Point out top brands. It pays to learn whats considered the industrys crème de la crème by studying websites, reading design magazines, and visiting top kitchen showrooms. “Then, drop names in marketing materials and with buyers,” says Mallios. A few products that regularly rate five-star cachet for bold creativity or artisanal craftsmanship include Bertozzi and Smeg ranges, Waterworks and Ann Sachs tiles, Flavor Paper wallpaper, Farrow & Ball and Benjamin Moore paint palettes, and Elegance in Hardware pulls and knobs. “Even if some buyers dont recognize the name, citing them gives the impression, ‘Oh, this must be special. I should Google and check it out,” Barnett says. Double down on the bold. Designers and stagers have a grab bag of tricks to tone down bold choices and attract a wider buyer pool tailored for specific situations and features. But heres one you might not have considered: Instead of trying to make a colorful range disappear, Pogonitz repeats its hue on walls or in artwork. “Any color becomes a neutral when used elsewhere in a room rather than remaining the focal point that pops,” she says. If the boldness is in a floor pattern, she takes one of its colors and repeats it in a solid on walls or counters for a unifying effect.
Outdoor living can add enormous joy to homeowners lives, expand usable square footage, and provide a boost when marketing a house for resale. But with more and more Americans focused on wellness, a new gardening niche is emerging. Of course, the idea of a therapeutic garden offering refuge after an illness or trauma—or space to meditate, destress, and connect with ones spiritual self—is hardly new. During the Middle Ages, monastery hospitals developed therapy gardens, and for centuries Japanese people have been using Zen rock gardens as sacred places to perform their daily rituals. In the last few decades, hospitals, memory-care centers, and cancer clinics have taken the lead in constructing gardens that incorporate different features to serve patients specific needs, says landscape architect Jack Carman, founder and president of Design for Generations in Medford, N.J. Owners of businesses outside the health care industry concerned about workplace stress soon followed suit. Jarrod Baumann, CEO of Zeterre Landscape Architecture in San Francisco, has designed many on-site gardens where employees at high-tech companies can unwind.
