When old and new come together

Posted on Sun, 24 May 2015 by KiM

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.

I love the conceptual underpinning and execution, but I think it would work better as an office rather than a home. It's too rigorous for everyday life (mine at least).

I love mixing old and new but my taste in "old" is antiques and soft worn rugs and fabrics and "new" would be perhaps a few modern pieces of furniture.
The coldness of the rooms in these photos seems to need a lot more soft warm colors , fabrics etc.

Sissy says:

this minimalistic style is ideal for a holiday home.
