A calm Brownstone to brighten up your Monday!

Monday, 5 December 2016

Why, hello! There's been quite a few Christmas posts here on MSH over the past few days (including a watch give-away - still time to enter hurry!), DIY inspiration, a Nordic gift guide and even a few festive touches from my own home! So today I thought I'd give us all a breather and go for something non-Christmassy! A beautiful Brooklyn brownstone dating back to 1910 to be precise. Home to Jeff Madalena, co-founder of clothing brand Oak and Jason Gnewikow, a former musician and graphic designer and founder of Athletics agency- you could say creativity is in their blood! The pair has transformed their four storey home into a magnificent, pared-back monochrome space in which to unwind from their hectic daily lives. Think statement pieces, quirky art and a lovely roaring fire.....

Wow! There's so much breathing space it makes me feel calm and relaxed just looking at it (not bad for a Monday!). Loving the large plants and soft textiles too - which give the home a lovely soft touch.

A few items I know and love: sitting room- Serge Mouille floor lamp, sheepskin throws, recreate white side cabinets like these using the bestå series from IKEA (like the top stylists!) - and pep up with SuperfrontDining room- Salt chairs, bedroom - white linen bedding.

If anyone can shed some light on those fab ceiling and wall lights, I'd be so happy!

And a little link love to brighten up the start of the week:

Three other brownstones I love - including one with a mid-century touch, one with striking contrasts and a cool monochrome space. Got to love Brooklyn!

What a beautiful table setting? (those stonewashed napkins!).
