This Family of Creatives Is Making Every Day in Their Park Slope Brownstone Amazing

Excerpt from Architectural Digest

"Join Amy Globus in her family’s newly renovated Park Slope, Brooklyn, brownstone: Her two lovably rambunctious children wiggle in their seats at the vast kitchen island while her husband, who was once on MasterChef and speaks with a British accent, is pulling freshly baked bread from the oven.
