A Place On Cobble Hill

With it’s low ceilings, exposed wood beams, and undeniable allure, you would think this cozy townhouse calls somewhere like England home. But no. This delightful, three-story home is situated on Warren Place in Cobble Hill in Brooklyn – a street lined with English style cottages intended as affordable housing for laborers in the late 1800s. Couple Elspeth Benoit and David Bevan bought the house and gave it a much needed facelift, ridding the house of walls and stripping plaster to open up the space and reveal its original charm. I love the grey color throughout, the mix of tile, the chevron dining room floors and Kelly Wearstler wallpaper!

    i love the accents of the dark paint…the kitchen at my old house was painted a similar dark color and i loved it. my house is a bit smaller now, so accenting something smaller would be ideal!

    Perfection! Reminds me of the Mews houses in London. Amazing what can be achieved with a small space.

    Hey, this website is just fantastic, you are so good at showcasing wonderful artists and designers and great ideas. In the spirit o everything that you represent, please pay a little more attention to not-so-innocent-typos such as “it’s” instead of “its” or the other way around. You might ask “but why, what’s the difference, as long as you get the message, why be a Nazi? ” But I may ask the same about an ugly kitchen for example, or a hideous dress : “What’s the difference, as long as it gets the job done? I can cook my meals just fine or cover myself up all the same with this piece of junk? Why be a snob about it?” But you know that it just isn’t the same aesthetically and it gives off the wrong message. It’s the same with writing, isn’t it? All the more if it’s your job. Thank you and sorry for the rant, I wouldn’t be commenting if I didn’t care :))

    Hey Maria,
    The Nazis didn’t care about punctuation, they were more into taking over the world and murdering everyone they deemed subhuman. Using “it’s” instead of “its” isn’t nearly as bad as lazily using the word “Nazi” when you only mean “pedant.”
