The Insider: Rethinking a Carroll Gardens Brownstone for the 21st C.

2014RS-32FIR-318

 

 

I DIG THE AUDACITY of Tamara Eaton‘s interior design for this no-compromises reno in Carroll Gardens: a five-story overhaul of a decrepit brownstone by Brooklyn’s CWB Architects, complete with elevator, new roof deck, and lots more (the homeowner’s quote from when I first wrote about this project for New York Cottages and Gardens magazine: “We took it down to the studs, and then we had to replace the studs”). Below, the front parlor nods to formality and tradition with billowy curtains and a crystal chandelier, but over the fireplace hangs digital-age art by contemporary artist Wayne Gonzalez. The furniture mix includes antique Chinese chairs, a yellow leather barrel chair, an Empire style love seat, and a flying-saucer coffee table. To see the rest of the building as it appeared on Brownstoner, go here.
