Two best friends open a North Shore studio
LIVE IN: Northfield (Sabia, left) and Northbrook (Scharoff). AGES: 45. CLAIMS TO FAME: Though each runs her own design firm — Patina Home Design and Anne Scharoff Designs — they recently combined Scharoff’s expertise in architecture and Sabia’s interior skills to open The WorkRoom studio in Wheeling (971 N. Milwaukee; Theworkroomchicago.com). It’s both a space where industry pros and DIYers alike can collaborate on design projects, and a shop teeming with unique finds.
