Bond Street loft

Yes, I continue to have lofty dreams. This loft, again by DHD Architecture and Design is a gorgeous blend of industrial and chic. This pied-à-terre loft with soaring fourteen foot ceilings, sits within a classic cast iron building in the heart of Noho, NYC. It is home to a couple who are serious about their art. The wide plank grey oak floors and white gallery walls set the palette for an art filled environment. A custom designed silk rug fills the main space, while the large-scale Lindsey Adelman light installation hangs above. The furniture, a mix of vintage and classic contemporary, were carefully curated to create a home that is elegant and subtle yet eclectic. The use of cowhide, mohair, woven leather and velvet create subtle textures against the painted brick and wood planked walls. (Photos: Rick Lew)

Stuff...and things

Minimalists beware. This British warehouse conversion available through The Modern House (designed by 6a Architects) may induce heart palpitations and shortness of breath. It is FILLED to the rafters with STUFF. And THINGS. And more stuff. And I am afraid to admit this....but I kind of like it. Except for the kitchen. A kitchen with that much clutter would drive me mad. I am however, feeling some plant envy. Details can be found here

Apartment on Leningradsky Prospekt

I wanted to share this apartment in Russia with you, because it is a wonderful example of modern, minimalist architecture done right in a small space. While fairly simple in its design, the black steel wall/windows is a DREAM, with white painted brick, concrete ceiling, sleek cabinetry and flooring, and the deep window sills all work so well together. I LOVE it....except maybe the hammock. I would prefer a sofa. :) Great job Crosby Studios!

When old and new come together

I can't get enough of lofts...and this one is a really cool mix of fold and new. Located in Russia (or Latvia?) this 2 story apartment was renovated with ideas of keeping it minimalist and bright, and to show a contrast of eras while preserving the original features. The windows are incredible, and while the kitchen seems dark which would make me crazy, I really like the rest of the open layout. Via The Village.

Loft à Montmartre

A beautiful multilevel loft in a converted workshop in the heart of Montmartre. Large windows overlook the courtyard garden while allowing light to stream into the space. White walls play off old oak floors and the level changes accommodate bedroom, living and kitchen dining areas.  The industrial look of the old building is retained but modernised. This project was realised in 2008 and the photos appear to show its early stage occupation, a little stark, a little empty, missing the personal touches. I would love to see it 7 years on as its owners have settled in and imprinted their lives on its old walls. Loft à Montmartre by Delphine Martin-Michaud of 2DESIGN.
