Bosworth Hoedemaker
Architects & Designers
Montlake craftsman-bedroom


This remodel of an architect’s Seattle bungalow goes beyond simple renovation. It starts with the idea that, once completed, the house should look as if had been built that way originally. At the same time, it recognizes that the way a house was built in 1926 is not for the way we live today. Architectural pop-outs serve as window seats or garden windows. The living room and dinning room have been opened up to create a larger, more flexible space for living and entertaining. The ceiling in the central vestibule was lifted up through the roof and topped with a skylight that provides daylight to the middle of the house. The broken-down garage in the back was transformed into a light-filled office space that the owner-architect refers to as the “studiolo.” Bosworth raised the roof of the stuidiolo by three feet, making the volume more generous, ensuring that light from the north would not be blocked by the neighboring house and trees, and improving the relationship between the studiolo and the house and courtyard.

4. Dedicate an entire wall! Nails or simple hooks are all you need to achieve this look.

If you have a ton of necklaces and a ton of blank wall space, hang them up like this and enjoy them.
Hang frequently used pieces lower for easy access.

I'm not the first person to suggest using vertical storage opportunities to their fullest in a studio, and I won't be the last!
If you've got a great jewelry collection, why not show it off? This display, which dominates an entire wall, doubles as décor. Organizing pieces by style and size is a great way to locate the one you want at a glance.

Displays jewelry in a wonderful way for those who "curate" a personal collection. I have a lot of costume jewelry that I almost never wear. But it's so beautiful it deserves to be touched and lived with.
