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.
WOW! This 400 sq ft cabin in Swannanoa, North Carolina is a simple blend of Scandinavian and Japanese sensibilities and is so brilliantly laid out to maximize the small footprint. While being essentially one open space, it has a living room, breakfast nook, a bathroom, a kitchen, a media loft, a tea loft, and a bedroom. Designed by Shelter Collective – an interior design + architecture + custom furnishings studio whose attention to detail is impeccable. (You can rent this via Airbnb!)
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.

I’m having heart palpitations over the Guatemalan home of designer Rodman Primack. Colours and patterns and textures (and the tile!!!!!) within spacious rooms and incredible soaring ceilings make this home spectacular.

I’m not sure I can ever really get behind minimalism, but this converted warehouse in Sydney transformed into a concrete bunker of sorts is really quite beautiful. That curved ceiling and the 2 story impact of it is spectacular. It’s incredible that such a simple architectural detail could add so much interest. I also love how the curve is found throughout the loft (sofa, console, mirror, shower door). Brutalism with a cocooning impact. Designed by Matt Woods.
