The Brooklyn Home Company


Chances are, you may have seen the amazing Brooklyn home of Fitzhugh Carol and Lyndsay Caleo, founders of The Brooklyn Home Company on design*sponge or Elements of Style. I first learned of this incredibly talented company through Erin’s post earlier this month and was instantly enamored with the amazing space this duo had created for themselves. Wanting to learn more, I sought out their website and became smitten with a few of their other spectacular projects. Their homes make me want to move to Brooklyn! I wish they made homes like this in Houston. Seriously, if there were a Houston builder who wanted to create spaces like these, I would be so on board!

{I love the floor to ceiling built-ins and the white-washed look of the space.}


{Do you think you would ever try white floors? They look amazing in this home! The beams in the ceiling are pretty fabulous, too.}


{I would love to have this type of continuity in a future home. Most new construction homes are designed with open floor plans, but with this being a townhouse, I love that everything fits into a large, rectangular space. Notice the artwork above the mantle.}


{Isn’t the kitchen fantastic? I love that this large table can be used for dining or as a work space. The open shelving is functional and plays upon the airy feeling of the home. The cute pup on the counter is the icing on the cake. Tate would love him!}

{The reclaimed door is bananas.}

{I love the organic quality of the master bedroom. While I love color, this home seriously makes me want to take a trip to the light side! Between the white walls, white floors, and white linens, this place feels like such a breathe of fresh air. The original fireplace is gorgeous. Fireplaces are one of my favorite features in New York townhouses. I also love that they created what appears to be a wardrobe next to it and used mirrored paneling and glass knobs to keep it from looking cumbersome. Gorgeous and functional, what could be better than that?}

{Check out the gorgeous built-in mirrors in this Brooklyn home.}

While the home of Fitzhugh and Caleo has been enjoying the spotlight recently (Rightfully so, the place is INSANE!), I also wanted to share a couple of their other projects which are just as beautiful.

{A Lovely Dining Room}

{Gorgeous Sitting Area with a Fabulous Built-in Bar}

{A sleek, modern kitchen juxtaposes well with the grandeur throughout the rest of the home.}

{I love the rich color of the walls and the gold-leaf accents.}

{This gilded wallpaper adds a touch of glamour to the bathroom.}

{There is so much to love in this image! My personal favorite? The Greek Key wallpaper, of course!}

{The Greek Key wallpaper continues into the dining room. I love that they wallpapered inside of the mouldings. It looks like art!}

{Sleek storage abounds in the kitchen. Take a look at the beautiful fireplace and plaster work above the cabinets!}

{This sitting room is swathed in ethnic fabrics and bright colors.}

{Anyone who has been in my home knows that I have an affinity for maps. I love this little nursery vignette!}

{Ahhh! Citrine Imperial Trellis. Need I say more?}

The Brooklyn Home Company is set to have 15 new homes available this fall. I wish I could make one mine!

Oh wow! I had seen Lyndsay and Fitzhugh's home before, but Lincoln Place is amazing! I love the bright punches of colour and the graphic wallpaper. I'm with you with the map. I wonder where they got one so big!

These homes are all breath-taking. I live in Brooklyn and can't imagine living anywhere else. I am always taken back by the gorgeous architecture which not everyone expects to find here. Thanks for sharing!

Kathleen said...

Their house is amazing...I keep trying to talk my husband into painting our whole place shades of white, but he's having none of it. Alas.

Francine Gardner said...

Really well done spaces...the dining room table in Fort Greene Place looks as it just came out of our Interieur Showroom..

It's a beautiful home to be sure, love the beams and barn door in particular -- they really bring some warmth to that loft-like/very white interior. As for white floors, I think they'd be no harder to keep up than very dark floors...and maybe even easier since it's a lot easier to touch white floors up!

Sweet trio of kitchen stools in Fort Green Place. I like 'em.

Thank you SO much for sharing -- I'm in love! Lincoln Place, on the whole, though, is my favorite ... Comfortable, livable, AND chic.

Deb said...

For the love of all things holy, WHERE is that greek key wallpaper from? LOVE LOVE LOVE! Never seen it before. Any ideas where that comes from?

I think the colorway for the imperial trellis is actually called treillage as opposed to citrine. I only know b/c I have it in my kitchen/mudroom/bathroom

(see related post here http://livinglivelier.blogspot.com/2010/05/imperial-trellis-for-softcore-diy.html)

Great post Paloma!

Lovely rooms, but...I want the bar stools!

Michelle said...

Wow, not only is that my dream job! Why oh why didn't I figure that out earlier? But this post was like having a great steak dinner, and the best dessert around (hello dark chocolate mouse!)...yum....burp.

Crystal @ Plush Palate said...

Wow Paloma! I seriously don't think I've ever seen a post with so much eye candy all at once! I love every single space!

All of that natural wood in the first home is gorgeous! I love the shelves and the dining room table, oh and the sliding door -- so fabulous!
