It’s not 2014 yet, but Elle Decoration UK is forecasting a chic new year with its just-released January issue. We’re swooning over this Brooklyn Heights home which features stunning original details, such as crown molding, herringbone wood floors, and ornately carved fireplaces. The juxtaposition of the pre-war architecture with minimal, midcentury modern pieces makes the interiors seem even more grand than they are — quite a feat. Imposing mirrors and a chandelier dripping with crystal reflect the natural light of soaring windows beautifully. In other words, it’s a dream. Visit Elle Decoration UK for the full tour — or purchase the issue on Zinio or iTunes.
