A loft apartment by The New Design Project

Posted on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 by KiM

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.

where is the bench at the foot of the bed from?

KiM says:

The bench is from CB2

I love the mix of modern and vintage. Most people would look at that brick wall, and cover it up before they did anything else. Kudos for actually making it look good. I just wonder if something like this could be built from the ground up. I can imagine it being a little different than transforming an old building, into something more modern.

I really love the design for this home! I especially like the brick wall, it gives it a nice old-fashioned feel, which is great since the rest of the design is quite modern. I personally think that having brick walls inside homes is a really nice touch. Right now I am trying to find a good apartment like this, but they can be difficult to find. Do you have any advice on how I can find an apartment that is like this? Thanks for sharing these pictures!

I love what you have done to the apartment. It is beautiful and looks to fun to be in. I cannot wait until I am able to get my own apartment and decorate it the way that I want. There are a lot of great designs and decorations that could happen. I hope that I am able to find something that works with what I am doing soon.
