Life in black.

Of course they have a pet boa constrictor. It practically goes without saying.

Very cool living space.

How do you say pretentious in Goth?

Very relaxed feeling especially considering they are in the middle of NYC. I really felt the contrast of calm that was created with the counterintuitive bold choice to make the kitchen area dark. Much more enjoyable to have a big space with minimal objects than a tiny house with stuff crammed into storage spaces. I wonder what kind of storage spaces do they have and why wasn't that part of the video?

Out, out, white privilege!

Why wasn't the snake black?

'Cause I know what it means... to walk along the lonely street of dreams

I know this neighborhood well. I'd guess that house (which he inherited) is probably worth upwards of 2 million, conservatively. Make of that what you will.

What a couple of weirdos. Good luck selling that.

Apparently I watched a different video:If You Like Black, White and Minimalism, You’ll Love this Tribeca Loft | Interior Lives

I accidentally put that code up first and quickly changed it. I do want to blog that at a later date. Sorry for the confusion.

Well, I see a red door and I want to paint it black...

Well, if they're happy all power to them. They appear to be a bit cranky, to me. The decor does make the sofa stand out, in its understated way.

Wait until Red Bill finds out one of the serfs has a crossbow. Attention will be paid.

Phidippus said...

Sorry, "compound bow", I meant. Same outcome expected, though.

Chris White said...

They remind me of Otho from "Beetlejuice".

I made it to the 41 second mark and had to turn it off. It's so...you know...New York design class-ish. It's cool, pretentious, full of itself, and neat to look at. And it should be the first address the peasants storm when Alexandra OC and her merry band of Socialists take charge of rearranging society.

I lived in Boerum Hill in the early 70s, when the first generation of gentrifiers were buying and renovating old brownstones (mostly then with their own sweat equity.) This couple seem more like upscale Upper West Side or Village People of that era. But what I loved about NYC then endures: people who are really into their professions and really into their vision of how to live.

Side note: the narrator describes them as in "Cobble Hill," which then was the next over more desirable (just below Brooklyn Heights) location. Some things never change.
