Color in the City Brooklyn Palette

If you'd asked me before my trip to Brooklyn about my impressions, I'd say that it's a quiet suburban place with brown and gray dominating the landscape.

Turns out, the people and places in Brooklyn are anything but. This vibrant locale is a pulsing thriving community where ambition meets art meets expression meets roots.

Barbara Streisand, Michael Jordan, Rudy Guiliani, and Marisa Tomei are just a tiny cross-section of the talent that Brooklyn has produced. And this color palette is just a sampling of the richness and diversity you'll find here.

To create the Brooklyn look in your home, keep the walls and furnishings simple and comfortable with unique meaningful pieces to fill in the gaps such a bench from an old church or  heirloom trunk for the coffee table.

Picture a mid-century danish dresser with a collection of 70's vases and graffitti inspired art for the wall.

Keep the color palette simple- white, gray and black with punches of bright modern color for the accents such as pillows, curtains, rugs, art... have fun, be aggressive with your style, and express your most vibrant self- that's doing like Brooklyn, Baby!
