Brooklyn today fosters creative communities as never before, and they have cultivated a renegade approach to style--one rooted in broad-minded eclecticism and independence. Brooklyn Interiors roams through twenty-four homes that embody this spirit--from brownstones and row houses to lofts and apartments. Each one exemplifies a knack for beautifully reconciling a respect for tradition, an embrace of modernism, and an appreciation for the handcrafted. In these spaces designed by the individuals who inhabit them, a rallying ideal comes into focus: to carve out one's own niche within the urban environment. This is what makes the Brooklyn lifestyle so compelling for people around the world.
"["Brooklyn Interiors"] focuses entirely on private homes, aiming to get to the heart of the Brooklyn lifestyle by profiling houses that display trendsetting design sensibilities."-"PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY""
