Cool Brooklyn loft turned fun family home

Paul & Paula: Brooklyn family loft

We are back with Interior Tuesday and I have this super awesome family loft situated in Brooklyn to share with you.

Owners Dylan Dodd and Elisa Restrepo’s and their two children are living here. And the apartment really grew with the family. What started with a kitchen renovation was turned into fitting in space for their first child. A couple of years later, another space had to be found for arrival number two.

The apartment is an airy 2,000 square feet and occupies the second floor of a converted 1800s schoolhouse in South Williamsburg. And you can find the ‘traditional’ whitewashed brick and some very cool statement lighting. Adding an eclectic blend of textures, materials, and artwork, voila, the perfect family loft that combines modern design and parenthood.

The beautiful high ceilings give the home a very sophisticated look. And , to get the children’s rooms a cosy and charming feel, the couple added some soft textiles, low furnishings, and cheerful wallpapers.

Personally I love the little buntings (of course!) and kids drawings to decorate the walls.

I love the whole house but my favourite room is the kitchen. I love kitchens and I love them cosy and inviting with space for the whole family to hang out. The island in this loft is really cool and one can literally picture the family gathering around it…
