by Lidy Dipert

New Year's Resolutions for the Home

When I think of "home," I always start with a visual picture: the layout, the colors, and all the "stuff" that makes it so unique. But, of course, my real concept of home doesn't have anything to do with the physical structure or the things that sit inside it.  Home is a sense of peace and rest I experience by myself and with my family. And it's the place where I nurture relationships, and build community. And if I'm doing things right, it's the place that helps me stay sane. So this year, I'm giving my home a new commitment, and all my 2017 commitments are actually New Year's resolutions for the home.

Before and After: A Tiny Pantry Makeover

by Jennifer Farley

Tiny Pantry Makeover

I have an 18 inch wide pantry and this is how it has looked lately.
