New Years Resolutions are always easier said than done. A week into January, are any of us still keeping the gluten-free, vegan, quit-smoking, quit-drinking, gym-going, money saving promises we made on New Years Eve? Have you even cracked your first book club novel?

That’s why we love New Years resolutions for the home. We think making your home both fresh & inspiring, as well as clean, organized and safe is a resolution that’s often undervalued – plus, creating a space you’re proud of is a great jumping-off point to accomplishing other goals. We’ve all heard the same home resolutions: de-clutter, decrease energy usage, paint an accent wall. Those are all good goals, but we think these three unusual new years resolutions for the home will make more engaging and rewarding tasks.
