This townhouse on Garfield Place in Brooklyn has a beautiful mix of old detail and contemporary simplicity. These virtues really become evident in the home's kitchen and bath. Both spaces are framed with gorgeous old millwork archways but contain pared-down fixtures, cabinetry, and finishes...

There are so many things we love about these two spaces it's hard to know where to start: Both the kitchen and bath retain the old house's worn wood floors, which adds a warm feeling to the spaces. The subdued black finishes are beautiful on the kitchen cabinets, bathtub, and archway into the bathroom. The bathroom walls have this natural mottled finish that's just gorgeous.

And the exposure of things like the kitchen hood exhaust and the bathtub plumbing just add another layer to the home's endearing rough-around-the-edges quality. To see the complete townhouse, visit the designers' website, Levenson McDavid Architects.
