Successful Alumni of the Academy of Home Staging and Design, Redesign Historic, Tiny Bungalow

Ellen Silverstein and Julia Parker of JUELL DESIGN, are two of The Academy of Home Staging & Design’s Alumni who are living out their design dreams, with a creative and lucrative career in Home Staging & Interior Design. Their latest project is a collaboration with Architect and Client, Jeffrey Kamen.
They recently completed a gut renovation of a “Tiny House” project, which is a year-round bungalow located in Rockaway Beach, New York. Starting in 1910 there were over 7,000 thousand bungalows built in the Rockaways, dominating the beach. Now only about 100 remain. Part of this area is now included in the National Register of Historic Places.
They were built along Rockaway Beach, which was then newly accessible from Brooklyn and Manhattan by train, allowing beach access to thousands of people.
In the1950’s the area grew out of favor and sadly the neighborhood spiraled into economic decline. The area was further ravaged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 when thousands of homes were either lost or severely damaged.
"Our design goal for this 370 sq ft bungalow," stated Ellen and Julia, “was to turn it into a high-quality year-round rental unit. Given that this project embodies “tiny house living” we had obvious additional challenges in trying to make it as modern and comfortable as possible, like carving storage areas out of nooks and crannies, keeping the kitchen small but usable, including an 18” dishwasher, making sure the bedroom could hold a queen-sized bed, and that the bathroom was comfortable, all while using updated and stylish finishings."
Ellen and Julia are very excited because they are currently working with Jeffrey Kamen, Architect on a second bungalow, their goal is to be “the be the catalyst for the redefinition and reshaping of Rockaway Bungalow’s into modern stylish ‘Tiny Houses’.” The team feels strongly that, “these Tiny Houses maintain the intimacy and the communal spirit that will integrate them into the Rockaway Bungalow Community."
Ellen and Julia credit their training at the Academy of Home Staging and Design for their success, “The 6-day Home Staging Certificate Program we took at Academy of Home Staging & Design in NYC has been invaluable for us at JUELL inc Design. We learned everything we needed to start our business, from hands-on staging exercise’s and class work, to receive the Academy’s step by step, hard and digital copies detailing how to set up a Home Staging business. We love the ongoing access we have to have to our coach, Owner Kim Kapellusch, allowing us to discuss any questions we have as we grow our business.”
