Looking for something to drool over this morning? Then head over to Kinfolk Magazine’s design profile of this classic seven apartment in a Jackson Heights prewar co-op. Here are a few details on the couple’s renovation and design process:
After moving in, their goal was to restore and simplify the previous owners’ modern additions to “bring the bones back to the feeling of the 1920s.” They restored the cupboards, redid the wiring, resurfaced the walls, refinished the floors, added some wainscoting, repaired the bathroom tiles, and that was only the start. Once they’d rebuilt the skeleton, they set about decorating with a mishmash of antiques from different eras.
The result is pretty gorgeous, with historic elements throughout and a bit of a modern, lived-in touch. We also love that kitchen. Oh, to have a classic seven in Jackson Heights…
