Constraints can be liberating

There’s some humping and dumping of furniture going on at the minute, as I get my studio better suited to my 2020 plans while creating a more relaxing environment at home.

In doing so, I’ve been thinking about what bits of furniture would go where and what I might buy that nicely fills a space I’ve opened up, or fits better in a smaller gap. There’s a huge temptation to window shop, idealise and iteratively plan – a trap I’ve often fallen into in the past. To avoid that, I’ve reminded myself that I want to see what I can do without spending anything. I can re-purpose, but not renew. Make do and mend, but not supplement.

These self-imposed constraints have enabled progress without delay.
