We have a new project up on the site, full of color and pattern. This already-renovated brick town home didn’t need a major overhaul, but the new owners did need some clever storage, cheerful patterns, and a brighter palette.
Check out the photos, and ponder: would you rather have that amazing Josef Frank wallpaper in the entry, or the whimsical balloon wallpaper on the nursery ceiling?
Check out our newest finished project, the Carroll Gardens Landmarked Brownstone. This lovely home manages to feel quiet and serene, even with a generous application of unusual colors and bold, quirky details. Do you love an arched doorway as much as we do? Go take a peek!
Welcome to another TBT Before & After! Last week we got into some big-picture changes from the Crown Heights Limestone project (check here to catch up). Today, let’s turn around and check out the back half of the parlor. (more…)
Welcome to a new feature on the BHA blog: before and afters! Every Thursday we will dig up old photos of our finished projects for some satisfying eye candy. These may include the traditional ‘before’ of what the property looked like when we first measured the space, but we may also show the projects at various points in the construction, from studs to sheetrock to finished professional photos. It’s hard sometimes to envision how a dramatic change in layout might actually feel in your home, but these may inspire you to take the plunge.
There are few things in life more satisfying than a good old fashioned make-over. Ugly Ducklings, rejoice!
Today’s Throwback is from our Crown Heights Limestone project, which remains a legend in the BHA office as one of the most intense ‘before’ houses we have measured. The photos convey some of the dark, rabbit-warren feel of the neglected rooms, but they do not convey the smell. With Project Manager Ilva Skaraine at the wheel, the floorplan got a meticulous reworking to maximize light and function, but original details and vintage fixtures helped keep the soul of the place intact. Hop into the wayback machine and take a ride. (more…)
