AD PRO | Step Inside This Year’s Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse

The newly renovated town house features creative talents from the borough and beyond

“Steps away from Brooklyn Bridge Park, in a classic Greek Revival town house, the Brooklyn Heights Association welcomed guests to the grand opening of the third biennial Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse last week. The newly renovated and six-floor residence’s style is decidedly Brooklyn, with many of the participating interior designers choosing to showcase the artistry of borough-based talents and honor the historical neighborhood’s architectural nuances.

The property—which is open for tours through October 30—was built in 1839 by George S. Howland, founder of paint pigment makers Brooklyn White Lead Company (and an early developer of the Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo neighborhoods). Nearly two centuries later, regional design and landscape pros present a more contemporary picture of Brooklyn living within the home with help from sponsors such as Sherwin-Williams, Forbes & Lomax, Walker Zanger, Wovn Home, and Ferguson…

An homage to local talents, Laurie Blumenfeld Design’s vestibule and powder bath share a glimpse at the creativity materializing in the showhouse’s borough. Blush tones permeate the hallway walls on a mural by Wall Paper Projects, and a gradient light fixture by Avram Rusu Studio unfolds across the narrow space.
