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.
