Call it the six-ish year itch. After as many years in one place, Ann wanted a clean slate, to banish the shadows and let in the light. She looked to favorite places for inspiration, to a professional for guidance, and in the process, strengthened a friendship and rediscovered the love she once had for her home, all while preserving and polishing the best of a studio in a vibrant New York neighborhood. That's a nice way to start a new chapter.
