You've had a great summer. Perhaps you entertained loads of out-of-town guests, barbecued, held parties and did craft projects with the windows flung wide open. Or perhaps you spent no time at home whatsoever, but vacationed, or took advantage of fair weather to go on every hike and outdoor event you could. Either way, your home now needs your attention, as you will need it
in the snugglier days ahead.
The Cure is an 8-week process of evaluating, clearing, adorning and aligning your home with you
, ultimately to create a space that supports happiness, peace and vitality in your daily life. While not back (or bank)-breaking, the process does take some some focus and motivation, as well as good old-fashioned elbow-grease. We're here to help.
• First, the book: Apartment Therapy: The Eight Step Home Cure
is your manual for the next eight weeks. While we'll post about each chapter every Monday, you'll need to borrow, find or buy a copy to really follow along.
• Next, Flickr: Join the Apartment Therapy SF Cure
Flickr group to post pictures and get in on discussions with your fellow Curers. Start with some 'before' pics to have something to look back on, and maybe get some early feedback and encouragement. Don't forget to tag your photos with "apartmenttherapycureSF
" and we'll pull pics from the group to share your progress with AT:SF readers on Fridays.
It all starts next week
, so we'll answer any questions you leave in the comments in preparation for the days ahead!
