Before you roll your eyes at the fact that there’s another book about Brooklyn design, hear me out. What makes this book special, is that it documents the interior spaces of Brooklyn in a way that I haven’t seen before. We all know that Brooklyn has drastically changed in the last few years, but it’s rare to get the opportunity to peek into some of the private homes or have the luxury of time or money to check out all the new public spaces – restaurants, bars and hotels – that have popped up around the borough.
It’s perhaps not a surprise that my favorite part of Design Brooklyn are the homes. The book finds homes that have managed to combine both the old (Brooklyn Brownstones) with the new (modern furniture) as well as homes that take a more literal approach to preserving history and even brand new innovative spaces. It gave me a new appreciation for the sheer volume of design happening in Brooklyn every day. Go Brooklyn! –Amy
