Hi! This is Marni Elyse Katz from StyleCarrot
. I'm a Boston-based blogger, writer, editor, art collector, and a tiny bit interior designer. I have a serious Pinterest habit and have all but thrown away my digital camera in favor of Instagram. I curate images and items to create blog posts and articles that inspire and instruct design addicts everywhere. My aesthetic leans towards the modern, contemporary, as well as Nordic cool and artisan hipster, but I've been known to mix in a scrap of toile or a claw-foot tub to keep things fresh.
I just discovered an amazing space in Cambridge, Mass. West Bridge
, a neighborhood restaurant/bar, brings 'Brooklyn hipster' to the techy Kendall Square. Restaurateur Alexis Gelburd-Kimler and chef Matthew Gaudet, tapped Williamsburg-based Creme Design
to create a space you'd love to actually live in, not just visit for dinner. And it's easy to bring the feel of West Bridge's rustic loft home.
White brick is essential to the space, and dates back to when the building was a factory. To incorporate white brick into your own home, start by sweeping and vacuuming the surface to remove debris. Then, apply a masonry stabilizing solution to seal the surface. Finally, paint with a mix of rollers and brushes for even coverage.
