A kitchen that was once lacking in lighting is now overflowing with sunshine. A beautiful country table pairs perfectly with the natural wood featured on the kitchen island.
Bright and Luxurious

A Well-Lit Room
Antique white crackle (Ann Sacks) subway tile and classic bright white cabinetry allow the light from outside to reflect throughout the entire kitchen, making the room a bright and cheery space.Photography by Marco Valencia
An office niche fills the gap between the classic kitchen and the more transitional living space. A custom bulletin board takes up the back wall for a functional and decorative touch.

Warm Wood Paneling
The ceiling and wall above and behind the desk is paneled with 10-inch-wide rift cut oak, which is stained in a blue/gray. The oak warms up the area and gives it a more distinct look from the rest of the home.Photography by Marco Valencia
Materials That Make a Difference
Like the ceiling in the kitchen, the living room ceiling shows off the same beautiful tin, a look that adds a unique and delicate detail to this classic Brooklyn home. The simple fireplace is made of slate and marble, while the wood floors are made up of hand-planed 8-inch-wide antique wood.Photography by Marco Valencia
Newel Vs. New
\"We rebuilt the main stairway but reused the original intricately-carved newel post,\" says designer Ben Herzog. By keeping small details like the newel posts, the home was able to be updated without losing all the character of the original building.Photography by Marco Valencia
Working With Walnut

Casual Guest Bathroom
The main floor bathroom is similar to the master, though its light colors give it a more casual feel and reflect the oak paneling in the office niche.Photography by Marco Valencia
The blue Atlantic Glossy penny tile mosaic floors are what set this bathroom apart, making it a bit more fun than the other bathrooms and adding a colorful detail the kids will love.Photography by Marco Valencia
An escape from busy city life, this Brooklyn brownstone boasts a lovely patio with Ipe wood, plenty of seating and a perfect view of the night sky.
