Well, I have not blogged in a really long time. It has been an insanely busy few months and I'm excited to have a minute to get back on the blog and share some of what's been keeping me occupied. I've been working in collaboration with Sarah Coleman Interior Design on the interiors of a brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn. This space has absolutely beautiful architectural detail, and we've begun to source furnishings and decorative accessories to make the space feel more finished and welcoming for the family who lives there.
Here I'm sharing some progress photos of the first phase of the project: the parlour. These spaces are meant to be where the adults of the house can unwind and entertain. We've divided this long space into a drinks area and a tv/lounge area. Still awaiting some upholstery pieces to flesh out the seating areas, plus the all-important window treatments, but I think we're really on our way to a gorgeous finished space!
Just look at the difference! How amazing is the George cocktail table from Oly Studio? Sarah and I both had our eye on that piece and were excited to have the chance to use it in this project. It's such a great counterpoint to the traditional styling of the sofa. The table on the right-hand side of the far end of the room will eventually be moved downstairs to serve as a bistro table, and this beautiful, mammoth cabinet that the homeowners already had will move to that spot and serve as a bar cabinet:
And here's one final progress shot of the fireplace. We added some height with this great carved bone mirror and étagère from Ballard Designs.
Stay tuned for more shots of the space with in all its finished glory, as well as updates on the progress of the next stages of the project: dining room and family room.
