After a 3 year marriage, interior designer Kerra found herself living alone for the first time in her life. In the condo she had shared with her husband she felt surrounded by too many memories and decided to make radical changes, surprising even herself by selling almost every piece of furniture she owned. She went about crafting an entirely new and feminine space, making design decisions she hadn’t been able to make when she was living with other people.
As an interior designer, Kerra was able to do what many divorcing partners dream of but don’t have the resources to tackle.
Her story is inspirational (you can read more about her design overhaul here: http://www.today.com/home/see-how-woman-reinvented-her-home-her-life-after-divorce-t84396), but for many who are facing the difficult decision of splitting their entire lives – friends, family, care of children, money, house and everyday possessions – it is a dream that won’t be realized. Often during divorce, at least one spouse needs to buy a new residence and sometimes in a hurry. Buying a new place amid the stress of divorce, a full-time job, children and bills is difficult as it is, so decorating and design takes second place.
This is unfortunate, because our living spaces determine the daily choices that we make. Whether we have a workspace at home (if we work from home for example) can make such a difference to our relationships and the flow of our daily lives. After divorce, an opportunity to redesign a space in a way that is no longer a compromise with your spouse can be the first step to rebuilding a better life.
Fortunately, 3 Riverz Creative is there to assist with this transition. A design firm that works in conjunction with Santa Clara Mediator and Boileau Conflict Solutions, one whole department is dedicated to helping people make the best design decisions possible during a divorce transition. The approach is scientific and mathematical, based on phenomenology and psychoanalysis and a deep understanding of how our spaces effect our daily wellbeing.
The service is completely tailored to your budget and designed to help you make the best decisions, including light, paints, furniture, rugs, woods and metals and patio, all quickly and with maximum efficiency.
