Steal This Look: A Hudson Valley Artist’s Above-the-Shop Bath

Ceramist Paula Greif opened her studio and boutique on Warren Street in Hudson, New York a few years ago. The narrow storefront is topped by a 400 square foot studio, where Greif now makes his home. Renovating the building with the help of his friend Stephen Shadley (interior designer Diane Keaton), Greif “did everything at the lowest cost”. The incredibly small bathroom, too, is made on a budget, with rustic, handmade accents. Here is a breakdown of its sources.
