10 tips for stunning vignettes

Cathy Hobbs

Tribune News Service The successful decoration of a space often hinges on the proper selection of the appropriate accents and accessories. Often this is greatly influenced by not only what pieces are selected, but how various objects are placed or grouped together. Enter the vignette. Vignettes are groupings of objects that look harmonious and appealing when placed together and help to enhance the overall look and feel of a space. When looking to create vignettes, there are some key tips to keep in mind.

A blend of low and high objects as well as a black, white and gold color palette adds creative vignette for large coffee tables.

E4

1. Create a vignette upon entry. A foyer or entry vestibule is the perfect place to place an appealing and welcoming vignette that can also serve to introduce the overall style of a home. 2. Look for objects that are of varying heights. This will help add interest for the eye. 3. Consider using items that add a sense of contrast, such as placing black and white objects together. 4. Create sets of vignettes on longer surfaces.

SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS REAL ESTATE

5. Build a vignette around an inspirational or dynamic piece. In other words, select an object that may be a focal point and then choose other items that will be complementary. 6. Place vignettes on larger surfaces such as consoles, sideboards and coffee tables, as opposed to smaller surfaces such as side tables to avoid crowding a surface. 7. Incorporate greenery whenever possible. Add blooms for more color and texture. 8. Consider incorporating finishes into the colors of your vignettes such as brass or silver. 9. Pair objects of similar colors together, such as a vignette of mostly black objects. 10. Look for ways to create a wow factor with unique or unexpected pieces.

HOA Homefront

Border Protection – Roles and Boundaries of HOA Team Members By Kelly G. Richardson, Esq. CCAL For many years, advising associations was at times very stressful, as boards would sometimes disregard my best advice for them. However, a defining moment in my HOA law career was when I realized that my role is to tell the board the truth and provide to them my best advice, butcompelling the board to follow my advice was not my responsibility. Once I had better understanding of my role, things became less stressful.Each member of the HOA team has its own boundary, and each team member staying within that role helps the entire HOA team. Managers – Managerstake action managing the association, carrying out board directions and providing important advice helping boards operate within the Business Judgment Rule. Managers do not make decisions, except those specifically assigned to them by the board. Boards – Theboard decides things but doesn’timplement its decisions. The Board provides direction to management and approves contracts with other HOA vendors. Boards should not co-manage the HOA, but should allow the managerto carry out the board’s directives. Boards normally don’t oversee vendors - that is what you pay management to do. Vendors - Service providers (including managers) should perform their contract and avoid HOA politics. Endorsing or opposing board candidates is outside their role and is unethical - they must stay neutral. Officers – in HOAs, individual officers (even Presidents) have little power. Everything they do is only upon the express authorization of the board. HOA officers occasionally confuse their limited non-profit role with the more powerful role given officers in for-profit corporations. Individual Directors- A single director has no power except the power to cast a vote on board decisions-the power rests in

the board. Well-intentioned directors can usurp the board’s role by acting without board authority; usually justifying it by claiming action was needed. But the wellintentioned director becomes a “renegade” by taking actions, which is reserved for the board, such as instructing the manager or other vendors, or making contractualcommitmentsfor the association. Committees – Except for architectural committees, most committees are advisory to the board and do not act. Committees typically are assigned an ongoing important subject, and advise the board by issuing “reports,” hopefully written, suggesting certain board actions. Committees do not make commitments to association vendors, and their meetings are less formal. Boardsshould avoid doing committee work in the board meetings, just as the committee avoids doing board work. Committee Members – A committee member should be part of a team. However, sometimes extremely interested and active committee members step outside their role by speaking for the committee when the committee has not met. A committee of one is not a committee! Individual Homeowners –The governing documents list certain matters that are subject to membership vote where individual homeowners can participate. Beyond these, let the board handle things because they are legally responsible. Nondirectors should not participate in board discussions except for open forum input. Another common homeowner boundary issue arises when homeowners instruct HOA vendors, but that is the manager’s role. One of the great benefits of association living is that the board, manager, and vendors handle many community matters – so let them! Check YOUR boundaries, and stay within your proper role. When everyone does THEIR job and allows others to do theirs, the HOA wins.

SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS REAL ESTATE

A note from the SBAOR President By Brian Johnson President of the Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS®

Santa Barbara Office Market Declines in Third Quarter Last year saw a steep decline in leasing activity across all markets in our area but we were seeing the office sector rebound quite nicely through the first half of 2021. However, that demand has slowed in the 3rd quarter, due mainly to the rise of the Delta variant of COVID-19. There were a number of companies planning to bring their workforces back into the office that postponed those plans until early 2022. This led to a decline in the number and size of leases. Where Santa Barbara had seen office absorption in the 60,000 to 70,000 SF range over the last three quarters we saw less than 40,000 SF of absorption this quarter. Goleta also saw a drop in leasing activity this quarter down to approximately 45,000 SF. Carpinteria actually saw a nice uptick in their leasing activity but since the market is so small even a few leases can cause big swings in vacancy rates. These declines were evident on the average lease rate for leased office spaces as well. Santa Barbara had been seeing average lease rates in the $3.10 to $3.25 per square foot range for the first two quarters of this year but the 3rd quarter saw that average achieved lease rate drop to $2.62 per square foot. The primary contributor to this is probably and due to the majority of the leasing activity happening in the B and C class of properties and not commercial property owners discounting their properties more. The vacancy rate for office in Santa Barbara declined ever so slight to 10.4% but Goleta’s office vacancy rate actually rose to 6.9%. Neither saw much change in the average asking rate for their respective markets, giving additional evidence to the idea that property owners are not making large discounts to their asking prices. While these vacancy rates may not seem high compared to other markets around the country, Santa Barbara’s office vacancy rate generally ranges from 5% to 7% most years. Goleta is actually doing quite well compared to Santa Barbara right now due to companies having more choice of buildings with larger office floor plans so they can better plan for the new office environment. Given how California has handled the latest surge I believe that the office market will pick back up towards the end of this year. Vaccination rates continue to rise and positive cases have been falling as of late. We should see a stronger 4th quarter and 2022 is expected to be a strong year for leasing as more and more workers return to the office. While I do not expect the “Office is Dead” headline to go away anytime soon I am confident that the office sector will come back in new and better ways.

The power of pale hues

Pale pink is used in a living space to help create a gender neutral decorative element. Photos courtesy Scott Gabriel Morris/Handout/TNS

Cathy Hobbs

Tribune News Service From pastel pinks to powder blues and soft silver, incorporating pale hues can be the perfect color palette to add soft, soothing elements into your space. While bright, bold colors can help energize, pale hues can help create an element of calm. When looking for opportunities to incorporate soothing, pale hues, here are some decorating tips that can help lead to a successful space.

Soft hues help to make a room with hard tile floors soft and inviting.

Monochromatic color palettes Tone on tone is one of the best ways to create a soothing color palette. Consider using tints, tones and shades of the same color. Artwork Artwork is a key element you can use to incorporate color. Artwork incorporating pale hues is more universal and neutral without dominating a space or potentially clashing with other colors or decorative elements.

Two is better than one

Twin beds are not just for kids -- there is a plethora of styles that can add a sophisticated touch to your existing decor.

Twin beds are perfect for accommodating all types of visitors.

Photos courtesy Handout/TNS

By Katie Laughridge I’ve had something to say for a while. I have been nervous to share, not knowing what the response would be, but here it goes: Trade in your guest room double bed for a pair of twins. I know I know, what am I talking about? I wasn’t sure myself at first, but over the last year, I have been falling in love with daybeds and twin bed frames, and now I can’t get enough. Have you ever had something stuck in your head, and suddenly you start seeing it everywhere? As I was flipping through Hulu the other week, I came across “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” My love of “Mary Poppins” — and his part in particular — had me tuning into the show, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. Twin beds! I knew it was fate (and of course 1961 sensor laws) that had me positive it was a sign twin beds are not only the past but the future. I am not telling you and your spouse to hop into separate twins — though sometimes with my husband’s snoring, a girl can be tempted — but twin beds are a trendy and versatile way to spruce up a spare bedroom.

Twin beds are perfect for accommodating all types of visitors. Whether it is a couple of friends who took advantage of wine night, my son’s best friends or my nieces and nephews coming for a sleepover, they have the perfect spot to rest their weary heads. Sometimes it is hard to know the dynamics of visitors, and having separate places to snooze eliminates any potential awkwardness. Not only are twin beds functional, they can also open up your room and add style to your space. Twin beds are not just for kids — many styles can add a sophisticated touch to your existing decor. While the options we’re showcasing in this post are wood or metal, some fabulous upholstered options give you one more way to add in another textile and pattern. Plus, this pretty adjustment leaves plenty of room for that cute table or chest you’ve been wanting to display. Adapted from nellhills.com.

Superbena Imperial Blue verbena quenches your thirst for this treasured color

1 Norman Winter

Tribune News Service No color stirs the passion in serious gardeners like blue. Sure, we like orange, yellow, red and pink, but blue is the must-have color for mixed containers and baskets. It is like having sapphires in our pocket plantings by the front entrance to the home. It is for this reason The Garden Guy was eager to put Superbena Imperial Blue verbena to the test. Not only did I parse out my supply of Imperial Blue to various baskets and containers, but I gave some to my son, James, the guru of all things color, in the commercial landscape. As usual, he beat me like a drum in design, but I’m used to it. Superbena Imperial Blue will arrive at your garden center in spring 2022. So put on your stealth camo and be ready. I expect (as usual) there will not be enough to go around for all who want this new verbena. There is a reason it is called Imperial. It is nothing short of intense in color. It’s the blue that makes your heart race. If you have not tried Superbena verbenas, you

need to get on the train. I am in my third year with Superbena Stormburst, and the best white on the planet, Superbena Whiteout. Despite all the other butterfly plants I have in my garden, the Superbenas seem to always be attracting attention — not just from butterflies, but hummingbirds, too. Like most of the other Superbenas, Superbena Imperial Blue will get 5 to 12 inches tall with a spread of 30 inches. They need fertile, well-drained soil and plenty of sunlight to reach their true performance potential. For the most part, Superbenas are considered an annual, one certainly of exceptional value. I live in zone 8a, and in my zone and warmer we may just get them to return in the spring, which prompts a breakout of the perennial happy dance. The caveat is good soil drainage. James and I also believe in cutting the verbena back periodically to keep rejuvenating growth and new blooms coming. It also helps to minimize chances for spider mite infestations. In my baskets and containers I partnered Superbena Imperial Blue verbena with other new plants

Real Estate Q&A:

Can condo owners refuse to pay special assessment? By Gary M. Singer Question: Despite the struggling economy, our condo passed a significant special assessment to repair the roof. Many residents cannot afford to pay this. What would happen if a couple of dozen of us refused to pay? – Suzanne Answer: When a community association, whether a condominium or homeowners association, does not have enough funds from the regular dues to pay for a necessary repair, it can levy a special assessment. Special assessments usually occur when there is an unexpected problem or insufficient reserves to cover the cost of a regular renovation, such as replacing the roof. Special assessments are passed by a vote following the rules set out in the community’s documents and state law. This is another reason to be involved, pay attention to what you get in the mail, and attend board meetings. Homeowners who live in a community association who do not pay their regular or special assessments can be sued by their association for a money judgment and can even have their home foreclosed, with the proceeds used to pay the debt. The amount due can be quite a bit more

than just the unpaid dues and will include attorney fees, court costs, interest, and administrative expenses. I have seen many cases in which the collection costs far outweigh the unpaid assessments. Not paying your regular or special assessments is a severe matter and quickly leads to losing your home. If you receive an invoice you disagree with, immediately contact your property manager to discuss the charge. If it is not corrected in writing, you should pay the contested balance before continuing to fight the charge. This will stop additional costs from accruing, causing the problem to spiral bigger and bigger. Once the invoice is paid under protest, you can try to have the charge removed from your account without digging yourself into a hole if you were incorrect. Gary M.

Question: Ed: I live in the country and want to bring some outdoor themes into my bathroom remodeling project. I plan to install a large skylight and have lots of custom cut teakwood trim accents. Do you have any naturallooking fixture ideas for me? — Bob, Indiana

Answer: From what I’ve seen, open floor plans and naturalthemed artist edition plumbing fixtures can add a nice outdoor feel to any bathroom. Here are a few fixture install ideas. For the shower, design a custom walk-in shower stall with a full glass enclosure and a natural stone base. A space-saving toilet area featuring a wall hung bowl with a concealed in-wall tank can also keep the open room theme flowing. Finally, for the fixture finale, an artist edition vessel-type bathroom sink can steal the show. I suggest one of the new floral print wading pool sinks. These dramatic vessel sinks feature brightly painted flowers set against a jet black background. Bottom line: Just like the great outdoors, if you start with an open air environment, then add some fresh flowers, you can make your new country bathroom bloom with beauty.

coming out in 2022 like Boldly Coral geranium and Supertunia Vista Jazzberry petunia. James, on the other hand, created dazzling horse troughs, partnering the Imperial Blue with Superbena Whiteout, Supertunia Bordeaux, Luscious Bananarama lantana and the new Suncredible Saturn bush sunflower, also debuting in 2022. From a pollinator standpoint, it has really been incredible. Eastern tiger swallowtails, spicebush swallowtails and pipevine swallowtails have all found Superbena Imperial Blue to be a regular feeding location. But smaller butterflies like the American lady also make frequent visits. I suppose the most exciting of all is seeing the ruby-throated hummingbirds make visits. Make sure you try the Superbenas in baskets — I think the off-the-ground aspect plus cascading flowers are a natural attraction for the hummers.

How should I clean for houseguests?

ometimes you have fair warning when guests are coming over, such as for major holiday events. Other times people drop in with little or no warning. Whatever the case, you want your home to make the best impression. If you’re short on time, here are some tips on how to quickly prep your home for maximum comfort and give your guests a great experience. Fear not — you can accomplish quite a bit of cleaning in a short amount of time if need be! • Walk through your house and think like a visitor. What are the things you notice first that might not look so great? Pay special attention to common areas, guest bedrooms and bathrooms. • Prioritize what needs to be cleaned first. You can always close the door to your home office, your own bedroom and other areas guests aren’t likely to wander. • Be aware of your guest’s needs. For instance, if they have allergies to particular scents, avoid cleaning materials that use them. • Wash all the bedding and other linens in the guest rooms. • Wipe down commonly touched surfaces such as countertops, doorknobs and light switches. For the best results to get rid of germs and viruses, use a two-step process. Clean with soap and water first, then disinfect using a bleach or alcohol solution. Store-bought alcohol wipes are good for the second step. • Give your oven and refrigerator a good cleaning. The oven will probably get a lot of use, so you want to make sure it’s in the best order. Remove all outdated food from your fridge to make room for leftovers. • Check all your bulbs, indoors and out. Sometimes it’s easy not to notice a burned-out bulb in an area you can walk through with your eyes closed, but your guests won’t have that familiarity.

sure soap, towels, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer are available. Stock the cabinet and sink with commonly used items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, disposable razors, feminine products, allergy medication, over-

the-counter painkillers or cotton swabs. Leave room for your guest’s stuff. An empty, flat surface will be perfect for their own toiletries. If you lack the time yourself, you can always hire a professional housecleaner for the job. Housecleaning services cost between $40 and $80 per hour, per cleaner, and the average one-time job runs between $150 and $200. Keep in mind you might have a hard time getting a housecleaner on short notice if you don’t have an existing relationship with one, and could pay a premium for same-day scheduling. ©2021 Ask Angi.

Prep the bathroom

You want your bathroom(s) in particular to give your guests a good impression. Give each bathroom they might use a good wipe-down, particularly the toilet, shower basin, sink, floor and fixtures. Make sure the supplies are up to date. Clean expired medicine from the cabinet. Make
