We have become more proactive and less reactionary.”--from the article within, or read it on the BIA website http://bit.ly/175dTyk.

2013 Lighting Trends

Layering, LED's, Landscaping, Traditional Fixtures...Which Does Not Belong?

September 18th is National Ceiling Fan Day, and we thought that before you breeze your way right through the holiday, we could bring you industry news and customer feedback regarding lighting design, fixture styles, and new products.  The top trend this year as reported by experts far and wide is that 2013 will be the year that LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting comes in full force to practical residential applications.  The technical and cost barriers have finally broken down, and while the quality of the light emitted by these diodes has improved, here is a word of wisdom from a local home inspector:

Homeowners should look for Energy Star rated LED bulbs, which have been tested to meet EPA standards of color quality and consistency, energy efficiency, and stable performance. Inferior products may make a lot of promises but may not deliver. By replacing the bulbs in their most-used and hard-to-reach fixtures, homeowners can start saving energy - and money - right now..

Tuckerman School Districts Make The Grade

Looking for a great home in one of Central Ohio's best school districts?

"Public schools and districts in Ohio this year received letter grades -- A through F -- based on students' success last year.  The revamped report-card system is, in some ways, more complex than in previous years.  The state won't issue overall grades until 2015.  Until then (this) is what the state uses to determine a school's grade: Achievement, Graduation, Value-Added Features, Gap Closing." --The Dispatch, Friday August 23, 2013.  Please enjoy the glowing report details on the Olentangy, Bexley, Gahanna-Jefferson, and New Albany-Plain school districts within this post.

The Yorkshire

Exclusively at the New Albany Country Club

I beleive this is our finest floorplan within the category of homes featuring a first floor master suite.  What makes it unique is the combination of a completely Georgian country home exterior with a floorplan built for entertainment and family living.  Its layout and flow does not quite approach those of strict utility; quite the contrary, its conveniences are added bonuses, tastefully complementing an already stately home.  Consider, for example, the powder room off of the drop zone adjacent to the garage.  The outdoor courtyard that empties off of the breakfast and great room.  The private staircase, in lieu of a grand stair hall.  The coat, linen, and walk-in-closets.  This is a home for the good life in 2013.  Continued...
