Paints on display at Color Atelier’s new Brooklyn showroom.

Color Atelier in Brooklyn

“The Old-World patina of lime paint is a designer’s dream—dappled texture, a natural pigment-based palette, and entirely chemical-free. But it’s typically been hard to find, until now. San Francisco–based Color Atelier, founded by husband-and-wife duo Olivier Garnier and Brucu K., just opened a Brooklyn outpost where their lime and plaster paints in the most gorgeous subtle colors are available for East Coasters to view and purchase in person.” – Eugenia Santiesteban Soto, Design & Decoration Director

Warren Street Hotel designed by Kit Kemp

“We want the funk—and Warren Street Hotel’s got it! Kit Kemp’s newest hotel in Tribeca is a treasure trove of design whimsy, boasting many of Kit’s own designs and found fabrics, including some fun new collaborations (GP&J Baker, Christopher Farr, Spode).
