It's a new year filled with (hopefully) new ideas. We spent some time over the break working on our own home, which always inspires us. But before the holiday break, we were feeling pretty depleted. The well of inspiration was dry and we had to get going on our own place to refill it. We're wondering: how do you refill the well? (Let us know in the comments below.) Besides working on our own home, we look to blogs (AT of course!), read magazines, and visit other people's homes. We love to go to bookstores and flip through the interior design section for a few minutes. Cleaning also helps us view our home in a new light.
