Two architects, Andrea Fisk and James Klauder, decided to renovate their own property, which happened to be a Brooklyn townhouse that was largely unmodified from its original design. However, there were two main considerations: the financial cost and the necessary renovations for the old structure. The couple decided to rent the apartment after they made the necessary repairs and cosmetic modifications. The townhouse takes on a simple but elegant design scheme involving elements of minimalism along with pale pink, gray, and green tones.
- Brooklyn-based architect Andrea Fisk got first-hand design experience by overhauling her 19th century townhouse with her partner .
- Fisk chose to paint the livingroom with Benjamin Moore’s Lost Locket, including the crown moldings and ceiling.
- For the kitchen, they uncovered and refinished the original pine subflooring, giving it a rustic finish.
