There are those that simply cannot live without the latest and greatest tech gadgets, while others live life very minimally. Case in point, my husband and I are very simple people and when we purchased our first home last year, we were in awe...and a bit nervous...about all the technology in our new home.

From the nest thermostats to the iPhone operable under cabinet lighting, to the video doorbell, the Philips Hue lightbulbs & the bathroom vent with bluetooth connection to name a few, not only did we need to learn how to become homeowners, we needed to figure out things that would normally be simple tasks such as, turning on the lights & heating our home...dear god, I miss the 80's!!

What is Radon? 

Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes throughout the United States - especially in North GA due to the proximity to Stone Mountain. Like carbon monoxide, radon is colorless and odorless. And, typically moves up through the ground, into the air and into our homes through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water.

 Cobb, Dekalb, Fulton and Gwinnett counties have been found to have some of the highest elevated levels of radon gas in the entire state. (Sure Thing Home Inspections)

One of my favorite things about the New Year is to see what professional interior designers will predict to be the 'hottest trends' in the coming year. They look at colors, finishes, fixtures, furniture styles...and they ALL have a different opinion!

What one designer says is "so over in 2019" another may say "it's still hot and heavy in our market!"

Conclusion: go with what YOU love!
