For this weeks PENSON’s Pick we took inspiration from pared-back lofts from across the pond, where uber cool and thrifty Brooklynites yet again prove why they’re at the forefront of contemporary interior design scene. Brooklyn modern in a nutshell is an interesting mash up of Scandinavian minimalism, the 1970’s houseplant-haven look and vintage charm. The...
