Simply Decorate Breckenridge Real Estate Ski Condominiums

Investors of Colorado real estate in Breckenridge often begin with one useful condominium. Many of the Keystone and Breckenridge condominium owners enjoy years of personal ski trips and they help recoup expenses by renting their Summit County properties or lockouts to visitors. Ski resort Breckenridge/Keystone real estate requires occasional updating to maintain property values.

Summer season is a comfortable time to get it done. Here are some ideas for redecorating a Keystone or Breckenridge home or condominium suggested by Kalyn Johnson in her Special to the Summit Daily News (05/26/2012). It is entitled “Home Trends: The future of furniture and design.” Johnson encourages readers to incorporate the classic retro style to freshen up the Summit County mountain home design.

The Home Trends article also discusses space-saving ideas. The Murphy bed and other dual-function furniture offer owners of smaller Breckenridge properties options in design and improved function. The minimalist theme moves into the closet space with the flare for style. From unique hardware and metallic colors to zebra wood and two-tone veneers, fashionable and well-organized closets make small places easier and much happier than their disheveled predecessors.

In design, possibilities are unlimited. During April 2012, the High Point Market in North Carolina presented 10-million square feet of showroom space filled with new colors, styles, and textures.

Johnson described major trends from the show.  One noticeable trend incorporates clean shapes and lines for furniture that lend a contemporary feel to the modern room. Another is a complementary retro design. They marry to create a sort of vintage swank with a “hip and funky” appeal. The new design eliminates the need to hunt for “authentic furniture pieces from the ‘60s or ‘70s that are still in good condition.” One way to pull off vintage style is incorporating patterns and contrast.

The color blue is on trend. Various hues of blue for sofas and other pieces in the living room blend effortlessly with neutrals to give a structured yet laid-back ambience. Fun patterns, contrast welting, textured fabrics, and pronounced seaming each add subtle pop to the blue color scheme.

Good news for the wallet, too. Companies are able to manufacture innovative furniture from designer-inspired vintage concepts at affordable prices.
