A modern lighthearted and comfortable Park Slope Brownstone


A Brooklyn apartment full of inspiring ideas and details

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!  It seems like another lifetime ago when I used to live in Brooklyn, first Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and then Park Slope.  I’m full on domestic now and living in the suburbs of Washington DC, but there are times when I miss the quirky apartments and having 10 cafes all within 5 blocks.  The apartment below is much nicer than any of mine were, but it still makes me nostalgic for Park Slope living!

 For a New York apartment, the natural light in this place is amazing.  Ant that mirrored mantle!  I thought it was the entrance to another room at first.  Notice the tin ceiling, which was a common characteristic of the brownstones there.

Exposed brick was another fun element in a lot of apartments.  These old buildings were full of character and charm.


So serene and beautiful!

I really like the wallpaper and pink door in the bathroom.

The ceiling is actually painted a soft mint to complement the antique runner.

A fun blue home office and guest room.

Principal of Wills Design Associates Lauren Wills is a friend of the family and helped them transform their home into a modern and comfortable space.  Wills loves creating contrast and a statement, so the black accent wall in the master was a way to do that without being over the top.

Check out the lamp table wit the bird legs!  What do you think of this light-filled Park Slope home?
