A restored and modernized Brooklyn brownstone

Posted on Fri, 15 Jan 2021 by KiM

It’s been a minute since I shared a Brooklyn brownstone on the blog. More often these days it’s London Victorians that I come across that make my heart skip a beat but the home of interior designer Gillian Dubin reminded me how fabulous brownstones can be – especially with this much of its original architecture maintained and restored. This home in particular is blowing my mind. From ceilings to floors, the details are beyond incredible. (Photos: Noe DeWitt)

Lisa says:

Exquisite! The floors are to die for and I just love the way the color brown is used throughout the ground floor. I love everything about this house.

Misty Pesto says:

Kim, it’s fab, thanks for sharing. It’s uplifting to see so much beauty.

Jill says:

How sad that the children’s bedrooms are so intensely gendered.

Leanne says:

What’s so SAD about that Jill? They’re lovely rooms and any child would be lucky to have them. I’m guessing you’re one of those tiresome people who can find fault with anything – that’s what’s SAD!

tannnie says:

so Jill you know this family and the genders of the children who occupy ‘said’ rooms?
I see no evidence (name/photograph, etc) in either room,
I think it’s sad you would assume the gender of the child based on the decor/toys.
I prefer to just be delighted and inspired by the beautiful spaces here at D2I
Thank you ladies for your work!
