This past weekend, we had the pleasure of visiting this majestic 26 ft-wide townhouse, located on one of Brooklyn New York finest streets, 145 Columbia Heights, in historic Brooklyn Heights. The open house viewing is currently The Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse. This gorgeous property represents the best of Brooklyn Heights, a gargantuan 66 ft-deep, triple parlor, ascending 13 ft. ceilings and preserved period details, full-floor primary bedroom suite, and five stunning landscaped and beautifully designed, well thought-out, outdoor spaces.
The Pretty In Pink Parlor Kitchen designed by Baxt Ingui Architects and BIA Interiors, LLC. A stunning large, fresh, serene space for everyday living that involved a wall removal at the rear of the parlor floor, allowed to convert a dark galley dining area kitchen into one open space. Warm blush tones carry a sense of brightness and a welcoming atmosphere. A gorgeous functioning layout ensures maximum utility. It is simply luxurious and cozy!
The showstopper Vestibule designed by Laurie Blumenfeld Design, holding center stage with its warm saturated hues, just right off the parlor kitchen. Design details showcase an ethereal wall mural by a Brooklyn-based studio paired with an expansive, sculptural light fixture with an unexpected design element draping down the wall. The vestibule and parlor kitchen were magically in sync.
The Double Parlor, inspired by the classic European charm of the 1940s, Chused & Co. carefully curated vintage furniture and art from around the world. Remaining true to designer, Jenna Chused style of modern with a nod to the past, she artfully blended antiques with a 70s vibe through the use of shade and organic movement.
You most certainly feel like you're not in Kansas anymore, when entering this European flair space.
Inspired by fashion designer, Elsa Schiaparelli, an imaginary dream client of designer, Tara McCauley, the Primary Bedroom in signature colors of Shocking Pink, was much of the inspiration from her muse. Influenced by other Surrealists such as Jean Cocteau and Salvator Dali, both of whom Schiaparelli collaborated with during Schiaparelli's career.
The second floor Guest Room inspiration derives from the design principles of Greek Revival style (symmetry, simplicity, and elegance). Designed by Studio Dorion, this exquisite bedroom is just that, simple and elegant. The smallest of rooms can often be the most inviting.
The Lounge designed by Rupp Studio, evokes color blocking that brings a strength and modern interest to the straightforward architecture, and the burnished lime walls provide a dreamy depth, and backdrop for the clients's art collection and imagination.
