At Home

A family-friendly Brooklyn townhouse

An 1899 Brooklyn townhouse blends historic style with modern design. Committed to maintaining the pre-war details of their South Slope home, Ben and Lauren Lindsey of LocalHaus remodeled key elements of their space to make way for their growing family - and plenty of art. The natural wood elements in a painting by Dan Covert and a unique ceramic work by Matthew Ward adds contrast to the kitchen countertop, while Inka Bell’s large-scale silkscreen print in the dining room reflects on the controlled chaos of family meals. High ceilings, natural light, and abundance of curated pieces, this family home epitomizes new-world charm.

“We've made a pact to only acquire pieces that both of us feel strongly about. As a result, our designs tend to straddle the line between masculine and feminine.”

“We worked with the team at Uprise Art to have this oversize work by artist Inka Bell brought over from Finland to tie the room together.”
