What I Love About My Small Home:
Every inch has our design fingerprint on it! Devoid of any personality that a 120-year-old rowhouse should have and with water damage throughout, we gutted everything and refashioned it into a home that denies being small and oozes the character that it should. We put in serious grinding hours to expose brick walls, installed flooring of salvaged barn wood, reclaimed any wood we could from our renovation to use for open shelving, and lifted the 2nd floor ceilings to the roof to expose original beams. To balance the warmth of the aged brick and wood, we folded in a layer of modern—simple, flexible pendant lighting, an acrylic vanity with chrome fixtures, recycled glass countertops accented by glossy white glass upper cabinets, Kristalia barstools, and a simple-form sofa. The rest is personal: artwork by family, rugs carted back from Qatar, copper pots picked from a Paris street market—all jumbled with modest finds from local thrift stores or an occasional stop at a curbside heap.
