Zen style in home interiors is a triumph of minimalism. Zen-style in the interior is usually associated with something oriental, outlandish, and whimsical. However, Zen is not a religion and is not a philosophy … Zen is a state of mind, rational perception, awareness of the significance and value of the moment – here and now. Moreover, this value exists independently of our thoughts and desires.

Benefits of Hiring a Designer for Your Home Makeover

The Van Buskirk home2

Our homes are where we spend a good chunk of our lives. It is because of this that it is so important our homes are designed the way that we want them to be; there are many reasons we may need to hire a home designer, from simply not having time, to being physically unable to redesign our homes. If you have the budget available, as interior designers can often be very expensive and want changes made to your home, you should waste no time redesigning your house. Some changes like adding white skirting boards, is also a good thing. We should be as comfortable as possible, and in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic even more so, considering we are spending much more time indoors, and many of us are working from home.

Sorry, Nobody Wants Your Parents’ Stuff

Advice for boomers desperate to unload family heirlooms

By Richard EisenbergMoney & Work EditorFebruary 9, 2017

After my father died at 94 in September, leaving my sister and me to empty his one-bedroom, independent living New Jersey apartment, we learned the hard truth that others in their 50s and 60s need to know: Nobody wants the prized possessions of your parents — not even you or your kids.

Admittedly, that’s an exaggeration. But it’s not far off, due to changing tastes and homes. I’ll explain why, and what you can do as a result, shortly.

The Stuff of Nightmares

So please forgive the morbidity, but if you’re lucky enough to still have one or more parents or stepparents alive, it would be wise to start figuring out what you’ll do with their furniture, china, crystal, flatware, jewelry, artwork and tchotchkes when the mournful time comes. (I wish I had. My sister and I, forced to act quickly to avoid owing an extra months’ rent on dad’s apartment, hired a hauler to cart away nearly everything we didn’t want or wouldn’t be donating, some of which he said he’d give to charity.)

Many boomers and Gen X’ers charged with disposing the family heirlooms, it seems, are unprepared for the reality and unwilling to face it.
