Transitional Design

Since I started studying design, I have always had a passion for kitchen and bathroom design. There are certain things about these spaces that restrict you to designing within the rules. This is part of what I love. I love that within these rules, you can still be so creative, and find a way to create a different space for each user.

Being able to help my clients, in any part of their home, and especially these challenging and high-impact spaces, is a wonderful experience. No two people have exactly the same design style, even if they describe it the same way, they can see it differently. Helping people to be able to describe their style and discover what they are looking for from their space is a great process. Then being able to create that space that they've been looking for is really a great experience.

About four months ago, I was lucky enough to be able to find a position as a bathroom design consultant at a showroom in New Jersey. Accepting this position was a no brainer really. It is a great opportunity to advance in my career, while helping work with people to create a unique space for them in one of the most important areas of their home.

P has recently found a new job as well, and we are working through the move from one tri-state, to another. We are going to be closer to his family (extremely close, as we are moving in until we find a place!), closer to his childhood stomping grounds, and still within a reasonable distance to all of my friends and clients in CT.

Now that you know, I hope you can understand that with this transition, there are a lot of moving parts. As we close the chapter on our time living in Connecticut, and move forward to see where this next chapter takes us, there are a lot of elements a play. At times, these things will come between me and my computer, and I won't be able to post. But fear not, we are looking for a new home with dedicated office space, so soon enough we will be back on track with everything and creating our new rhythm.

I'm so excited to be able to share this transition with you all, and document the trials and tribulations of moving to a new place, and all of the things that come along. I am also very excited to find our first home, and be able to share the steps that we take to make it our own.

Thanks for tagging along for the ride. Happy transitioning!

  1. I like that quote. I think it's nearly impossible to love every minute, but it's a great goal. Kudos on all the happy stress and changes in your life!
