Mike D in Brooklyn – New York Times

The New York Times did a piece in their Style section on Mike D’s townhouse in Brooklyn, NY. And, all of us who screamed “No Sleep til Brooklyn” in the middle of the night at some point in our lives (regardless of how close or far we were from Brooklyn), feel totally authenticated in his sweet BK style! Here are my favorite snapshots from the Times article!

Bathroom Vanity – probably from a vintage piece. You can do anything with a sweet find – even put a sink in it!

Living room. I love this shot. I recognized the Missoni pouf (from their collection with Target) right away. I saw it in my old Boss’s house and was blown away when she told me Target! On the high-low, the chair across the way is a work by Patricia Urquiola.

TV room. A little heavy on the color palette, but super fun idea – I love a good projector show!

Reclaimed wood cladding in the kitchen – a Brooklyn Best Practice for commercial and residential!

Art, art, and more art. Want your friends to believe you when you claim you’re authentically anything? Buy the art to back yourself up. Whether it’s ebay, etsy, or a gallery, you’ll find something that reflects how you identify yourself and the world around you. Showcase it – once you have a collection together, it will speak to you like no other collection can!

Master bath. I recently read an article on Collin Burry in California Home Design– he said “A good bathroom is like good shoes. You need them to complete an outfit.”

Bedroom. It’s always nice to know… Who would have guessed Mike D would sleep in a traditional design 4 poster bed?? Go figure – we all need a little history in our lives!

    I love the reclaimed wood kitchen! It was also featured in the “Design Brooklyn” publication and it mentioned that Nathan Shellkopf of Southslope Woodworks fabricated the kitchen cabinet doors.
