Carroll Gardens Abode

Photos by Hulya Kolabas & Catherine Tighe;

This project entailed the complete renovation of a two-family row house in Carroll Gardens. The renovation required re-connecting the ground floor to the upper floors and developing a new landscape design for the garden in the rear.

As natives of Brooklyn who loathed the darkness of traditional row houses, we were driven to infuse this space with abundant natural light and air by maintaining an open staircase. Only the front wall of the original building was retained because the existing structure would not have been able to support the additional floor that was planned.

In addition to the third floor, we added 10 feet to the back of the building and renovated the garden floor to include a rental unit that would offset a costly New York mortgage. Abundant doors and windows in the rear of the structure permit light to illuminate the home and afford views into the garden, which is located on the south side of the site and benefits from copious quantities of sunlight.

The railing is custom, designed by our firm and built by the contractor on site. Thanks for your inquiry.

Try Wayfair or Overstock for the birds. I just purchased two sets for different clients. I'm planning to spraypaint them gold and accent color for living room and another for baby room.

my mom had this Curtis Jere piece hanging in her living room for 30 years... then sold it at a garage sale for $25 in the late 1990s. what a waste!

love the floor, what colour is it?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Jazz Up Your Dining Room for Less Than $500
8. Update the paint color. You've heard it before, and it still holds true: Paint gives you far and away the most bang for your buck. Whether you limit the new hue to an accent wall or splash it across the entire space, it can completely transform the look of your dining area. Because dining rooms tend to be used most often in the evening, consider a color that will look prettier as the sunlight fades. This orange-red shade radiates coziness and warmth at nighttime.
Jennifer Ott Design added this to Zest for Orange Stays Strong in Fall 2012
Another gorgeous accent wall. Notice how everything else in the space is a light or neutral color. The bold wall color serves as a piece of artwork — as the background canvas for the bird sculptures. Simple yet stunning.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Treat Your Rooms to Pumpkin Pie Orange
A vibrant shade of pumpkin makes a great accent wall. Pumpkin is a versatile hue with the ability to feel traditional or modern.
