This 825-square foot two-level apartment in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, New York has been home to Katherine Steinberg and her daughter for two years now.
She gave the apartment a complete makeover, including relocating the staircase, after moving in. Shall we get in and see what the home has to offer.
We start off with the dining area, which features a West Elm dining table and IKEA dining chairs. When it comes to furnishing her space, Katherine draws inspiration from the ‘70s.
And investing in a Schoolhouse Electric hardware for her kitchen was quite an indulgence.
The apartment’s overall interior décor exudes a Mid-Century Modern aura. Sitting in the center of the living room is a Noguchi table. It is a hand-me-down from Katherine’s granny.
One of the most remarkable features of the home is the high ceilings. And the big corner windows in the kid’s room are a sight to behold. Likewise, large living room windows are an envy of neighbors and friends.
You may think the art above the staircase is part of the apartment’s design as it fits the space perfectly. Katherine actually bought it from a neighbor who was moving out. It looks stunningly different from various angles and creates fascinating shadows at different times of the day.
Your eye can’t miss the circles mounted on the loft wall. They are also the work of the neighbor. Katherine recognizes the wallpapering of the wall adjacent to the kitchen as her best DIY.
Away from the kitchen, the master bedroom features an Expressive Palms Duvet from Urban Outfitters.
It is worth noting that renovating the home was not without challenges. For instance, remodeling the upstairs to achieve that traditional bedroom ambiance wasn’t easy. And the closet upstairs remains unfinished.
