Today CoContesters we head to one of the coolest spots in NYC to check out Stefanie and her seriously chic blog: Brooklyn Limestone.
Last week we spent some time on the west coast checking out sfgirlbybay, while today we’re heading to the opposite side of the United States to New York City for a peek at Brooklyn Limestone. If you’re renovating your own abode, or would simply like a little inspiration to update your decor, then you’ve come to the right place!
Read on below to learn more about Stefanie, in addition to taking a tour of her Brooklyn Limestone and its beautifully designed and decorated interior spaces…
Stefanie and her Brooklyn Limestone…
So who is the face behind Brooklyn Limestone? Stefanie started her engaging and exciting blog as a way to chronicle the renovation of a large and luxurious Brooklyn Limestone. At over 100 years old, this refurbishment is certainly no easy feat! A wife and mother of two, Stefanie juggles home life with her creative career. Beginning as a simple way to document the family’s renovation journey, the blog now contains a beautiful array of entertaining, design, travel and decor advice.
Plenty of DIY projects to keep you busy over the holidays
Here at CoContest we love a good DIY project to keep us busy! The blog is replete with a seemingly endless selection of stylish and engaging projects that are sure to impress.
As the holiday season has well and truly begun, it’s often a good idea to select a few projects to stay busy over Christmas. We took a particular liking to this outdoor magnetic chalkboard that has been made for the couple’s daughter Aggie. As well as this offering the perfect child’s entertainment, we can also see this as a great way to display a menu when entertaining guests or friends!

The house tour…
If there is one thing we love to do, it’s check out our blogger’s own home. Stefanie offers a real insight into her Brooklyn Limestone, which boasts an impressive arrangement of rooms and completely renovated spaces.
This room above is her delightful daughter’s space. Decorated in a range of black and white hues, the sleeping space is definitely a chic and sophisticated yet playful room for a little one. If you’d like to check out the full refurbishment, head over here. And to tour the rest of Stefanie’s house, click here.
Room reveals and serious makeovers
When Stefanie and her family purchased this dwelling it was in a far from liveable state. Taking a peek at the before photos reveals a seriously run-down property in need of desperate attention. Luckily, the abode is now a far-cry from its original condition, with fully renovated rooms that are beautifully adorned and decorated.
Each living space has been given time and consideration, while the overall appearance is cohesive and thoughtful. To get in the spirit of Christmas we took a peek inside the basement family room. Check it out here, while picking up a few decorative tips for your own home.
If you want to stay up to date with Stefanie and her Brooklyn Limestone, you can follow her Instagram account. Filled with aspirational picks from other designers, while also including plenty of pics from her own home, we’re sure you’ll find something to inspire and delight.
