Nate Berkus and House Beautiful One Day Makeover in a Brooklyn Brownstone

I guess it's natural to always wonder what it would be like to live in a different type of environment.  I've been lucky enough to have lived in many places.  I grew up living in a small area surrounded by gorgeous lakes, then lived in a mid sized city surrounded by gorgeous mountains, then in a beach town on the ocean, then in a small community again by the ocean.  The other day Brooklyn, NY was on TV and my daughter said, 'I want to live there Mommy.'  I was thinking a girl after my own heart, I always wondered what that would be like...

So I always love seeing the interiors of big city dwellings, and was excited to see the outcome of the one day make over with Nate Berkus and House Beautiful

This is what it looked like before, not bad but missing that coziness and wow factor (I totally know the feeling, Nate please rescue me!!! :-))

And here it is now, it's crazy what a few accent pieces and an amazing couch can do.  I think a lot or all of the pillows are from West Elm and the couch is by Milo Baughman, a brilliant designer from the '70s. The amazing vintage gold mirror above the fireplace is from ABC Carpet and Home in NYC.  Oh how I'd love to spend at least a month here.....
