New Year Decorating Resolutions

For the coming new year, plan on making a few resolutions for your home interior.  Try something new, get organized, purchase new furniture, paint, or install new light fixtures.  Experiment with trends and let them lead you to a new decorating path.  The new year is full of possibilities.  Refresh your home.

Try a new trend.  Trends can inspire us.  There aren’t many of us who have the time, energy and resources to follow trends in the home, especially at the rate they change.  Think of trends as inspiration for new ideas and put your own spin on them.  Ultimately, it is decorating with what you love that makes your space your own.

Update your lighting.  Look around your home and assess your lighting fixtures.  Is it time to upgrade or change outdated lighting?  Be bold and install a beautiful new chandelier in the dining room.  Install new pendant lights over the kitchen island.  Treat yourself to a shimmering chandelier in the master bedroom.


Tired of those boring white walls in the living room or is that color you tried last year really getting under your skin?  Put on a new coat of paint for an instant room transformation.  Power up the powder room with a bold new paint or wallpaper.  Finally turn your bedroom into the sanctuary you’ve dreamed about and paint it in that peaceful blue that you chose months ago.

Decorate your Home Using these Easy Tips


Start small.  There’s no need to undergo major renovations or decorating projects.  Start with changing out lamps, putting down a new area rug or simply purchase new bed linens.  Re-upholster that chair in the corner and create a cozy reading nook.  Purchase baskets and bins and get organized.  Purchase a new piece of artwork for the living room.

Choose a room and start there.  Make the new year a year of change for your interior.  Start small and let that be your inspiration to bigger and bolder changes.  Go ahead, try new things and brighten up your space.  Mark the new year with a new style, then invite all your friends over for a house warming party for your new space.
