What do you do when you have an industrial space but your vibe is more boho? This project, tackled by Melissa Lee of design firm Bespoke Only, should be your guide. Lee first looked to textures that could soften the modern apartment, located on the waterfront of Brooklyn Heights, and so she brought in varying shades of reclaimed wood to offset the heavy use of steel in the architecture. Then came a palette of muted earth tones, including gray, flax, and indigo.
Natural and sustainable materials took priority, as well as a focus on sourcing local artisans, thanks to Lee's commitment to reducing the project's carbon footprint. The finished product is polished yet peaceful — the perfect respite from city life.
