New Year’s Resolutions from the Design Community

by Grace Bonney


Before we packed up for the holiday break, Max, Amy and I talked about New Year’s resolutions. We all asked about each other’s and inevitably started wondering what resolutions some of our favorite people would make. So over the holiday, I reached out to a few of our favorite artists, designers, bloggers and creative people to find out their hopes, wishes and goals for 2013. Inspired by the “favorite part of my home” section of our weekly Sneak Peeks (in which home owners photograph hand-written notes), each person sent a handwritten resolution photographed in their home. I hope you enjoy their goals as much as we did. I was so inspired by some that I added them to my own list. Before we leave lists behind, we’d love to know what your goals are, too. What are you hoping to do this year? Or not do? I’m pretty sure “pizza for breakfast” (which happened two days in a row over my break) is on my list of don’ts. Feel free to share your hopes and goals for 2013 in the comment section below. Best wishes from all of us at D*S for a wonderful 2013. Whether your lists are finished or not, we hope all of you have a year full of happy days and inspiration ahead of you. xo, grace

*P.S.: Tomorrow we’ll be sharing beautiful handwritten resolutions that you guys shared on Instagram with us! We’ll also be sharing some of our favorite tools for writing resolutions and sticking to them. Stay tuned for both tomorrow.
