Step Inside Brooklyn Blonde Blogger Helena Glazer's N.Y.C Townhouse
If you've ever heard of the blog Brooklyn Blonde, then you know its creator is a super chic mom-to-be with a killer sense of style. Well, Helena Glazer's Bay Ridge home is no different. The stunning Brooklyn townhouse has recently undergone a redesign, and we got to take a look inside. To help her with the project, Glazer teamed up with HomeGoods and expert interior designer Matthew Cane of Homepolish. The result? A light and airy space that is cozy, colorful, and contemporary.
To add definition to the living room, Glazer and Cane moved the couch closer to the entryway. To increase vibrancy in the otherwise neutral space, various pillows and throws were added for comfort and decoration. Cane hung Glazer's antique mirror and eclectic art collection around the room to create numerous eye-catching pieces. The tribal rug from HomeGoods works to liven up the area, while the stylish gold and marble side tables give an expensive feel to the room. "Don't be fooled," Glazer noted, "while looking luxe, these side tables are super affordable."
For a dining room that is constantly filled with family and friends, Glazer wanted the space to be comfortable yet cool. The farm table is the true attention-grabber, a custom-made piece created from scaffolding from a New York City building. "We are born and bred New Yorkers so we love adding these ties to our roots in. This was definitely somewhere where we 'splurged' in our home, so it's great to find such quality, yet affordable dishware from HomeGoods to even it out," Glazer said.
With the calming, neutral tone of the walls and bedding, Glazer was able to play it up with an assortment of prints. Two geometric marble lamps from HomeGoods sit on each bedside table, adding symmetry and structure to the room. Placed throughout is fresh flora, doubling as pops of color and fun accessories. In fact, the cactus placed next to the window is actually a family heirloom once owned by Glazer's husband's grandfather. To give the bedroom a larger feel, Cane purchased two oversized standing mirrors to add dimension and create the illusion of extra space.
To keep the room gender-neutral Glazer and Cane opted for a grey color scheme accented with pops of navy. For maximum storage, Cane included closed and open furniture to hide the mess that will inevitably come with a new baby. For a fun addition, Glazer and her husband utilized his extensive art collection curated over years to start an animal-inspired gallery wall.
