Project by: Molly of Awfully Big Adventure Location: Austin, TX This project focused on taking my tiny, boring, popcorn-ceilinged living room and turning it into a cheery, comfortable place to come home to- all on a serious budget. Using mainly Ikea, Craigslist, hand-me-downs, and tchotchkes galore, the living room came together and is now a colorful, eclectic space far from the oatmeal box it once was. READ MORE »

There's really only one way through a move (do it) but these eight tips might help you from losing your mind in the process. READ MORE »

Pink bedroom design by Angie Hranowsky on Lonny Sure, curtains are one more opportunity to add color, pattern and interest to a room, but for a chic, elegant look consider curtains in the same color (or one shade lighter or darker) as the surrounding walls. It shows design confidence: I could jazz this place up with contrasting curtains, but everything else is so fabulous I don't need to. Below are more beautiful examples: READ MORE »

Name: Karie & Rob of Shelter Collective Location: West Asheville, NC My husband and I moved into our home about three years ago. We love the location because we are only 2 blocks from a bustling street with coffee shops, restaurants and music venues, 4 blocks from our design studio, Shelter Collective, but it still has a quiet, rural feel because there is a large field and community garden behind our house.

Alice, My Man is a Mess — Ask Alice: Advice for Life at Home

Dear Alice, My boyfriend and I just moved in together and it is NOT going well. He's a slob and it's driving me up the wall. He thinks nothing of leaving dishes in the sink for days and opening packages and leaving the wrapping all over the counter when the trash can is right there! The most frustrating part is that he doesn't see the problem — he doesn't care if things are messy. Since I DO care, I wind up cleaning up after him just to get the house to a normal state. I'm really starting to resent him and it's affecting our relationship. How do I get him to be tidier? Sincerely, Stressy Messy READ MORE »

So much of what we all need to stay on top of on a regular basis is online and it can get just as mentally messy and stressy as having a big, tottering pile of paper stacked in the middle of your room would be. Getting some clean up done here will make you feel more relaxed and happy at home throughout the year ahead, so it's just as worth it to start this process as it was to get going on the physical cleaning and organizing of your home this January...
