Here's hoping you're having a very good start to the New Year and you haven't been too hard on yourself with those resolutions. Often we push ourselves to do things we may not like (because we know it's good for us) or deprive ourselves of favorites things (because we know it's good for us!). Isn't it exhausting? And it sure makes it tough for January to win anyone's favorite month award!
Because we have a passion for designing beautiful pieces for the home, it's easy for us to shift the focus towards what we call more "pleasant" self-improvement, Let's make a resolution to create better daily rituals and appreciate simple moments so that we may "Live Beautifully" more often.
Here are resolutions we like for 2018:
1. More fresh flowers in our home and office.
They look good, they smell good, and it's a bright spot on these dreary winter days.
2. Use your fabulous dishes for even the simplest gatherings.
There is no time like today to break out that beautiful platter to serve up casual food for an informal gathering. It makes everything taste better.
3. Give thoughtful gifts to your favorite hosts.
Entertaining's hard work and if you have that certain friend that always goes all-out for their guests, show them they're appreciated with a small token for their home.
4. Set the table. We mean, really set the table.
Nothing says you care like a beautifully curated table. It sets the tone for a wonderful gathering since you've already claimed it special, and the conversation will follow...
5. Celebrate more often.
The weekend, the beach, your sports team win—find your reason. And celebrate.
How about you? Tell us in the comments how you plan to be kinder to yourself and Live Beautifully in 2018!
