Williamsburg Industrial Home
Young, soon-to-be married couple Hope Holland and Reed Fawley recently moved in the New York City neighborhood. Day one after this milestone in life, they called in Becky Shea from Homepolish and ventured together to work wonders on the 1-bedroom apartment.
Very few would say outright that they love their place of work, and Hope is one of the rare cases people truly do appreciate their job and work space. She’s one exception, partly credited to the fact that she actually works at ClassPass in a lovely office that resulted from a Homepolish makeover. She knew right then and there that they’d be perfect for her and fiance Reed’s new place.
Their Williamsburg apartment has been built with a typical Brooklyn foundation- weathered exposed brick walls, high ceilings, time-old wood beams, and black steel framed windows. Homepolish superstar of residential projects, Shea, worked with the couple to transform the space into a home sweet home that bridges each their own styles. She was geared to maximizing the entirety of the space by incorporating living, dining and entertainment spaces. The outcome? An industrial chic apartment with a flair for craft and a contemporary look, filled with an air of relaxation much like the couple’s youthful vibe.
A cozy and warm ambiance wraps around the person who enters the living room, with natural light from the huge windows and white walls brightening the area. Backed against the corner is a large West Elm sectional couch lined with a number of throws and blankets. At the other end is a TV mounted on the wall, placed above a reclaimed wood credenza. The unique storage matches the exposed beams high above, while its modern white frame fits the whole theme perfectly.
The dining space is comprised of mismatched chairs pulled together to blend quite well with everything else. Modern black and rustic wood furniture is complemented by similar-shade accents and tableware. The pieces are reminiscent of Eames style and Wagner classics in the wishbone chair. The stainless steel appliances backed with colorful patterned tiles spell elegance in every way, enhanced with the stylish open shelving’s impressive design.
Plains, prints and texture are present altogether, like what’s seen on the remarkable display ladder for a lively setting, with the added vibrance of potted plants and beautiful succulents. Mirrors in different sizes and shapes with the round ones hung by ropes on cast iron, adorable wall hangings, woven baskets, and intricate rugs grace sophistication throughout the apartment.
