Brooklyn Brownstone

The interiors of this townhouse in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn were deeply influenced by the owners’ New Orleans upbringing. Purchased from an English professor who restored many of the original details, we were hired to furnish and bring the rooms to new life.  The couple’s collection of contemporary Louisiana artwork, including a post-Katrina photograph by Frank Relle that hangs in the parlor, provided a wonderful juxtaposition to the mix of American, English, French and Swedish antiques we curated for each of the rooms. Little details like a guest room quilt embroidered to look like a map of the city of New Orleans weave this family’s southern heritage into their new home.

From the Client

....We knew already that their aesthetic of comfortable elegance fit with our vision, but I was truly impressed at how they aligned their vision for our house with our own. They were extremely respectful of our needs and hesitations while pushing us towards fresh, exciting, but always graceful pieces and fabrics...

From the Client

....they followed through with us even after the installation of the major new furnishings to ensure that the finishing touches–from lamp shades to mantle–piece nicknacks to the placement of art–were just as they should be.
