Site Visit with General Assembly :: Part 2

by Shera Nuss

Here’s Sarah Zames, owner of General Assembly

A couple of weeks ago we had our  first look at General Assembly’s latest project–a studio renovation in Brooklyn Heights. This week, we’re checking back in to see how things are  taking shape.

They’re almost done with the project, which included updating cabinetry, appliances, and floors, opening up an archway, and redoing the ceilings to add extra sound insulation. Here’s what our homeowner Jenny had to say about the project:

“Sarah and I met, and went over ideas and a budget. I quickly learned that renovations were going to cost way more than I had thought, but Sarah went out of her way to come up with some amazing ideas and suggestions that did work with my budget. She was relentless and unwavering in her goal to provide me with a beautiful living space….I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough. I am overjoyed with my new home.”

Here’s what the kitchen looked like before construction started –Jenny wanted the space to have a more modern feel.

After only 4 weeks of construction, the project is almost finished! Here’s the kitchen now, ready for its backsplash and appliances to be installed.

We love these new countertops by Caesarstone; Jenny chose ‘Quartz Reflections’ from ceaserstone’s recycled collection.

Old cabinetry was replaced with new cherry wood cabinets featuring Shaker style doors and modern hardware.

A pair of these golden pendants by West Elm hang over the new kitchen island.

Here’s a look into the main living/sleeping space. All the walls and trim were given a fresh coat of Behr Ultra Premium paint. Once cleaned up, the bed will slide into that shallow wall nook which was painted in Behr’s hue Perfect Taupe –a slight contrast to the other walls which were done in  Burnished Clay.

A bit more from Jenny:

” I wouldn’t hesitate to use Sarah, or  theSweeten for any project I have in the future…..”   Thanks Jenny!
