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.

I DIG THE AUDACITY of Tamara Eaton‘s interior design for this no-compromises reno in Carroll Gardens: a five-story overhaul of a decrepit brownstone by Brooklyn’s CWB Architects, complete with elevator, new roof deck, and lots more (the homeowner’s quote from when I first wrote about this project for New York Cottages and Gardens magazine: “We took it down to the studs, and then we had to replace the studs”). Below, the front parlor nods to formality and tradition with billowy curtains and a crystal chandelier, but over the fireplace hangs digital-age art by contemporary artist Wayne Gonzalez. The furniture mix includes antique Chinese chairs, a yellow leather barrel chair, an Empire style love seat, and a flying-saucer coffee table. To see the rest of the building as it appeared on Brownstoner, go here.

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.

GREAT, RAW, OPEN SPACE, hefty wood columns and white brick walls make up this quintessential urban loft, converted to a home for two by Ensemble Architects of Brooklyn. Read all about it in my weekly column, The Insider, on Brownstoner.com.

‘THE INSIDER,’ my weekly column for Brownstoner.com, ventured outside of the Brooklyn for the first time last Thursday, featuring a Jersey City loft-apartment by some new kids in town: The New Design Project, a collaboration between Fanny Abbes and James Davison. I like their fresh and arty attitude. To see and read more, go here.
