New York based interior company Home Studios usually designs spaces in the hospitality sector. But their latest project is an early 20th century Fort Greene townhouse.
The owners – a chef and their family – asked Home Studios to design a family home full of character. And a home that is ready for entertaining.
The Brooklyn townhouse was previously renovated, but the character of the historic home was completely lost. Home Studios have brought that character back. While at the same time updating the floor plan into well connected open-plan spaces.
The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen and dining room. It’s such a wonderful space where you can entertain guests but which also works perfectly for a young family.
This room might be open-plan but the material choice makes it an extremely warm room. On the floor lies a reclaimed oak flooring, which you’ll see throughout the home.
Home Studios used Paonazzo marble for the backsplash and top on the kitchen island. Around the island are handmade ceramic tiles for a graphic effect.
The cabinets are made of custom oak with brass hardware.

Farrow & Ball have released their trending colors for 2022. Take a look here for the new year’s color trends.
A fun touch in te powder room under the stairs. The Picasso-inspired murals are made by Kimmy Quillin.
There is lots of oak in this home, because the bedframe and nightstands are also made of oak.
Take a look at these Brooklyn townhouses:
- A warm Brooklyn townhouse filled with interesting decor ideas
- The Brooklyn townhouse of EyeSwoon founder Athena Calderone
- Soft colors in a Brooklyn townhouse designed by Shapeless Studio
- Colorful wallpaper in a vibrant Brooklyn family home
The bathroom might be my favourite room of the house. This room still has its origina fireplace and a freestanding tub is always a winning design feature.
Even in the bathroom you’ll find the reclaimed oak floor. The plants turn this into a lively room.
In the upstairs powder room you’ll find another mural by Kimmy Quillon.
Isn’t this Fort Green townhouse amazing? Home Studios have created a wonderful warm family home, filled with historic touches and ready for entertaining.
