The element of surprise

I love the element of surprise in a space. A modern chair pulled up to a early 1900s wooden desk. A graphic piece of art hanging above granny's old rocker. A sleek glass dining table with an antique brass chandelier hanging above. I laughed when I stumbled upon these photos. 

The loft space is heavenly but anyone with no sense of imagination would then fill it top to bottom with industrial decor (ok, this is probably an ad for Restoration Hardware or something similar so they can get away with it). I'll forgive those responsible as I freaking LOVE those chesterfields and all that exposed brick.. (Photos by Scott Gabriel Morris)

A loft apartment by The New Design Project

This is another one of those scenarios where I apparently have been living under a rather large rock. How have I never come across this super talented design firm, based in Brooklyn NY, founded by an Anglo-French husband and wife team of ex-bankers? The New Design Project is Fanny Abbes and James Davison and their style rocks my world. Exhibit A - I LOVE THIS LOFT!!! A young couple's urban residence is enriched with bursts of bold color and texture, transforming it into an elegant and modern apartment full of strong and vibrant flavors. Modern pieces have been combined with playful accents and ethnic touches to create a space that is eclectic but undeniably urban, and is cool and relaxed whilst feeling grown-up. The use of simple graphic patterns and vivid colors tones down the existing woodwork and prevents the space from feeling overly rustic. Design by Fanny Abbes, photos by Alan Gastelum.

New York dreaming

The New York dream. A loft. Light. Style. Or perhaps a little something more? A three storey conversion of an old Jewish school? Sparse beauty over an art gallery. Pinch me. I really am dreaming. Both by Labo Design Studio.

Raw

I find raw, industrial spaces very inspiring. Location shoot venues are my favourites as they are typically filled with some of the most random bits of furniture and oddities (ie. a pommel horse, because you never know what type of photo shoot or movie might need that!). Shoot Factory has some of the most eclectic and quirky industrial spaces around so I went through their site and picked out some spaces that really stood out. Now I want to go thrifting!!

Yet another loft

To end off loft madness week (this was totally unplanned) I wanted to share this former warehouse with you (I think it is located in Montreal). This one has lots of great industrial touches - also with help from some exposed beams and ductwork and what appear to be original concrete floors. I would be perfectly happy living in a space like this. Via Decormag
