Bringing Comfort Home – WSJ.com

How to Make Any Room a Guest Room

Comfort is an important element in our homes all year round. However, we often spend more time inside of our living spaces during the winter months and become more aware of how they really make us feel. This may be why the age old Danish concept of “Hygge” (pronounced Hoo-guh), which means bringing happiness to the home through coziness and comfort, has become the focus of so much attention.

Recently, I had the opportunity to explore some simple ways to add comfort to our homes, with WSJ.com in a podcast episode on their program “Watching Your Wealth”:

Whether you’re an empty nester moving from a house into a condo, or a renter trading in a two-bedroom for a studio and shorter work commute, many people now see downsizing their home as a step forward, not backward.

The benefits to living in less space are many, but saying goodbye to a familiar living environment and memory-filled belongings, can be a challenge. Having helped numerous clients through this process, I recently had the opportunity, with WSJ.com on their program “Wealth Watch”, to explore some ideas to make the experience easier.

Custom Furnishings Pros and Cons – WSJ.com

WSJ podcast custom furnishings

More than ever before, we value our homes as a place of refuge. However, we are also cautious about spending. When most of us commit to a renovation or buying furnishings, we view the expenditure as an “investment”. We need confirmation that we are receiving a high level of quality and good value for our money, but are not always clear how to make this assessment.

Recently, I had the opportunity, with WSJ.com on their program “Watching Your Wealth “, to explore what points to consider before buying custom home furnishings. Following is the link to that podcast episode, “A How-to on Custom Décor”.
