Here I go again getting all excited about a classic look done just a little differently, traditional decor with a twist, in this case in an old 1860’s in commercial building with exposed brick and crumbling plaster. It reminds me a little of a faded old palazzo, just not so grand, perhaps a bit more gritty and down to earth. There are a few things I would change but I love the idea of fine living in an unusual space, that unexpected twist. Industrial Redux in Mississippi by Barry Dixon.
Keeping my industrial loft obsession going strong is this absolutely incredible apartment on the top floor of a converted factory in the British town of Loughborough. I’m not sure what I’m dying over most – the exposed brick, the ceiling trestles, the collection of Togo sofas, the massive antique crystal chandeliers, allllllll those windows, the view, the copper bathtub, the marble sink…… OMG!!!

Keeping things simple and somewhat minimalist today with this loft apartment in London. Gorgeous worn wood floors, concrete columns, a dramatic dark panelled bedroom and some homeliness added in with some paintings and lot of plants makes this apartment something I could totally call home.

We’re huge fans of conversions here at DTI and this one is….majestic being the first word that comes to mind. That staircase!!! Believed to have built in the early 1900s, this former brewery cooperage on a tight site in Central London had already been in residential use since the 1990s. By stripping back to the buildings fabric and preserving its original features it was possible to bring a new understanding to its potential. The existing basement was extended laterally to create a large open-plan family living area over which rises a triple height atrium – a space around which much of the accommodation is structured and through which passes a dramatic feature staircase. The vertical extension rises from the top of the building and is occupied by bedrooms and a generous roof terrace with far-reaching roof-top views. To distinguish this extension from the original brick structure a system of patinated bronze cladding panels and glass has been used. By Chris Dyson Architects. (Photos: Peter Landers)
Nothing beats a backdrop of an industrial loft. Add in some vibrant colours, patterns, textures, and vintage furnishings and you have an eclectic and sophisticated space. This gem is located in a building in Madrid built in 1935 and was transformed by architect Peyo Basurto of Ping Pong Estudio, interior designer María Ruiz-Mateos and stylist Mercedes Díaz de Rábago.
