It’s now 2017, which means one thing: It’s time to discuss which home decor trends will define the year.
On the color front, sophisticated hues are poised to take center stage, according to Behr, which has predictions for colors to keep an eye on in 2017. The paint company has divided its selections into three palettes — Confident, Composed, and Comfortable — and if they are any indication, we’ll be drawing decor inspiration from our personalities in the year ahead.

PALISADES PARK, NJ – The year-end has brought an exciting new start for many who have already began the process of purchasing a home when the calendar flipped to 2017.
Buyers from throughout Bergen County and beyond are soon to be enjoying the many advantages of making homeownership a main New Year’s resolution, highlighted by a fresh and exhilarating new lifestyle and a strong sense of pride. Outside lifestyle benefits and personal fulfillment, there’s a long list of practical and financial reasons why the New Year is a perfect time to purchase.
Traditionally, the buying market slows during cold and wintery weather, creating less competition for homes and providing a greater range of choices at the start of the New Year.
This is a considerable factor in areas such as Bergen County where inventory for new for-sale homes is limited. As spring inches closer and temperatures and the market heat up, the pool of prospects grows and the buying process becomes more aggressive.
“Many of our recent buyers want to get a jump by purchasing now,” says Brandon Ochs, Sales Representative for The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and sales agent at Trio, a collection of upscale condominiums in Palisades Park. “They’re motivated to achieve the significant life milestone of homeownership in the New Year and want to ensure they receive the exact residence and lifestyle they’ve always dreamed of.”
Fiscally savvy homebuyers also want take advantage of tax deductions, stability of real estate investment and beginning building equity in their home as soon as possible. Better yet, there’s often many special incentives offered on new homes that provide additional savings and create value. Continue reading

via Marquerite Preston at The Wirecutter – Like a lot of people, I’ve given the gift of alcohol many times. Sometimes it’s the gift of last resort: the bottle of wine I buy on the way to a party, the bottle of whiskey for that one person who really has me stumped this year. Alcohol is an easy present to give anyone who drinks because it’s guaranteed to be used, guaranteed to be enjoyed. But for the right person—the wine connoisseur, the beer geek, the cocktail enthusiast—the gift of booze (or something booze-related) can also be exciting and special.
Here are the boozy gifts we’d be excited to give—and get—all offering a little something more than the basic bottle of wine, or, for that matter, any of the practical gear we spend all year testing. We’ve included the best spirits your loved ones may never have tried, the best books to expand their drinking horizons, and the gear to make every cocktail hour feel like a special occasion.
This list comes backed by the pros. I asked for advice from five experts in the world of drinks and drinking: Talia Baiocchi, Joshua M. Bernstein, Martin Cate, Jeffrey Morgenthaler, and Ann Tuennerman. Baiocchi is the editor-in-chief of the online magazine Punch and the author, with Leslie Pariseau, of the cocktail book Spritz; Bernstein is a beer and spirits writer, and the author most recently of the book Complete IPA; Cate is the owner of San Francisco’s renowned tiki bar, Smuggler’s Cove, and the author of a book by the same name; Morgenthaler is a cocktail writer, author of The Bar Book, and bar manager at Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon; Tuennerman is the founder of Tales of the Cocktail, a world-renowned series of cocktail festivals. Everything here is something one (or more) of them recommended, and sure to please even the most discerning of drinkers.
The holidays are upon us, which means it’s time to brush up on your etiquette and rules for best behavior during this season of events and gatherings. There’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing you presented yourself well as a host or guest. Fortunately, we’re sharing advice on everything from attending the office party to hosting your own holiday shindig to giving memorable gifts. Read on for 20 practical tips you can use for this holiday season!
A timely holiday invitation should always be sent at least a month prior to the event. If the event is more formal, plan on sending out invitations up to two months in advance. The invitation should include specific details about the celebration, such as the date, time and location as well as the dress code, if any. If your party is an adults-only occasion, avoid using the phrase, “no kids,” and opt for a friendlier approach that lists the names of the guests you intend to invite. Most importantly, include an RSVP date for recipients to respond. This will give you a headcount prior to the party to create a menu that serves everyone attending. If you are a guest, make it a priority to RSVP as soon as you know you can or cannot attend. Avoid missing the RSVP date by setting a reminder on your calendar.
