Celebrity Homes: Jewelry Designer Lizzie Fortunato Brooklyn Apartment – When approaching the front door of Lizzie Fortunato’s circa-1930s brick apartment building, and you can just feel that something dreamy is upstairs.
“I love the beams in the bedroom, the clawfoot bathtub, the shutters in the dining room that fold in and out,” says Lizzie, counting all the ways in which she’s come to love the space she shares with her boyfriend, Peter Asbill. The couple occupies the top two floors of a three-story townhouse on a tree-lined street in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn. Their landlord, who lives on the first floor, has painstakingly restored the building from the ground up to it’s original grandeur. And if there’s anyone who can appreciate quality, history, and design, it’s Lizzie.
“Peter loves our wide-open, sun-drenched kitchen, and I love sitting on the sofa [nearby] while he cooks”—and larger gatherings. “We’ve been known to pull up little tables to the ends of the dining table and really pack our guests in,” says Lizzie. Wide-plank wood floors stretch from the dining room to the main living room, and upstairs to the master bedroom and second, casual living space. The home’s timeless elements, like the stone fireplaces, beautiful trim woodwork, and subway-tile clad bathrooms, live in harmony with pattern-rich textiles from their far-flung travels, along with treasured family heirlooms, striking that effortlessly cool, collected look.
