Faux taxidermy adds a whimsical touch to the foyer of this traditional Brooklyn townhouse. Dark stain on moldings and doors complement the traditional architecture, and soft gray walls carry through to the home's interior.
This side chair is a perfect moment demonstrating the layering of color and pattern that is central to this interior’s design. A mid-century chair has been upholstered in a festive block print pattern. To top it off, an African wax print pillow by a favorite Brooklyn boutique, xNasozi (http://www.osxnasozi.com/), completes the color story.
New York City is a nesting doll, made up of cities within cities, all constantly in the act of being built, with more popping up all the time. One of the newest places to explore is Long Island City. Not to be confused with Long Island itself, the Long Island City sits on the western edge of Queens, right at the point where the Queensboro Bridge ends its trip from Manhattan. There, in a luxurious twenty-third floor apartment with commanding views of both Brooklyn and Manhattan, interior designer Tanika Goudeau Hochhauser, the creative principle of the design firm Depsyn (https://www.depsyn.com/) makes her home with her husband, Brian, using all of her design abilities to ensure that the view inside her space is every bit as breathtaking as the one outside her window.
