Just in from Jonathan, the true confessions of a design junky who is in the midst of a big project that probably feels like it will never end. This is a lot of work. We look forward to more pics as this progresses.
Dear AT, I promised some people on yesterdays thread to have pictures today of 3 areas in my townhouse in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I attach them with the following comments:
Master Bathroom: as you can see our bathroom is a wretched horrible pit that is being totally renovated. Blech!
Changing Room: to cut the long, narrow length of the parlour floor of the townhouse, we are building a changing room here. Each wall will have a large shelving unit
Fireplace Living Room: and here it is, the TV area. As you can see, the area above fireplace begs for a 42 inch plasma but people on apartment therapy call me cheesey and Tony Soprano. Hence I shall relegate it to the cubby area to the right
Backyard: this was a disgusting chain link fence surrounding yard in the back of the townhouse. We are building a Mr. Miyagi-like Japanese wood fence around it. The idea here is that horizontal slats will widen the feel
Finally the library bookshelf. It sort of sucks. People yesterday told me to eat the money and order pre-mades from the Italians.
I know these pictures aren't great. Sorry. I will take better ones when all this mess is finished.
