My new clutter-free zone! Realizing the bulletin boards in my office were just another form of clutter (along with scads of jewelry-making materials), I took them down and made use of a treasure I bought last year: a vintage metal First Aid cabinet. I hung it on the wall and stashed my jewelry-making materials inside. Then I added two vintage brushes and a broom head to create a minimalist vignette. I enjoy it every time I look at it.
Amy is an entrepreneur, and has been a successful designer and business owner since 1996. With an architect father and interior designer mother, she's been thinking about how to make a home work all her life. As a child, she loved organizing her closet and found designing her dollhouse more appealing than playing with dolls. She went on to graduate from Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in industrial design. Due to the breadth of her design education, she’s able to assess a room as a whole and instinctively know how to make it work better. Evaluating the contents and functionality of a space is second nature to her.
