I saw this little gem on Pinterest from The Nester and I thought it would be a really great idea to make an actually list of things I want to accomplish in our home this year. Of course, we still live in a relatively small apartment, so I’m definitely limited in the changes I can make. But my husband and I are both incredibly similar when it comes to home design (thank goodness, right?). We both ache for change about every 6-9 months. (I did mention my adventures in making over our bedroom this summer right?)
So, this list will outline a few of the cosmetic changes I would love to see happen in our home this year.
1. Change up our photo wall. Right now our small gallery wall is 100% dedicated to photos and memorabilia of our wedding. It has been unchanged since I put it on the wall and I’m ready for a little mix up. I’m thinking about changing up the layout, adding some different frames (possibly in a different color?), and adding some different things in the frames.
2. Style up the coffee table. The coffee table is definitely considered one of the most used drop zones in our home. At a glance, you’ll see stacks of magazines, an old basket for keys and such, and my laptop (which serves as our TV for movie nights and such. It always feels cluttered and I’d like to take the time to dress it up a little. Maybe a new basket for out-the-door necessities or a tray to hold some books and coasters. Also, a few fun pops of color would look really great.
3. Purge! I’ve been on an organizing kick for the past month or so, getting all of our documents in order, but I’ve also been eyeing quite a few things that need to go. I’ve always craved a home filled with meaningful items and necessities rather than a home cluttered with things to collect dust and never be used. While, there isn’t really a whole lot in our home that doesn’t get used regularly, I still want to go through and make sure that our belongings are important to use in function and/or meaning.
And there you have it. So far I’ve established a few good resolutions and now a list of goals for our little home. I’ve got quite the busy year ahead of me.
What about you? Do you have a list of things you’d like to get done in your home? Or any other aspect of your life, for that matter? Join in!
