Warehouse Turned Shabby Chic Home

Warehouse Turned Shabby Chic Home

30 October, 2013  |  House Interior

After the closing of the Brooklyn Naval yard, thousands of native New Yorkers and ambitious transients flocked to the lofts and warehouses that were left vacant. As a result, old mechanics shops and rustic workbenches were turned into art, and ultimately, a new trend in interior design. This apartment, which is snugly nestled in the quiet Brooklyn neighborhood of Clinton Hill, was overhauled and given a new look by design firm David Berridge Architect. Aged brick walls, metal beams firmly bolted into antique wood plants, and post modern bathroom tiling are some of the most noteworthy elements. A stainless steel sink outfitted with retro styled hardware and a built in soap holder appears on the tiled bathroom wall. The internal structure of this renovated warehouse has been heavily updated, but the eclectic blend of old and new remains.
