It’s time to celebrate a fresh startbed pillow covers, and to set yourself up right for 2018, we’ve got a few tips to create some rituals to ensure this year is the best one yet.


Setting goals for the year ahead is a great time to realign with your values and check that you are heading in the direction that feels right for you.

Make big goals and small goals. Set some that are attainable in the near future, and some that are part of a bigger plan. Having things to look forward to in the new year will have you excited for what’s to come.


With the madness of Christmas now over, it’s time to chill out and enjoy some alone time. Don’t feel guilty for the act of doing nothing. Having nothing to do can be completely restoring and rejuvenating, and just what your body needs to reset for a big year ahead.

Enjoy the simple things, like having a cup of tea, reading a book, lying in the sun, and plenty of afternoon naps.


Putting pen to paper can be highly therapeutic and relaxing in itself. Journalling is known to have benefits as a way of expressing your thoughts and letting go of stuckemotions. Whether you use it to write down your thoughts and feelings, express gratitude at the end of each day, or write goals and to-do lists, a journal will help you stay on track for 2018.


Just like our team of artists and designers, we all need time to create. Get outside, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy sitting in nature so your mind will be refreshed and full of new ideas.

Here’s to a year ahead filled with beautiful, Australian living.
