Staying on topic with Whitney's love of German design, I loved this article and slide show in this past Sunday's NY Times. Architect Thomas Warnke found this funky old carriage house in Red Hook on of all places, Craigslist.
Old ceiling beams re-purposed into shelves.
I'm always a fan of fresh pale blue walls, and I think the little lounge area under the stairs just rocks!
