Transitions - Summer 2010

In design terms, transitions exist between exterior and interior spaces, between rooms, while undergoing a renovation, while changing the old for the new...  But they also exist at every milestone in life.

Transition, like change, can be seen as something to be overcome, or as upheaval of a sort.  Or it can be welcomed as a new beginning, an opportunity, or a place to move forward from.  If seasons in our lives had themes, this summer for me would certainly be labeled "transitions", both personally and professionally.

On the personal side, the big transition - my new beginning - is that on August 20th I married the most wonderful man.  Our wedding was like a fairy-tale, and took place on a stunning beach in Mexico, followed by celebrations in Montreal.  Part of this transition includes me going from being Karen S. Weiner to Karen Weiner-Mayar; the Internet cannot make this transition as easily as I did, so I will continue to be known as both for the next while.

Professionally there are some transitions too: Idealspace Design is proud to welcome Marie LeRiche.  Marie, a talented and enthusiastic junior designer, started in July and will be working with me on current and upcoming projects.
