This is a little of everything today. It’s a mixture of different things, kind of like my mister’s gumbo. Today we get to peek inside Brooklyn’s most expensive brownstone according to Architectural Digest.
The Low Mansion is one of the most iconic landmarked buildings in Brooklyn Heights. It was built in 1857 by architect Fred A. Petersen, who is one of the original 13 founders of the American Institute of Architects.
Originally constructed as a single-family dwelling, the mansion is currently configured as an eight-apartment building. The entrance hall features braided arches over the doors, decorative moldings, high ceilings, and a grand staircase.
The living room of the owner’s duplex.
A kitchen opens onto a glass-enclosed solarium, at the rear of the duplex. What do you think of this kitchen? I am in love! The black is gorgeous with that wood tone?! How about those cabinets?! Absolutely beautiful! I don’t think I have seen a more handsome kitchen. Notice the floor.
Rooms at the front of the building offer unobstructed views of New York Harbor.

Eric Ross – He is a designer based in Nashville Tennessee. I love the open friendly feel of this room. The green relates to the nature outside.
