As January comes to a close, the new year is well underway and I am so excited for what 2023 has in store at Megan Baker Interiors. Year after year, my mission is to design Homes Worth Celebrating for my clients as I work on their dream home interior design projects. But, whether or not a full interior design project is on your list for 2023, there are many daily ways that we can all make our living spaces more comfortable, functional, and stylish. So in the spirit of a new year, I’ve got three home resolutions for 2023!
The beautiful bed at my Chic City Condo project layered up for the winter.
Making your bed in a small space maximizes on style for daily living!
Each layer of bedding in a different texture adds luxury to the neutral colour palette.
No. 1 Make your bed every morning
This might seem like a small task, but it can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your home. By making your bed alongside your morning routine, you’ll start your day with a sense of accomplishment and pride for your space. A bed is a large surface area in any home, so having it made also makes the whole room (our house if your in a small space!) feel more organized. Plus, a well- made bed looks so much more inviting and is extra comfortable to crawl back into at night.
Not sure how to make the perfect bed? Take a look at my Bedding 101 post for everything you need to get started!

No. 2 Hire a junk removal service
Over time, it’s natural for our homes to accumulate clutter and excess items that we no longer need or use. Every year I find myself guilty of not actually taking the donate pile away, but instead letting underloved pieces pile up and take up valuable space! Clearing visible and hidden clutter makes a huge difference to how you feel about your home on a daily basis, and allows for more opportunity for inspiring decorative moments. If the biggest challenge is knowing how to get rid of what you no longer want— hire a junk removal service like 1 800 Got Junk to haul it away, and you will be amazed at how easy this daunting task becomes!
Light the candles for a weeknight dinner, no special occasion required.
Special soap is a little luxury for everday.
No. 3 Stop saving special items and use them!
We all have those special items – the fancy dishes, the expensive candle, the nice wine glasses- that we save for special occasions. In 2023 we’re not waiting another day to use what we love! Make a resolution to use these beautiful pieces more often, whether it’s for a simple dinner in, or a particularily grey weekday. You’ll get more enjoyment out of your home if it feels like a luxe spa or special restaurant, and these little luxuries go a long way to creating a feeling of celebration at home.
By incorporating these home resolutions for 2023 into your routine, you can create a home that is more organized, welcoming, and enjoyable. Cheers to the New Year!
