Carroll Gardens Townhouse

A complete remodel of a three-story brownstone in Carroll Gardens. One of the challenges was to integrate a modern, industrial-tending, aesthetic into an existing brownstone with considerable architectural detail still intact. The program included developing a strong connection from the den at the rear of the garden level to the backyard. This was achieved through the opening the rear wall to the garden and the installation of complementary finishes which give the outdoor and indoor spaces a sense of continuity.

It's about 15.5' wide and 42' long total. The photographer is standing about 5' from the wall behind him.

I don't remember the exact color, but when we use white we generally go for the brightest and coolest (gray tinted) white in the series. As long as the white is very bright, it's fine to use the same color on the walls, ceilings and trim/doors. If the brightest white is not desirable or appropriate to the particular project, the wall color can be toned down a few notches, but I'd always leave the trim and ceiling as bright as possible. Most importantly, however, is the finish - flat on the walls and ceilings and satin or semi-gloss on the doors and trim. A flat finish will hide imperfections and be easier to touch up than any finish with a sheen (even eggshell) and has a softer and more inviting appearance. A sheen on the doors and trim elegantly complements a flat wall finish.
