THESE STUNNING BEECHWOOD KITCHEN CABINETS  — designed by Workstead, the super-talented Brooklyn studio featured in my latest Brownstoner column — began with this question: how can we make cabinet handles without hardware? To read about the process and see more of the kitchen and the exceptional parlor/library (the five-story brownstone is home to a well-known author), go here.

THIS WAS LAST WEEK’S MOST-READ POST on Brownstoner, which by now must qualify as the old gray lady of Brooklyn websites, Why? Who knows? But it came as a pleasant surprise to this gray lady. It is a lovely renovation by architect Kimberly Neuhaus, and the post is full of good advice for making a 17-foot-wide home feel not so tight, and pretty pictures of interiors by the ubiquitous Tamara Eaton. If you haven’t, take a look.

HARD BY THE BROOKLYN NAVY YARD, in a rented top floor loft in a former warehouse, Alina Preciado has built and salvaged her way to a unique space with rustic/industrial character. It was the subject of my Insider column last week on Brownstoner.com, and I don’t know why it got only two comments, but I think it’s a beautiful and inviting home. Go here to read the whole thing.

NO NEUTRALS OR MONOTONES for these color-happy folks, the owners of a Fort Greene row house recently renovated with a modernist bent by the Brooklyn Home Company. Then they called on Portland, OR-based Jessica Helgerson Interior Design to help them realize the home of their vivid dreams. Love that sectional sofa, below, upholstered in vintage Peruvian blankets. To see more of this project, go to this week’s installment of my column for Brownstoner.com, The Insider.
