A carriage house attached to a new home in Galveston, Texas, has turned into a sanctuary for today’s Featured Customer. The carriage house has a living room, kitchenette, and bathroom plus a 15 x 15-foot space upstairs that has been transformed into a workshop.

When you envision your attic, do you see cobwebs and lofty piles of insulation? Bare light bulbs hanging from the ceiling? Boxes filled with forgotten treasures?
An attic in Indianapolis dispels all of those images thanks to the talented hand of Kelley Ross who describes herself as more of an artist than a designer. She was hired to turn the unused attic space into something warm, cozy, and inviting for the homeowners.
“This was an unfinished attic and all new construction by Randy Walker Construction,” Kelley says. “The clients wanted an old warehouse/factory/industrial feel. Something that looked aged and worn.”

Did you ever think you would see the words “warehouse lighting” and “nursery” in the same sentence? Perhaps not, but when you have an artist’s eye, you can make warehouse lighting work, and beautifully so, in a nursery.
Rachel is an artist who creates prints from her hand-drawn and painted artwork for her Etsy shop called Lazy Sunday Studios. When her first baby was about to be born, Rachel and her husband transformed their home office/studio into a nursery for baby Ryder.
“I always wanted something outdoorsy for a nursery without being overly themey or babyish,” Rachel says. “My husband and I both love being outside... Read More
