DC BY DESIGN
Those of us who are obsessed with interior design might say we worship at its altar. But for one designer in Maryland, that’s literally the case. Stacia Smith, a designer in Glenelg, MD, recently renovated an 1889-era church to be an office and studio for her business, Homewood Interiors.
THE BALTIMORE SUN
Howard County folks once worshiped at the 1889 church whose neo-Gothic steeple overlooks the fork of two Glenelg roads. The former Providence United Methodist Church later became Tatiana, a go-to place for unique and beautiful pottery. Today, renovated, restored and redecorated, the structure’s new identity is Homewood Interiors, where designer Stacia Smith plies her trade.
Stacia Smith has never been afraid of renovations. The principal designer and founder of Homewood Interiors was fearless in transforming a centuries-old church into the new location of her company.
With more than 20 years of experience under her belt, Stacia Smith has a fair share of projects in her oeuvre. The Baltimore-based designer explains why this room, in a historic property, is her personal favorite.
