“Since folks are open to reimagining what Christmas can look like, we’ll continue to see a looser interpretation of the traditional tree,� says Catie Parrish, associate editor at Wayfair, the online home furnishings outlet. “We’re starting to see lots of paper and cardboard tabletop trees, and people are getting inventive, creating flat Christmas trees on walls, doors and even fridges. They’re even decorating them with real ornaments and garlands. For someone who craves the charm of a real tree, even an evergreen branch in a mason jar can lend a hint of the holidays.� Ikea has a pop-up cardboard tree that comes with ornaments. At Ellesstudio.blogspot. com, you’ll find simple instructions on how to turn wine corks, wooden sticks, colored paper and glitter into pretty little trees.

Front door colors set to go exhuberant Contributed to the Telegram

MAUMEE, OHIO – Raucous Orange. Quixotic Plum. Relic Bronze. These are just some of the bold colors that national color expert Kate Smith predicts will be most popular on residential door exteriors in 2014. “There are two trends I see influencing front door colors for 2014,� says Smith, chief color maven and president of Sensational Color. “First, there’s the trend of people painting their doors with exuberant hues as a way of telling the world they’re tired of spinning their wheels in place. These people are ready to move forward, embrace challenges and show their energy through vibrant colors like Capri blue and Dynamo raspberry. “The other trend is that some people are seeking colors that are vibrant yet at the same time connect us to a sense of community and culture. These simpler colors, like Classic French Gray and Polished Mahogany, give us comfort, warmth and reliability, which are

found in these rich paint colors.� For homeowners looking to express their “colorful self,� Smith recommends selecting paintable doors. “These smoothfinish doors are ideal for adding personal expression to a home,� says Smith. “They feature clean lines, crisp angles and attractive glass configuration options. By painting the doors in unique colors to match the homeowner’s personality, people can really make a statement with these durable doors.� Top 10 Door Colors for 2014 Smith has identified ten colors from Sherwin Williams paint colors as those she predicts will gain popularity in 2014 and match up with the “exuberant homeowner� trend: O Capri - A tropical blue that wakes up natural woods and neutral surroundings, this color adds a splash of energy on the door for a home. O Raucous Orange - True to its name, this vibrant color demands attention with its energetic orange tone and makes the perfect

punctuation point for the front of a home with a modern look. O Dynamo - This flirty violet hue instantly updates a traditional color scheme on a home exterior to a trendier home front. O Relic Bronze - A deep, almost brown mustard color, Relic Bronze reflects aged beauty on a home that shows up in unexpected exterior element combinations. O Quixotic Plum - This sophisticated deep purple breaks out of its noble bonds in 2014 to dance along the edge of where trendy meets timeless as it graces the front entry of homes. The remaining top five door colors that follow the trend of “community and culture� identified by Smith include: O Georgian Bay - Brighter and more moving than dark navy, this step-above reserved blue is a trusted color when it comes to the welcoming message it sends on a door to family and friends. O Show Stopper - Like classic red at dusk, Show Stopper adds a touch of mystery to this bright

hue. A slight spin on traditional red, this color warmly welcomes people to a home. O Polished Mahogany - The deep, rich shade of this brown color has a staying power that traverses trends and captures a solid feeling for homeowners. O Classic French Grey - Stepping out of the shadows to stand on its own, this cool, neutral grey will continue to rule the palette in 2014. O Gulfstream - This bright, modern blue has an of-the-moment appeal. At the same time, it still feels rooted in something familiar and nostalgic for homeowners. Smith, a career color trend forecaster who recently authored the free e-book, “FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior� recommends working from the “top down� when adding color to the home. “The door is critical when adding color to the home, but you want to start with your roof color, then work down to the siding, windows, door and trim colors,�

Painting your front door a new color can give your home a new look for 2014.

says Smith. “Everything should combine in an eye-pleasing palette that allows the exterior colors of the home to flow naturally, creating curb appeal and lasting value.�

Rate on 30-year loan rises WASHINGTON (AP) – Average U.S. rates for fixed mortgages rose sharply this week, making home-buying slightly less affordable. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on the 30-year loan jumped to 4.46 percent from 4.29 percent last week. The average on the 15-year fixed loan increased to 3.47 percent from 3.30 percent. Rates have risen a full percentage point since May after the Federal Reserve signaled it might slow its bond purchases by year’s end. Rates peaked at 4.6 percent in August. Mortgage rates have stabilized since September, when the Fed surprised markets by taking no action. And rates remain low by historical standards. The Fed meets later this month

and could slow the bond purchases if the economy shows further improvement. The bond purchases are designed to keep long-term rates low. The increase in mortgage rates has contributed to a slowdown in home sales over the past two months. But the government reported Wednesday that purchases of new homes ramped up in October after three months of soft sales, evidence that the housing market is improving fitfully. Sales of new homes increased 25.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 444,000 in October, the largest monthly percentage increase since May 1980. And in another sign of potential economic strength, the Commerce

Department said Thursday the economy grew at a 3.6 percent annual rate from July through September, the fastest since early 2012. But nearly half the growth came from a buildup in business stockpiles, a trend that could reverse in the current quarter and hold back growth. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country on Monday through Wednesday each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage fell to 0.5 point from 0.7 point. The fee for a 15-year loan dropped to 0.4 point.
