Upon first meeting a new client who had just purchased this late-1800’s three-story home in the heart of a brownstone-lined street in one of Brooklyn’s most charming neighborhoods, we knew we were in for a colorful journey. Well-traveled, well-read and fluent in many languages (to our delight) the client surprised us at each meeting with tailored outfits in bright & dreamy solid oranges, yellows, blues and greens… so we knew our design queues had to come from her wardrobe. And so it was that blues and reds were selected as the base notes of our color scheme, with shades of mustard and faint yellow interspersed throughout the home. Pattern and texture find their way in through the weaves of area rugs, pillows and simple bands of fabric on the tall draperies lining the sun-filled windows facing the street and private garden. We had two primary objectives for this project: First, by creating a collage of art, objects & furniture from around the world, we hoped to create a home that felt as if it had evolved over time and reflected our client’s many years of traveling. Our second objective was to create a vibrant mix of color in an attempt to capture her fun & unique personality. We think we’ve accomplished our mission, and come through with flying colors.
