sneak peek: alissia and jan

by Grace Bonney

today’s sneak peek belongs to alissia melka-teichroew and jan habraken. both halves of this talented designing duo are originally from the netherlands, but now call greenpoint, brooklyn home. i popped by their sunny apartment last week and marveled at how clean, simple and fresh everything looked. i hope you’ll enjoy their apartment as much as i did- click here for many, many additional (and full-sized) images on flickr.
