These days, Brooklyn is more than a place-it's become a symbol for a whole style of living, one that is rooted in a broad-minded eclecticism and imbued with an aura of authenticity, originality, and independence. It has replaced Manhattan as home to indie fashion designers, filmmakers, artists, writers, actors, and entrepreneurs with trendsetting design sensibilities. Focusing entirely on private homes, this is the first book to get to the heart of the Brooklyn lifestyle. Profiling homes that exemplify a distinctive perspective, Brooklyn Interiors goes beyond the front doors of the new creative class-inside the borough's most compelling brownstones, row houses, lofts, condos, carriage houses, and even one houseboat. From Williamsburg and Greenpoint to Carroll Gardens and Park Slope and every neighborhood in between, the connecting thread is a brilliant resourcefulness. There is also an uncanny knack for beautifully reconciling a respect for tradition, an embrace of modernism, and a new love of the handcrafted (one that is broader and more syncretic than what's become typical of the borough). In the end, the Brooklyn ideal is to carve out one's own niche within a tightly developed urban environment-thus these examples provide aesthetic lessons for people all over the country.

Recensioner i media

"[Brooklyn Interiors] focuses entirely on private homes, aiming to get to the heart of the Brooklyn lifestyle by profiling houses that display trendsetting design sensibilities." -PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "I'm always on the lookout for the next source of interiors inspiration that gets me mentally tearing up the kitchen and rethinking all the tweaks and solutions I've been obsessing about. Brooklyn Interiors has done the job. The book is a broad sampling of the modern Brooklynite at home, in their brownstones, lofts, duplexes, railroad apartments, and more." -REMODELISTA.COM "Technically, yes, Brooklyn is a borough, but at this point it's also an idea--in the world of design, that means reclaimed wood, Edison bulbs, wrought iron fixtures. . . . [Brooklyn Interiors] proves that Brooklyn doesn't have to be defined by any one interior aesthetic. Featuring homes ranging in neighborhoods from Bed-Stuy to Clinton Hill to Ditmas Park, the tome underscores the borough's diversity--there's a white-walled bedroom accented with greys and blacks, and then another painted yellow and green with a fish sculpture hanging over the bed." -ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST "Brooklyn Interiors is a brilliant page turner that is a must for any interiors lover." -INTERIOR CANVAS HOME "Brooklyn may have overtaken Portland as the artisanal handmade punchline around the globe, but it's a fact that it boasts an authentic, renegade design spirit thanks to the plethora of creatives who call the brough home. . . . Featuring everything from condos and industrial lofts to cozy carriage houses and spacious brownstones, [Brooklyn Interiors] gives design enthusiasts a glimpse of the handcrafted style unique to the borough." -MANHATTAN MAGAZINE "From Rizzoli comes Brooklyn Interiors by Kathleen Hackett, a compendium of 24 vibrant homes . . . With photographer Matthew Williams, Hackett takes us on a tour that includes the homes of artists, designers, foodies, photographers, magazine editors, and multi-hyphenates of every variety, living in every type of abode, from loft spaces in DUMBO to Italianate brownstones in Fort Greene." -NEW YORK SPACES "Here are 240 pages of vividly decorated lofts, railroad flats, brownstones and industrial spaces across the borough, and even a century-old ferry boat docked in Red Hook. . . . Nothing is too precious, pricey or serious. Borrow as many ideas from the book as you wish. Each page of Brooklyn Interiors is packed full of visual information and ideas for the stealing. In fact, that is what Hackett hopes will happen." -BROWNSTONER
