A renovated Park Slope brownstone

And here I thought my new home had lots of beautiful architectural detail. This Park Slope, NY brownstone renovated by Abelow Sherman Architects has incredible panelling, moldings, stained glass and inlaid hardwood flooring at every turn. I am a bit sad that every single bit of woodwork has been painted (and white, blah). Yes folks, I have turned into ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE! (LOL)

Beautiful! I love the painted woodwork, but I know it's not for everyone. :)

What a beauty building. I would love to know who lives in it :)

I really like this house. In this case the white works well and doesn't break up the calm elegance.

The thing about painted woodwork is - it's still wood under there - it hasn't been removed and still creates an awesome effect.

this house has gorgeous features; choosing some woodwork to remain original would have resulted in more cachet and personality. I have noticed that French and Belgian are masters in integrating beautiful oroginal woodwork in their decor. Integrating instead of camouflaging, and often choosing warmer, neutral colour for when choosing painting, which results in warmer environment (Belgian greige coming to mind here, or theFrench multiple shades of grey).

I love this white and crisp place! All those architectural details are more evident with neutral background. When I try to imagine the same place with dark colours...
And the external architecture is breathtaking! Althrough hard to believe front and back belong to the same house!?

I love the stained glass panel over the door. The exterior has an old-fashioned appeal that is irresistible. Good work on the interior decorating, too.

To be fair, the woodwork had all been painted long before this project... Some of the inlaid detail is plaster on wood, which leads me to think it was always intended to be painted.
