Apartment Makeover: Inside Brooklyn's Hottest Home Store!

We have a confession to make: We're not exactly sure we've nailed down our apartment aesthetic…yet. But, when we met Paul Bright, owner of Brooklyn's coolest new home store, Bright Lyons, we couldn't help but feel like we had found the very guy who could help transform our digs. Right here in our very own casa confidential, Paul dishes on his decorating dos and don'ts and his passion for wainscoting. Seriously, if you're down for a DIY, he'll come over and help you out, beer in hand! In fact, after a few brewskis, this interior guru gave us a tour of his playful-modernist-but-still-sophisticated Atlantic Avenue furniture and arts shop. It's got all the colors of a Crayola mega-box with the restraint of a Sol LeWitt. Bright, right?
Click through to get seriously inspired by Bright's eclectic, multi-hued boutique—it's well worth the ride on the G train.
