Wendi is a mother and a former professional singer turned clothing designer. With her job developer husband, Eric, they just had they're first child Ivy. With the newest addition to their family Wendi and Eric are having trouble finding the time and the space to make their apartment a creative space to thrive in. Wendi moved her sewing studio into the dining room in order to give Ivy a nursery. What once was a functional dining room is now cluttered with spools of thread, bits of fabric, a sewing machine and various other creative tools. Antonio's mission for Wendi is to give her living space back and to create and efficient way to hide her workspace by having it fold up and hide away leaving her living room for her and her family with no obstructions. Three custom made cabinets become ''transformer pieces'' in the living room. Two of these cabinets are made of beautiful reclaimed wood and look like artwork on the wall but the secret is all Wendi's sewing needs are hidden inside them. Once you open them up the living room transforms into a functional workspace. When the pieces fold back up?the living room returns to an unobstructed comfortable family space. The third cabinet is a hideaway sewing machine station. Walking into the room no one would know this cabinet holds multiple sewing machines and a pull out desk with lights. The dining room is turned back into a beautiful eating space with a new table, custom paint color on the wall and a special treatment of metal flake to the ceiling to make it sparkle. The nursery reflects their desire for a peaceful cohesive home while adding design elements that create unexpected visual impact. Antonio has his tattoo artist friend draw beautiful butterflies & swallows that he then has made into large cutouts that hang on the Wall & painted in vibrant colors.
