Arizona Homeowner July | August 2011

WELCOME TO SUMMER! And it’s not just the temperature that’s heating up around here. Metro Phoenix home sales are at a record pace with 8,000-10,000 homes sold each month over the past six months. These numbers compare favorably to what we’ve seen in some of our boom years half a decade ago. Even the struggling high-end luxury home market is seeing a marked improvement. On the flip side of things, foreclosures have also continued at a steady pace. We need buyers to buy up that excess home inventory to stabilize home values. And that’s exactly what’s been happening. Let’s hope this surge in home buying continues.

Today’s Interiors

Clean, Contemporary & Comfortable

Q: We have seen a lot of our friends and neighbors short sale their homes. Can you explain how everyone seems to be able to do short sales without any negative consequences? A: A short sale occurs when a homeowner wants to sell their home and the mortgage balance is higher than the offer price. In that instance the homeowner has to apply with the lender to get them to approve the short sale loss. Arizona has some unique anti-deficiency laws that protect some homeowners from getting sued for the loss that a first mortgage lender takes on a short sale. But whether the anti-deficiency laws protect each short sale homeowner varies greatly between one person to the next. I would definitely recommend that you contact an attorney to review the specifics of your liability before entering into a short sale contract. And short sales are considered only slightly better than a foreclosure in the eyes of mortgage lenders. As a result there is usually a 2-5 year wait before you can get a new mortgage following a short sale. And you also need to know that since a short sale will negatively impact your credit report that you will have trouble applying for new loans and credit cards for 2-3 years following a short sale. Q: I am going through a divorce and my ex is keeping our house and mortgage. I would like to buy a new home to live in. Will my old mortgage cause any problems? A: If your divorce decree states that your ex gets the house and liability for the mortgage then as long as that mortgage is current you can qualify for a new home loan. However, in an age of foreclosures and short sales you should make sure you are refinanced off of that old house. If your ex later has late mortgage payments or loses the house to foreclosure, it will impact your credit since you were a co-signor on the loan.

While the once-popular Old World, Tuscan-style of interior design continues to move out of favor in today’s homes, a look that’s modern and in-the-moment is the contemporary style. Perhaps once considered cold, stark and lifeless, the contemporary style of today is anything but. Instead, it’s fresh, clean and uncluttered with the focus on comfort. The fundamentals of a contemporary décor are clean lines, a subtle sophistication, unfussy accessories and neutral color palettes with pops of bold color as accents.

Showcasing Your Space

A contemporary décor highlights the room itself. Often windows are left bare and walls have minimal art and mirrors adorning them. The idea is to celebrate the architectural lines and structural elements of the rooms themselves. Open space is important. Avoid displaying collections or too many accessories.

Color

Color is a critical component of the contemporary style. Generally neutrals such as white, black, taupe, dove gray or beige are the main colors. Of course, you can add some drama with bright or bold color accents. Try neutral walls and furnishings combined with bold accent pillows and dramatic artwork. Or, paint one wall a bold color and use neutrals everywhere else. Black and white as a color combination continues to be timeless and elegant, as are the use of monochromatic schemes. Decorating a room with various tones of the same color is soft and soothing.

Furnishings

Think smooth, clean lines. Geometric shapes define contemporary furniture. Avoid too many curves and decoration on furniture. A bed may be a simple platform style, or have exposed legs. Generally you won’t see fussy bed skirts or tasseled pillows piled high on the bed. Headboards are uncomplicated but can make a statement in their simplicity. The use of glass, metal, stone and light wood is another key to contemporary furnishings. Fabrics are natural and textural with minimal prints. Linen, jute, silk and cotton are popular choices. Think fresh, pure and natural.

Flooring

Indeed, floors are usually kept bare. Light wood, stained concrete, even cork and bamboo can be good choices. Generally floor-to-floor carpeting doesn’t work with this style, but the use of area rugs in bold, geometric patterns (or with no pattern at all) helps to bring style, color and warmth to your space.

Lighting And Artwork

Lighting is one of the most important elements to your entire space, but often never receives the attention it deserves. Light fixtures themselves can be sculptural and serve as the artwork in your room. Use spotlights directed onto artwork and onto focal points of the room such as a dramatic architectural element. When placing artwork upon your walls, go for large, statement pieces rather than a collection of small pieces. Frames should be clean-lined in high-gloss or matte finishes. Sculptures on a stand with museum lighting can be the conversation point for your entire home. Even beautiful plants can serve as artwork. Use large and dramatic plants in simple containers. And, like your other artwork, use lighting to highlight them.

Keep In Mind

When it comes to contemporary design, just think elongated lines, basic colors and strong shapes. Less is always more. Go for structural, geometric, organic. But remember to add comfort and warmth to your spaces with rich, textural fabrics and rugs. The use of color accents will keep your room from seeming sterile and bland and will make your home as inviting as the ones you admire in home décor magazines!

Your Home

BEST BETS FOR YOUR GARDEN

Not only do the following herbs grow well indoors, they’re a great starting point for a chef’s use.

•Basil

Fresh basil paired with juicy summertime tomatoes is a bit of magic in itself. Basil loves full sun and moist, but well-drained soil.

•Rosemary

Potted rosemary is easy to grow and will survive for years. It prefers southern or western exposure and requires six hours a day of sunlight. Perfect for Arizona!

•Thyme

This hearty plant needs minimal watering and grows well in an arid, air-conditioned environment. Plus, its tiny purple flowers make for a pretty display.

•Sage

This is a great herb for drying. By the time fall rolls around, you’ll have saved enough to create scrumptious autumn-inspired dishes and perhaps even have several bundles left over for an amazing seasonal herb wreath.

•Cilantro

For the best flavor and lush, leafy foliage, growing cilantro needs plenty of sun. However, keep it shaded during the hottest part of the day. High temperatures will rush the plant into flowering, followed by seeds. Once this herb sets seeds, it will stop producing leaves.

BANANA BREAD TEMPURA Ingredients: 8 slices banana bread tempura batter as needed 4 Tbs. maple syrup 16 slices banana 4 tsp. sugar

Local Flavor!

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Chase Field, July 15th – 17th 602.514.8400 | Arizona.Diamondbacks.MLB.com Three cheers for our home team as they battle it out against the Dodgers at Chase Field. Of course, what baseball game would be complete without peanuts and Cracker Jacks? Make sure to arrive early on the 17th as the first 5000 kids 12 and under receive a free Back-to-School Backpack!

What do the nation’s top chefs name as their number-one secret to success? Using fresh, locally-grown ingredients to create dishes that capitalize on the abundant flavors from those good-quality, simple elements. As you may plan to kick your own culinary skills up a notch, your first step should be one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to take your meals from “blah” to “ahh”: cooking with herbs you’ve grown yourself. Not only is growing an indoor herb garden fairly easy, it looks really great as an addition to your kitchen décor. If you have small kids in the house, getting them involved makes for a fun summertime family project too. First, decide what herbs you’ll plant and where you’ll keep them. If you’d like to create a popular “herb bowl” with several varieties, just be sure that they all require similar amounts of sunlight and moisture. Otherwise you can plant in containers that can be separated from each other and portable so that you can move your plants around for ideal temperature control, etc. Make sure the container(s) you choose are at least 6-12 inches deep. Next, buy seeds, purchase small plants, or even ask friends for herb cuttings to get you started. Seeds are a great choice, as transplanting plants from outside can also bring unwanted pests along. Use a soilless potting mix that is light and welldraining. After you’ve planted, take care that you’re supplying your plants with the right amount of water and light. Feed once a month with fertilizer, ensuring it’s a fertilizer safe for consumable plants. Lastly, allow the plants some time to acclimate. Once you see new growth, you can start using your herbs. The more you use your herbs, the better they grow. So snip your plants often to encourage abundant, leafy results!

Finish the plate with the maple syrup and mint syrup.
