This beautiful Brooklyn Mid-Century town home was originally featured in The New York Times  (via Design Attractor).

There’s so much that I’m inspired by in this room. At first glance it does look a little sparse but I think that’s why I love it. It’s simple, clean, colorful, and beautiful. Although I love tall flowy curtains, I can appreciate that they chose not to do that here. Leaving the windows open makes this room feel airy and bright, and I’m sure those dark shades work perfectly to keep out any unwanted morning light.

I’m also inspired by the very simple but colorful color palette chosen. The placement of this bed really highlights some of the architectural features in the room. Like the moldings, tall windows, high ceilings, and extended ceiling lines. The warmth of the hardwoods and other natural wood elements like the bench, mixed with the stark white ceiling and colorful bed spread makes this room a favorite for me.

My hope when doing these posts is that I’m inspired to recreate at least one of these elements in my home. It’s fun to see design that makes you think about your own living space.
