Inspiration & renovation in Dumbo
October 25, 2012
My sincerest apologies for not personally & abundantly swooning you as of late. I have been in the midst of a renovation, as I live within my apartment in Dumbo, and it has fully consumed me! Rather than remaining distant I though i’d share my excited & dusty mayhem with you!
The direction for the home is for it to feel elegant & sophisticated with a mix of oddities and unique pieces that gives the space an edge. I’m always seeking that balance….a little bit of glam and a little bit of grit. I love playing with contrasting elements as they add a curiosity to a room which makes me swoon. The architecture is modern & industrial, with a metal stairway leading to the 2nd floor and a double height concrete wall, so injecting warm & textural elements seemed necessary.
My most exciting purchase for the PH was finding a Dunbar tufted sofa on Ebay…score!!! I chose to recover the sofa in a muddy grey tone silk velvet….very lush and the perfect starting point and anchor for the living room.
