black and white Moroccan tiles in a bathroom with a platform tub by Workstead
Moroccan type mosaic tiles in cream and black. (above)

I like the work of Brooklyn based design collective, Workstead.  Something very earthy, raw yet modern and eclectic about their aesthetic.  A blend of nostalgia and new.  Very cool.

Love the black and cream tile in the bath above.  I adore the decorative wall molding in the living room below.  I am picking out the wall molding for my bedroom today.  Was going to just do what I had before…large squares and rectangles…but loving the etched rectangle wall molding shown below.  Hmmm…considering.

Subtle detail added to the kitchen cabinets in the form of custom L shaped wood door handles. (above and below)

Is this your style?  What do you think of Workstead’s work?

Happy Tuesday!


P.S.  Multi million dollar answer – Yesterday, most of you answered correctly on the post about the two multi million dollar apartments.  The Tribeca loft is a mere $15.8 million…while the 5th Ave/62nd apartment is over $19 million!

P.P.S.  Stopped by my little tiny cottage in the Hollywood Hills over the weekend with TE.  The wood floors are in!  Not stained yet…but they have been laid!  So excited….

P.P.P.S.   Spent 2.5 hours of my life watching the Bachelor last night.  Have lost brain cells.  Will spend day trying to figure out how to rejuvenate those cells lost.  Uhhhhhhhh….duhhhhhhh….uhhhhhh….

P.P.P.P.S.  COCOCOZY GIVEAWAY – Tomorrow, I’m doing a giveaway!  Don’t know what we’re giving away yet…but it will be something good from the COCOCOZY Collection!  Stay tuned for details!

    I love those wood handles. Do you think they are custom made?
    your floor look beautiful. I agree with the grey color to keep the bright feeling in your little tiny cottage.

    I love the etched rectangular molding. And the rustic floors. And the chair, and the wall-light. Heck, pretty much everything about that room!

    I love your new white oak floors. Can you post pics of them stained… I was thinking of using white oak floors in our next remodel and would love to see how they look after the stain. Thanks again!

    Love Workstead. Their spaces look high-end, yet relatable.

    Rather than modern blah McMansions, I’m into period details. We built a new home but designed it in the style of a 1920s Craftsman bungalow. For the fixed elements we tried to evoke the feeling of the 1920s, like installing medicine cabinets with Shaker trim.
