Brass is class
I have to wonder how rare it is to find not just spaces, but entire homes that are so simply yet cohesively designed. Take this Brooklyn gem, for example, residence to the Mandayam-Vohra family. The kitchen here is a stunner. I've got stars in my eyes for that island countertop and the consistency of the white and brass combo. There's a district lack of color here, designed by Stefanie Brechbuehler, Robert Highsmith, and Ryan Mahoney of Workstead, but there is no starkness. (via Dwell)
And of course, the landmark of every well-designed space is beautiful functionality. See those outlines in the stairs? Those doors open up to reveal understair storage areas. As for the rest of the home (see more of that here), elements like the cabinetry (though the slab hails from North Carolina) were locally sourced, the walls, curtains and finishes left neutral to show off their classic furniture and light fixtures. Everything here just looks like it belongs together.
