The Insider: Speedy Reno in Williamsburg

TODAY, THE INSIDER, my weekly interiors/renovation column on, spotlights a relatively low-budget project, though I dare not use that term for fear of stirring up those (like myself, actually) who consider a quarter million dollars far from low-budget. “Low-budget” is 50K in my book. I didn’t even call it cost-conscious or budget-friendly or any of those other magazine words for ‘perhaps not astronomically, off-the-wall exorbitant.’

It’s an unusual property: a 1950s brick split-level owned by an artist couple in a parkside enclave of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which otherwise is mostly lofts and brownstones.

The architect is Sarah Zames of General Assembly, a member of theSweeten, a promising new match-up service for homeowners and contractors.

The approach is bright, fresh, and youthful. Take a look here.
