As we begin a New Year, here is the time to take stock of our homes ensuring that we make the most of the space we live in, so we can relax and play!
Steady though, this is the time to relax and recover from hangovers rather than painting walls and empting out the draws. Instead write a list, a wish list of all the things you would like to do to your home this year. Break the list up into rooms, this list should be as detailed as possible, noting anything from redecorating the living room to repairing a skirting board or getting new bedsides tables. Keep the list visible so that you can constantly refer to it and start any research. Even adding to it when it crosses your mind.
Whilst you are compiling the list try to ‘shop your home’. Can items be moved to another room to freshen it up? Sometimes you can get complacent and all you need to do is look around your home and have a move around. Ask, why they are there. Is there a place for everything or are boxes and bags been left in corners. Also try to pair back, are there just too many ornaments, try reducing a little, everything doesn’t have to be out all the time. Taking stock is a good way to keep everything fresh and loved.
The sales are on too and it is easy to get swept up and buy things you perhaps don’t need or even want. So be cautious, don’t buy things just because they have been marked down. Keep an eye out on my social media for the best sale finds.
There you go nothing too strenuous and as you settle down on the sofa with a box of chocolates and a film. You now have a plan to make your home beautiful in the New Year.
