Bespoke in Brooklyn
A family of five needed their Brooklyn apartment kitchen to accommodate their entertaining and dining needs. Designer Claudia Giselle of New York City-based Claudia Giselle Design worked to open up their space and bring in a style that better reflected the homeowners.
Before the redesign, this space was cramped and dark and did not have any views of the nearby botanical gardens.
To honor Brooklyn’s industrial charm and the wife’s preference for bright colors, the design team incorporated a bright red range into the design.
After demolishing walls between the kitchen, dining room and the living room, the space immediately opened up, revealing city views and bringing in natural light.
The light gray upper cabinets and dark gray base cabinets are offset with the more artistic and hand-painted custom backsplash, reclaimed antique wood countertop and red range.
One requirement for the space was incorporating this dining table, which is an heirloom piece that belonged to the husband’s mother.
