Design: From A Distance


In these times of quarantine, and sheltering in place, Nate is loving the opportunity to help people design a room – from a distance. This time around, he worked virtually with Caralee, a teacher with two young daughters. Her master bedroom had been ignored for too long, and she urgently needed a space for herself. She lives in Vermont and had a budget of $10-$20K for the redesign. Read on to see what Nate created for her.
