My Houzz: Antiques and curio items add interest to a Brooklyn brownstone

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The mantel is decorated with skulls and Dia de los Muertos figurines. “I’ve been fascinated by skulls and skeletons since I was a little kid — the odd idea of this creature-seeming structure within our bodies,” says Marzolf. “As a result, my friends and family have often gifted me with them over the years, and I have also purchased many of them on my travels. They’re from all over, including Jamaica, Mexico, Brazil and New Orleans.”The walls are painted a creamy shade of white, Benjamin Moore’s Milkyway 2018-70.
Skeletons in the … fireplace. Brooklyn homeowner Maya Marzolf has collected skulls and Dia de los Muertos figurines for years. Her collection includes objects from all over, including Jamaica, Mexico, Brazil and New Orleans. Since she can’t make a fire in this decorative surround, she placed her favorite pieces there instead.See the rest of this home
