There’s so considerably to admire about this townhouse renovation by Brooklyn style firm Workstead, it’s difficult to know exactly where to begin. We could begin with the abundance of wood, dark and rich, comprising the floors, gracing the counter tops, lacing the classic furniture. We could speak about the novel touches, like bespoke industrial light fixtures, locally crafted by Workstead, and the breathtaking slab of walnut hugging the kitchen island. Admirable is the seamless integration of standard and modern, vintage finds juxtaposed with custom creations. And then, there’s gold: door deal with, kitchen faucet, variety hood, chandelier fittings, all dazzling us, not with silvery chrome and steel, but gleaming, lustrous brass warm, golden, thoroughly modern. So a lot for chilly, formulaic modernism.
