Steal This Look: A Historic Bathroom Renovation in Brooklyn

November 30, 2021

We recently highlighted the new book from Brooklyn design firm Workstead, Workstead: Interiors of Beauty and Necessity. Among the 10 interior projects featured within is the renovation of a Colonial Revival in Park Slope, Brooklyn. While the bathroom features historic details not easily replicated, we liked the look so much that we sleuthed out a host of similar elements to recreate the unique look.
