What kind of house would you live in if you could just up and move without any ties holding you back? I always thought it would be fun to live in an urban row house or city loft. I wouldn’t want to live there permanently since I’m not a city girl, but I think it would be an adventure to have a place in the city. Today we’re touring a Brooklyn townhouse that would be perfect for a weekend city place, or a permanent residence.
This home appears to have its original wood floors and the owners have painted the trim a cheery orange.
The kitchen has a slightly modern vibe and good workflow. Did you notice the ginormous tomato atop the refrigerator?
In the dining room a traditional chandelier is paired with a farmhouse table and more modern chairs. This Brooklyn townhouse has an eclectic mix of furnishings.
A weekend place in the city would provide opportunity to get creative with decorating. I’m kind of fond of this large fish painting about the chesterfield sofa. The glass light fixtures remind me of bubbles in the water.
The age of the home is revealed in its details – the transom windows, the slightly steeper steps of the staircase, and the worn wood floors.
Country furnishings complete an upstairs bedroom, but a minimalist effect creates a more modern feeling.
The bathroom vanity is outfitted with over-sized drawer and door pulls.
The claw foot tub is set right inside the shower. I kind of like this idea!
Here’s the outside of the Brooklyn townhouse. Nothing fancy, but the red brick, tall mullioned windows, and the wrought iron fence lend a bit of curb appeal.
