Ideas - Top 3 New Year's Resolutions for your home

Not yet decided on your New Years Resolution? Then why not do transform your home instead? We've listed three achievable new years resolutions for your home to choose from below.

No.1. Eco Home.

There really are so many reasons to be more eco. Above all, with the climate crisis we're facing at the moment we all need to be making changes to the way we live. So our top ideas include switching to a cleaner energy provider such as Ecotricity, banning single-use plastic in the household and using environmentally safe cleaning products and detergent.

To find out what steps we've made to be more sustainable, check out our Eco Policy.

No.2. Get organised

Wellness is a bit of a buzzword in the Instagram-age but, it is important to prioritise your wellbeing. One way to look after yourself and reduce your stress, particularly when everyone is back to work and school is to get organised. Invest in some lovely baskets and storage units for your kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms and take a weekend every couple of months to sort through your things. It will help you keep on top of it all so that you don't end up having to do a massive clear out every year or five!

No.3. Create a device-free zone in the home.

The best place to go device-free would be the bedroom. Notably, blue light has been proved to affect our sleep so for a better nights shut-eye ban the phones, laptops, TVs and Ipads from the bedroom! Crucial for reducing your stress levels, just taking a mere half an hour away from your devices will leave you time to read that book that's been on your nightstand for the last month, chat to your partner or just chill out. Really go to town and create a bedroom sanctuary with cushions, throws, bedspreads and lovely linen bedding.

Edit: Jane & Lucy's 7 January Favourites

Image Credit: Catherine Gratwicke

1. My New Years Resolution is...

JANE: My aim is to continue to be more ecologically conscious in my home. Less packaging, more refilling and buying locally sourced food.

LUCY:  I'm not a very disciplined person, so giving things up or going to the gym never really happen for me. As such, I would like to take some things up. So, with the start of a new decade,  I would say; live more, love more and have more fun!

2. My Interior Design Resolution is...

JANE: Be Creative and Be Brave.

LUCY: De-clutter.The house often feels empty when the tree and all the lovely fairy lights are gone, so its a good time of year to shift things about and have a change around. I often move artwork from room to room, change the cushions in the living room and refresh my decor.

3. The thing that I most looking forward to in 2020 is...

JANE: We are launching a new sofa collection, I am simply beside myself with excitement as they are simply gorgeous. I cannot wait!

LUCY: We are moving into our new permanent concession space in Liberty London. It's always nice to refresh our offering, create new looks and hold events to meet our lovely customers.

4. My top tip for creating a happy home is...

JANE: For me family, friends and food make a happy home, but plants, flowers, scented candles and dogs can transform you home too.

LUCY: I'm a more the merrier kinda gal and a feeder so as long as there are a good crowd and some nice food ... our home is a happy one.

5. My perfect night in would include...

JANE: My husband, linguine vongole and a bottle of white wine.

LUCY:  Food, wine, candlelight, family and friends...

6. The RSG Product that I want to take home this January is...

JANE: I am currently obsessed with our new lighting, my current favourite is the Tiered Art Deco Pendant light but we also have some beautiful new tassel lights coming soon.

LUCY: I am loving our new Rockett St George curtains, they will look fabulous in my living room.

7. The exciting project I'll be working on this month is...

JANE: We are currently working on lots of new product designs. My favourite is a new art print collection which is going to be gorgeous.

LUCY: We are designing more and more of our own products. It is such an exciting creative process and will keep us busy for the next few months.
