Name: Rachel & Russell
Location: Boerum Hill —Brooklyn, New York

We’ve lived in our amazing apartment in Brooklyn for almost 3 years now. I spent countless hours arranging a mix of purchased, made (e.g. the RIOT painting and wood/metal plant stand), and found (e.g. our vintage typewriter and metal stool) objects into the decor we live with today. Of course there are things I wish I had done differently, but overall I think I did a great job maximizing the beauty of our space.

Our living/dining area is a warm industrial style with hints of organic modernism. The downstairs office is a clean Scandinavian vibe that leaves space for ideas when Russell and I are hard at work at our desks. And we are lucky enough to have a private backyard! With a lot of hard work we were able to turn the once-pile-of-weeds into a blooming oasis. In the summer months we love to entertain on our patio or drink wine and watch the fireflies.

Thanks, Rachel & Russell!
