Brooklyn Heights brownstone

This was love at first sight.  When Lauren McGrath graduated and started working as a fashion writer at Teen Vogue, she asked her mom, decorator and ex Martha Stewart collaborator to help her decorate her first apartment. The apartment in a Brooklyn Heights brownstone has an large deck, imagine sipping cocktails out there? I love the vintage desk used in the bedroom as a vanity table, the gorgeous mirror is from Anthropologie and the little lucite table/stool is also vintage, sometimes I wonder where people find all these little treasures. ???

  6. I love this apt as well. It's so funny I've never met Lauren and her Mom, but I tend to run into them at all sorts of NY events. Perhaps next time I'll actually speak up and say hello!
