Posted on: No Comments

This Brooklyn Brownstone was purchased by a young family and re configured to once again be a single family home. On the parlor floor we mixed eclectic furnishings in the traditional setting of the original living room to give a modern twist to the space. Upstairs whitewashed floors make the more casual family room feel spacious and airy. All three bathrooms were completely renovated and we selected paint colors, wall coverings, furniture and fixtures for the entire home.
