We know dads are difficult to shop for.

And although most patriarchs pretend they don’t care about Father’s Day, don’t let their tough exterior fool you! Honoring Dad this Father’s Day—with all his qualities and quirks—is more important than ever.

Over the past year, dads have had to do everything from home-schooling to home maintenance to keeping the family afloat. But in any precious down time during the COVID-19 pandemic, we bet he picked up a hobby or two. Maybe he built a movie theater in your backyard shed or tuned up that old car sitting in the garage. Whatever his fancy, there’s a Father’s Day gift out there that’ll help him carry on his newfound hobby.

It’s down to the wire, but if you’re still stumped on what to get Dad this Father’s Day, we have some good ideas that are sure to solidify your status as the apple of his eye.

1. If he got into gardening

Maybe he never really had a green thumb to begin with, but hey, we all learn eventually. And Dad isn’t one to give up—on anything. So keep the momentum going, and add a handy tool to his arsenal for garden upkeep.

This garden nut gatherer ($79.95, Amazon) can help him easily pick up everything from fallen nuts to sweet gum balls. It works by rolling over and capturing debris and comes with a basket, bale, and sturdy handle.

2. If he made his own sourdough starter

Sourdough was the real rising star during the pandemic. If your dad guards his precious starter like a newborn, we have just the gift.

True connoisseurs know making a quality sourdough takes time, with special attention to details like flavor, texture, crumb, and crust.

Let Dad show he’s a savant at making sourdough with a 16-inch pizza stone ($69.95, Williams Sonoma). With this in his arsenal, we know his dough will lead to perfectly crispy crusts. This stone can be fired up in the oven or on the grill, and is dishwasher-safe.

3. If he joined the cult of Peloton

Many people swear the Peloton got them through the pandemic. And if your dad has sweated through a HIIT ride, give him and his tired muscles the gift of relief with the Theragun massage device ($390.99, Target). This quiet and smart percussive therapy device will work to melt away tension and release soreness.

4. If he rediscovered his love of painting

Jerry’s Artarama

He’s no Picasso but Dad sure loves to paint—and not just the house.

Let him channel his inner Bob Ross with a new set of brushes ($110, Jerry’s Artarama). These synthetic hog hair brushes are perfect for acrylic painting and easy to clean. He can use them with oils, acrylics, inks, dyes, gouache, watercolor, casein, and egg tempera.

Let Dad go crazy, while following Ross’ mantra: “We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.”

5. If he loves DIY home improvement

Let’s face it: Dads are the kings of DIY home improvement. To ensure Pops accomplishes all his home improvement projects without tripping over an extension cord, gift him a retractable extension cord ($82.99, Amazon). This handy extension quickly and easily coils out of the way. The heavy-duty electric cord reel power station comes with a 50-foot extension cord.

6. If he’s now a birder

Though humans spent most of the past year on lock-down, birds had no such concerns.

And with our heightened appreciation of the outdoors came an increased interest in birdwatching. Take your father’s love of birding to new horizons with the Sibley Birds field guide app ($19.99, Apple App Store).

This paperless guide includes comprehensive, up-to-date information on over 930 North American species. It features over 2,700 calls and songs, identifies how common a particular bird might be, and allows Dad to keep a list of the birds he’s spotted.

5 of the Most Searched Outdoor Decor Trends of Summer 2021

We’ve got the hottest outdoor designs of the season—with the data to back it up—and, of course, the scoop on how you can re-create the looks in your space.

The post 5 of the Most Searched Outdoor Decor Trends of Summer 2021 appeared first on Real Estate News & Insights | realtor.com®.

Even with the outside world opening back up, many of us have found new comfort in staying at home. Backyard dinner parties, outdoor movie nights, drinks on the deck—you name it, there are so many summertime favorites that really don’t require going anywhere, especially if you have a great outdoor space.

And if you don’t? Well, we’re here to help with that.

To get a little inspiration for making your backyard into an oasis you actually won’t want to leave this summer, we once again consulted with the pros at design retailer Living Spaces. They gave us the scoop on the most searched outdoor decor and design ideas of the season, and we’re here to share a few of our favorites.

Here are five absolute must-haves in your outdoor space this summer, and all the details on where to get them.

1. Indoor-outdoor spaces

One of the best ways to make your outdoor spaces feel irresistibly cozy this season is by making them feel like they’re inside. Think: decor features such as extra throw pillows, blankets, and even some of your living room furniture (all approved for outdoor wear and tear, of course).

But don’t just take our word for it. According to a recent Google report, “indoor-outdoor spaces” is one of the most significantly searched trends of the season, and it’s seen a 155.56% increase in popularity from last year.

“Indoor-outdoor living spaces—adding comfy sofas and coffee tables to the backyard—became an easy solution to those feelings of being cooped up during quarantine,” says Living Spaces designer Shelby Greene.

“2020 was all about finding comfort in trying times, and when it comes to the outdoors, comforting pieces are here to stay,” adds Greene.

2. Concrete furniture

One outdoor trend we didn’t see coming this season is the draw toward concrete furniture, up nearly 7% in recent months, according to the folks at Living Spaces.

“There’s something minimalist about concrete furniture,” says Greene. “There’s only one texture and color, and the shapes are usually simple. In other words: It’s easy, timeless, and a safe choice, unlike some of the more fashionable wood, fabric, or metal outdoor pieces.”

Because of its versatility, neutrality, and ability to withstand all sorts of weather conditions—maintaining that pristine look—concrete furniture isn’t a trend we see disappearing anytime soon.

3. Outdoor kitchens

Speaking of indoor-outdoor vibes, it’s no surprise that having an outdoor kitchen is still trending on Google and ranking highly on everyone’s wish list this season.

“An outdoor kitchen is a must for exterior design in 2021,” says designer Savannah Phillips of The Knobs Company. “People spend all day in their home office, and when the clock strikes 5, it’s time to sprint outside and do some grilling.

“An outdoor kitchen can be used for not only standard cooking, but entertaining as well if you add bar stools or a dining set,” Phillips adds.

It’s not just Google searches proving continued interest in outdoor kitchens. According to a members-only survey conducted by the National Kitchen & Bath Association, 76% of design professionals reported outdoor kitchens as their “top project” this summer.

Whether you’ve broken ground on your ideal outdoor kitchen or not, one easy way to get started is with a portable pizza oven (also trending on Google)—like this one from Ooni.

4. Pastel colors

Nothing screams summer quite like a bouquet of color on your patio. That might be why searches for all things pastel are up right now—particularly in shades of yellow (up 13%), green (up 10%), and our personal favorite, lilac (up 19%).

“Pastel colors are a huge outdoor trend right now, stemming from the ‘cottagecore’ aesthetic that has been floating around,” says Phillips. “These muted colors give a calm, relaxing feeling and pair well with the bright colors of flowers and foliage. They’re perfect for not overwhelming the space and keeping the focus on the natural elements.”

Incorporate some pastel highlights into your outdoor decor with this persimmon rocking chair or this peachy-pink mosaic stool.

5. Mini gardens

The best thing about this trend is that just about anyone can do it—whether you have a sprawling lawn or a small balcony. These mini gardens (searches are up 7% in the past months) are the perfect way to tie in any outdoor space, no matter the size.

“The mini garden trend is all about practicality,” says Greene. “Downsized or placed in containers, gardens become easy to maintain and place. In containers, this trend becomes portable, and incorporating a tiny garden near, between, and even on outdoor furniture makes an outdoor space delightful.”

Another win, another real estate deal. Fresh off his French Open victory, Novak Djokovic recently sold his Miami Beach, FL, condo for $6 million.

The listing in Eighty Seven Park first came on the market in February for $6,199,000, and months later was sold for slightly less than asking price.

Designed by award-winning architect Renzo Piano, the elliptical-shaped glass tower appears to float above a residents’ garden and looks out to the Atlantic Ocean. The tennis star purchased a unit in the building in 2019 before it was completed. The sum was not disclosed.

The three-bedroom, 3.5-bath condo features an open floor plan with walls of glass, 10-foot ceilings, and a 1,715-square-foot, wraparound terrace.

The minimalist kitchen is equipped with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, natural stone countertops, and a compact island with bar seating. The dining area is adjacent to a sliding glass door that opens to the terrace, which also features a dining area.

The master suite includes access to the terrace, and the en suite bath includes a stand-alone tub, glass shower, and dual vanities.

The condo building offers residents a private, gated park as well as a botanical exhibition. Luxe amenities include a spa, a fitness center, two oceanfront pools, and cabanas. Residents can unwind at the wine bar or dine at the restaurant.

While the building doesn’t offer a tennis court, courts are available across the street. And the locale is close to Bal Harbour shopping.

Carlo Dipasquale with Cervera Real Estate and Wendy Mendoza with Cayhill and Dumott Realty represented the sellers. Joyce Gato with Douglas Elliman represented the buyer.
