Dwell recently profiled a beautiful reno of a Boerum Hill townhouse owned by the founders of One Girl Cookies (also in the neighborhood). After searching for a home that felt open and lofty, the couple settled on an already-gutted corner brownstone a few blocks away from their shop. They put the design firm MADE to work, who relied heavily on salvaged materials to create pieces like a kitchen island and cabinets from remilled Douglas-fir beams. (Another great idea to cut costs on display in the bathroom: using slim sections of tile, previously cut for transitions and corners, to create an irregular wall pattern.) Splurges like the hand-finished wallpaper in the entryway are well-placed throughout the home. Like it? Love it?
