THIS WAS LAST WEEK’S MOST-READ POST on Brownstoner, which by now must qualify as the old gray lady of Brooklyn websites, Why? Who knows? But it came as a pleasant surprise to this gray lady. It is a lovely renovation by architect Kimberly Neuhaus, and the post is full of good advice for making a 17-foot-wide home feel not so tight, and pretty pictures of interiors by the ubiquitous Tamara Eaton. If you haven’t, take a look.
THE REVELATION HERE IS HOW WELL classic mid-20th century furnishings by Vladimir Kagan, Milo Baughman, Jens Risom et al, along with contemporary high-end craft furnishings from local makers City Joinery and BDDW, work in a c.1910 Park Slope row house. The sensitive mix was pulled off by Brooklyn-based architects Delson or Sherman and interior designer Kiki Dennis.

Above, the dining room in a new two-story addition, seamlessly integrated with the garden. Check out the full post, including a really great farmhouse kitchen, here.
