Carroll Gardens is full of life – from its bountiful bistros full of lively patrons, to the curiosity boutiques dotting its blooming streets. And sharing its youthful exuberance is Huntington Place, where a range of curios for both young and old are displayed atop its lacquered white surfaces, while playful daubs of colour come from the living room’s cosy, tomato-red armchair and clashing geometric rug. Should you prefer to seek pleasure outdoors, Carroll Gardens’ sweet parks and gardens are close by. But we’d forgive you for staying home – each room is brimming with art, from cardboard sharks to sweet sketches.
Your hosts are a puckish pair who can mostly be found pursuing outdoor adventures with their two young sons. After trading in Manhattan’s thump and bustle for Brooklyn a number of years ago, they see Carroll Gardens as their long-term home, thanks in no small part to its ample playgrounds.
Adventures begin in the open-plan living area, where a soft linen sofa and dark-wood dining set give way to a work desk, should you need to turn it down a notch. And the children’s room is a shrine to imagination, its lofted wooden bed ensuring there’s plenty of space to make the acquaintance of the army of stuffed animals who also take up residence.
The red backsplash in the kitchen is particularly bold, and there’s even a chalkboard, should culinary creativity strike. But head to the master bedroom and you’ll find an altogether more calming affair, perfect after a day rubbing shoulders with the excitable residents of Carroll Gardens in its popular cafés and eateries.
