Peek Inside Brooklyn Blonde Blogger Helena Glazer's Gorgeous N.Y.C. Townhouse
Given the frequency of posts on her blog, Brooklyn Blonde, it's easy to keep up-to-date with Helena Glazer's picturesque life. So when we heard the fashion savvy writer, who's expecting her first child next month, would be redesigning her presumably already fabulous Bay Ridge home, which she shares with her husband, Keith Hodne, we were keen on getting a closer look.
To carry out the ambitious undertaking, Glazer enlisted the help of home furnishing chain HomeGoods and Matthew Cane, one of interior design service Homepolish's star designers, to transform the three-bedroom townhouse into a rustic modern sanctuary. "I've lived in apartments my whole life, so this has been a dream," Glazer says.

THE LIVING ROOM
Glazer's sun-drenched living room is filled with contemporary art and antique mirrors that she's collected at local flea markets. Her couch, which used to be by the window, has been moved along the entryway, which makes the space feel more defined. "It made it much easier to watch TV, too!" she says.
THE DINING ROOM
Prints by British grafitti artist Banksy face each other on the walls of Glazer's dining room, which mixes classic upholstered chairs with contemporary lucite pieces and quirky add-ons, like this galactic ceiling light. "We wanted a rustic feel with a little bit glam," she says.
THE MASTER BEDROOM
The master bedroom is bathed in a sea of neutrals, including two geometric marble lamps from HomeGoods. "I like color in certain places, but I'm more into patterns," she says. "That's how I dress, so it's an extension of that. I wanted this to be a room where I woke up and felt good energy."
The nursery, Glazer's favorite room, is a mix of gray and navy color palettes. "We wanted it to feel soft, but reflective of our style," she says. The medallion light fixture on the ceiling, she adds, was the perfect grown-up touch.
