Passing time Built in the late 1800s, Putnam Place II has high ceilings, polished wood and majestic carved mantles that have been thoughtfully preserved. But this home’s furnishings hail from the present day. The open-plan living area is filled with mid-century modern designs in pretty hues: an avocado-coloured dining chair, a turquoise low-slung sofa, mustard-toned artworks. You’ll find bedside tulip tables and butterfly chairs in the master bedroom, and the nursery is just as uplifting. It comes equipped with a wooden crib, and the hardwood floor is topped with a patterned rug while a wall is coloured by a collection of playful drawings. Sentimentalists Your hosts are a family who love gardening and hosting dinner parties with friends. They’ve made the kitchen this home’s focal point, with its sunny seating and open-plan design. Pared back The bright living area stretches from the retro armchairs to the kitchen and dining area, with full-length windows and a decadent mirror atop the mantle. There are seats for four around the dining table, and your hosts’ collection of crockery fits neatly in the shelved alcove. You’ll find well-stocked bookshelves and a pair of custom-built desks in between, or head to the bedroom where a tower of books and a fur-draped sling chair make for a cosy reading spot. For more active adventures, Fort Greene Park is a short walk away, and the neighbouring streets are lined with bakeries and bustling shops.
