When the holiday hustle and bustle subsides and leaves us in the quiet wake of early January, we often find ourselves reflecting on our old ways and setting goals to develop healthier habits—nix the carbs, hit the gym, become debt free, etc. LUSH believes that giving your home or workplace a renewal is another great goal for the season, and that inhabiting a space that best reflects how you and the users of your space live, work, and play is conducive to a happy lifestyle. This is a great time of year to think about whether you’re satisfied with your space.
When we talk to clients about their spaces, we ask questions like: Does your space serve your particular needs? Is everyone comfortable within it? Do you like how your colors and furniture coordinate? The list goes on… If you can’t answer yes to those questions, it may be time to flip your home improvement switch on and tackle the redecorating and odd jobs you’ve been putting off. Getting your home in order will give you a satisfying feeling of accomplishment. So whether it’s cleaning your rugs, refinishing furniture, painting the family room, or replacing the kitchen cabinets: make a list, form a plan, resolve to execute it, and you’ll be crossing tasks off of your to-do list in no time!
If your space simply needs a light refresher and you like keeping up with the latest trends, try incorporating into your home décor Pantone’s colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. While these may seem like the colors you’d choose for baby shower gifts, the soft pink and blue offer some R&R for your bolder colors and have strong nostalgic ties to a more innocent time. When faced with a busy daily routine, who could complain about this year’s soothing color trend? We came up with a list of recommended items to inspire you.
Also, keep your inbox handy because tomorrow, we have an amazing guest blogger, Paula DeCuir of Balanced and Organized. She'll be sharing about refreshing your space by getting organized for the year.
