collected, inherited and made.






This Cobble Hill apartment in Brooklyn, home to the architects/designers behind Workstead, is a great example of collecting and holding on to things that have a meaningful history. Art and designer furniture passed on from grandparents (jealous), beautiful industrial lighting, an awesome postcard collection, and more.

I love items passed down from family members. They're some of my most prized decorating things. I hope my house one day is a modge podge of family antiques.
