Looking Back and Looking Forward

I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions…at least not any more. But, the end of the year is always a great time to reflect on the past and to think about “what’s next?”

2015 was a great year for The Zhush. Fueled by a new house to decorate, the year started off with an exciting bang when our home was featured over on My Domaine. And then, just recently – in a nice symmetrical book end to the year, featured over on the One Kings Lane blog. These were exciting and flattering moments – to say the least.

I really enjoy sharing the design progress here at our new house each month. Documenting it (with progress peeks) made me really appreciate our home, especially during those first few months when I was questioning the whole move and really missing our old home.

I love when I get an email telling me how our home or this blog has inspired someone, even if it’s in a small way.  Now into my seventh year of blogging, I feel like I’m starting to hit my stride.  I’ll be carrying over certain series into the new year, like Peeking Into Designer’s Homes and Blogger Home Tours and I’m working on a few fun series, that I hope you’ll love as well.
