Bring the Spirit of Fall to your Home!

by Nancy Heim-berg

It’s that time of year! The leaves are changing color, there is a slight chill in the air and pumpkin spice lattes are back. Saturday is the official start of Fall and it may be time to spruce up your home to celebrate everyone’s favorite season. We have a few suggestions below on ways to bring the fall sprit to your home. Happy decorating!

-Freshen up the front door with festive wreaths, piles of pumpkins and bunches of potted mums and croton to give the porch a bright, fresh feel.  You can even save a bit of money by learning how to make your own ribbon rose wreath by clicking here, or a mini pumpkin wreath here.

-Add real firewood to your fireplace to give it a woodsy, cozy charm. Firewood doesn’t have to just be functional, it can also give the room a decorative fall flair. Be sure to clean off the firewood before bringing it indoors and cut any leaves or twigs that might be still attached.

-Fill gardens and window boxes with seasonal colored flowers such as pansies, ornamental cabbages and English Ivy to boost curb appeal. These blossoms are great because they can withstand the chilly winter temperatures, but also bring beauty to your front area well into the beginning of Spring.

-Bring a little coziness to the outdoors by creating a warm, welcoming space around a fire pit. Be sure to include lots of throws and pillows to really make the area inviting, and keep a large basket nearby to bring the linens inside when bad weather hits.

-A great way to bring an extra dose of coziness to your home is by incorporating candles within lanterns or using pillar candles. You can surround the pillars with festive fall décor such as candy corn, acorns or coffee beans. Just be sure to keep an eye on any burning flame to make sure it doesn’t burn too far down and become a hazard.

-Incorporate autumn hues throughout your home with layered tablecloths, gourds, fresh herbs, woodsy centerpieces, festive throws and pillows.

Redevelopment Projects Bring New Life to Omaha

by Nancy Heim-berg

For years the trendy area around downtown Omaha has been driving redevelopment efforts, drawing new businesses and residents to the area. Recently, the residential side of that development has been gaining momentum and helping to rebuild the aging neighborhoods extending past the downtown area with a younger and diverse population. For example, the 10th and 13th Streets corridors, neighborhoods known to be rooted in ethnic identity, are being transformed and developed to attract a newer population. One developer in Omaha is working towards building a batch of row houses in the area that are set to be priced around $300,000, and BlueStone Development is planning a housing community with over 200 new rental units slightly further south on the corridor. Also, just north of William Street, is the recently built Clarity’s South Hill Rowhouses of which go for between $245,000 and $405,000. The development company is so confident in the continued revival of the area that they are making plans to keep building with a similar batch of residences that will be three-stories with garages, complete with a rooftop deck. There was also a $10,000 public art grant allotted to help perk up the alleyways in hopes of reducing crime in the area. There are numerous restaurants, office buildings, banks and retail shops popping up, bringing new life and incredible commerce to the redevelopment efforts. So be sure to keep an eye on the areas surrounding downtown Omaha as it may be the next best place you call home!
