I resolve to use coasters. No more rings on my coffee table! These white ones look tidy in their coordinating case.
I resolve to finally replace my unsightly cutting board with a stylish version. I love the aqua band around this one.
I resolve to use cloth napkins for dinner. They're green, economical and stylish.

I resolve to not let my clothes pile up in my bedroom. This mod black and white hamper looks up to the task.
I resolve to wake up a few minutes earlier so that I'm not rushing out of the house in the morning. A design-savvy clock should help do the trick.
I resolve to eat more fruits — or at least decorate with them. This vintage pattern would be perfect for summer entertaining.
I resolve to finally print out some of those pictures from my phone and put them in frames around the house. A chevron pattern is perfectly on trend.
