For our second Home Style feature, we visited Amy Helfand at home in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We hung out and took pics inside her amazing row house and then headed out for lunch at Fort Defiance around the corner on Van Brunt Street. It was a magical morning, visiting this quiet hamlet tucked into NYC. Head below the jump to find out Amy's favorite things and her annotated home style.
