Memories and nostalgia often play a key role in home design and often homeowners want to replicate a feature of their childhood home or create a residence that takes them closer to their rustic roots.
Translating a couple’s love for books and music into a stylish innovative and light-filled home in Brooklyn BFDO Architects completely revamped the interior of this gorgeous rowhouse.
Since the couple worked from home incorporating a full-fledged home office that offered privacy and smart functionality was another important part of the home’s design. Built on a tight budget by KEM STUDIO the inviting house uses a white and wood color palette to usher in a sense of harmony even while inviting the outdoors inside.
The cheerful white and wood color palette is continued in the bedrooms and bathrooms as well with industrial style lighting indoor plants and modern décor adding a hint of color. Leaving much of the living space open and keeping the furniture additions down to a bare minimum the revamped loft feels both spacious and cozy even while reminding us of its historic past.
The new cheerful interior of this aged house reflects the specific aesthetic and lifestyle choices of its owners – Brooklyn-based writer Gayle Forman and her musician-librarian husband.
With changing times needs and aesthetics homeowners are increasingly turning towards smart renovations to give these classic townhouses a modern sheen. The fabulous showcases one such beautiful transformation as an old and dark three-story townhouse was turned into a light-filled inviting home by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture and Design. The new loft-like interior combines industrial elements with contemporary sheen to deliver the best of both worlds.
