I didn't want to just do a "best of" list. So this year, I've decided to take a years worth of personal New Year's Resolutions, ask around for those of friends and put a call out to readers (email me here) about things you've always wanted to know, always wanted to do and then take those requests and ask an expert, an insider to help out. The result? Here goes...

Today, we're kicking off with the following resolution:
"I've always wanted to make my apartment feel more put together. My resolution this year is to attack one room at a time and make it look like a professional came in and redecorated for me!"

So I went to an interior designer and stylist to the stars, Erinn Valencich, owner of Omniarte Design and host of several specials on HGTV, Style and a frequently quoted expert on design and event tips. I asked her for her favorite stores around town to make both the big statements and also the small touches. Here are some of her favorites.

  • Bamboo Colony on Beverly- They have the best mix of modern glamour- always unique gorgeous pieces and lovely accessories and great art. A must for anyone looking to update their home.
  • Plantation on La Brea- one of my favorite spots for accessories. Very creative and a nice mix. A great place to get a home related gift for someone.
  • Maison Midi on La Brea- love going here for that French touch- nice linens, amazing dishware and table cloths. Very eclectic.
