As part of the 2012 Shelter for Help in Emergency Design House, a nondescript 1980s home was selected to showcase local designers' work. The front of the home deserved curb appeal, so the weed-covered entry was transformed from a neglected space to a vibrant new seating terrace. Flagstone formed the base of the space, evergreen shrubs provided privacy from the neighbors and perennial planting played off the colorful furniture. Anna Boeschenstein acted as project manager and designer for this effort while with a previous employer, Water Street Studio.
