This Brooklyn brownstone is beautiful with its 13-foot ceilings and original mahogany woodwork but the furnishings in the living and dining rooms are in need of an interior redesign.
Mindy Greenberg and Lisa Skelley discuss the design dilemmas:
- Immediately upon entering the room, the white sofa blocks the traffic pattern into the living area and the dining table to the right doesn't help direct guests through the space.
- The armoire, picture frames, fireplace mantel and swords create too many hard edges on the wall opposite the sofas.
Host Joan Steffend and redesigner Leslie Teddy give a long living room a little punch without painting or spending any money.
