Plascon House Tour: A Topsy-Turvy Brooklyn Brownstone
An old, outdated Brownstone apartment in Brooklyn is given a second chance with a topsy-turvy interior that now boasts a mix of elegant finishes.
Step inside this two-storey apartment, newly renovated to enhance the flow, functionality and interior styling of this home. The beautiful kitchen is well-lit with playful pops of canary yellow for added exuberance in this space. Hints of brass, blue, grey and a funky patterned backsplash of Moroccan mosaics add to the quirky look.
The apartment has an unconventional topsy-turvy layout; and yet, every area of the home has been beautifully designed to cater to the needs of the owners. A gallery wall of framed artwork adds a personal touch while greenery brings freshness to this space. Many of the artworks and furnishings have been collected from travels and thrift stores – adding a playful and vintage touch to this home.
We love the mix of vibrant colours that bring this older home to life. The pink Muuto sofa is a beautiful piece, bringing a feminine touch to the sitting room. A mix of stripes, colours and even a vintage chandelier with a pair of boots suspended from the ceiling adds quirkiness here.
Many of the home’s elements and period features have been lovingly restored, such as original fireplaces, wood floors and ornate plasterwork. It’s a mix of old and new here with a vintage fireplace dressed up with hints of eclectic colour and fresh greenery.
The master bedroom is bright and in keeping with the eclectic look of the rest of the home. Here, vibrant art features above a vintage bed which was actually found in a salvage yard! A pair of bold table lamps with ruffled bases bring some depth and texture to this space too.
The bathroom, with huge shower, is simple yet mesmerising. Here, round medallions are used as tiles, from floor to ceiling, adding definition and texture to this luxury space. We love the addition of hanging blooms and an open window for added light into this space.
