Aspire Design and Home | Laurie Blumenfeld Design’s Vestibule & Powder Room At The 2022 Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse

“Global influences lay the groundwork for Laurie’s interior design process and evolve into modern details and décor. The architectural beauty of the riads in Morocco later translates into a kitchen backsplash. Galleries in Southeast Asia inspire the magic and craftsmanship in a home. Furniture boutiques in Copenhagen shape contemporary living spaces. For her Brooklyn Heights Showhouse spaces, local influences and borough-based artistry abounds.

We believe small spaces should be embraced and celebrated as much, if not more so than larger spaces. So, the opportunity to take what is typically a pass-through and overlooked area and transform it into a colorful, moody and expressive space was irresistible. Design details in the vestibule showcase an ethereal wall mural by a Brooklyn-based studio paired with an expansive, sculptural light fixture with an unexpected design element draping down the wall. Designed by a Brooklyn-based lighting designer, the statement fixture was inspired by the dynamic street art of the borough.

With the vestibule holding center stage with its warm saturated hues; we chose neutral, cool-toned, textural wall covering to set the mood in the powder room. A custom walnut vanity designed by Laurie Blumenfeld Design and fabricated by a local artisan adds refined form and function. Eclectic artwork, ceramics and photography set an artful tone.” – Aspire Design and Home
