The title on Sunday Hendrickson’s business
card says “Divine Art Director-at-Large.” A look
at the inspired use of space and clever
organization techniques in her home office
validates that claim in spades. Although she’s
quick to credit Bad Brad (her nickname for
boyfriend/contractor Brad Duschak) for his
contributions, the breezy palette and ingenious
storage solutions are Sunday’s all the way. “The
color scheme happened by accident,” she
confesses. “I’ve always liked green, the color of
renewal, but wasn’t a fan of blue until I fell in love
with the way they look together. The combo is so
cheerful and full of life.”.
Brad hand-carved the decorative trim, “all 116
notches of it!” (a) Adorned with ribbons from
Sunday’s collection, embellished labels identify
the contents of painted wood storage boxes.
Framed atlas pages remind her of favorite trips,
including a recent visit to China. Fabric panels
hide beat-up, Formica-topped filing cabinets.
(b) Cardboard files hold copies of the many
magazine stories Sunday has produced. Straw
baskets are a cinch for carrying props. (c)
Homemade, personalized labels identify the
contents of each file. Wallpaper, Waverly.
