This boy's bedroom is masculine but sophisticated, with antique furnishings and carefully placed art. Steel blue trim highlights the original architectural details, and a blue-painted twin bed mixes function with flair. Walls are covered in a rustic Imperial Basecoat Plaster.
An intricately molded tin ceiling was preserved and painted white in this eclectic Brooklyn living room. A marble and slate fireplace communicates simple and classic design, while the Persian rug adds a pop of color to the monochromatic living room.
No matter where you live, the right design can take you anywhere you want to be in the world. We know that it's true because that’s exactly what Brooklyn-based designer, Malene Barnett (https://www.maleneb.com/), founder of the eponymous lifestyle brand Malene Bhasdone has done. She’s taken her expansive Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstone on a journey from New York City all the way to the Caribbean Islands that her family originally hails from. It’s a trip that’s open to anyone who steps through the doors to find the symphony of colors, patterns and accessories that fill the space from top to bottom.
