TERRAZZO.

I'm obsessed with terrazzo. And long before it was popping up in every design trend round-up. Thankfully, it makes total design sense for our building and we are installing it on two levels flanking the existing marble stair.

LADY POWER.

One of my favorite things about the #maisonbodega history is a lineage of powerful women. Despite it being built in 1920, when ladies in Minnesota were just getting the right to vote, all of the newspaper articles about this property cite a lady at the helm of the story.

IMPERFECTION.

Inspired by Vincenzo De Cotiis on renovation / "It's very slow", he says of bringing such a space to just the right moment, one both timeless and out of time, 'and there is no way to speed it up. Imperfection takes longer than perfection".

WINDOWS.

The windows in this building are a blessing and a curse. Beautiful with their "patina", but oh so much work to restore. Their wavy glass makes for the most incredible light in the space and the proportions of the mullions are one of our favorite things about the interior + exterior.
