This Brooklyn renovation is proof that Minimalism is a powerful design theme. The project was brought to life by B Interior, a sophisticated residential design firm based in New York. Their design vision is simple, uncluttered spaces where the architectural features and materials are the focal point of the space.  

Blanco, from the Venture Plank collection, was selected for its light tone as the team wanted a clean feel and to create a contrast between the dark millwork and the kitchen. The abundant natural light from the floor to ceiling windows is the focal point of the apartment, and light floors created the perfect canvas for the stunning view.   

The location is a vital influence on every space designed by B Interior. As explained by Principal, Sharon Blaustein, “When designing a summer home, the design theme is beachy, lots of natural materials and light colors. For the city apartment, the design can be more edgy, sophisticated and urban.” 

A few important elements in the design process for the B Interior team are clean lines and functionality. This apartment balances minimalism and a bit of personality within the residence. In this project, the clients are well-travelled and lived all over the world, including Australia and Singapore. They collected beautiful artifacts, so the clean aesthetic was a great backdrop to feature these keepsakes, without overwhelming the space.

The B Interior team chooses to work with Havwoods on a number of their projects because “Havwoods have amazing variety, high quality products in the right price point. The customer service is great.”
