I am often asked, “what’s behind the door” in my Brooklyn kitchen.
Ta-da! It’s the teeniest powder room on the parlor floor of my Brooklyn townhouse replete with a custom soapstone sink that is floating and über shallow. But my favorite design detail is the monochromatic rope trim that lines the perimeter of the room. Can you see it?
For me, it’s the small details that really take a room from stylish to sublime—this is what makes me swoon. When you give the eye an opportunity to explore, linger, and ruminate as it dances around the room, it sparks curiosity and ultimately, joy. It enchants the viewer, makes them feel welcome in the space, and delights the senses. That’s how we should all feel at home. See every part of your space as a chance to move you, from the lonely corner to the surface of your living room side table, or your tiny parlor bathroom.
