Fresh Start: Max’s January Pinterest Picks


With the start of every new year comes a new chance to turn over a blank page and start fresh. The insanity and festivities of the holidays are over and there is time, once again, to focus on personal projects and self-improvement. I, for one, often use January as my go-to time for straightening up, purging unnecessary things, and getting all of my life (both physically and mentally) in order. This year, with a new house and dozens of renovation projects ahead, my January checklist falls firmly into the physical realm. Up next? Carving out an office space, a new pantry, and a functional laundry room—projects that are just made for the New Year mindset! From my friend Sean Wolcott’s  wonderfully minimalist Rationale Calendar to Target’s new Black & White vase (which I’ve used as a lovely little planter), these are my picks for getting into the Fresh Start groove with style. Check out all of my picks on Design*Sponge’s Pinterest Page. (And don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest!) —Max


I love the pink file cabinet! Having a pretty system always makes stuff like filing less of a chore.
