Jason's Brownstone Studio
Location:Brooklyn, New York
What I Love About My Home
While searching for an apartment in New York City, I came across a small, garden-level studio in Park Slope, Brooklyn. After viewing numerous places significantly larger in size, it was the structural & built-in details of this historic brownstone that captured my eye: from the tin ceiling to the wood floors and moldings, I was immediately able to picture myself living in such a charming, well-laid out space. For such a small interior, it has a distinct living, sleeping and kitchen area, each of which are functional, comfortable and efficient. Everything I have introduced to this space has created, for me, a vibrant and restorative home.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Finding the perfect sofa - after two flee market finds it became obvious over time that these seating options were merely glorified chairs. I finally found a sofa that complemented the space and was actually comfortable to sit on! Although I had every intention of purchasing a vintage piece, after exhausting all options, I found a couch online that was unique enough to fit in with the rest of the design elements in my apartment.
