This is the Manhattan apartment of Will Nathan (co-founder of Homepolish, a company that connects interior designers with clients who don't necessarily have massive budgets). Homepolish's other co-founder, Noa Santos, helped him create this homey environment with touches of modern, rustic and masculine elements that work so well against the apartments fabulous features like the brick wall and beamed skylight. I especially love the shelf/rod combo above the bed - awesome in a small space because it eliminates the need for bedside tables (and the rods are just hooked through the shelf brackets).
Found pieces, high with low, beautiful furniture and layers of texture. Neutral palette or rich tones it's all about refined American style devoid of cliché but still familiar, classic. Sophisticated yet relaxed, a stylish ease. Tailored and timeless. Interiors by Mark Cunningham.
Bonus: a few more awesome photos by Benjamin Grimes

Brisbane based interior design firm Wrightson Stewart is on a roll this year. Amazing work and amazing recognition for their innovative, contemporary, masculine designs. Now they have been shortlisted in four categories at the Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) for 2013, Event Design, Workplace Under 1000m2 (both can be seen here), Single Residential and Designer of the Year Award (first time a Queensland firm has been shortlisted for the big gong). It's easy to see why. Here is the warehouse apartment that has been garnering all the attention. So cool, so urban, with a minimal colour palette and clean lines with just a riff of retro. Congratulations WS!
