I love to see people take risks in the world of interior design, even if it isn’t to my taste nor something I can imagine living in. If it’s ballsy I give it 2 thumbs up. Like this all black apartment in St. Petersburg I found on The Village. Black from floor to ceiling, sparkly drippy chandeliers, swag burgundy curtains and bedding. I hate to say it but had I not known what website this was from my first guess would have been it was located in Russia. Do you think you could live here?

There are a couple of my dream scenarios intersecting in this Chelsea loft by Tali Roth Interior Design. Yes it’s a loft. It’s in New York. Light is flooding in and it’s predominantly white. Sigh. I don’t live in a loft or in New York. I do have the light but with a dog and a husband who doesn’t realise he’s made a mess at times (he’s blind) white sofas are definitely out of the question. Lucky I’m happy with what I’ve got but a girl can dream of an oh so lovely, far away, light, bright loft.
How do you keep an industrial loft from being too cold? Add in lots of patterned rugs, art and plants, throw in a dog for added cuteness and you have a home that could not be cozier. Those windows are hella good. Home of LA designer Patrick Ediger.
Let’s tick off our ultimate apartment check list. Large rooms with exposed timber beams and steel framed windows. Killer art collection. Pierre Jeanneret chairs. Expansive terrazzo floors and for added impact a monolithic terrazzo kitchen island. Have we forgotten anything? Oh yes! A Paris address. Rue Galilée by Bernard Dubois Architects

Quenching my thirst for industrial lofts with this location home beauty in London available via Shoot Factory. 2690 sq ft of open plan awesomeness. It’s no wonder the owner filled it with plants. Those windows and everything painted white makes for such a bright space. LOVE!
