In the Matters Magazine “Hearth and Home” issue (March 2020), Sarah’s point of view was included in the article “Modernizing the Present by Honoring the Past”. In this feature, Sarah talks about how to live our lives comfortably within the challenges that come with owning an older house. She stresses complimenting rather than competing with the original details found in so many of our homes.
The Resource Home Show
Sarah has been honored to be a part of the Resource Home Show since its inception in 2018 when she was a panelist for a discussion covering all things homeownership. In 2019, she and Amy Hughes, owner of Salvage Style and fellow member of the Maplewood Mercantile, hosted a talk titled Curate, Don’t Decorate Your Home. She is looking forward to continued participation in the coming years!

Isiah House Happy Spaces
In the Spring of 2017, Sarah was a collaborator on a large scale project that helped to update the common spaces at Isaiah House, a warm and welcome place for families without homes. Her team of three worked on the largest space in the project, the Cafe/Lounge, which also housed a play area for kids aged 0-7. Because the space was so large and had to serve so many different uses (cafeteria, meeting room, gathering space, play area) to say it was a challenge would be an understatement! Working with a very small budget, and relying heavily on donations of labor and goods, Sarah and her team came up with an overall design that not only served the needs of the residents at Isaiah House, but was also comfortable and fresh feeling.
Here are some links to articles about the project and Isaiah House:
