I HAD TO- Miranda Brooks- Part 2

i know, i know, everyone has blogged about landscape designer Miranda Brooks chic Brooklyn brownstone that was just featured recently in vogue. it’s so good, i had to too!

Miranda and her architect husband, Bastien Halard, and their two daughters, Poppy and Violet Grey, moved from Manhattan to Brooklyn motivated by a growing family and the need for space. Halard actually found the place on craigslist and soon as Miranda saw the carriage house she had to have it!

Halard did the renovation and Miranda the gardens. not a surprise the house is as chic and as beautiful as the both of them, and their sweet daughters and all their pets makes it even better! read more here.

miranda is a favorite, i like to talk about her a lot, therefore, i couldn’t resist talking about her chic brooklyn home even if everyone else has talked about it too! i’m sorry, but i had to!
