The Brooklyn Home Company

Lyndsay Caleo and Fitzhugh Karol flip properties, but only after they have made them more appealing. Three years back, Caleo, a jewelry designer, and Karol, who has a master’s in ceramics and designs furniture, partnered with Lyndsay’s brother Bill to form the Brooklyn Home Company, which renovates (or builds) properties for sale. They design the projects as if they were our own home, searching all over for salvaged architectural elements. The Park Slope brownstone here, however, they kept for themselves. It “just felt right” despite rotted floors and a fire-damaged ceiling. And their goal was to make it hark back to their past. They both grew up in the country, that's why they designed the house to be an escape from the city. If I had to choose an interior for my house it would definitely be one like this, cause it is in the middle of the city, but with a touch of wood and nature in it.
