Ah, New Year’s resolutions. We may do our best to try and keep them, but for whatever reason they wind up escaping us further down the line.
The key to keeping them is to instill them with a sense of fun and positivity.
This can be done by thinking carefully about the benefits, both short-term and long-term, and then following the most practical ways to make them happen. By keeping optimistic and un-flustered, we can all take steps to bring about the changes we want to see.
Here are five areas that can be addressed at the start of the year.
Brighten up the start of the year and the bedroom with a neat new selection of bedding.
The Monogram Bedding, Heathered Grey bedding collection by Calvin Klein is ideal for furnishing a smart new look for the bedroom. Including cotton mix duvet covers and pillowcases in a variety of sizes, the comfortable and distinctive bedding will help get the new year off to a perfect start.
Art on the Wall
Artistic patterns and pictures on interior walls offer a lovely new look for a new year. Capable of showcasing individual style and taste, they help to make a home look and feel even more homely.
The Confetti Dots, Copper from Umbra bring a lively and creative way to make a change in any room. Easy to peel off and stick to a wall, you can co- ordinate a superb looking collection of shimmering dots.
Shining a light on new changes in the home, both literally and figuratively, is another lovely way to celebrate the oncoming year.
The above Amp Lamp Large offers excellent illumination for any interior. Produced by Normann Copenhagen, the Danish made lamp brings 1960’s inspired design alongside state of the art technology. Available in colours of black and gold green, the top and wiring of the lamp contrast brilliantly with the clear luminosity of the bulb.
Making use of reusable drinking straws is a small but valuable step in the long plan of environmental awareness.
The above Cheers Reusable Drinking Straw Set of 4 by the German brand Koziol provides a 100% recyclable straw that can be used again and again. Offering a taste-neutral material that has zero impact on the drinks themselves, this is a great option for anyone who loves both their drinks and the environment.
Getting a good start on organisation and planning for the new year can be encouraged by a well managed home office.
Capable of equipping a home desk with a wealth of handy features, the Desk Accessories Set, For Good Measure is perfect for getting things straight. The Kate Spade, New York collection of a pair of scissors, staple remover and a 30cm ruler styled in gold colour is ideal for day to day desk duties.
Start the year as you mean to go on; in style!
