Re­claim Your At­tic Space

Southern Living (USA) - - Home & Garden -

Walk­ing into Amie Cor­ley’s stun­ning of­fice, you’d never guess that it was for­merly an aban­doned care­taker’s apart­ment lo­cated in the car­riage house along­side her 1907 home. The St. Louis in­te­rior de­signer re­cently re­al­ized her long­time dream of trans­form­ing the old and empty at­tic into a home for her grow­ing busi­ness, but the 950-square-foot space posed a whole puz­zle of chal­lenges—in­clud­ing low win­dows, lim­ited plumb­ing, and pitched ceil­ings dip­ping to 7 feet. “We had this re­ally wonky space that needed to work as a stu­dio (with plenty of room for all of my fab­rics, wall­pa­pers, and fin­ish sam­ples) and also func­tion as a pretty en­vi­ron­ment for meet­ing with my clients,” she says about the of­fice, which now fea­tures two dis­tinct zones that make ef­fi­cient use of square footage.
