Decorating Dilemma: How do a I create a picture collage?

IMG_1033Collages are a great way to pull together disparate pictures or photos and create a visually appealing wall. A few tricks to pulling them together:

1) Mix or match: My favorite collages have various frames and mats.  But matching mats and frames can look nice too.

2)  Spacing:  The trick to getting it to look right is to space the pictures fairly close together. You want them no closer than an inch of each other but also no further than about 3 inches.

3) Arrange on the floor first:  I always lay them out on the floor first to see what placements I like together. Big pictures can serve as nice anchors, surrounded by smaller pictures. Keep moving them around until you like it.

4) Balance vs. symmetry:  Try for balance from top to bottom and side to side, but not symmetry. Let the arrangement be kind of organic and not too predictable.

How’s the Market? Washington DC December 2012

032Two words: low inventory! Inventory was 39% lower this past December compared to December 2011.

Demand in DC remains strong. Sales were up 12% in December 2012 versus December 2011.

No surprise then – with strong demand and low supply – prices are going up. Median prices in DC were up 10% in December 2012 relative to December 2011.

Check out this video for details!

What does this mean? Buyers need skilled agents to help them navigate this market. Let me know if I can help. I take pride in helping my clients put together the most competitive offer possible!

For sellers, quick sales and increasing prices make it a great time to sell. Even if you are just considering the idea, I’d love to provide an initial consultation.

LOVE THIS! Room 11 on 11th Street

IMG_0957Had a great brunch here!   Sat in a pretty window seat with a view of this lovely bar, and enjoyed some excellent food.

Check it out!  Room 11 at 3234 11th Street NW (“East Columbia Heights”)

Make sure to stroll down 11th Street as well! Room 11 is just one of many new restaurants and bars.  Even feels a little European.

Move over H Street!

LOVE THIS! Qualia Coffee

QualiaIf you love coffee, check out Qualia Coffee on Georgia Ave in Petworth!  My husband is a major coffee snob and thinks it’s one of the best cups of coffee in DC.   I can vouch for the tea.  And customers seem very pleased with the bagel sandwiches and bakery.

What makes them unique?  They roast their own beans on site!

Check it out!  3917 Georgia Ave NW  (Petworth DC)
