A Victorian Townhouse in Brooklyn Brimming with Character

Interior designer Christina Salway takes us inside her charming pre-war Victorian townhouse in Brooklyn, New York.

Christina has thoughtfully designed her townhouse to honor its history and original features while infusing modern touches to ensure it never feels dated. She meticulously restored the crown molding and floors, adding antiques she has collected throughout the years.

Unlike many modern renovations, Christina chose to preserve the individual rooms that add unique charm and character to the home, rather than turn it into an open floor plan. Her townhouse even boasts an outdoor space, a true luxury in New York City.
