A really cool Brooklyn townhouse

Posted on Thu, 20 Nov 2014 by KiM

I don’t know how I missed the reveal of this incredibly awesome townhouse last year in the New York Times. Owned by Beastie Boys’ Mike D, he lives in this 3200 sq ft Brooklyn home built in 1853 with his wife and 2 boys, and they spent 6 months and about $500K on renovations. The result is phenomenal – eclectic and funky decor that works so well with the traditional architecture. I love all of the touches of brass throughout (especially the kitchen *GASP*), and the fun Brooklyn Toile wallpaper (from Flavor Paper) was designed by Mike. I could just pack up my clothes and the cats and hubby and move right in without changing a single thing.

Jared Hayden says:

I've loved this place long time. It epitomizes "cool" to me–not because the people living there are trying to be cool, but because they just are. I don't think they made one misstep. A true inspiration.

Nicole says:

I completely agree with Jared! Amazing stuff–all of it. But then again, it IS Mike D's place, so should we be surprised?!? No sleep 'til Brooklyn, ya'll…

Aida says:

Love all of it! The garden, the terrace, the tall windows, the light, the floors!, and the whole air about it… I could live in it from the moment I enter it, without a single change ­čÖé

Niche Interiors says:

Wow, totally eclectic. The artwork, the lighting, the interesting pieces of furniture, etc. Everything about this place is really interesting.

Jen says:

I love it, especially the deer photography in the hallway, does anyone know who produced that?

Gloria Burroughs says:

The art work, my goodness! The colors! Whoo that crimson!
