You made it! (Or, at least, are hopefully on your way – that’s ok too!) Three cheers to you for putting time, effort and creativity into your home – it’s absolutely always worth it. Design and decor are meant to be evolving, so there will inevitably be changes to make and more to do, but it’s important to appreciate the things you accomplished this month, regardless of what other plans you have on the horizon.

Today’s Assignment:

Take time to reflect on your accomplishments and then enjoy your room and the whole holiday season ahead!

Before the rush of activity that will kick in next week in earnest as Thanksgiving weekend arrives, please be sure to take some time to appreciate and enjoy the effort you put into your home in the past month. As Maxwell says, nothing you ever do for your home is wasted. Even small improvements will have a positive effect on how you feel about your home, so a room redo like this is cause for a celebration. Don’t forget to take time to enjoy it and feel proud of yourself!

All the positive changes to your home this month came from you – you researched and decided on a design direction, you cleaned and organized, you chose colors, you completed projects and sourced products, worked on the layout and the lighting, you painted and pulled it all together and now, YOU have yourself to thank!

For those of you hosting a Cure-end gathering, I think it’s a great way to wrap up this experience and show off your updated space. I hope that you and your guests have a wonderful time!

I’d like to finish off by giving a sincere thank you to everyone who was part of the Style Cure – everyone’s ideas, energy and support made the past month a pleasure. Tell us how it went (or is going!) for you in the comments and, hopefully, you’ll share photos of your room with us, too – just send an email to me with “Style Cure” in the subject line.

PS: The Style Cure livebloggers are finishing up their “after” photos too and putting together their posts – look for the before and afters next week!

I hope you’ll join me again in the New Year for the next January Cure which will focus on getting your whole home organized for a truly great 2015! It’s the best way to get your year started off on the right foot. We’re going to begin on Friday, January 2nd.
