Steal This Look: The Compact Family Bath, Beach House Edition


Steal This Look: The Compact Family Bath, Beach House Edition

August 9, 2016

“I fell in love with the look of this apron sink from Home Depot and built the design around that,” says Jenny Wolf of the compact main bathroom in her family’s East Hampton cottage. She transformed the 55-square-foot space from dark to light and from worn-out to shipshape, courtesy of whitewashed wood-paneled walls and accents of “mixed metals.” Wolf runs Jenny Wolf Interiors of New York and kindly detailed her sources. Here’s how to re-create the look.
