Williamsburg, Brooklyn NYC
The challenges of Bridget's space are few. It's a bit on the narrow side, so furniture placement is limited, the landlord won't allow tenants to paint, and she's on a busy street with quite a bit of truck traffic.... but who cares! The ceiling's are high, there's plenty of storage, bright sunny windows, and she's got a lovely backyard that she shares with the neighbors...
The look is clean, and stylized. Sticking with an almost monotone color scheme of creams, beiges, and browns, she added touches of ebony and orange to add some weight and earthiness . She gave it all some dimension by piling on the texture — there's leather, wood, linen, glass, wool, horn, crisp cotton, silk, and metal. The decor hits all eras too — primitives, victorian, mid century modern, 70's lucite, and present day contemporary. Keeping everything meticulously edited allows it to all melt together cohesively. Take a look!
