New Year Resolutions for the Home

Ringing in a new year often brings lists of personal resolutions and goals to conquer. But what about the home? It is, after all, the place we spend most of our time with those closest to our hearts. Start off the new decade with a committment to your abode and these four resolutions....    

Get Organized

Declutter the house and create more space. From the closet and mudroom to the garage and pantry, it's time to purge and prettify!

Live Green

Invest in projects that will pay for themselves and, more importantly, help the environment. Think about installing solar panels, fixing those drafts or switching conventional bulbs to LED lighting.

Entertain Often

Plan some true face time with family and friends. Use your dining room, invite your best buds over for game night in the man cave, host an outdoor dinner party or serve up cocktails from your wet bar. Celebrate with those you love this year in gatherings large and small!

Live Well

Make self-care a priority as we enter into the new decade. Set up a home gym or grow a chef's garden in the backyard. Find your inner zen through meditation or simply cozy up by the fire with a great book.
