It's January here at AT, which means we're supporting fresh starts and focusing on revamping your bedroom. The most important room in your home, this is a great month to declutter and make any upgrades because A. it's cold outside and B. sheets and bedding are on huge sale this year across the country, so the SUPER expensive stuff, Italian sheets, etc, are now within reach...

As far as trends, what I'm seeing this year is that people's fascination with the chic, more formal Hotel Bedroom is fading, and a much more homey, colorful and playful look is feeling much more appropriate for now. Perhaps this is the bedroom equivalent of comfort food?
