Holidays bring the stress of all those unfinished "honey do" lists for interior and exterior chores.  But they are also a great motivator ! 

 

There are so many ways to mask what you see as a flaw and others will completely ignore:

-Make sure the leaves are out of the front beds and your perennials are cut back and shrubs are tidy-pruned.

-Paint the front door !  Nothing is more eye-catching than an interesting color !

-Holiday pillows and throws can mask the dingy sofa or chairs.  If lampshades are really old replace them with crisp new ones - easy and very inexpensive.  (you weren't even thinking about that were you?)

-If the curtains are awful take them down !  The more contemporary take on window treatments is often to just eliminate them.  Unless you are glaring into the neighbor's windows or onto the street take them down !

-Take all the everyday clutter out of the bathroom.  A scented candle and clean counter with a holiday hand towel goes a long way. Make sure everything is spic and span (my secret for shiny fixtures - use coffee pot cleaner on a dry paper towel and rub on the faucet/shower fixtures - like new ! )

-De-clutter the kitchen as well.  Take all those appliances off the counters.  A glass bowl of shiny ornaments and a vase of fresh greens will bring the holidays in and make the room smell wonderful. 

 

If you need help - advice - a new eye on an old challenge call me !   I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
