In today's House Call: Elizabeth Roberts in Brooklyn, we admired Roberts' light-handed touch with the interiors, in particular, her way with fixtures and fittings. Here's a roundup of ideas we gleaned from the project.
Roberts took a leap of faith and ordered most of her light fixtures and door knobs from Thomas Hoof Produckt in Germany (in fact, she told us she discovered Hoof on Remodelista), a company founded in 1998 with a mission of bringing back classic, out-of-production fixtures for the home. "I had a great contractor who was able to rewire all the lights and work with the European door knobs," she says.
