It’s Going To Be A Bling Christmas With “Dancing With The Stars” Cheryl Burke

If you’re a fan of “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC, and you’re also a dedicated HGTV viewer, then last week’s holiday special featuring celebrity homes must have been nirvana for you!

But if you’re also the inquisitive type, then you must be dying to know the ‘behind the scenes’ straight talk on what went down when HGTV stylist Emily Henderson took on dancer Cheryl Burke‘s contemporary gray abode to decorate for the holidays.

A rare look at how those ‘before’ and ‘after’ shoots come together, Emily is forthright about the challenges and obstacles she faced decorating Cheryl’s bachlorette pad last August, for a holiday shoot scheduled December 7th.

Holiday decorations are hard to come by in the middle of the summer, and this production included a fair amount of ingenuity, spray paint, and determination to pull off a ‘stunner’ of a reveal.

And if you think that “Dancing With The Stars” the All Star Event was full of bling, and hot performers, then you’ll positively swoon when you see the neon pink Christmas trees, white nutcrackers, and hot pink finery sprinkled amongst Cheryl’s more masculine decor.

Emily shares her design resources, budget, and thoughts about what went right and what could have been improved upon – an insight that will endear her to viewers.

The super feminine seEmily dining roomtting seems to suit Cheryl and is a major departure from the rather cold and sterile palette of Cheryl’s home.

What’s more, it’s a great example of thinking “outside of the box” or “dancing shoes” as the case may be to create a truly original holiday showcase.

Thrift store finds, West Elm goodies, and glass cloches embrace holiday ornaments, garlands, and Christmas razzamatazz.

Black – It’s Not Just For Halloween

Think using black in decorating is scary?

Well it can be seductive, classic, playful, bold and brilliant depending upon the inventive ways you decide to use this dramatic hue!

‘House Beautiful‘ features 8 rooms that showcase black in all its glory!  From a San Francisco kitchen to an entryway that looks like it stepped off your flatscreen from one of the Kardashian homes!

I think you’ll find that the growing popularity of black is quite tempting.  And if you want to start in a small dose, horizontal stripes in a laundry room will add a lot of panache to your surroundings while you’re sorting, fluffing and folding!
Take a look at these interesting twists on some classics and let me know what you think!

Needham Real Estate: Tear Downs Make Way For New Construction

New construction and the associated tear down of older and smaller homes is alive and well in Needham.

For the eight month period from 1/1/2011 to 8/31/2011 twenty nine new construction single family homes were sold in Needham with an average sale price of $1,312,956. The 29 homes represented 14.3% of the total number of homes sold.

For the same eight month period in 2012 the number of new construction single family home sales increased by 20.7% to 35 homes. The total number of homes also increased proportionally so that new construction represented 14.8% of sales.

The average sale price of new construction homes and the corresponding per square foot price remained stable in Needham for this period.

Fast forward 30 years and at this rate, Needham may not have any smaller/older homes left to tear down.

What do you think about this trend?
