A few interior design projects are just a delight to look at, sometimes just because of a simple lighting design they decide to showcase. And this is one of these cases!
A minimalist Brooklyn townhouse was designed to meet the best of both worlds but ended up being a perfect example of Scandinavian design done right. However, it was not only the floor lamps that caught our attention but truly all the lighting designs that are featured in this project. They all make the home design more fluid in between the different rooms.
This modern residence in Brooklyn was bought a few years ago by the couple Rimjhim Dey and Jesper Meyer and their children. Except, it didn’t exactly look like this… It was a beaten up old house, with a not very promising future. However, the couple decided to give it a chance and transform it into a passive house that could lead them up to their retirement years.
Jesper, being Danish, was all for choosing a very minimalist Scandinavian design. And although Rimjhim comes from colorful and lively India, she is also “a minimalist who wanted clean lines”. And so, “working with Sarah Jefferys, an architectural designer they gutted the 3,000-square-foot brick building in Park Slope and rebuilt it into a tranquil setting for themselves and their two children”.
The white-oak simple palette continues into the kitchen, “where full-height cabinets are made with handcrafted, slatted detailing that wraps up the ceiling”. The island countertop is made of Glassos, a durable crystal-glass material. We can also see how the mustard suspension lamps play a key role in this kitchen design, making it less pale and giving it a happy twist.
The neutral tones are a solid reality that accompanies the whole home design, including the bathrooms and the master bedroom. Nonetheless, another great thing is the continuous use of minimalist lighting solutions, like the ones we can see above.
This small and cozy living area is highlighted by the royal blue modern sofa, which pairs up extremely well with the wooden chairs. Another amazing touch was the use of such a clean-lined floor lamp, that maintains the fluidity of the Scandinavian design throughout the house.
