The Beastie Boys will be forever linked to Brooklyn thanks to the now-classic song from their 1987 debut album. Mike Diamond then further (sort of) celebrated the borough when he worked with Revolver on the "Brooklyn Toile" wallpaper pattern. Now, the connection goes even deeper with a look inside the beautifully designed and decorated home he shares with filmmaker Tamra Davis and their sons.
The New York Times feature is fantastic - great photos and lots of details about the concepts and specific pieces that give the home so much style. My favorite thing about the decor is well illustrated in the image shown above - it's a true mix of price points and sources. When you have a Patricia Urquiola chair and David Weeks lamp sharing a room with a Target ottoman and a recovered vintage sofa, you know that no one is trying to fulfill some serious or stuffy "design brief", other than creating a cool, well-loved space that reflects the people who call this place home. Bravo!
