Praise for Design Brooklyn:

“A terrific book. Anne Hellman and Michel Arnaud perfectly capture the essence of the innovative, independent style of the creative people who define Brooklyn!”
―Wendy Goodman, Design Editor, New York magazine
 
“Brooklyn’s design identity is captured in this inspired collection of projects that takes you from the manufacturing past of the Brooklyn Navy Yard to influential architect-designed new construction, with plenty of bespoke brownstone renovations and handmade artists’ studios in the mix.”
―Francesca Connolly, New York editor of Remodelista.com
 
“The creativity that New York City is so known for seemed synonymous with Manhattan . . . that was until Brooklyn bloomed. And boy, has it bloomed!”
―Newell Turner, editor in chief, Hearst Design Group
 
“Brooklyn’s cutting-edge creativity, beauty, and bold self-confidence are well represented in this extraordinary book of Brooklyn design. Brooklyn has more character and characters than anywhere else in the world, and that spirit of originality and sense of history is vibrant and alive in these homes and cultural institutions.”
―Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn borough president
 
“No sleep till you devour Design Brooklyn―a thrilling guide to architecture and décor in the mythical New York City borough. From a Beastie Boy’s clever brownstone renovation to insider tours of cultural spaces and imaginative restaurant design, this stunning and idea-packed guide to Brooklyn design shows how wonderfully the old can meld with the new. Design Brooklyn is sure to resonate far beyond its borders.”
―Ingrid Abramovitch, Author of Restoring a House in the City

“A visual feast of the best of Brooklyn style.”
atHome magazine

“Packed with engaging back stories of Brooklyn’s homes, shops, restaurants and public institutions like Fort Greene Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Visitor Center in Prospect Heights.” ―New York Times

“It’s turned the borough into a playground for high design, all beautifully chronicled in a new survey by Anne Hellman, Design Brooklyn, with page after page of gorgeous photos by Michel Arnaud.” ―Town & Country

Design Brooklyn is expansive, inclusive and filled with inspiring ideas and images of interiors, both public and private.” ―Janel Laban, Apartment Therapy

“What makes this book special, is that it documents the interior spaces of Brooklyn in a way that I haven’t seen before. We all know that Brooklyn has drastically changed in the last few years, but it’s rare to get the opportunity to peek into some of the private homes or have the luxury of time or money to check out all the new public spaces―restaurants, bars and hotels―that have popped up around the borough . . . It gave me a new appreciation for the sheer volume of design happening in Brooklyn every day.” ―Amy Azzarito, Design*Sponge 

“Quirky, spirited, surprising and useful―brimming with charm and delight.” ―New York Times Book Review
