Design Trends: Textured Bathroom Walls

Nothing adds elegance and beauty like textured walls! 3-D wall tiles are a fantastic way to make a bathroom feel more luxurious, unique and original! These wall tiles come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and styles, and can be arranged in endless combinations to create original patterns completely unique to your space.  Take a look at a few examples of this design trend below!

Recipe: Porkolt (Hungarian Stew)

Porkolt (Hungarian Stew) Made With Pork

What You Need:

  • 5 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 1/4 cup Hungarian paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 5 pounds boneless pork chops, trimmed
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, with liquid
  • 2/3 cup beef broth
  • 2 cups reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 (6 ounce) packages wide egg noodles

How To:

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain, and reserve the drippings. Add the onions to the bacon and cook together until the onion is translucent. Remove skillet from heat and stir the paprika, garlic powder, and pepper into the bacon mixture. Transfer the mixture into a large stockpot.
  2. Heat a small amount of the reserved bacon drippings in the skillet again over medium-high heat. Cook the pork chops in batches in the hot drippings until evenly browned on both sides. Use additional bacon drippings for each batch as needed. Remove the pork chops to a cutting board and blot excess fat off the surface of the chops with a paper towel; cut into bite-sized cubes and stir into the bacon mixture.
  3. Heat a small amount of the bacon drippings in the skillet; cook and stir the bell pepper in the hot drippings until softened and fragrant; drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Stir the cooked pepper into the bacon mixture.
  4. Pour the tomatoes with liquid and beef broth into a stockpot and place the pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until the stew begins to thicken, stirring occasionally, about 90 minutes. Stir the sour cream into the stew just before serving.
  5. Bring a pot with lightly-salted water and bring to a rolling boil; add the egg noodles to the water and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Ladle the stew over the drained noodles to serve.

House 2 Home Program Success Stories Part 4

We have discovered that the best way to sell a San Diego house quickly and for the best price is to turn it into a home.

We have aligned ourselves with the best in the business to do whatever it takes to prepare a house for sale and turn it into a buyer’s dream home. Whether it’s painting, replacing carpet or flooring, landscaping,cosmetic repairs, or staging, we know what to do to prepare your home to shine.

The House 2 Home Program was created as a way to showcase these seller services. Whether you’re currently still living in a home or are selling a vacant property, we will be happy to discuss our plan to prepare your home for the San Diego Market.

We’ll take you inside a few of the homes that have benefited from our House 2 Home Program. Real sellers, real homes, real measurable results. These are their stories:

Midway Street

Days on Market With Another Broker BEFORE House 2 Home: N/A

Days on Market AFTER House 2 Home: 8 Days

What We Did: We painted the exterior of the home, installed new kitchen cabinets, quartz counter-tops and appliances, painted throughout, and updated master bath counters. We also staged and finished the process with professional photos.

 

house2home22

Algonquin Court

house2home23

Days on Market With Another Broker BEFORE House 2 Home: N/A

Days on Market AFTER House 2 Home: 10 Days

What We Did: We sanded the floors, painted cabinets, did some tile work in the bathroom, staged, and took professional photos.

From the Sellers of Algonquin Ct:

“Coastal Premier Properties was simply wonderful! They brought their considerable experience in the area, and advised us wisely about when to put our home on the market, what changes to make to it in preparation, how to price it, negotiating with buyers, and on and on. Basically they did whatever they could to make the whole process painless. This was especially important because we had a short timeline and we moved out of the country. We got multiple offers within 10 days, and accepted an offer within $19,000 of our asking price.”
