The loft list

Posted on Wed, 6 Apr 2016 by midcenturyjo

Light filled. Tick. Huge open plan. Tick. Steel framed windows. Tick. White painted bricks and white washed floors. Tick tick. Cool artwork, fab furniture, a statement fireplace and even the obligatory accessory, the swing. Tick all those boxes. There is a definite loft love list that we keep here at Desire to Inspire and this Harrison St. interior, in the heart of Manhattan’s TriBeCa, by Søren Rose Studio is definitely a success.

Gambling den to family home

Posted on Tue, 15 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

A former office and gambling joint reinvented as a family home. This stunning loft with its industrial materials palette of exposed brick and concrete is warmed by beautiful old wooden doors and floors. Highlights for me? The bath, all the storage, the shutters and, of course, that brick. De Korendrager by Dutch interior design and branding agency TANK.

A very industrial SOHO apartment

Posted on Sun, 6 Mar 2016 by KiM

Three Seven is made up of Caroline Petit of France and American Jonas Mason. Together they are out to conquer the world (or at least America) by dumpster diving, attending auctions, exploring abandoned barns and neglected garages in the hunt for vintage treasures. You can check out the products they have found and sell in their shop here, and this SOHO apartment is an example of the thrifted, industrial style they love.


Happy midcentury

Posted on Fri, 5 Feb 2016 by KiM

I have a fantastic makeover to share with you today sent in by the folks at Indiana-based Susan Yeley Interiors. Let me start right off the bat with some before photos. From totally boring…..

…to totally awesome with a midcentury vibe!! Here’s the scoop: This small midcentury home south of campus has great bones but lacked vibrancy—a je ne sais quoi that the clients were searching to savoir once and for all. SYI worked with them to nail down a design direction and furniture plan, and they decided to invest in the big-impact items first: built-ins and lighting and a fresh paint job that included a beautiful deep blue-green line around the windows. The vintage rug was an Etsy score at an awesome price, but only after the client spent months scouring options and sources online that matched the vision and dimensions of the plan. A good year later, the West Elm sofa went on sale, so the client took advantage; some time after that, they painted the kitchen, created the drop zone/bench area, and rounded out the room with occasional tables and accessories. 

Meritxell Ribé encore

Because they mix old and new so well. Because family living can be stylish. Because Spanish tile gets me every time. That’s why I wanted to share more fabulous apartment from Meritxell Ribé and The Room Studio.
