Step 1 Clean it up. Get rid of the clutter. Fix or toss all broken items. Ask for help. Additional hands will not only make the tasks move faster and be a lot more fun. Move furniture around. Rehang existing art creating freshness for the New Year. Sit and enjoy yourself as you begin to create ideas for your new environments.

Step 2 Research different atmospheres and genres. Remember each room functions independently so try to parallel the atmosphere you want to create with the functionality of the room.
