Small and Stylish Apartment in Brooklyn
Small yet very stylish, cozy and inviting, Sarah’s place is an epitome of sophistication in what you’d call a perfect home. Her Brooklyn apartment comprises a multi-functional optimized space wherein she comfortably lives, works and entertains guests. Chef and founder of lifestyle and events studio Salt House gained inspiration from her passion for hosting gatherings and bringing people together to share good food.
Brilliance is noteworthy in the kitchen not only in its appearance, but in the way everything has its own place while saving on major storage space. The elegance of black meets the pristine beauty of white. Copper pots and pans, glossy countertops, the seemingly huge wine bar and full-length customized shelves altogether make a striking statement.
Dining is right alongside the preparation area, featuring a 6-seater dining set with white chairs tucked gracefully into a long table. Key pieces and objects serve as sources of inspiration, such as the rug in the living room which produced more prints and plates on the wall gallery. Glass doors and windows make up an entire wall which creates a bright ambiance and elicits a spacious appeal. Rattan baskets, potted and hanging plants, and neutral long-lasting accents are sprinkled throughout her lovely home.
A nice and neat, lustrous white office desk rests against the bluish curtains and conveniently beside a towering shelf storage. When working, Sarah would sit on the wishbone style chair that fascinatingly transforms traditional into modern classic while delivering exceptional comfort. The white-walled bedroom features a massive artwork as the focal point right above where the bed is centered. Smart space-saving is exhibited once more with a bedside furniture containing lots of drawers. Patterns and fur break the plain white sheets while the golden wall decor and vintage lamp adds a distinctive charm.
Wood and marble complements each other in the bathroom that flashes a modernized theme. Storage baskets and shelves come in slatted wooden design which keeps the place clutter-free while maintaining a sophisticated look. The shower curtain by Amazon steal the show.
Sarah carefully designed the whole apartment area itself and does not feel limited with her movements nor in terms of doing business in any way. In fact, she opens her home for Salt House events, workshops, cooking classes, which only proves that we need not a big space to dream big and do big things. There’s enough space for up to 20 people to keep them cozily inside a pleasing environment of classy black and white hues, soothing blues, hints of gold and nature’s greens.
