Count the Florals in This Dizzying Brooklyn Townhouse

New, 5 comments

Curbed NY writes that this townhouse, on the market in Brooklyn, "looks like it was decorated by [Harry Potter's] Dolores Umbridge at various stages of dementia," and, yes, the decor is a far cry from the universally enjoyed fare typical of staged homes, but, in all fairness, the mix of florals seems to be expensively done and beautifully photographed—perhaps a gold mine for fans of interiors by Mario Buatta or Diamond Baratta. Heck, that's the Martinique Banana Leaf wallpaper in the bathroom, an iconic pattern made renowned (and expensive) by its most famous application in the Beverly Hills Hotel. And at a relatively reasonable pricetag—$1.395M for three floors, three outdoor spaces, and four bedrooms—it wouldn't be a huge surprise if the property was whisked away rather quickly. Of course, it also wouldn't be a huge surprise if it lingered for a while only to sell to a deep-pocketed modernist determined to paint over every square inch of flora. The real estate world is a fickle one, indeed. · This Townhouse in Prospect-Lefferts is a Floral Explosion [Curbed NY]
