OK so maybe some of the decor is a little too "What's Eating Gilbert Grape." But of course the owners of Brooklyn's Moon River Chattel have an amazing second home. Looking at photos of it fuels a silly fantasy where I buy a derelict old place and fix it up myself with whimsical touches here and there ... Alas, I haven't a DIY bone in my body let alone the patience needed for such a project. Still, a girl can dream.
The two pedestal sinks in this remodeled 1908 bathroom leave most of the new limestone floor exposed, accentuating the room's volume. The 8-foot-wide room retains the original medicine cabinets and claw-foot tub. Formal white molding contrasts vividly with rich azure walls. (Photo: Photo: David Wakely; Designer: Brad Polvorosa)
