This is the time of year where you start putting your new year’s resolutions into action. Eating healthier and exercising more are worthy resolutions but why not consider these 10 new year’s resolutions for your house and home…
#1 Resolve to “Buy fresh flowers for the house every week”
There’s something about fresh flowers, even if it is just a $3 bunch from the grocery store, that can make a house feel more like home.
#2 Resolve to “Update the entryway with functional furniture”
Slim console tables are perfect for small spaces that need a spot to drop your mail and keys.
#3 Resolve to “Add a little glamour”
Adding accent pieces in metallic silver, bronze and gold, Lucite, glass or shiny lacquer will do the trick. Complete the look with a luxurious faux fur throw.
#4 Resolve to “Add more colour”
Experiment with bold and striking colours. Try hanging an oversized art print in a bold shade, then pick up the same colour in an accent piece for a cohesive look.
#5 Resolve to “Personalize your space”
Try monogramming. A bold initial embroidered on towels, bedding or pillows are sure to make a personal statement in any space.
#6 Resolve to “Host more parties”
Entertaining can be less stressful if you are well prepared. Dedicate a cupboard to party supplies such as simple white dishes, inexpensive wine glasses and boxes of unscented candles.
#7 Resolve to “Declutter and Organize”
Decorative serving trays are perfect for keeping items on your desk top neat and tidy or arranging attractive toiletries on your bathroom counter.
#8 Resolve to “Make your bed, even if you’re the only one who sees it”
Go all out on your bed. Make your bed feel indulgent by fluffing it up with decorative pillows, a puffy duvet, pillow top mattress and a colourful throw. Fun patterns and bright new colours will motivate you to get the job done.
#9 Resolve to “Find a new home worth buying”
Visit our sales office today to consider a home worth buying and our sales staff will make this a very easy resolution to make…and to keep.
#10 Resolve to “Relax and Enjoy your Home”
Make places in your home that invite relaxation or feel like a mini retreat. Accessories like apothecary jars have a spa feel when daily items like cotton balls and bath salts are stored and presented in this very special way.
If you can manage to focus on even a few of these new year’s resolutions for your house and home they will contribute to a prosperous 2014.
Have a great day
