HARD BY THE BROOKLYN NAVY YARD, in a rented top floor loft in a former warehouse, Alicia Preciado has built and salvaged her way to a unique space with rustic/industrial character.

NO NEUTRALS OR MONOTONES for these color-happy folks, the owners of a Fort Greene row house recently renovated with a modernist bent by the Brooklyn Home Company.

My recently re-inaugurated column for Brownstoner.com, the behemoth Brooklyn real-estate website, looks at how up-and-coming designer Tamara Eaton freshens up an exceptional Victorian brownstone, on the purchase of which the new homeowners had already blown their budget, with little more than paint and wallpaper.
