Style Notes

Relaxed scandi. The residence has an airy and warm with lots of natural light, thanks to large walls of windows which also offer stunning views of the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn rooftops. The hosts have decorated with lush greenery, organic lines, light wood and cozy textiles - all designed with a comfort-first approach and designed with small kids in mind. We love the stylish integrated kitchen cabinetry, the mid-century-style furnishings in the living area and the colorful artwork in the kids room.

Green space, skyline views and kids events

Bordered by Williamsburg to the southwest, this northernmost of Brooklyn’s neighborhoods is not as hipster-led but just as family-friendly. Transmitter and McCarren Parks provide green space and skyline views; Polish restaurants provide the energy to keep going and free kids events abound at all points of the calendar.
