Moving into your first solo apartment is a challenge best met with enthusiasm, flexibility, and vision. Jillian has those qualities in spades, and has worked within her budgetary constraints and the quirky anatomy of her sunlit studio to create a space for herself that is comforting and homey, while also functioning as a workspace for her growing design business, jilly ink.
