Gift Wrapping Room

– Minneapolis, MN

PROJECT DETAILS

Remodel Type: Special Purpose Room

Design Style: Modern

Clients Favorite Part: Rolling desks that combine into one

BEFORE CONDITIONS

  • Low and oddly angled ceiling
  • Space lacked a function
  • Closet lacked storage
  • Needed to maintain access to connected attic room

DESIGN SOLUTIONS

  • Created a gift wrapping room for a couple that loves to create elaborately wrapped presents for loved ones, that can also work as a sewing room when they are feeling crafty.
  • The desks were designed with funky custom graphics in a sustainable material by a local manufacturer and can be rolled together for larger projects.
  • The versatile storage system allows supplies stored in the closet to be easily accessed and hung from the slat wall behind the desk during a project.
  • The reading nook reinforces the multifunctional purpose of this unique room. A comfortable chair, side table, and floor lamp allows the home owner to take a break from sewing or wrapping without leaving the room.
  • New custom rolling carts for their wrapping paper supplies were built to stash in the closet for easy access

THE DETAILS

  • A bold graphic inspired by their graffiti art wraps the reading nook in bright bands of color and disguises the attic storage door.
  • The client’s unique bunny art is vividly framed to provide balance on the opposite side of the room from the wall graphic.
  • The bunny art is referenced in a cheeky way as a bunny head was included in the design on each unique desk top.
  • Eco sensitive materials were utilized throughout the space, from the no-VOC paint used on the walls to the FLOR carpet tiles used to create the rug.

About Colleen


I live in Minneapolis with my landscape architect/urban designer husband, my daughter who believes she’s my design assistant and sous chef, a cuddly tuxedo cat, a feisty Siamese, and a menagerie of turkeys and other wild animals who visit our backyard for the free food. When I’m not designing, you’ll often find me cooking up a Paleo feast, practicing embarrassing TikTok routines with my daughter, or hiding in a corner with my nose in a book.
