If you could completely reimagine your life, unbeholden to your past, what would it look like? When Sarah Reid’s son Zane turned 18, she experienced a “what am I doing with my life?” moment. She’d been working in non-profit administration but had always wanted to do interior design for spaces that served low-income communities. Thus was born her business, Small Victories Design. A move from Massachussetts to California facilitated this transformation. In the move, Sarah left behind thrifted finds that filled her attic, basement, and garage. As a “borderline hoarder,” leaving them behind proved difficult. But in having the courage to let go of one incarnation of herself (and most of the objects that made up that life) she embraced another.
When they got the keys to their office in February, Liz and Kate immediately started refinishing the space to inspire their work. The charm of the architectural elements like coffered ceilings, terrazzo floors and large windows add to the beauty of the studio. Budget-friendly furniture, DIY projects and vibrant art — of course! — have made this space uniquely theirs
The den in Kris Drayovitch’s home in Plano, TX is full of furniture that originally belonged to her grandparents along with other family heirlooms, like this vintage Suzani above the couch from her parents’ trip to the Mediterranean. She shares, “I love having pieces in my home that have a history and remind me of loved ones every time I walk into the room.”
