- Cure Clock:
I already started. It's just the living room, but it makes me feel so damn happy every time I walk in there. I'm hoping to do the rest of the house during the 8 week cure.
We believe your home should make you happy every time you walk into it. If it doesn't? Well, that why we're starting the Fall 08 Eight Step Home Cure today. We're going to follow the eight chapters of our book, Apartment Therapy: The Eight Step Home Cure, with the goal of making each of our homes beautiful, healthy and organized. Our job here at AT will be to champion you, guide you and connect you with other curees. More info, and this week's assignment, after the jump... We'll be posting the week's assignment on Mondays. On Fridays, we'll check in with you and address any challenges so that you can keep up over the weekend.
We look forward to sharing your successes, your struggles, and your solutions. We'll be pulling your comments and your pics to the front page each week, so post your pictures to the LA/Southwest Flickr pool or simply tag them with "ATLAFallCure08". See pics from past cures here for inspiration.
This Week's Assignment: Get your hands on a copy of the book and read through page 69. This gives you all the groundwork: it gets you started with the interview and a short quiz on the health of your home and starts you working on your style tray.
REMEMBER: The Cure, especially this season's cure, is not about going out to buy a bunch of new stuff. It's about figuring out how to make what you already have work. It's about using your home more and welcoming your friends in. It's about creating a home that will support your dreams so that those dreams will come true.
The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post on each of these days and everyone is urged to take pics and post them here:
BEFORE PICS FIRST!!
