Contemporary Design for a Young Family in Brooklyn, New York

We designed the great room and kids room for a young couple, their 3-yr old son and dog. They already had great natural light, a luxurious indoor-outdoor space and some good pieces. My design vision for this home was contemporary, playful and sophisticated and needless to say, I delivered. The homeowners smile every time they walk in the door. Let me take you through the spaces we designed for this sweet family. Hope you enjoy what you see!! Photography by Daniel Wang.

I love this living room. Soft beautiful lines of the swivel chair and the jigsaw puzzle coffee table make me swoon. The neutral rug with some greys, blues and whites feels luxe and grounds the room. Its hard to believe, but its an indoor outdoor rug. This room is right next to the entry door and the door to their outdoors space, so this dual-function was critical. The Kelly Wearstler accent pillows in different sizes add some pattern and compliment the art. The sconce and the fiddle fig plant take our eye up to the high ceilings.

Wider angle shot of the great room shows you the living room, dining room and a peak into the start of the kitchen. The fiddle fig leaf plant in its basket with black base keeps it soft and playful. The beautiful dining table with its porcelain marbeled top extends, the chairs clean with a simple wipe for this young house, and the walnut legs complement the millwork in the kitchen. The dining room console is stunning with its acrylic base and lacqured burled wood in onyx finish anchored by a simple round mirror with brass accents. The white and fuschia flowers bring some softness to this space.The homeowners had the chandelier from before and it brings so much character to the space.

Lets talk about making a statement… this wallpaper makes for such a stunning entry. Its organic pattern brings movement welcoming you into the home. This entry is visible from every part of the great room and styled to perfection with accessories that are personal and collected.

Another photo of this stunning room… the swivel chair in the living room lets you be part of the party when it moves to the kitchen. The bar stools are minimal and end just where the beautiful marble starts. The pendant lights with its double sphere clear glass let your eyes flow visually and add to the design with the brass details and black cord. Styled to perfection with the long foliage and cookbooks!!

This little boys room is super-hero themed and all things blue. Our little client chose this wallpaper from Schumacher because the name was so playful. Custom storage bed with bleached walnut finish brings in warmth and texture against the wallpaper. Neutral bedding with some super hero accent pillows and super hero artwork create a theme without a huge investment. Swap the art and pillows for Harry Potter in a few years and viola… best room for years!! My other favourite design moment in the room is this custom window seat drenched in sunlight… the perfect spot to lounge with family and friends.

Beautiful custom dresser with leather pulls create much needed storage and style on the other side of the room against a simple painted wall. The accent lightning bolt marquee light brings the super-hero theme and floating shelves above create space for rotating gallery of art, toys and of course books. Felt baskets provide easy access to toys, blankets and more books for our little reader.

Detailed shot of this media console… it fits the niche like a glove and compliments the walnut from the kitchen bringing in some wamrth to this end of the room. Of course we had to bring that beautiful wallpaper in this frame. Its wrap for this one. Loved every minute designing this fun and stylish home.
