What Houzz contributors are saying:
As a professional home organizer, I have seen an increase in requests to help clients transition to temporary homes due to circumstances such as short-term job relocations, medical treatments far from home, college dorm living, gaps between permanent housing and (heaven forbid) displacements due to natural disasters. In the latter case, of course, you have very little time to plan and pack. But if you are fortunate enough to have forewarning that you’ll be living in a temporary space, you can plan ahead. Temporary housing can be psychologically challenging, but you can do your best to avoid the “living out of a suitcase” feel and make it your own for the short term. What to Bring to Your Temporary HomeSometimes you know how long you’ll stay and how much space you’ll have, while other times your stay may get extended in temporary quarters smaller than initially envisioned, and for longer. It’s generally best to keep what you pack for your temporary living space to a minimum. This is not only because you’ll need to pack it up again, but also because too many items can make your new space feel cluttered and unmanageable, and you don’t want to invest too much money in a temporary space. Depending on your circumstances, you may be packing two groups of items: some to take along, and others to put in storage, perhaps in order to rent out your home or empty it in preparation for a full remodel.
Don’t think you can live with a white sofa? A midtone grey is an excellent shade for hiding all types of blemishes because it won’t immediately show light or dark flecks (like stray hairs or lint).
