...My second inspiration came from a 50's style credenza that belonged to my parents. The idea was to blend the historical details of my Back Bay brownstone with more modern elements and to open up the space as much as possible.
Design Tip: My favorite resources are my friends who have all done set design in the movie business and are great designers. I also work at an Art school..need I say more
EXTRA: Notes about the pictures View of the kitchen - I wanted to open up the space as much as possible so I removed the kitchen walls completely. I also stuck with light colored woods to keep things light and airy (baltic birch and maple. Note the extra storage space above the door. To open up the space without converting a one bedroom to a studio, I ripped out half the bedroom wall and put in sliding sandblasted plexiglass panels (which I keep open more often then closed). Dining room table - A view of the rolling tables at the counter doing their double duty as dining table. I also roll them around individually so I can create a work surface where ever I want. I have a river view so I like to do my work by the window. P.S. I know I need furniture...thats why I am entering this contest!
