Hello World, Happy New Year and Happy New You!
The festivities are over, guests are gone, the Christmas decorations are gone and left a hollow space, outside is kind of cold and grey. How do we pick a cheerful mood again? Redecorate and make any space, or the entire home ready for the Spring. Now, is the perfect time to get rid of all those items that have occupied a space in your home for a long time and donate them.
Redefine conversation areas with a new throw rug and colorful pillows on the seating. Reupholster a sofa, or chairs in a new fabric and give them a new life. Rearrange and rotate all of your art work on the walls. When you take out art work that has been in the closet for a while, it looks new and interesting again, but if you really don’t like it anymore, refresh, free your closets from clutter and donate.

Refresh the walls by painting them with vivid and cheerful colors welcoming the Spring. Rotate your furniture too and pick up chairs and accessories from other rooms to mix and match as you like. Rooms don’t have to look the same year after year. By doing this, you create a flow of positive energy in your home.

 

Add fresh flowers in each room and plant cooking spices that you can keep in pots inside the kitchen window and use them for a new fresh cooking style.
Clean all your windows inside and out and wash the curtains.
Decorate your front door landing with a variety of new pots for new plants and garden ornaments.
Reclaim dead spaces. If you need more storage space in your home, there are many areas people don’t think of using.
For example, the part underneath a stair case can be filled with shelves and drawers, add decorative doors in the front and you have an attractive storage room that now has become an integral part of the room.

Bookshelf spaces of 6″ to 8″ can be created all around doors. I love to see books in every corner of the house, I place them everywhere, not just in the library room.
The space under a window can be used to create a built-in banquette seat with storage capacity inside for blankets, toys and sport gears. Fill the top of the banquette with decorative pillows and nobody will ever know what’s inside.
Clean and polish all your shoes, why? They look good and it is a new year!
What I am saying is, celebrate every day of your life, not just December with all the Christmas lights, glitters and decorations. Every day is equally precious.
