Lighten Up Your Northern Wisconsin Home!

by Adam Redman

Fall and winter in Northern Wisconsin is undoubtedly beautiful. However, the shorter days can sometimes make your home look gloomy in the evening hours. Brigthen up your home and keep it looking airy and fresh for the remainder of the year! Follow these 5 steps to lighten up your home and feel like you are living inside a winter winterland!


White Paint. You want to keep some of the rustic charm of your home to match life in the northwoods. However, consider adding some white paint to certain rooms throughout the house to freshen them up and make them appear larger. Two coats of white paint on walls, wood paneling, or hardwood floors will instantly freshen up the space.

 

Declutter. Time to go through your home and really evaluate what you need lying out on surfaces. Minimize the amount of stuff that you just have sitting out. Opening up surfaces and creating smooth lines help to lighten spaces. Buy storage pieces that also doubles as functional furniture.

 

Mirrors. Instantly open up your space by adding mirrors. Consider wall mirrors, mirrored back splashes, and glass top furniture or mirrored accessories.

 

Light Linens. Use breezy curtains and crisp white throws and blankets to feel like you are living in a cloud.

 

Some Color. To keep your home looking to sterile with all that white, add subtle shades of blue and gray throughout your decor.

Spruce up your Outdoor Living Space for Fall!

by Adam Redman

Fall in the Chain of Lakes Area cannot be beat! Crisp cool air, fiery colors of leaves, peaceful waters, and cozy sweaters are some of our favorite things about this time of year. Although this season definitely means colder temperatures in Northern Wisconsin, you can still enjoy your outdoor living spaces throughout the season. Create a cozy fall oasis outside on your deck, dock, patio, terrace, or backyard. Spruce up your outdoor living space, grab a cup of hot apple cider, and admire the stunning seasonal changes.

 

Make your dock the perfect spot to relax. Enjoy the peace and quiet on your lake by making some simple updates to your dock for the season. Add some bright red adirondack chairs, a side table, lanterns, and throw for a spot to read or reflect. Consider covering your dock with an overhang so you can sit there regardless of the weather.


Create an outdoor living or dining room. Depending on your family's needs on your outdoor space, you could create a stunning outdoor room to significantly add to your living space. Set up an outdoor living room if you want another spot for your family to gather or add a long dining room table outside to host fun dinner parties outside. Choose furniture with cushions in neutral colors that can easily transition throughout the seasons. Focus on furniture made with dark woods and metal during the fall. Since you will be spending ample time in your new room, buy furniture that is just as comfortable as your interior decor. Add pieces such as daybeds, porter's chairs, swings, sectional couches, and chaise lounges for the perfect spots to kick up your feet. Place curtains along the exterior of your new outdoor room to help keep the area warmer.


Time to decorate. Whatever space you currently have or decide to create this fall, the easiest way to spruce it up is with some easy decorations. Replace summery textiles with oranges and reds. Add a throw to keep yourself warm on those brisk nights. Choose lighting that adds ambiance, such as hanging lanterns or a chandelier. Place an outdoor rug underneath your feet to keep them warm and cozy.

 

Add some heat. Beat the cold by adding an outdoor fireplace or firepit to your outdoor living space. Make smores with your family before bed time and have a romantic spot to unwind.
