Step Inside This Homepolish Designer’s Williamsburg, Brooklyn Pad
When Homepolish interior designer, Justin DiPiero, moved from South Carolina and into his first New York apartment, he wanted to make sure his space was serene. Using space-saving ideas, neutral hues while focusing on texture, DiPiero created a calming cocoon away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
"I love this apartment because of all of the exposed brick and I launched the decor from there. Most of the pieces I chose were soft neutrals to compliment the red brick and architectural detailing of the space. I didn't want anything that would compete too much, but I added interest with really textural pieces to add depth to the room," says DiPiero of the Looli pillows sourced from Main and Gray Home and throw via Barn & Willow.
See the geometric addition to the space? We love the subtle addition of metallic to the wall, which was hand drawn by DiPiero and his friend. How? A level, a ruler and sharpie paint pens!
A petit-in-size modern chair is warmed up with a sheepskin throw while a potted plant is housed in a woven basket for added texture. Want to know a little secret? The Homepolish designer, who's home is short on storage, keeps his vacuum hidden behind the draperies.
An easy trick to transforming a space into a serene environment is by adding plants. Mix in with vases and glassware for an eclectic laissez-fiare vibe.
"In the bedroom, I wanted to keep everything really soft and calming. I had the bed's accent pillow custom made to contrast with the Barbara Barry euro shams I found at a local Tuesday Morning in South Carolina before I moved here. I'm a huge fan of neutrals as long as there are plenty of textures to differentiate," says DiPiero of his Williamsburg sleeping quarters.

Chez DiPiero, texture doesn't stop and textiles--an eel skin side table (with matte gold trimmings!) adds a sophisticated masculine touch.
Keep your place tidy by utilizing small dishes and bowls for miscellaneous accessories.
