We live our lives. Kids grow up and leave…. their stuff, and stuff, and more stuff behind…, and never seem to pick it up, or even care about it anymore. In this case, it was the son’s drum set that had been sitting and occupying a large part of the living room for years…the kid long gone and grown up, and the drum set forbidding anyone from using the room.
Ready to dump the drum set and reclaim her living room, and a few other rooms in the process, my client wanted to remake her home into a comfortable and inviting place for her and her husband to enjoy.
When we get the opportunity to sort through the leftovers in our life, it is amazingly freeing to let these old things go. When the old and unused are discarded, that is when the truly meaningful rises to the surface. This is certainly true for this client, who has many exquisite collections of intricate German crystal glassware, Llardo, and Hummel figurines that now could be showcased.
It is a remarkable experience, and a privilege, to transform a home that hasn’t been updated in 30 years. There is so much satisfaction in breathing new life into a space and knowing how wonderful that makes the people I work with feel.
