Here's How a Fashion Editor Gave Her Generic Brooklyn Apartment a Major Upgrade

When fashion editor Taylor Harris found this one-bedroom apartment in a hip, family-friendly neighborhood just steps away from Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum, she knew the search was over. It was perfect, save a few design flaws. Think generic laminated surfaces and outdated, stuffy wallpaper. So to ensure her new home lived up to its full potential as a creative, stylish oasis, she enlisted Homepolish designer Michelle Zacks's to take on the project. 

The goal was to create a home that reflected Harris's style-savvy eye, amplified the existing space, and felt as liveable as it did sophisticated. This meant completely rethinking the layout, renovating both the bathroom and the kitchen, and replacing every single piece of décor Harris had accumulated over the years. Though the process wasn't without its pitfalls, we have to say the finished product is pretty incredible. Get a taste of her new digs below along with Zack's tips and expert advice throughout should you be setting out on your own redesign project.
