brooklyn brownstone

this hip Brooklyn brownstone in the Fort Greene neighbourhood of Brooklyn, NYC, is my kind of gorgeous. Modern with personality, bright yet refined, new mixed with vintage. Love it. I remember this neighbourhood from our recent trip to NYC. We went through to the Brooklyn Flea which is in the Fort Greene hood and I remember the bold pops of colour on every corner. The bright colours make an unusual contrast to the late-19th Century terraced brownstones that are such a familiar sight in the Brooklyn area. The home owners of this newly remodelled brownstone have a penchant for pop art, vibrant colours and fresh clean design which is translated stylishly throughout. I love the subtle, private front view of the house which belies the display cabinet feel of the double-volume glassed back view.
