Location: Brooklyn, NY, United States
This brand-new townhouse at Pierhouse, Brooklyn was a gorgeous space, but was crying out for some personalization to reflect our clients vivid, sophisticated and lively design aesthetic. Bold Patterns and Colors were our friends in this fun and eclectic project. Our amazing clients collaborated with us to select the fabrics for the den's custom Roche Bobois Mah Jong sofa and we also customized a vintage swedish rug from Doris Leslie Blau. for the Living Room Our biggest challenge was to capture the space under the Staircase so that it would become usable for this family. We created cubby storage, a desk area, coat closet and oversized storage. We even managed to fit in a 12' ladder - not an easy feat!

What Houzz contributors are saying:
More specifically, storage containers can distract some people from the decluttering process. Some of my clients are tempted to use the size of the container to determine what to keep, rather than actually focusing on the harder decision about whether an item itself should stay or go. Storage containers also can enable people to put off decision-making by hiding things. Out of sight leads to out of mind, and boxes can easily build up into overwhelming clutter. Even hidden clutter that doesn’t impose on your everyday life can rob you of peace because it stays on your subconscious to-do list. So if you are going to use storage containers – which, again, are wonderful tools when used appropriately – declutter your items first. After that, here’s what I recommend.
