When we heard our pal Helena Glazer Hodne, the famed fashion and lifestyle blogger behind Brooklyn Blonde, was renovating her outdoor patio, we couldn’t wait to see the finished product. We knew that Helena’s love for all-things neutral combined with her keen sense of style and design would make for a small space Brooklyn oasis.
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Helena is no stranger to making the most out of square footage. “While we love the hustle and bustle of the city, it was incredibly important to my husband and I to create what felt like a mini escape from the city,” she says. “We wanted a backyard that felt like a retreat in the jungle a space where we could unwind and relax after a chaotic day, but also a space suitable to entertaining.”
