Home Trends: Apartment Therapy's January cure

Over the past year, I have fallen very fond of the home improvement and blog website ApartmentTherapy. This online nucleus missions itself on "helping people make their homes more beautiful, organized and healthy by connecting them to a wealth of resources, ideas and community." What I appreciate most about the site is its never-ceasing posting that provide an array of ideas. The writers and designers within the site also work diligently to create inspiration for all designs aesthetics.

As I made my weekly "swing" by ApartmentTherapy.com this morning, the one of the top posts was the new "January Cure." This is the site's new month long, daily email program sent to participants providing a task for folks to complete each day. The idea is to promote efficiency which will result in having all of your home improvement chores to be completed by the first of February.

I am a big fan of New Year's resolutions, so I didn't hesitate signing up for the "January Cure" for a second. There are several things around my home that I intend to complete; however, I don't care to drag out the process over the course of the whole year. Sound like yourself? Check out ApartmentTherapy.com to get signed up for the daily home improvement assignments sent out every weekday. Upon your arrival to their website, type "January Cure" into the search box at the top of the page. This will navigate you to the sign up page immediately.

After providing my email address, I received my first daily assignment (January 2) to "make a list of projects." My list humbly includes: to finally finish the painting project I have been working on since Thanksgiving, acquire well-considered and effective wall decor to match my desired ambiance, replace all light switch and outlet plates, and replace bedding.

Perhaps your list consists of cleaning and organizing your closet, finally tackling your cabinetry updating project, purchasing new furniture and modernizing your decor.

While your list may seem fully attainable, busy schedules can quickly intervene. ApartmentTherapy's orchestrated timeline for your projects give some promise to helping you enjoy the majority of your 2013 in a home that makes you proud and feeling accomplished.
