How to Incorporate Green Into Your Home – Not Just for St. Patty’s Day

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we are digging through our closets for something green to wear to avoid those people who will actually pinch if you don’t comply. Suddenly we realize either, “Wow, I forgot how much I like green!” or “Wow, green is not my color.” Whichever side of the fence you lean on, adding more green into your home can actually boost your energy! Don’t forget, just because green might not look great on you, doesn’t mean you can’t decorate with it.

Here are a few ways to incorporate green into your home that don’t scream, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Throw PillowsThrow pillows are our guilty pleasure. Every time we walk into Home Goods, World Market or Target they seem cuter and cuter each time, and for good reason. Throw pillows are a cheap, not so permanent way to add color to your home. (Pillow from TJ Maxx)



I know some of you are thinking, “Wallpaper is so 80s,” but think again. Wallpaper is making a huge comeback, but looks a lot better than we remember. You can use wallpaper to create an accent wall, or use it in small places to make a statement; it can even be customized (thank you, etsy). Grab your paste and straight-edge and put up a green, floral accent wall! (Wallpaper from Urban Outfitters)


PlantsPlants make everything better. There is more oxygen in your home, they give you someone to talk to (seriously, it’s been proven that talking to your plants helps them grow) and they’re really pretty! Get some plants and feel nature come inside your home. (Terrarium from TJ Maxx)


Accent Furniture

Velvet furniture is making a massive statement in the design world and there isn’t one color that can outperform emerald green in velvet. There is so much class in a deep green and adding an accent chair to your bedroom or living space takes your design level up a notch or two. (Sofa from World Market)



Before you think we are telling you to paint your whole house green, stop right there. Try painting your home office or den a shade of green and be sure to add in other colors and textures to get that timeless feel. You won’t regret it! 



From lamps to plates, you can implement green into any room of your home. The key for using such a bold color is to not overdo it. Have a theme, stick with it and have fun pretending to be Joanna Gaines.


If you decide to go green, send pictures of your designs to or tag @madisonprops on social media so we can see how you did it!


Be bold!

Matt Bachus (Co-Owner & Broker Associate)

I’m from the Midwest where a strong work ethic was important and, just like in Colorado, the people are down to earth and friendly. The scenery, weather and recreation are a whole lot better here though! Dedication to every detail is what you can expect from me. What I most enjoy about real estate is meeting and helping people- counseling and guiding those that I work with so the process is stress-free. I also believe everyone is a VIP- I’ll “roll out the red carpet” for each and every client whether they are buying or selling a multi-million dollar estate or their very first home. A positive attitude and the commitment to work until the job is done help me to have more fun and exceed the expectations of my clients. And while I’m always plugged into the latest technology, nothing beats a personal meeting and solid handshake.


Dana Bossert (Co-Owner & Broker Associate)

Coming from a hard-working Midwestern family, I’ve grown up with a strong work ethic and strong family values. I work hard to earn the trust of my clients and get satisfaction out of day-to-day and face-to-face contact. Being a good listener is important so I can zero in on what clients are searching for. I’ve been told I’m easy-going and not pushy- and I’m proud of that; relocating can be a stressful time for a family and I want that transition to be smooth and fun. A positive attitude helps clients to stay focused on finding the perfect home.


Alice Carmody (Co-Owner & Broker Associate)

After moving to Colorado in 1993 and working at a title company, I pursued a career in real estate. Since 1995, I have immersed myself in many aspects of real estate. I enjoy teaching as this keeps me informed on the latest legal changes. In addition, I am involved in our local and state professional standards programs. Through the years I have assisted clients and watched their goals come to fruition. I am attentive to my clients’ needs and maintain a high level of expertise. I enjoy spending time with my husband, two young boys, and dog “Guinness”, traveling and reading.

Carrie Hurich (Co-Owner & Broker Associate)

I grew up in the foothills as part of a hard-working family, where I learned the value of a strong work ethic. I began selling homes specializing in short sales and saw that selling real estate is more than a transaction, it’s about a new chapter in people’s lives. I listen carefully to my clients’ needs and work diligently to guide them to a positive, successful outcome. I’m never too busy for a phone call or, better yet a cup of coffee, to catch up and find out how I can help.

Peg Schroeder (Co-Owner & Broker Associate)

I grew up in Colorado skiing, hiking, running and being heavily involved with children in Jefferson County while my kids were in school. Every day is a great day and an opportunity to make a positive difference in home-buyers’ and home sellers’ lives. I have many friends who are past clients because I care deeply that they are happy beyond the purchase or sale of their home- my goal is to be a good listener and make the transaction a smooth part of the bigger picture: turning the page on a new chapter of their lives.


Jennifer Trinco (Co-Owner & Broker Associate)

I am a proud Colorado native, there is no place else I’d rather live! I started in real estate in 1989 as an escrow officer with a local title insurance company and then as Tupper’s Closing Coordinator, so I’ve seen it from the inside out. I saw the difference between mediocre service and sterling service and I ached to have direct contact with clients so I could provide the latter. I love helping nice people find the homes of their dreams and, in the process, making new friends and neighbors. Honored by the clients who come back and refer their friends to me, I know that I’m doing my job correctly if I make the transaction look easy and smooth. I have a background in customer service with a local title insurance company and Closing Coordinator for Tupper’s Team.

October 2018 Market Update

Happy October!

For our friends on the Denver Metro Association of Realtors Market Trends Committee, this has been the most action-packed season they have studied in quite some time. Just as we are winding down another year of low inventory and lower interest rates, something happened that many did not see coming.

In September, housing inventory continued to move higher, even though it typically decreases this time of year, and home prices dropped nearly 5%, since its record-peak highs this past May and June. A quick departure from what had become the norm, as sales of single-family homes over $500,000 dropped 33% from August to September, causing sellers some turbulence they were not braced for. Price reductions and longer days on the market are grabbing the attention of buyers who were taking a break from the buying frenzy, to now trying to find a “deal” that did not exist even a month or two ago.

More signs of cooling can be seen with months of inventory increasing to 2.33 months for single-family homes in September compared to 1.68 months the month prior and increasing to 1.93 months for condos compared to 1.48 months in August.

Going forward, expect interest rates to rise into 2019 and beyond as economic indicators stay strong, which will shelf some buyer’s opportunity to make a move. Also, look for listing inventory to find higher levels than we have seen, which could bring investors back to the table looking for fresh opportunity. The sky is most certainly not falling but things are shifting a bit back towards a balanced market.
