Design and Resolutions.

Every email, magazine, and TV show you see in January is likely dedicated to organization and clutter - -  just as it is every January.   In addition, every year,  I resolve to clear the clutter and get better organized.  One project this year is the home office.  It is actually not TOO bad, but our closet could stand a little sprucing up.         


I ran across this article in the January issue of BHG.  It is designer Amy Meier’s home office (actually located in her dining room).   


I love this space!  I think this is the perfect blend of white, natural materials, metals, and pure beautiful organization.     

Why can’t I seem to get this perfect blend?   

Further in the article, it actually lists Amy’s formula for the right mix of finishes "50 percent slick white, 25 percent woven baskets, and 25 percent brushed metal.”  You know I am not very adept at math, but I am going to attempt this!   



Read more about Amy’s Office here.  And, be sure to look around her blog -- she has some great stuff.   


HOWEVER, before I run out and buy 1,000 new items, I really need to sit down and plan what I need and what will work.  I am too apt to run out and buy a bunch of stuff that doesn’t work, is too small, and is not visually appealing.  

So, what’s your first home project for 2011? 

PS:  Here is the Diva’s 2011 Resolution.  We are on Day #2 and she is having a pretty difficult time sustaining it.
