It's hard to give a color theme to it, possibly blues, there the standard little Ms inside of it. The station's entrance is via single narrow mezzanine with a cross-over towards the center of the station. Two staircases lead up from each platform to the turnstiles and up to two street stairs on either side of Montrose Avenue and the west side of Bushwick Avenue.
