Dining inside restaurants is forbidden again while covid numbers skyrocket and temperatures drop here in Ottawa which means you can wear many layers and dine under a tent surrounded by heat lamps, order in or cook your own damn dinner. It’s been a while since I dined in a restaurant and I’m fairly certain I have never dined inside one that was decorated in steampunk style and I really dig this one, located in a traditional terrace house on Kaohsiung city, Taiwan, and designed by HAO Design.

I really should stop real estate stalking. More to the point I really should stop lurking on The Modern House‘s website. Then I wouldn’t be blown away by this industrial repurposing. The amazing space was a once a brewery cooperage in Clerkenwell. Be still my beating heart. It’s my industrial ideal. But it’s not only the closed borders thanks to corona virus that are stopping me from buying this amazing home. It’s the price tag of £7,250,000. Sigh!
Part gallery, part apartment, all style. The Milan loft home of Tommaso Spinzi of Spinzi Design a Milan and Melbourne based interior design firm is inspirational and aspirational. I think I’d take one of everything from contemporary to design classics from the 70s and 80s. It’s my kryptonite.
Dreaming of lofts as I always do, and this 4700 sq ft 4 story former perfume warehouse in London is an absolutely gorgeous conversion. I am so relieved to see that most of the original architectural details were preserved. The floors and windows are exceptional. And with all that open space your furniture layout options are limitless. I’d spend my weekends thrifting and rearranging everything 🙂 For sale via The Modern House.
Bringing my loft dreams to life in this dreamy industrial space created by Studio Bakker. In organic succession, Studio Bakker renovated, redesigned and styled this former archive attic in a historic Amsterdam canal house, transforming it into a loft style home consisting of five connected floors under two roofs. An enchanting route leads to an oasis of peace and quiet, decorated with earthy materials and corresponding color palette with natural light pouring in from various sides. A Wabi-sabi aesthetic provides the lens through which modern and vintage design pieces mix with a host of honest materials – including old and new woods, loam and granite, steel and aluminum, leather and linen. The styling subtly references the wealth of cultures housed beneath these roofs.
