An intriguing collection of colourful furniture and ornaments reflects Clinton Gardens’ varied surrounds – Clinton Hill is homey and historic, once home to skilled poet Walt Whitman and now lined with parks and popups that are just as well-crafted. And this home pays homage to such creative history with its artisanal treasures.
A vintage turquoise rotary phone here and dainty pastel tea cups there catch the eye against crisp, white walls and grained woods. Stay awhile to peruse the partition full of books and take in the leafy views from the pretty balcony, or head out to explore enticing Brooklyn for further inspiration.
Drawn to New York’s energy and history, your hosts have made the city their home after growing up in California and Alabama respectively. When they’re not working in various artistic spheres, they’re likely enjoying the peace and quiet of their neighborhood.
All full-height windows and clean lines, Clinton Gardens is brilliant with incentive energy. And there are a number of spots where you might feel your own creativity spark. Whether you plan your time at the master bedroom’s cherry-red worktable or the hidden desk behind the library, or retreat to the intimate balcony for al fresco musing.
And after a day spent on the buzzing streets below, a cup of tea served in a vintage vessel from the kitchen is sure to help compose you for tomorrow’s projects.
