12-Foot-Wide Brooklyn Brownstone

BrownstoneBackyardView 359x540 12 Foot Wide Brooklyn Brownstone

When I first moved to NYC and was squished in with multiple roommates, I actually had repeated dreams about finding hidden doors leading to big empty rooms. Something tells me this is not a unique city dream theme. And since we showed the very posh Brooklyn homes being sold by Jenna Lyons and Agyness Deyn, it stands to reason some of our readers might have fun checking out this more size-challenged 12-foot wide Brooklyn brownstone. More in keeping with the average person’s reality but still manages to be just as dreamy as the celebs’ spots.

According to architect Tim Rasic who purchased it in 2005

“It was a full-on interior and exterior renovation. “There had been only two owners before us, each of whom had the house for about fifty years. And they hadn’t done any work in the last fifty.”

Brownstoner has more details on design choices, like choosing not to put cabinets on the walls in the kitchen to make the room seem wider. Interesting how seemingly every choice made is so influenced by the desire to make the space seem larger. Wonder if sometimes they didn’t want to rebel and do something big.

ButtonDown1 low 359x540 Evisu x Insa  Denim Playsuit

To celebrate EVISU turning 20, they are celebrating with their “Make the Rules” art project. One of the artists invited to creatively interpret the theme of “Make the Rules” is world-renowned graffiti and contemporary artist INSA.

This custom made denim playsuit is crafted from authentic Evisu selvedge Japanese denim, hand bleach printed with INSA’s signature ‘Graffiti Fetish’ pattern. Double stitching, double layer denim construction, steel buttons and whale boning give this delicate feminine form the strength, toughness and durability of any serious piece of workwear.

The custom made mannequin for this piece although unseen is still a beautifully designed hand forged and welded rigid steel framework that is mounted on steel rods sunk deep into a thick oak heart base. All this built to the rather unbelievable measurements 36 – 24 – 45, those of rap star Nicki Minaj
