Picture This: 2021 Design Resolutions
Happy New Year! Given the events of the past year, I think it’s important to set some simple and realistic design resolutions for 2021. When it comes to our homes, we all are now hyper-aware of what is lacking after being homebound for so long. I encourage you to try easy fixes that will ‘elicit joy’ rather than starting from scratch.
Do something cool for your pet(s) in 2021. This is the ultimate doggy door, which gives furry friends the freedom they crave. What is your favorite color? Don’t be afraid to find a way to use it in your home where you can enjoy it regularly! Make a goal to hang an original piece of art that speaks to you in a high traffic area. A bedding refresh, like this one from John Robshaw, can make your bedroom feel more inviting and up-to-date. Tackle a hallway that you traverse countless times a day. Decorate with lighting, a runner, small tables and fresh paint. Change out the old foyer pendant that likely came with your house and opt for one you adore that makes a splash. For some curb appeal, repaint your front door a new color that makes you happy. This one in deep blue is a cool twist on traditional black. If you have not discovered succulents, take a stab at them. I promise you cannot kill these plants—trust me, I have tried! A 2021 must is finding a clever way to hide packages when they’re delivered. This concept is wonderful if you have the space to build a niche. Pick one space you use daily (like your pantry) for an organization project. Baskets separate and hide clutter. Invest in creating the most ideal workspace within your house (even a corner of a room), and make it your own with lighting, rugs, storage, comfy seating and a cool desk. Begin or build upon a collection of items you love, and find a creative way to display it.
