Your style resolutions


Have you made any of your own style resolutions which you'd like to share? My own resolutions are simply to declutter (an ongoing theme, and an urgent priority in a flat with very little storage) and spend money on the basics before buying anything new. For example, I need to prioritise having my windows cleaned (never cleaned in the three years in this flat and they are filthy), damp proofing an area of damp in the kitchen and, fingers crossed, have a professional painter paint the hallway, skirting boards, and outside windows. These are not my favourite things to spend money on, but I've been ignoring them for quite a while and instead have spent my money buying Etsy items on a whim. Design blogs, you need to be held accountable!

If you'd like to, write a post on your blog with your resolutions and add a link below in the McLinky list (if you're reading this in a reader you'll have to go to my site to see what I mean). You can use the questions in the last post, or just use any of your own. I'm curious to read them, and no-one will hold you to account if you don't achieve anything!

Lovely, clean and tidy photos. :-) My resolution is yours: de-clutter, simplify, one room at a time. :-)

Organizing and getting rid of clutter is on the top of my list. Everyday I get a little closer to becoming clutter-free. I love the photos.

On my list is to complete or let go of those tiny apartment projects and purchase the large items (new couch, rug, book shelf)I keep putting off by purchasing the small (pots, frames, organizing items). Thank you for the inspiration and Happy New Year!

Love the light rooms and the artwork. Both things I'd like to improve in my home. I can't wait to see everyone else's style goals!
