Tired of looking at things in black and white? Welcome to Park Slope, where New York’s urban veneer takes on a softer aspect. Roses are red and violets are blue in its corner flower shops, and the cafes are sweet and so is the brew. With playgrounds and Prospect Park nearby, this three bedroom home offers easy access to golden sunshine and green lawns. Put the kids in a stroller, pay a visit to the farmer’s market, and you’ll pass as a local with flying colours.
Your hosts are design entrepreneurs with a fondness for colouring outside the lines. They are innovators in the field of user experience, and integrating into their home is as easy as ABC.
Take a spin on the colour wheel. The kitchen channels orange, with a bright wall that’s the perfect accompaniment to your morning intake of Vitamin C. Perch on a blonde wood chair at the counter, or take your orange juice into the dining room. Here, an exposed brick fireplace provides a neutral transition into the cool colours of the living room, with its throw rug the blue of a clear sky in summer. Take a nap on the capacious couch, and then pass into the autumnal warmth of the family room, with its umber throw pillows and a ruby red embroidered tapestry on the wall.
Descend the stairway to the first floor, via a colour-blocked throw rug that might inspire you to a game of makeshift hopscotch. A boy’s bedroom is baby blanket blue, filled with beautiful wooden toy trains. A girl’s room is a delicate lilac, matched with a flowered throw rug of riotous blooms. Ready for a neutral escape? The master bedroom and its ensuite bathroom are a soothing white, with an adorable reading nook stocked with Russian classics.
A refined palette
When you’re ready to step out, rent bikes and enjoy the green escape of Prospect Park or the pastel petals of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Take inspiration from the artists with the paintings at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Want to paint the town red? Make your way to the bars and sidewalk cafes of Park Slope’s Fifth Avenue, or hop on a train to Manhattan.
Additional amenities include: concierge, concierge service, 24 hour on call maintenance, coffee grinder, hob (gas), entertainment, communications/internet, child's highchair.TripAdvisor property ID 2765493...Read more

This apartment is very well equiped and spacious. Lots of room and especially nice if you have children. Bedding is unique if all adults due to bunk beds. Master bedroom large and comfortable. Showers and heating worked great. Walking distance to many fine restaurants and bars and convenient to many groceries.
