Post modern confection
Situated in the leafy streets of Brooklyn's Sunset Park, this spacious apartment is a glorious repository of different styles. Beneath vaulted ceilings, find your own path among a smorgasbord of modern and vintage furnishings. Create a paradox alongside playful pod chairs, kitschy chinoiserie and antique dressers. Or fuse flavours among the vast countertops and gleaming steel appliances of the luminous kitchen. Refuse to be pigeon-holed with a trip out to the verdant back garden or sample the scene of bucolic Sunset Park where the neighbourhood's eclectic mix of inhabitants go to unwind.
A creative and energetic duo who work in journalism and design and who, when not collecting curios for their light-filled homestead, are taking care of their two young daughters.
The most striking impression upon entering is the grand scale of the apartment, as its vast parquet floor stretched out across the living quarters. You'll feel playful on the cushioned steel blue couch surrounded by a burnished dark wood occasional table and the delightfully kitsch chinoiserie of the painted lamp stand. Mix and match among fuchsia rugs, stylish modern lounge chairs and floor-to-ceiling bay windows that generously welcome natural light into the home.
Move past the rustic dining table and dresser crammed with curios to a dropped-lighted industrial-style kitchen where you can juggle some ingredients among streamlined cabinetry, marble counters and the inspired addition of a set of hot red school lockers for storage.
Dream differently on the low slung king-size of the master bedroom or among the pastel shades and embroidered lounge chairs of two more bedrooms. Or rewrite the rule book among the vintage bill posters and wall-to-wall lacquered bookshelves of the study. Then find fresh inspiration soaking up the sun in the tiled back garden.
Sunset Park is one of Brooklyn's most diverse neighbourhoods. The abundance of hispanic eateries along Fifth Avenue reflect the areas Latino community, while a burgeoning Cantonese population has turned Eighth Avenue into Brooklyn's Chinatown. A short walk north will take you to artsy Red Hook, where you can wander the waterfront that inspired Arthur Miller, or sip a dram in neighbourhood favourites like Sunny's or Fort Defiance. The nearby R subway line, meanwhile, will have you in downtown Manhattan in half an hour.
