Let's start the new year out with two topics that when addressed can bring you a sense of calm and order - Creating a focal point and practical, beautiful storage ideas.

And now for your storage needs! I love a good IKEA hack, don't you?

Stay warm and, as usual, I'd love to hear your ideas on the topics presented.
