Design Manifest’s ‘Room of the Week’ feature in Philly Mag!

As long time readers of this blog know well, my Ardmore Cottage has been a labor of love. . .and blood, sweat, and tears. . .but mostly love. 😉  So I was delighted when Philadelphia Magazine asked to feature the Cottage’s attic as their room of the week.

Now that the Cottage is Design Manifest’s full-time Design Studio, I try to use this 3rd floor lounge as a retreat during the work day to catch a zen moment amidst the inevitable mania.  This attic really packs a lot of function into a relatively small space, and I’m happy to think that this feature might inspire others to take their unused attic space and turn it into something extraordinary.

You can read the full Q & A feature in Philadelphia Magazine here: Room of the Week: A Gorgeous Attic You’d Actually Want to Live In, and see more of the Cottage in our Portfolio.  For more background on the attic’s makeover as part of the One Room Challenge, take a stroll though our Blog.

Thanks again to Philadelphia Magazine and Emily Leaman for continuing to feature Design Manifest’s projects – we really appreciate the love!
