Brooklyn Interiors: From Burnished to Polished, From Modern to Magpie
240 pages, $45
Author and Elle Decor contributing editor Kathleen Hackett focuses on the design and style of one of the hottest real estate markets in the country with her new book Brooklyn Interiors: From Burnished to Polished, From Modern to Magpie. Once known as the second fiddle to Manhattan, the borough has become a symbol of authenticity, originality, international style, and trendsetting.
Hackett concentrates on “the heart of the Brooklyn lifestyle,” focusing on the distinctive interiors of private homes in Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, and everywhere in between. From brownstones and row houses to condos and carriage houses (and even the occasional houseboat), the book details the traditions and style that is uniquely Brooklyn.
