Located in Hudson, New York, on Warren Street (the town’s main thoroughfare, known for its antiques shops and restaurants), The Hudson Milliner is a bed-and-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 weekend 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.
