Tour a Beautiful Sitting Room in a Brooklyn Brownstone

Today is a bit of a squeeze! I'm home in Malmö for one day - squished between my return from London and my departure for Paris tomorrow (I have to keep pinching myself to check that I'm actually heading off to one of my favourite cities tomorrow! It'll be my first ever 'physical' book tour (I'm there to celebrate the launch of Lagom - Le nouvel art de vivre suédois) super exciting, but lots to prepare!). Priority number one though: taking 15 minutes out of the day to sit, relax and drool over a beautiful home. I hope you'll join me?! Today's lovely tour comes in the shape of an elegant, serene sitting room in a Brooklyn brownstone captured by one of my favourite photographers, New York based Nicole Franzen. To me, the space is a perfect blend of old and new, minimal yet warm, sleek yet comfortable. I love the brown and gold colour palette too. What a wonderful room?!

Oh how I love this room, the light is just stunning too!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A few items to note: Flos pendant lightFrama 9.5 chair, Cinnamon project brass incense burner, this lovely mustard waffle blanket is similar, source a bust sculpture here and a low antique wooden stool here.

Have a lovely day!

  1. I love the way the wood trim looks in this space. I usually think of painting trim to light up... but I could never paint it in this space! Why does it work so well?

  2. Thank you for pointing this out - I love the dark trim too, it kind of ties together the door and window frame in a beautiful way. It helps that the floor is dark as well.

  3. Wow, what a stunning house, the dark flooring and details really add a wonderful stsructure and contrast to the space, and the subdued palette is contrasted nicely with the subtle pops of colour. simplistic and elegant without being too stark or boring, lovely work!

  4. Loved the way interior is done.In detailed interior done was really looking beautiful.

    Great work.
