Great use for the upper floor of a garageTraditional Home Office, Burlington
This studio space above the garage serves the clients needs for her custom card making hobby. Utilizing the kneewalls we were able to carve out lots of great storage space with drawers and shelves. The sink is a salvage soapstone piece. The skylights provide both fresh air and help illuminate the space wonderfully during the day while the medium pear pendants from George Nelson and the Cirrus Ceiling Fan/light by Modern Fan Company help move the air and illuminate in the evenings. A great space for designing custom cards!

Do you plan to start a home habit? Sometimes a home improvement can simply be enhancing how you live in the house, without redecorating or remodeling. Whether you decide to start every day with making the bed or promise to prepare more sit-down meals with your family, the new year is also a time to think about how you’d like to live better at home. 8 Life-Enhancing Home Resolutions for the New Year
Vintage. Embrace the vintage patina of a salvaged sink in your home — this antique soapstone sink is perfect for cleaning up a messy craft room. Tip: Depending on how old they are and what they were used for, some vintage sinks don't actually have holes drilled into them for plumbing fixtures. Take note — this will add to the overall cost.
Pack up postholidays. When it's time to put everything away, taking a little extra time will make life much easier the next year. But there is no need to spend money on specialty containers — egg cartons make great ornament holders, twinkle lights wrapped around cardboard will stay tangle free and rolls of wrapping paper can be easily stored in a bucket or an umbrella stand. Tell us: What are your best tips for sorting, storing or organizing deep storage?
This is the studio across from the guest room; it sits atop the mudroom/garage portion of the house. The client's hobby is making custom cards, and this studio full of storage and light is a wonderful workspace. The skylights let in natural light, and also open to let in the fresh air. More vintage plumbing fixtures were used here; the shallow sink on the right is made of soapstone and Smith designed a custom base for it. In addition, an antique ribbon rack holds the client's ribbon collection. In contrast to that, George Nelson's midcentury modern pendant lights and a modern fan hang overhead.
