A Glamorously Edited Home

I often find it hard to edit and curate our home, I credit this to my inability to zero in on one type of style since I seem to sway back and forth between bright and colorful or vintage and rustic; however, one of my dear friends, Nuria has this skill mastered and then some.  She and her husband live in an ample-sized studio, on one of the prettiest streets in Brooklyn Heights, located just off the promenade.  She has a strong eye for beauty and knows how to create beautiful vignettes and I have been eager to photograph her space for some time.  The palette in her home is subdued, as she combines a lot of grays and whites in addition to antiqued mirrored surfaces which give her home character and like me she also has a weakness for gold, especially when it comes to mirrors - she found her gilded mirror hanging over the fireplace in a thrift shop in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn. I can always count on walking into her home and seeing bouquets of flowers,  a multitude of fragrant candles burning (she likes Nest, Voluspa and Diptique) and the latest must-have fashion coffee table book.  Here is a glimpse into her well-edited home.  Continue for more...
