Today, I'm taking you through a home tour of one of my favorite projects: Salt House Market's home studio space in Williamsburg. After chatting for nearly 2 hours with the Havenly client, and drooling over her flawless insta account (aprons have never been so chic), I knew this was a woman with great style who was willing to take some risks, and that the project would be a lot of fun.
As a chef, and creator of lifestyle brand Salt House which focuses on food, home and style, Sarah's biggest priority was creating a space to entertain and host dinner parties. In one of our initial conversations, she mentioned wanting the space to feel like a lively, crowded restaurant. She already had her mind set on a few key pieces, like a bold rug, a custom shelving unit, and a custom neon sign reading "be here now," which set the tone for the rest of the space.
The open concept of the kitchen and living room lent itself to creating one larger entertaining space that would spill over from the kitchen and bar into the dining room and lounge space.
Since the space is so small, every choice had to be highly functional, from storage ottomans that could both hold aprons and act as extra seating, to the shelves that hold glassware for dinner parties to using a barcart as the "entry console". The end result was a contemporary bohemian space that is completely unique and packed full of personality and function.
