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.
When it comes to designing a home, anyone can have amazing style. Of course, if you already happen to be an interior designer, it certainly helps. Homepolish (https://www.homepolish.com/) designer, Amy Row has created an amazing dreamscape in her home in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. There, Amy, her husband, Matthew, and their puppy, Rye, enjoy life in a subtle, laid-back vintage interior.
Home is all about family. It’s about creating a space where every member of the family feels represented, connected, and safe. Of course most of that happens outside of the realm of interior design, but when it’s reflected in the design of the interior, that’s when a space becomes truly special. Nestled away in a quiet corner of Brooklyn, New York, one home manages to capture all of these things spectacularly. In it, David Land (http://www.davidaland.com/), a well-known photographer and video director, lives with his husband, author Rumaan Alam (http://rumaanalam.com/) and their sons, Simon and Xavier. With family roots in Russia, Bangladesh, and African American heritage, the diversity of the family provides a fertile ground for design that is beautifully representative with a melange of cultural pieces, family heirlooms and items collected during travels.
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.
