We moved into One Brooklyn in late October of 2011, three months before we were married. After exploring endless options in Manhattan and Brooklyn, we settled on the first apartment we had seen. It was perfect, nestled in the midst of Brooklyn Bridge Park, which is being developed over the next several years.
Pier 6 is mostly finished, complete with a dog run and a one acre playground with a water lab. It also has three beach volleyball courts up and running, and several restaurants in the summer, including Bark, which has delicious hot dogs and beer.
Pier 5 is being developed this summer, and the first installation will be several soccer fields, followed by grills for public use.

Ok, now that you've got your surroundings, lets check out the floor plan for our home.
|::opens door: and, we're home.|
|Front door is on the left, office door is on the right.|
And that's it for the hallway; now lets check out the second bedroom.
And now we'll saunter down the hallway, and make a right, and we'll be at the second bathroom.
I adore this room because we had it wallpapered. We also painted the door in chalkboard paint, though I never got chalk. We bought fabric for a full-length extra-long shower curtain, which will be made soon, so these pictures will be updated. I haven't hung anything on the walls because I'm afraid of doing anything to destroy the wallpaper.
And now we're walking down the hallway again, and glancing left to check out some art and the dining room.
The Saarinen Table is a knock off which we got at InMod.com, and the chairs are from Room & Board. I love the bowl on the table, which we got at Ikea.
And now for the living room...
The fabric for the sheer was purchased at Clarence House (read more) and sewn by Sew and Sew by Mitchell.
And before we head out, check out a shot of the kitchen...
We haven't touched the kitchen's design, but we're planning on replacing those pendant lights soon with something more industrial.
Off to the master suite...
Our master bathroom is our zen-zone. Candles, glass shower, tub, yes please.
And there you have it. We're still very much in progress, but we've made major strides this year. Thanks for checking out our home, and stay tuned for more progress in the upcoming months!
