Happy New Year and welcome to 2013. January is traditionally the time to review the year just finished and look ahead to the future. We know it can be overwhelming to browse through our vast archive of articles (and sometimes the search function doesn’t work as well as it could), so here’s a little help – I’m sharing what was popular last year. Hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane and maybe find a post or two that you missed.

Top Post of 2012:
Do Gray and Brown Work Together? We have many posts about color but this post continues to garner lots of interest. Apparently many people are uncertain about how to make these two colors work together – but you can, and successfully.
As we start 2013, it will be our fourth year of offering home decorating advice, suggestions, and tips to our readers. Cindy and I take great pride in providing current, instructional information to help all of you create the homes of your dreams. We’ve seen the blog grow from a little start up project to a site that reaches over 1,000,000 views a year.
Our plans for 2013 are still developing, but you can be sure we’re going to continue offering lots of decorating info and tips throughout the year. We’ll have give-aways, a new e-book, and are working on some other ideas that may come to fruition.
