What first peaked my interest in this design team was this fabulously simple, white, clean, concise, classic-looking kitchen showcased in this month's House Beautiful (July 2012):

Isn't that an amazing one-of-a-kind island??? I love the organic shape of it. It's quite literally a usable art piece and it totally defines the space. I also love the use of stainless stools (these ones a mere $99 from Home Decorators Collection) to complement the stainless steel appliances.
After "googling" The Brooklyn Home Company (T.B.H.Co.) and then subsequently spending lots of time flipping through their portfolio, I discovered that they had created another space that I've seen in several other publications - yes, I've pinned it, dog-eared it, and highlighted it many a time because it's so inspiring. Has anyone else drooled over this space?
My favorite parts are EVERYTHING! The livable white (livable in that you could actually have kids in this house), natural light, black window frames, organic shapes, high ceilings, exposed beams, myriad textures, a cozy loft (need I say more?)
I strongly recommend you check out the entire portfolio - T.B.H.Co. even has a few "available" spaces you can dream about. The cool part is that most of the dwellings are smaller apartments, condos or duplexes that real people could actually live in (real people with deep pockets, I'm sure). I did see lots of IKEA, West Elm, and ZGallerie pieces throughout their spaces - it's nice to be reminded that more affordable design is still beautiful design.
Here are a few more of their minimalist but warm spaces that I couldn't get enough of:
What are your thoughts? Do you like the simplicity in color? Are you drawn to natural elements and textures in design? How bout those Herringbone floors?!?
