Steal This Look: A Modern Country Kitchen in Hudson, New York


Steal This Look: A Modern Country Kitchen in Hudson, New York

November 29, 2016

This past long weekend, I took the train out to Hudson, New York, to check out the Rivertown Lodge, by Brooklyn firm Workstead (it’s been on my design visit to-do list for a while now). A standout feature of the hotel lobby? The communal eat-in kitchen with turmeric-colored cabinets and a mix of high and low fixtures. We liked the look so much we went straight to the source for ideas on re-creating the look at home.
