Are You Relocation Ready?

Declutter … then declutter some more. Even though sorting through possessions before a move may seem overwhelming, the last thing you want to do in your new residence is to spend countless amounts of time unpacking items you no longer use, says Jennifer Ott, owner/designer at Jennifer Ott Interior 
Design in Austin, Texas. 

Ott, who has relocated repeatedly because of her husband’s career in academia and is ramping up for a move to San Francisco this summer, recommends the tried-and-true method of purging items that have sat in a box or remain unused for a year or longer. “Is this something I can easily and … affordably purchase again in the future if I suddenly need it? If yes, I’ll sell or donate the item,” she adds.

I’m the client now

We’re about to close on a charming small Victorian fixer-upper in San Francisco, so I’ve been auditioning possible material options, including these lovely tiles from Fireclay that just arrived today. I want a single color backsplash, but am having a tough time deciding…from left to right we have: Lagoon, Turquoise, Spruce, Limon, and Chartreuse. Countertop will likely be a light-to-medium gray quartz or possibly a honed natural stone, if I can find a slab we dig.
