Double Duty Design
What was once a lovely condo dining room is now filled with filing boxes, printer wires and all the paraphernalia of a busy office. Unfortunately, this means that when the day is over, poor Phyllis has no space where she can relax, enjoy a lovely meal or entertain her friends. Applying the principle of double duty design, Candice saves the day by space planning for multi-purpose, multi-functional, everyday ergonomics – in a teeny, tiny space! She creates a beautiful area that serves as a super efficient office by day and then transforms into an inviting, relaxing space by night.

Design with Focus
Without focus, a room lacks presence. Too much focus and it becomes disorienting. When the focus is wrong, that is all you notice. That is exactly the case for a young couple who turn to Candice to help them with their living/dining space. Overwhelmed by a beautiful new staircase, the space lacks focus. Candice dips into her designer tool bag to take this room from blank slate to bold space.
