A vintage American Standard farmhouse sink with a striped skirt is the centerpiece of this modern kitchen that features open shelving reclaimed from a mill in upstate NY, a wall of floor to ceiling double hung windows and a fabulous wood block kitchen island made of a rich brown Sapele. (above)
Living room, kitchen, dining room, guest bedroom and even a small bath all in one space! How could that be? Well it is in this Brooklyn, New York townhouse. Located in the Park Slope area of New York, this duplex was completed renovated by the team at The Brooklyn Home Company. A success! Love the bright airy nature of the space, the huge windows and the surprising design and decor twists...a lot in one area...but it all works. This townhouse does feature more than one floor...but it is this multifunctional space that steals the show.
The custom sculpture above the wonderful fireplace makes a bold modern statement amidst the room's classic architectural detailing including the white wide plank wood floors and the home's original ceiling beams that were discovered during the renovation. (above)
A ladder right behind the dining room leads up to a guest room loft. (above)
The iconic white swoosh shaped Panton chairs and a reclaimed wood dining room table reside in front of a backdrop of floor to ceiling custom built-in book shelves and cabinets. (above)
The bathroom off the living room has a grand wood barn door salvaged from a New Hampshire sheep farm in New Hampshire. (above)
I like this...! What do you think readers?
P.S. Spent the day running around Los Angeles yesterday...am exhausted...the day included a stint in Griffith Park, on a golf course, at a middle school and then at an art gallery...and all for work...go figure! Quite an entertaining day...kind why I like my day job.
P.P.S. Please go to the COCOCOZY FACEBOOK PAGE to see an awesome 25 foot wide painting of a ship by artist John Millei! A sight to see...really! Let me know what you think of this contemporary artist's work!
