If you want to get out of the house this winter, then visit these scenic Beavercreek spots and snap some photos!

One way to get to know your new Beavercreek neighborhood might be visiting local attractions and taking pictures, either to post on social media or to curate your own photography for display. You may not have realized it when you were shopping for Beavercreek homes for sale, but your area has some diverse and photo-worthy outdoor venues. Take the family out for fun and adventures, or just take yourself,  and explore new places to walk, run, shop, dine, or get in tune with the outdoors.

Our REALTORS® are thrilled to share some of the top places to go in and around Beavercreek to snap some images.

It's a new year, and with it comes new goals and resolutions with your home. Here are some tasks you should definitely tackle this year.

People make New Year's resolutions about all manner of things, from losing weight to paying off credit cards to learning how to speak Mandarin (if you're not already a Mandarin speaker). There's something about that magical Jan. 1 date that invites us to resolve to do some special things differently as a new year beckons.

Well, how about home improvement resolutions? You've settled into your dream home from Beavercreek homes for sale, so could anything be more worthy of your time, attention, and hard work? The good news is the resolutions don't have to be expensive to implement. You can even do more than one. Resolve, for instance, to clean out the attic. That may be a big chore. But you might also resolve to do something simple, like changing your furnace filter every month.

Veganuary is a celebration of all things healthy. Here are the Beavercreek restaurants where you can try some vegan dishes.

Opting for a vegan lifestyle can be a challenge. Although veganism is growing worldwide, it can still be difficult to find vegan fare in restaurants. That means avoiding foods cooked in meat-based broths, or foods served with dairy products or even honey.

Looking for a change of pace in 2022? Shake up your design and decor with the colors of the year.

Every year, color experts and paint companies announce their top picks for the color of the year. These colors are based on trends from fashion, pop culture, technology, and design. Why should you be interested in colors of the year? These colors aren't just the same old tired shades of yesteryear. Say you want a white: colors of the year whites will astonish with nuances of white that you never dreamed possible. Same with greens, blues, browns, and more.

Get ready to paint in the house you moved into from Beavercreek homes for sale, once you check out the fabulous colors below.

  1. Very Peri
    The Pantone company, which created the Pantone Matching System for reproducing consistent colors, has released its pick for the coming year: Very Peri. Rather than picking from its current library, Pantone developed a new color, a vibrant shade of periwinkle. It has been described as blending soothing blues with exciting red shades. The company is promoting the color as "warm and joyful" and says it was designed to symbolize the world's transition out of the worst conditions of the pandemic.

    Very Peri pairs wells with lush green tones, mauve, and terra cotta in bedrooms or living rooms. Juxtapose it with pink or bright yellow for kids' rooms. You can also bring it into your color scheme through furniture, accent pieces, or painted accents.

  2. Laurel Leaf
    The dusty green of Laurel Leaf, designated color of the year from Better Homes & Gardens, calls to mind the soothing green of eucalyptus leaves. The trend to bring nature into our homes started some years ago, but it hasn't waned, and Laurel Leaf reflects that ongoing desire to surround ourselves with the natural world. 

    The warm undertones of Laurel Leaf (the first-ever paint color of the year from BH&G) go well with light wood hues, beiges, and creamy whites. Try it in a bedroom to give a calming atmosphere, or in the dining room, as a quiet backdrop of restrained color that's easy on the senses.

  3. Art and Craft 
    Dunn-Edward's' color of the year, Art and Craft, is a "soft, sophisticated brown" redolent of walnut wood, and providing a peaceful effect. Get down to earth with Art and Craft in your home and feel calmer and more stable. As Dunn-Edwards explains, this color expresses a current interior design trend that evokes back-to-nature tones for interiors.

    Described as "moody and complex," Art and Craft gives off a bohemian aesthetic of the '70s but also puts us in mind of the simpler, sustainable ethos of the cottagecore trend. Use it in dining rooms, bedrooms, and the living room. Make it come alive when set off with jewel tones such as sapphire, ruby, and emerald.

  4. October Mist
    Benjamin Moore's October Mist is another green, but this one is soft, silky, and botanical — think the pale green of flower stems. It's the foundation for BM's 2022 color trends palette, with 14 nature-inspired tones, including tinted off-whites, earth tones, and "refreshed" primary colors.

    Work with a monochromatic palette by warming up gentle October Mist with the richer, darker Gloucester Sage. Reach for a crisper look by offsetting October Mist with icy blue-green Quiet Moments or inky blue-black Mysterious.

  5. Evergreen Fog
    Sherwin-Williams has chosen a mid-tone gray-green as its 2022 color of the year, a shift away from jewel tones and neutrals that have been front and center in color trends. Evergreen Fog gives a quiet, organic look to entryways, bedrooms, and bathrooms.
