If you're like us, you've been kicking around the idea of going through your house and organizing, decluttering, and tackling all those little projects for a while now. Why wait, drag it out, or do it alone?

Over the next eight weeks we'll follow the chapters of our book, Apartment Therapy: The Eight Step Home Cure, to revitalize our homes one step at a time. Our job here at AT will be to champion you, guide you and connect you with other folks doing the Cure. An official signup form and the first assignment is below the jump...

Jamiemcquary has an art corner set up in the living room. We love the vibrant blue walls and detail in the floors.

Sign up: Again this year we are introducing an official sign up form (below), so we can better support you as you go along. It's also instrumental in keeping us all committed to the process. Make sure to tell us what city you're in!

This week's assignment:
• Buy or borrow the book.
• Read to page 69. This takes you through the structure and background of the Cure, a self-interview and short quiz on the health of your home, and the basic concepts of Bones, Breath, Heart and Head.

The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, allowing for plenty of time and space to comment. Your comments and pictures will be in the limelight, so post them here:

>>Northwest Fall Cure Flickr pool

The goal of the Flickr pool and doing the Cure together is to support, inspire and answer questions as you go. The more you participate, the more you will get out of it. Also, the Cure is not about cleaning out your bank account at DWR. It's about figuring out how to make what you already have work, using your home more and welcoming your friends into it.

Don't forget to post your BEFORE pics first!!!
