Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

New York apartment of Stefanie Brechbuehler and Robert Highsmith, a couple behind the design collaborative Workstead. A real home, where every single object has its own story. Eames lounge chair inherited from Mr. Highsmith’s grandfather, the blue and yellow abstract art piece painted by his grandmother. The walnut bed designed by a former classmate. DIY burlap curtains. And in the living room - Jean Prouvé Potence Lamp found on sale. 

A great example of how to create a real home, a place that has a genuine, unique soul. Not much, but it takes time: appreciate family treasures and collect only things that matter to you.

    i adore the courtains and lamps! Beautiful urban style.

  2. Hey, fancy "meeting" you in Brooklyn today. I really like the window treatments and how overall organized the space feels.

  3. It just shows when the owners imprint their personal touch.
