How to Sell a Home with a Notorious Past

“Hauntingly beautiful 1920’s concrete block mansion features period details on wrought iron gates and in perforated blocks. Plenty of room for invited and unexpected guests. Guaranteed to surprise and exhilarate. Interested parties, please contact F. Loren.”

If you’ve ever seen 1959’s classic The House on Haunted Hill starring Vincent Price, you may recognize the home in question. Ennis House, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s final masterpieces, was featured in the exterior shots of this movie as well as others. The movie’s plot features an eccentric millionaire who challenges guests to stay the night in his haunted mansion for $10,000 each and then turns the tails on his wife and her lover’s plot to murder him before the final credits roll.

New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2015

Every New Year’s Eve, the show to watch is Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rocking Eve on ABC. This year’s show will be filled with amazing live entertainment and will feature performances from coast to coast as everyone dances the night away into a New Year. 

History of the Event

It started back in 1972 with Dick Clark as a reporter out in the city for the first show. He became the official presenter in 1974, taking only one year off in 2005 before his passing in 2012. Regis Philbin hosted the show in 2005, and Ryan Seacrest took over when he was added alongside Dick Clark as a co-host in 2006. Ryan is now the sole host. The presenters are from coast to coast with locations in Times Square and New York City, New York and Hollywood, California. This year it will even feature a few acts in Nashville.

Creative Ways to Promote Your Business during the Holidays

Black Friday has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of your sales season. You can still spread seasonal cheer and promote your business in a way that fosters connection with your customers. Try these creative methods to increase the visibility of your business this holiday season. 

Deck the Halls

Nothing says warm and homey like Christmas greenery or sparkling snowflakes. Take the time to sprinkle fun decorations around your store. A shop specializing in rustic decor might hang snowflakes from the ceiling at varied heights with monofilament thread. An upscale boutique might opt for low dishes filled with different sizes, colors and finishes of glass ball ornaments. Whatever your decor or color scheme, make the effort. You’ll benefit from the celebratory atmosphere and from the shoppers who are drawn to your door.

Creative Ways to Use Under Stairs Space

Creative Ways to Use Under Stairs Space

Stairwells and the space beneath them often go unused. The lack of square footage and uneven shape make utilization a challenge. However, using this space resourcefully isn’t impossible. Much depends upon the size and location of your stairs. Check out the following design ideas that you can use as inspiration for your own below-stairs space.


If your stairwell leads to a basement level or ground floor, there are a number of options that are ideal for a tucked-away corner of the house.

-Ground-insulated walls maintain a temperate environment. Wine aficionados will find this an ideal place to store their collections. Go low-tech industrial with rough wooden blocks and wide wire mesh, or ultra-classy with stained wood, inset lighting, and glass doors.

-Who couldn’t use more storage? Drawers in a variety of sizes can be custom made to fit your space and blend seamlessly with the surrounding decor. With taller flights of stairs, you may even opt for a drawer/closet combo.
