Steal This Look: A Petite-Priced Guest Room in Brooklyn

June 12, 2018

In a recent remodel of their Williamsburg, Brooklyn, townhouse, owners Celia and Rudolphe were forced to go all-in before they were ready (read the story here). The petite top floor guest bedroom features the original floors (one of the few elements left behind) and budget-minded decor that doesn’t look budget. Here’s how they put it all together.
