New! Summer 2012 Article in STUDIOS magazine!

I am thrilled to announce my article “Multifunctional Craft Space Fits the Family” is being featured in the Summer 2012 issue of STUDIOS Magazine.

This article describes the crafting/homework/office station we designed adjacent to an open great room-style kitchen. Like many Americans, my clients wanted an open floorplan since they felt that formal living and dining rooms are a waste of square footage that end up empty most of the time. Since the kitchen table would now become the only table, it was essential to create a space where the kids could color or work on homework projects without impacting dinner time or making the space feel constantly cluttered.

The new space is perfect for homework, gift wrapping, craft projects, and tracking the complex calendar of busy family life. For lots of ideas that could work in your home, online casino australia purchase the magazine today. Side bar articles include “Adapting Kitchen Cabinets for Craft Studios” and “Craft Counter Materials”.


The article concludes:

“With the stairs, pantries, craft/homework station, phone, and mom”s calendar all in the same space, it is a family hub. It”s a place where the chaos of family life can be organized and contained, so that the kitchen/great room maintains its own function and is an inviting space for the family.”
