The Fall Cure: Week Two - Weekend

What is this about? Get the Cure Info here.

Work in progress: texasarp's living room, which she says needs an area rug, coffee table/two small tables, side tables, lamps, artwork, accessories ... Any advice?

We're almost a quarter of the way through the Eight-Step Cure. Early adopters: Congratulations on making it this far. Newbies: Welcome, and glad you could join the party. Everyone: Keep uploading those photos to our Flickr group and tagging them with "apartmenttherapycuresf". Hopefully, you're finding the discussions here and on Flickr helpful. If you're not sure how/where to solicit feedback, try jessicat's suggestion: Post your questions here, with links to specific photos that you've uploaded to Flickr.

One of my favorite things that's been going on this week: Jillian1977 is not only curing her home — she's taking the eight steps to her office cubicle, too. Check out her to-do lists right here.

More Good Links:

  • caliloud is looking for advice on her angled bedroom ceiling.
  • zostra's kitchen is making folks envious.
  • What kind of window treatments will allow carina to still enjoy her marvelous view?
  • dancingspring organizes her books by Library of Congress number. Seriously.

Reminder about this week's assignment: Last week was about inspiration and motivation. This week, we're really getting to work. The Deep Treatment focuses on decluttering and cleaning the kitchen from the top down. Smaller tasks include filtering your tap water and planning a housewarming. And don't forget to cook a meal that you actually like!

(Last night, I — okay, my husband — grilled up some filet mignon and asparagus. Grilled figs with honey and Greek yogurt made for a refreshing dessert.)

With the One Room Workout, you'll probably want to focus on a a different room in your home. Try re-arranging the space on paper to see how it could better meet your needs. Additionally, it's time to turn your ideas and inspiration into a a concrete vision for the project. Remember, once you have a clear port to sail towards, the trip becomes much easier.
