At the celebrated Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse, Laurie Blumenfeld Design conjures outsized statements in small spaces.

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 Brooklyn-based Wallpaper Projects paired with an expansive, sculptural light fixture with an unexpected design element draping down the wall. Designed by Brooklyn-based lighting designer, Avram Rusu Studio, 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 by Innovations to set the mood in the powder room. The custom sconce by Avram Rusu Studio was created to branch out unexpectedly over the mirror. A bespoke 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.
