A common house on the outside, a dream mansion inside created entirely after a wish list, a project which required a long renovation that reconfigured the space. This five- bedroom Brooklyn home, built in the late nineteenth century is a typical brownstone style of that period. The red hue on the façades is given by the high iron content which this type of sandstone had.
The main, predominant paint colour is white, used in all the rooms, in contrast with the dark-brown mahogany wood floors. For the furniture they selected a colour pallet made from : chocolate Martini, ebony, steel grey, eggshell, wild bayberry, purrdie grey.Th result is a beautiful contemporary interior design with luxurious accents that transformed this small house in a dream mansion.
To create spaciousness without increasing square footage, reflective materials are used from floor to walls: glass, metal , crystals in chandeliers that create a sparkling elegance.
For assigning the highest visual comfort,the light on the ground floor, replicated on the top floor is provided by a several skylights. A characteristic of the bedrooms is the set of shelves into the wall which display books, photographs.
