Floral wallpapers juxtaposed with Victorian taxidermy create a moody look in this 19th century Brooklyn brownstone. The seven bedroom, 4,400-square-foot brownstone built in the 1880s is located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope. At first glance it seems traditional and relaxed, with dark antique tables and masculine chairs. Yet a closer look reveals a slight macabre touch.
Owners Tracy Martin and Vince Clark removed contemporary finishes from the previous owner, J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons. With the help of Design firm Roman and Williams, they played up the historic home’s beautiful bone structure with a moody color palette and edgy décor like skeleton prints and a framed “Mourning Hair” wreath. The result is chic, comfortable, yet incredibly unique.
