Living room with Greek key wallpaper, decorative moldings and a bright rug in Brookyln

Loving this 4-story redesigned and renovated historic brownstone in Brooklyn. Yet another fabulous design creation from The Brooklyn Home Company.

I like the fact that the design takes advantage of everything old in the house but adds a new twist to all of the fantastic architectural detail throughout.

Have some friends of friends who live in Brooklyn and who also have a fabulous renovated brownstone…I may have to “impose” and ask if I can take some pictures there next time I am in New York…just might…

Well for now, here is this great brownstone!

  1. Beautiful! Totally loving the dressing room. It’s so cheery and fun!

  2. All of those rooms are beautiful but where/how do I find the moldings like in the 4th picture. Talk about a beautiful detail. I attempted googling for “cake molding” like you called, but it just results in baking molds. Not quite the same haha.

  3. ADORE the dressing room. If this were my dressing room, I would never leave it. I would have my girlfriends over for martini parties or afternoon tea in that room.

  4. That’s my house! So funny, my mom ran across your blog and couldn’t believe that it was our Brownstone! Funny too, my nickname is also Coco. Brooklyn Home Company did an AMAZING job on our renovations, love everything about it 🙂
    Thanks for the shout out!

  5. I love the Brownstone! The way that they blended the modern elements with softer, more cottage components (such as the slipcovered chairs) make it eclectic and interesting. I also adore Kelly Wearstler’s trellis wallpaper… very fresh!
