Before 'n' After
We bought a new house last week, and are in the process of renovating it.
By way of a record, I took some before images of the rooms - the one on the top is the living room, and as they get close to finishing, I'm taking some after shots too.
The room was decorated in red and white, with a red carpet, but because the owners had seemingly smoked in the house for a long, long time, the white bits were a rich orange colour. If you look at the window coverings in the top picture, you can see what I mean.
The lower picture is how it is now, needs the floor painting (off-black) and the inside of the fireplace tiling. I added a picture rail because the ceilings are a good three metres high, and painting the whole wall the same colour looked odd.
We thought the light fittings were really old smoked glass, but when we cleaned them, it turned out they were quite new clear glass and we quite liked them.
Strobist (bottom shot): one 430EXII to camera left pointing towards fireplace, one 430EXII at the bottom, pointed towards the left. One 580EX on-camera, at 45 degrees to the ceiling. The 430EXII's as group 'B', the 580EX as group 'A', with the ratio at 1:1.5 A:B and flash exposure compensation at -1/3 stop.
Right, back to painting...
Pink bedroom in Park Slope: Marble fireplace + modern art
Another view of the pink Park Slope bedroom. I swear, I'm not usually into pink, but this, to me, is so well done. I love how the splashes of green, blue, black, and white cut the girlishness. The pseudo-sinister dolly on the chair is a nice touch, too.
Design by Brooklyn-based Coburn Architecture. They kept the original Carrara marble fireplace and accessorized it with traditional and modern objects, including a faux zebra woven rug, head of Buddha, and glass vases.

Architectural salvage is all about saving and reusing unique bits and pieces of the past--whether from old buildings, businesses, or homes--and preserving them as beautiful reminders of the talent and artistry of yesteryear. Extraordinary Interiors shows how architectural elements and antiques--such as a 200-year-old solid-oak door, an Arts & Crafts fireplace mantel, a Victorian stained-glass window, or an Art Deco lamp--can impart character and heritage to any home, even if you never got around to buying that perfectly restored historic home of your dreams. See how vintage sinks, hardware, and lighting are perfectly blended into new environments, giving the items a new lease on life, and in the process, preserving them for future generations to enjoy.
