Jane MakuchJane had some specific ideas of what she wanted in her dream sewing room. “I knew I wanted the storage to be white and understated so that the fabric became the focal point. I also wanted it modular, so I could rearrange when needed,” she says.

The result is a wonderfully warm area with colorful fabric and trim displayed in clever ways amid a whimsical Emma Bridgewater pottery collection, fresh flowers, a plump white sofa topped with puffed pillows, and even an adorable dog, Kipper (a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel).
