2018 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 5, 2018

Happy New Year - Resolutions for your home in 2018Life gets busy, complicated and hectic. In this New Year let’s all make a resolution to slow down and make our lives simpler. Let’s create a little change in our homes without spending a lot of time and money. Shea Homes® put together a few ideas to help you simplify and perhaps create something new and different for your home (and for you) in 2018.

Rearrange Your Living Room

Has your furniture been placed in the same way for years? Moving your furniture around could make your living room or any room in your house feel like a brand new space in your home.

Use the “Fancy’ Dishes

Let’s get crazy this 2018! We all have that dishware we store in a box or somewhere up high all year long for special occasions, only touching the table a few times a year. Why not use that “special” dishware that makes you so happy? Do it for you!

Make your Bed

There are actual studies proving that making your bed every morning can make you happier. Establishing a routine every morning by waking up and making your bed will make the overall room look more put together, and will also have you starting your day off by being productive, and efficient!

Start a Donation Box

After the holidays we always find ourselves with more than we had before. Instead of wasting a day cleaning out each room, make it a quick hour clean up with everyone designated to a room. If you forgot you had it, donate it! After you do one New Year sweep of the house, keep the tradition of donating alive by having a donate box that everyone at home can utilize all year long.

Separate with Baskets

No one enjoys separating out their own dirty clothes from lights, darks, and hand wash — much less their entire family’s laundry. Let’s skip a step this year by having a separate basket for each load of wash, or buying a sorting hamper with multiple compartments. Make each person responsible for separating their own clothes and make laundry a quick 1, 2, 3!

The Color of the New Year

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 21, 2017

Ultra Violet - Pantone Color of 2018Every year, Pantone Inc., a company best known for its standardized color matching system, announces the color of the year, based on what it believes will be the year’s “it” shade. This coming year’s hue is ultra violet or more specifically, PANTONE 18-3838. On Pantone’s Instagram, they announced the bold color saying, “Pantone’s Color of the Year is one moment in time that provides strategic direction for the world of trend and design, reflecting the Pantone Color Institute’s year-round work doing the same for designers and brands.”

According to Pantone’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, in a New York Times article, this complex and introspective shade of purple “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us towards the future.” Eiseman continued, “It’s also the most complex of all colors, because it takes two shades that are seemingly diametrically opposed — blue and red — and brings them together to create something new and extraordinarily beautiful.”

Show your life and home some love this year by adding a pop of this rich and inspiring tone throughout your home.
