What Houzz contributors are saying:
Embrace the ChaosThis is probably easier said than done, but giving in to the turmoil of the move rather than resisting and trying to control it will go a long way toward saving your sanity. Moving is a chaotic process, and it takes a lot of time to emerge from the chaos. There’s really no way around it. So don’t do what I did and have perfectionist expectations for getting everything done really fast. I cleared my schedule for a single week to tackle moving tasks. But that just wasn’t enough time. Feeling short on time left me feeling stressed. I should have used a big red marker on my calendar to circle two months. With enough time, I might have actually enjoyed — or at least better tolerated — unearthing years of nostalgia and packing up boxes.
Consider SculptureGarden art adds an extra dimension to almost any landscape. Appropriate sculpture not only can decorate a space but can influence moods and challenge thinking.This Buddha does exactly what the designer of this garden had in mind: brings a sense of tranquility and relaxation to the space. Its position and sedentary form quietly call us to linger and enjoy a respite from the daily grind.
