The Insider: Apartment to Loft in Brooklyn Heights

THIS WEEK, THE INSIDER, my regular Thursday column on Brownstoner.com, shows a duplex apartment in Brooklyn Heights, made loft-like by the judicious removal of walls and dropped ceilings.

Masterminded by Brooklyn-based designer Elizabeth Roberts, it employs two of my favorite decorating gambits: a monumental wall of bookshelves — in this case, wrapping around three tall windows in the main living space — and the use of strong color in a kitchen (Ralph Lauren’s Surrey).

To see the whole project, with lots of ‘befores’ and construction shots, click right on over here.
