I’m so in love with these garage/warehouse conversions in Amsterdam. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ve already seen a few (just click here, here, here & here) and today this beauty came on the market. This home feels like a New York loft apartment with gorgeous exposed brick walls and despite the fact that the 182sq meter home is located on 1 floor (with a depth of 30 meters) it’s definitely not a dark hole. I’m in love with that skylight in the kitchen that brings in so much light. I think I might have fallen in love with this home.
Sometimes when I’m browsing for inspiration there are homes that immediately pop out. This loft in the city centre of Amsterdam is definitely one of those homes. The house is a whopping 371sq. meter, it has a cozy patio and even a seperate studio apartment on the top floor. The exposed brick and steel doors give the home an industrial vibe but it’s also very cozy. The house reminds me of an Amsterdam garage conversion that I’ve posted on the blog before (you can see that here & here). If you want to live here I’ve some good and bad news. The good news is that the home is for sale, the bad news is that the asking price is 3.3 milion euros (ouch!!)
Tiled floors, stunning wooden doors, exposed beams and brickwork. This home in Valencia is a pearl for people who love original details. Marcial and Andrea bought this place when it was still in terrible condition. Together with Marcial’s brother they completely renovated the home to create a light-filled apartment. Key point was to give the architectural structure of the building the center stage. Thereby they created a home that beautifully combines modern design with historic architecture.
Hunting for George did it again! Exactly one year ago I posted an amazing loft apartment designed by the Australian homeware and furniture supplier. This year they’ve decorated a stunning warehouse apartment with their new collection Welcome Home. The space has everything you wish for in a warehouse apartment. Exposed brick walls, high ceilings, stunning arched windows and decorated with plants and lots of artwork. Take a look for yourself and if you like the style than you can shop the items at Hunting for George.
I’m in love with old derelict buildings that are given a new life. This farmhouse in The Netherlands wasn’t in very good shape when Denny and Vivian bought it, but they fell in love with the location and the unlimited view of the fields behind the farmhouse. Architect Joep van Os decided to add gigantic steel and glass walls so that the owners can fully take in the view that they love so much. The farmhouse has a lovely combination of old and new. They managed to keep the wooden beams and the exposed brick walls that the owners loved very much. The white base and the steel frames add some modern touches to an old building. I love how the architect managed to bring this farmhouse into the 21st-century without losing its historic charm.
A good combination of old and new design is something I hugely appreciate. On first glance this canal home in Amsterdam looks very modern. But luckily they preserved many historical details such as the wooden beams and the exposed brick wall. The kitchen and dining space is situated in the middle of the long apartment. Very clever, a steel and glass roof gives the kitchen space some extra natural light. The steel staircase leads to the bedroom and workroom. Even though the spaces are mainly white, the wooden beams give the apartment the historic charm you can expoect from a canal home. What a wonderful home, minimalist design with historic charm on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam.
The home of Brooke Hammel and Jose Alvarez has everything you wish for in a industrial loft apartment. Exposed brick, lots of concrete and large windows. The couple asked Homepolish to completely design their industrial loft in Brooklyn in only 2 months time. The couple are major art lovers so their art collection has a prominent place in their loft. The gallery wall on the large exposed brick wall is a true eyecatcher in this loft apartment. The other amazing focal point is the large bookcase that showcases all the items that the couple has collected over the years. I’m truly in love with this space, it’s such a nice mixture of styles. And the guestroom in Moroccan style is a nice surprise in this Brooklyn industrial loft.
Gosh I love a good warehouse apartment, especially when you can still see the old features. This stunning warehouse apartment in Sydney has everything that I love about warehouse conversions. Great exposed brickwork in the kitchen and lovely old wooden beams. Combine this with lots of artwork and industrial furnishings and you’ve got yourself a dream home. Everything about this apartment is just right, except for it being in Sydney and costing $1.2 million *sigh*. Well, at least we can dream right?
Pasta Miasta is an Italian restaurant in the Polish city Gdynia. The restaurant, designed by Paulina Kisiel of Studio TURBO, combines Italian café style with an industrial urban style. The bistro chairs and black and white tiles make you feel as if you stepped foot in an Italian café. The Italian style in combination with the exposed brick walls and exposed pipes give the space a cool urban vibe. It’s lovely how they’ve added some greenery in the space with the wire basket on the ceiling and the plant pots on the wall. I’m in love with the glass paneled steel walls that open up the kitchen. That way you can take a peek and see how your Italian dish is being prepared. Pasta Miasta is a beautifully designed restaurant which you perhaps would have expected in New York. Instead you have to take a trip to Gdynia, Poland to see this beauty for yourself (and eat a lot of pasta, obviously!).
Friday is real estate day. A lot of homes hit the market on friday including this lovely attic apartment in Stockholm. Situated on the top floor, this apartment has sloped ceilings and beautiful exposed beams. The exposed brick wall in the living room gives the apartment even more character. Like most Scandinavian homes the color palette is neutral with lots of white, grey and black. But the architectural details certainly make this attic apartment very special. I would love an attic apartment, I always think sloped ceilings make a space so cozy. (Oh.. and no upstairs neighbours is definitely a plus).
