A renovated Park Slope brownstone

Posted on Wed, 3 Sep 2014 by KiM

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)

Kellie says:

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

Carol says:

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

Sally says:

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

Wanda says:

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

Oh my that kitchen floor… love it…

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).

Ombia says:

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!?

Nice. But hating the orange dining chairs ! ­čÖü

RWC says:

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.

Rosie says:

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.
