Style Notes

Brooklyn brownstone. This large, spacious family home has lots of natural light, with large windows and high ceilings to create a feeling of space. The interiors are modern and contemporary, with a touch of Asian-inspired styling, some notable antiques and artwork crafted by the host’s family. Lots of the furniture is custom-designed making it a unique and comfortable space. We love the dramatic twisted pendant lighting in the dining area, the sophisticated black fireplace in the living room and the quirky soft-play-style basement room decor.
