Why we have a crush on this property:
Step aside, subtlety. This 1887-built Bed-Stuy brownstone is living proof of how glorious a home can be when you embrace everything you love. While the exterior is pretty demure, save a burst of bright pink roses, one step into the foyer leaves no question about the homeowners’ sense of style. Currently owned by Queenie and Ruby, the disco-loving musical duo known as Sateen, the rooms are filled with fluffy poodles (real and decorative), stunning floral chandeliers, and the color pink (that is to say, the finer things!).
It’s hard to say what the best spot in the house is. It could definitely be in the bathtub with golden claw feet, filled to the brim with bubbles. Any of the eleven (!) closets are certainly in the running, where I’m imagining getting dressed montage-style each day, backed by a Donna Summer soundtrack. Sitting out in the lovely, grassy back garden or perched on the front stoop overlooking the tree and brownstone-lined street sounds pretty sweet, too.
But honestly, if I’m picking just one view to pin to my mood board, it’s gotta be the kitchen: The cabinetry is painted in pale bubble gum shade of pink that is truly eye candy, and grounded by a bold black-and-white checkerboard floor, it looks like a page pulled from a retro ad for Barbie’s Dreamhouse (right in time for the reboot) or a tea party-worthy scene from “Alice in Wonderland.” Either way, I am moony over this extremely pretty in pink kitchen and thinking of ways to tell my landlord I’m doing a little repainting…
The cottage is listed for $1,650,000 by Sara Schwartz and Mary Wyatt, The Corcoran Group.
