Clearing your hosue of clutter is one of the best and least expensive ways to purge the stress in your life. All of us – in different degrees – are guilty of hoarding, especially after the holidays. With our hoarding, it becomes harder to find the things that actually benefit us. Additionally, clutter makes your house look dated and cramped. Donate those age-old knick knacks and thingamajigs and start fresh. It is important to fill your home with things that bring up your energy, make you feel good and inspire you. So, in 2015, only buy something if meets those criteria.
2. Prepare for Guests

Family and friends are so incredibly important. Invest the time in re-inventing and optimizing your space for guests this year. A nice kitchen remodel or living room makeover could be just the ticket. Your interior decor (especially here in Dallas), can really benefit from the fresh, green energy of adding some beautiful plants to your space. Plus, it will make guests (and you) feel instantly at peace. Also, prep your space for conversation. Rearrange some furniture so not EVERYTHING is facing the television.
Lastly, life’s too short not to have a little FUN! This year, opt to make more chances with color, pattern and accessories. Step out of your comfort zone and be bold. The best way is to change up your current color palette. Add splashes of color and accessories that inspire you, make you happy or bring back your sense of wonder and imagination. Because, being conventional is so 2014. Instead, make your place a work a vibrant work of art, a window to your soul.
Cheers to an inspiring New Year!
