Every December 31st we vow to get thin, eat better, and quit this, or that — but what if you chose to do something that will make you happier in your surroundings? A well organized, beautiful home may be the thing you need most in order to fulfill those other goals. After all, you spend the majority of your life here. Make this year a simpler, more exciting time.
Create a space you can’t wait to come home to.
1. Simplify your space: one of the easiest ways to instantly love your home is to get rid of the clutter and opt for a simpler, more organized space. Too many things? Get rid of some. We know…easier said than done, right? But believe us, those inanimate objects that you bought years ago probably won’t ever get used again. If you find something you haven’t used in the past year, ditch it – it really is that simple. All of that “stuff” can actually weigh you down and hold you back. Just think — out of sight out of mind.
If you are hung up on something that holds value to you but aren’t using, give it to a friend or a loved one. It’s more about sharing with others than keeping it all for ourselves. If you share your things with people you love the item will stick around and probably get more use out of than you ever did… it’s a Win win!
2. Get your space ready for entertaining: Who doesn’t enjoy a nice evening spent with friends and loved ones? We sure do. Why not give the areas you entertain in a little update? We aren’t talking about a complete kitchen remodel, either.
One way to add organization and style is with a new dining room server, or buffet. This item can serve as a great place to store nice dinnerware, as well as for hiding that nice bottle of Merlot you have saved for a special occasion. A buffet can also serve as a place to mix up your favorite cocktails. The ways you convey spirits and barware can be just as entertaining as the drinks themselves!
3. Add beauty and color to your home: after all, you spend the majority of your time here. Why not make it fun, functional and exactly how you want it? Add a new design element this New Year.
Do something you normally wouldn’t do and see how it works – you may love the results!
Have you always wanted to add some color, but were afraid to be bold? Or maybe you are the opposite and enjoy a busy space — try for a simpler aesthetic. Either way, dare to be different this year. Stop looking at those magazines and thinking, “I love that, but I could never pull that off”. You can! Make this year bolder and better than ever!
A great way to add energy and liveliness to your space is with a stylish new sofa, or accent chair. The extra pop of color will look absolutely stunning. You can also opt for a beautiful patterned area rug — It can make an entire room look more attractive, instantly. Use your existing color palette as a guide in choosing the right pattern, but look for some contrast to add visual interest.
4. Design a beautiful bedroom escape – building the perfect sleep environment will be essential in finding the perfect balance of sleep for your health. Opt for using soft, soothing colors, they will benefit you the most. You will feel much better in the morning and every time you step foot in your bedroom. You will fall asleep relaxed and wake up happy and positive. According to some studies, cool colors such as blues and greens are associated with calm, soothing feelings. They have also been known to slow the heart rate down, even reducing blood pressure. However, these colors have also been shown to be revitalizing, causing you to feel refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Since the New Year is just around the corner it’s important to evaluate your space, design a home you can’t wait to show off. One that will make coming home your favorite time of the day! Go ahead and have fun with it!
