Unique walls, large windows, open floor plans, vaulting ceilings, pillars, stone, wood, and metal…add them all together for more loft space love. Love this Loblenz loft in Denmark via Peter Hardt Immobilien. Architecturally brilliant.
Who says a loft can’t feel warm? This Bartley Loft in Toledo, Ohio feels warm and inviting with warm tones, soft lighting and rugs. Love the exposed pipe. The windows are gorgeous.
A wall of books and brick walls, pillars and exposed pipes complete this beautiful New York loft apartment space. Love the carpet layout.
Another New York loft, this time in Soho. The windows and floors, hands down, are to die for. The decor and design options are endless in this space.
Another loft love with a lot of warmth. Colors are soft and lovely and perfect for this Seattle loft. What a view!
Fresh and sleek. This modern loft in Arizona is so simple and stylish. Another great window view. My love for loft apartments grows.

Feeling loft love in Soho today. This cool and eclectic loft apartment on Mercer Street in the Soho area of Manhattan features too many incredible design ideas to mention. This gorgeous loft maintains most of the original industrial details, including iron columns, the original floors, and these unique tin ceilings.
The owners of the space bring their eclectic taste in with the many collected artworks and furniture choices. The open floor plan is free feeling, yet intimate. Natural light floods the loft from the large windows which still maintain original window casings. The light reflects off white walls and the white tin ceilings to brighten the space.
I love this huge three sides book shelf wall that works as a room divider. The lighting over the table is so unique, as well as the decal art on the walls.
The home office is simple, modern and clean, yet keeps the loft feel.
Can’t get over the light fixture in this bathroom.
A touch of warmth in the bedroom with more reds, mushroom colored walls, and unique wallpaper. A nice combination of masculine and feminine.

Bright and spacious, I’ve found loft love in interior designer, Barbara Littman’s loft in Chelsea, New York. What is inspiring too, is this 69 year old mother of three with six grandchildren, who hasn’t nestled herself into some comfy little cottage-like atmosphere, but is spreading her wings instead of folding them. She went for a master’s degree in architecture in her 50s. Now that’s encouragement. A woman still on the move, Littman teaches interior and furniture design at Kean University in New Jersey and also at the NJ Institute of Technology.
She purchased this loft in 2009 for just under $4 Million. After two years of renovation, $190,000 to revamp to her taste, and with the aid of New York architect Robert D. Henry, Littman now has the space of her dreams.
What she says of her newly renovated loft space: “When I look out the window, I just love being part of the city. It’s the energy here that’s always been something for me.”

The Oil Mill Loft, found at Loftenberg.com, is an exquisitely luxurious loft space that is centuries old, located in Extramadura, Spain.
The building was originally constructed in the 12th century by monks. It later became an oil mill.
Due to its historic value, much of the orginal architecture was kept intact. The exposed stone and brickworks, the beams, all add to the incredible fluency of this loft space. The building was neglected for nearly two decades when the current owners took over. They hired architect Ricardo Elizondo to create this inspiring loft home. I love the furniture, the color choices in the interior’s decor, which makes this ancient space so comfortable to live in.
Something about eh blue and beige tones with the stone stops my designer’s heart. I’m simply in love with this Oil Mill Loft!

Right now I live in a roomy townhouse with multiple floors, but if I ever had to live in a more urban setting, like New York, I would have to fulfill my loft dreams! To me there is nothing more fresh and inviting than a clean open space, decorated to perfection, of course. I love this glamorous loft designed by Tori Golub.
Lofts were originally built as an apartment in the top floor of a barn or a building. The unique roof/ceiling architecture was used to create a unique open living space. I love what was done to create this loft apartment in Stockholm. The peaked roof and the block-book shelves are perfection. Built in fireplace looks yummy also and give the cool space a warm feel.
This loft space in New York gives the perfect definition of industrial: high ceilings, big windows, open floor space, exposed pipes, concrete wall and floors, the use of metals and wood for apartment features and decor. Often lofts will feature the exposed brick walls of the building.
Cute loft apartment in Sweden.
Ultra modern and fresh loft space.
Concrete can do just about anything...and looks stunning too! Who would have thought?
New York City Apartments… We all know the architecture around and about New York City is fascinating. I went on a search for some interesting entrances that anyone may come across when stepping out of their New York City apartments. These special little places caught my eye.

Another unique place: Hells Kitchen boarding house on West 51st Street.
