I like to take a look around the apartment at the beginning of each year and I mean REALLY look at it. When the eye gets use to seeing things every day we don't always roger that something could use a little updating. That vase that you loved but then just stuck on a shelf instead of figuring out where it should really go? You know who you are and why not make it a fun project to do a little rearranging and refreshing at the beginning of the year. Last year I added the following updates:
I needed to incorporate some color, so I added little pops of lime green (this accompanies a wooden box from Portugal, some cool sequined match boxes from Mexico and my Buddha from China.)
This year the design trends are as follows. Honestly, there is not much that I can work with besides maybe some cowhide touches.
Macrame Touches (this is not for me)
