This design project in York, Maine involved re-designing two challenging spaces within a home. This included a first-floor powder room, and a former walk-in closet that we transformed into a sewing room.

The powder room has nine-foot ceilings and a large window facing the front yard of the home. The room had some personality. I introduced natural elements to the space by painting the room a soft sage green. I also hung a mobile with origami birds from the ceiling. The light fixture is hand-painted, hand- fused glass.

Upstairs, I turned a large closet into a sewing room. It had no windows, a sloping ceiling, and no natural light. I envisioned it as a corner, stolen away from the rest of the home. I painted the walls a soft gray and installed a versatile closet system, enabling the space to be used for more than just sewing materials. An antique sewing machine and a Victorian light fixture added drama to the room and gave visitors an opportunity to reminisce about their own sewing experiences.
