“Let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.”
—Goran Persson

Welcome to the first issue of 2021. Can I get a hallelujah? I’m pretty confident in saying 2020 has been a year for the record books. Our family here at Omaha Magazine has been truly resilient in difficult circumstances, as have many of our customers, readers, and friends. Let’s keep that strong spirit and good will humming along into the new year.

OmahaHome is excited to debut two new recurring stories this issue—an ASID Awards design
feature spotlighting a local designer’s prize-winning residential work, and Double Heart Farm, a series chronicling the home remodeling venture of Omaha furniture designers Roger Hazard and Chris Stout-Hazard of Roger+Chris. Be sure to check them out. This round, you’ll also learn about creating winter bird roosts, see a dramatic bachelor pad makeover, get a peek at an adorable baby nursery decked out with handmade, inspired art, and more.

As you pack up your festive decor this year, take special care. It seems like ornaments and figurines always break while in storage. I found this helpful tip to preserve your holiday keepsakes for years to come.

1. Cut a piece of cardboard so it lays flat in the bottom of a plastic tub.

2. Glue plastic cups to the cardboard.

3. Place ornaments and other small decor pieces around the cups, filling in the layer.

4. Repeat until space is utilized and/or decor is successfully stowed away.

Whether your resolution list is large or small, cheers to starting out 2021 with a positive outlook. Attitude can make all the difference.
