That family member who keeps mentioning Game Of Thrones… 

You’re not alone. In a Luxe interiors article, Brielle M. Ferreira explains how today’s hottest television shows encourage viewers to tune in for design inspiration and innovative interiors. Shows like Game of Thrones and House of Cards have attracted fan mail asking about particular furniture and fabrics used in the set design. A set designer’s attention to detail is a form of story telling, the set becomes an interior back drop that adds to the plot.

What story does the interior of your home tell?

Nate Berkus claims, “I think many people feel like they’re decorating with one eye over their shoulder. What do the neighbors think? Is this on trend? Will my mother approve of this color?”

We’ve all been there. There is a language to designing. It’s story telling that gives insight into who we are, or what that particular house stands for. It’s the story of where we’ve been, what we’ve seen and what we love. A home should to be inviting. It should draw us in and encourage us to create, to use our imagination.

When you notice Luxury buyers flooding to OC…

CoreLogic reported that Orange County’s median selling price is up 9.3 percent from a year ago. It’s worth noting it took nine years to beat the previous high of $645,000 set in June 2007. The soaring median selling price of early fall is not scaring off too many buyers, considering 3,365 OC residences were purchased in the period surveyed (up 7.7 % from last year).

This could be a result of RE transactions of more pricey, luxury homes rather than signifying any increase in values of individual homes. Some RE pros say this is because of a limited supply of more “affordable” level homes. Basically: The high priced, luxury market in OC is happening. We may be seeing more Teslas on the road.

Aristocracy in Orange County…
