In magazines, we show spaces that are finished, fully accessorized, and styled for photographs. You don’t see the details that go into these projects — many of them take a tremendous amount of thought and work by a group of talented people, from designers to architects to contractors.

We want to share this captivating documentary about a townhouse in New York City that has been restored and designed by interior designer Sarah Magness and architect Brian E. Boyle. From having to rework the façade to match the exact same shade of concrete to designing the most intricate and elegant staircase we’ve ever seen, there are a lot of surprising moments in this short doc. For anyone interested in interiors this is a must see!
