Several factors prompted Jill to redecorate. "When I decorated the apartment seven years ago, I put the TV over the fireplace. After practically breaking my neck trying to watch it, I realized I hadn't utilized spaces properly," she explains.
The apartment was full of dead zones. "There were a lot of empty areas-a lot of wasted space," Jill says. Her wish list in-cluded capturing that lost square footage for a second living area; improving lighting; and creating a lighter, more modern look.
