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.

 

Loft Dreams

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.
