Interiors: Brooklyn Bygones

September 28, 2012 § 4 Comments

Having been built in 1890, it’s only natural for this Brooklyn home to have a ‘parlour’ floor. A sitting room in a private residence – charming, indeed.  And, there’s that original wood closet (yes… closets looked like that back then), cleverly transformed to house the new, stainless steel stove and european-sized fridge in the kitchen.

But that’s pretty much where the ‘bygones’ end. This home is modern and sleek, balanced with pieces of vintage treasure and industrial accents. The highlight: the third floor master bedroom suite complete with a luxurious free-standing tub across from an actual wood burning fireplace. I especially love the floating shelves, built in storage cabinets and recessed wall niche – room for storage and display of the homeowners quirky collection. And have you noticed? There’s a another fireplace on that very floor… across from the bed!

Sigh… some homes have all the luck!
