2011 has started off with a bang! For me the start of a new year is always a time of reflection, goal setting and getting rid of clutter from the previous year. A time to look back at the previous year and assess what I want to accomplish in the upcoming year.
The start of a new year is a great time to take a look around your home and decide if there are some projects you want to tackle or some changes you would like to make. If you are like me, this recent snow storm has given you plenty of time in your home to really look around and see some areas you would like to improve. For me, the list is long or should I say ambitious. Add curtains in my breakfast room, recover a recently purchased antique sofa, find that perfect rug for just inside the front door, decide if I am going to repaint my living room and if so, what color.
So grab a cup of coffee or tea and take a real, honest look around your home. Is it time to find new hardware for your vanity? Maybe a new set of towels. Maybe you need to clear off your kitchen counters and start over. Whatever your project may be, big or small, gather your ideas, get estimates for the work if need be, then work it into your plan for an awesome 2011.
