Located in Hudson, NY, on Warren Street (the town’s main thoroughfare, known for its antiques shops and restaurants), The Hudson Milliner is a recently opened bed & breakfast from Shannon Greer (a photographer) and Charlotta Janssen (a painter and restaurateur). The building formerly housed the town’s millinery shop, and Greer and Janssen have turned it into a guesthouse that looks to us like a perfect Thanksgiving retreat. Our favorite spaces? The two kitchens, which feature reconditioned vintage ranges, plumbing pipe shelving, butcher block counters, and simple schoolhouse furniture. Get the look with the following elements:
Above: Greer and Janssen created DIY shelving from plumbing pipes and reclaimed wood. Home Depot has a good tutorial on Plumbing Pipe Shelving by Ethan Hagan of One Project Closer. Reclaimed Goods on Etsy sells made-to-order custom black pipe shelving units; prices start at $99 for an Industrial Pipe Curio Shelf.
Above: For a similar sink, consider Ikea’s double-bowl Domsjo Sink for $312.98. For the faucet, we’d recommend Chicago faucets (see Faucets & Fixtures: Chicago Commercial Kitchen Faucets). Countertops? Try Ikea’s affordable edge grain, oiled-beech Numerar Wood Countertop, which comes in precut lengths.

Above: Reconditioned vintage ranges can be sourced from Savon Appliance in LA, which specializes in Wedgwood and O’Keefe & Merrit (I once lived with a vintage O’Keefe & Merrit and loved it). The Antique Appliance Company, also in LA, is another good source. For a list of 26 vintage range dealers across the country, go to Retro Renovation.
