Hi there! I'm Stefanie, blogger behind Brooklyn Limestone
where I chronicle the adventures of striving to live a well-designed life under the roof of a 100-year old townhouse in New York. Focusing on 'real life' design, Brooklyn Limestonefeatures renovation stories, decor, and design advice, DIY tutorials, entertaining tips, organizing ideas, travel inspiration, and more.
After what feels like a particularly long winter, spring has finally sprung in the city! With the longer days and warmer temps, comes an itching desire to bring a little bit of life into my living space. While I daydream about having lots of space to plant elaborate vegetable gardens and a fabulous greenhouses, reality reminds me that I only have a few square feet of concrete in which to play. Instead, I'll try to make the most of my urban jungle with a few manageable potted plants.
Familiar to anyone living in my area is the ubiquitous stoop garden. A few brightly flowering plants here make the entryway feel more welcoming and fresh but it's not just for the passersby.
