Parachuting In

Generally, when one tries to “parachute-in” a piece or two or work with just one room for the time being, the options are less when trying to preserve the immediate surroundings in their current form.

Very often there are differing opinions in the home regarding what may be the best solution –

Firstly, is this a temporary or a permanent action?

Is the budget paramount?

Is this the beginning of a new project down the road, for which you are willing to make compromises in the interest of that long-term goal?

I find that my job in these cases is to simplify the process as much as possible and work towards what makes for the best compromise for all considered, while preserving the peace and serenity and intentionality of the space.
