Quick Tip: Embrace the Space

Background via thebline on Flickr I most often work with downsizing and super-cluttered. But every so often I come across the exact opposite. I'm currently working in the first home of a lovely, young lady. Having gone through a dramatic up-sizing of her space, she doesn't have enough things to fill everything out. Everyone tells her that she needs to buy more stuff.

Sunshines, you do NOT have to do that.

No matter what size space you live in, if you do not need, use or love something, it does not need to live in your home whether you have enough space for it or not.

Let me reiterate that:

You do NOT have to fill every space in your home just because it's there.

Embrace the Space.

Room for growth is good. Until then, embrace the space. This represents space for the new to come in to your life. When you need something new, you'll have the space for it. When your family grows, there's room for it.

You do NOT have to buy things just to fill space. Otherwise you'll quickly end up in the same position as the majority of my clientele: no space to embrace at all.

Repeat after me, Sunshines:

Embrace.

Embrace. 

The.

The. 

Space.

Space. 

Gooooooood. Now go luxuriate in some open space!
