Thank you celestina89. I have way too many "things" including extra furnishings but would never part with any of them. There is a shelving system set up in our basement with woven screen "doors" for whatever isn't being used right now. I want to be able to re-arrange rooms, furniture and accessories, whenever I feel the need for change and this allows me to do basement shopping, at no cost. Lagom life for me isn't defined by the quantity, or lack thereof, of things but the use of things to bring about a sense of tranquility within the house we call home. Balance is what we all strive to achieve and if some of that balance comes from having things we love and appreciate then so be it.

I find most of these rooms to my liking and would feel at home in them.
