As we move into a new decade, it is important to reflect on previous years. The last ten years have flown by. It is said that time moves faster the older we get. With that in mind, it is important to live presently and enjoy each day for what it is. Take time for self care and wellness. Create an environment that brings you a real sense of home and happiness.
As we say goodbye to 2019, we remember a snowy winter, a wet spring and a warm summer. The floods that swept the Muskoka region caused much devastation. Some residents had to evacuate their homes while the flooding subsided, while many cottagers arrived to find their docks underwater and cottages damaged. Many of these damages took months to repair. We can only hope for a drier spring and a warm sunny summer.
With 2019 and the flooding behind us, there is no better time than now to plan that one renovation or that one update that has been on your mind. What better way to start a new decade than to make a positive change in your home environment? Start the 20’s out by thinking about and planning improvements or renovations to your home or cottage with just a couple of key updates.
If you’re not ready for any major renovations, even small changes can uplift your spirit and make your space feel new and refreshed. Consider swapping out a piece of furniture for a new item or giving a room a fresh coat of paint in a colour that speaks to you. New bedding can freshen up your entire bedroom while small accents can change the atmosphere of your living room.
Be creative, connect with nature, and enjoy the fruits of your labour in time for summer and start considering changes earlier rather than later.
