance it with other design elements in the room. 

Choose a Focal Point -- Decide what aspect of the room you would like to draw attention to. Fireplaces, large furniture pieces and artwork are popular focal points. If your room doesn't lend itself to having a statement wall, highlight existing features like a small office nook or an inset wall. 

Pick a Bold Color or Pattern -- Choose a bright color, interesting texture or striking pattern for your statement wall. Pick up a color from the furniture or textiles already in the room or go with a contrasting color to stand out more.

Place Furniture for Maximum Impact -- Arrange pieces of furniture to draw attention to your statement wall. For example, two light-colored occasional chairs on opposite sides of a darkly painted wall attract the eye and create a focal point, particularly when they're coupled with pops of color in pillows, lamps and art.

Add Accents -- Finish off a room's design by carefully placing accessories that highlight your statement wall. This is the perfect opportunity to integrate your personality into your home. Show off your favorite artwork, family heirlooms or travel keepsakes.

The FAA and Drones for Real Estate

by Logan Wilson

As most know or one with a little skill using Google could discover that there is quite a bit of controversy of whether or not drones in general for commercial use should be illegal or regulated by the FAA. Having a passion for flight and aviation using a drone is addicting whether it is flying it on the weekends for fun taking photos of a pasture full of cattle or keeping my three year old niece entertained. The problem with taking these unique photos that provide a different perspective than most of us are accustomed to is that I can use my drone in the exact same manner to capture photos of real estate as a broker and all of a sudden it becomes illegal. Although there has been, that I know of, one real estate company that has been approved to use their drone for commercial use, it should be more streamlined for our industry. The permitting process for a drone is quite burdensome, especially if I was not handy using a computer. I believe consumers both buying real estate as well as selling recognize the benefit of adding the unique perspective of aerial photos to the marketing of real estate.
