Loft Love in Soho

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.


Eclectic Interest

Quite an eclectic mix of style and antique wonders bleeds to the artistic in Liza Sherman’s apartment in Manhattan. The legendary antiques dealer is sharp, confident woman, possessing a quirkiness of a woman half her age. Her living space features an Italian daybed with burlap upholstery, a 1950s Hollywood style light, and a train rail cart as a cocktail table.

Her study features a French banner, a floating chair!, a 1940s French floor lamp and a vintage 1950s metal spring chair.  Eclecticism at its finest. Of decor style Sherman says, “I don’t decorate. I see objects and furniture as shapes, lines, and forms,” and that, “Perfect surfaces don’t interest me.”

Sherman’s master bedroom displays a portrait by Liam Ritt, the fireplace mantle serves as a headboard for the bed, a dresser from India along with framed 1920s bathing suits.

Eclectic Design

By definition an eclectic approach to design delves into a wide range of styles selected from various design sources, yet, somehow, all fit seamlessly together creating a multifarious living space.  The image above and the following, found at House of Turquoise, give the new apartment dweller may diverse ideas for decorating in the eclectic interior design approach.  From color choices, to furniture patterns, to wall spaces, eclectically speaking, the sky is the limit.
