Brooklyn Heights Brownstone

This five bedroom brownstone underwent an extensive renovation to bring it up to today’s standards, including adding to the back of the house to accommodate a larger kitchen and dining area. The family who calls this place home requested a design that is layered, cheerful, warm, and collected. A healthy dose of pattern and rich colors were devised to evoke the English country style homes the couple had always admired. In the living room an antique Sultanabad rug introduces the blue, red, and green color story that weaves its way throughout the house. The newly updated kitchen was designed with a crisp black and white palette, inspired by hand painted ceramic tiles from Morocco.

From the Client

Suzanne and Lauren McGrath are the most enjoyable, professional and trusted people we have ever had the pleasure of working with in any capacity. They were our consummate partners throughout our entire brownstone renovation. They were able to quickly make sense of our incoherent style and zero in on the elements of design we found most pleasing.

From the Client

From there, everything McGrath II did brought magic, harmony, beauty and calm to our home, and ease to our renovation process. As a result, we have a home that is distinctly ours, in which every element—décor, furniture, art—brings us joy every day. Our home feels like a vacation. This is the magic of McGrath II. We are honored to call them our friends and grateful for the care and brilliance they put into our home.
