Interior Predictions For 2011: The Year of “Loving The Home You’re In”™

I’m declaring 2011 to be the year of “Loving The Home You’re In”™!

Home Sweet Home

(Wouldn’t it be fun to send out these announcements without having to load up the moving truck?  Who says your new home has to be somewhere else?)

What exactly does this mean?  As consumers have watched home values change, many have decided to stay in their current homes and are opting for improving their spaces, not with the anticipation of resale, but with the idea they can create a more positive, personal living environment.  Living better means optimizing space through function, optimizing emotional experiences, and planning for all of the occupants’ life stages.

So many ideas and so much time!  After all, it’s a New Year of postings!


I’m dedicating my January posts to help you consider creating a new home, in a new year, as you deserve a well-designed life! 

Thanks for joining me.  We’ll take 2011 one step at a time! 

Wishing you the best of the New Year! ~ Wanda

Wanda...What a great idea. One can always make a home more lovable. Happy New Year.

What great cards, Wanda; I'm going to keep those in mind. We are actually hoping to downsize this coming new year. So maybe I'll have a new house to make into a home! Happy Holidays!

This is an awesome idea! We have been lovin the home we are in for 20 years. Determined to last till it is paid off!

Thank you, Rosemary! I still have clients who are building, but I think remodeling and tweaking existing homes for well-designed life will be where 2011 takes us. I know I'm looking at doing the same thing, and when it's time to eventually sell, there won't be the mad dash to do improvements. Happy New Year to you!

Thank you, Kathy and Thelittlebrownhouse for sharing your kind comments! In what was once a throw-a-way society, I think we're embracing the lesson of value and making wiser choices. I hope my post will give some great ideas for 2011!
