I love it when old buildings are getting a new life. This former school building in Amsterdam has been transformed into apartments and on the top floor is this wonderful loft. I love how you can still see the old structure of the building with the exposed beams. It’s a very playful and unique home in Amsterdam.
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!!)
This Berlin apartment of only 40 square meter has been transformed by Project Architecture Company into a luxurious loft. They added a large multifunctional wall that serves as bookshelves, workspace, sleeping loft and storage space. Not only is it multifunctional but it’s also a great eye catcher. I love the touch of pink that you can see from the sleeping loft. The space may be small but it feels spacious and looks absolutely luxurious.
This loft apartment in Clerkenwell, London used to be a factory where barrels were made. Now it has been turned into a stunning apartment that we can not only look at but you can stay in it as well! The (triple height!) living space has a beautiful exposed brick wall, a marble kitchen and a real eye catching dining space. Look at those indoor plants, isn’t it amazing? The apartment has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all beautifully designed. On top of that there is – of course – also a roof terrace, what more can you possibly want?
A 19th-century factory that hasn’t been brutally ‘renovated’ isn’t something you come across easily in New York. However this 1400 square foot loft apartment in TriBeCa hadn’t been touched in the last 50 years and still featured many original details. Søren Rose Studio designed this apartment were they created the perfect balance between New York architecture and Scandinavian minimalism. Stunning!
After seeing only one image of this home in Amsterdam I knew it would be a stunner and it really is! In a former garage in a canal home in Amsterdam lies this spacious and bright loft apartment. With high ceilings, beautiful orginal beams and many vintage elements the owners transformed this space into a unique and light space. During the renovation they had help of a ‘building biologist’ to make this home as ecological as possible. By reusing materials you’re not only helping the enviroment but I also think it gives the home some extra charm. The entire home is absolutely stunning, but 2 things stand out for me; the bathroom (with bathtub dating back to 1900) and those amazing skylights in the living room. What a dream!
This amazing loft in New York belongs to Benjamin Sormonte and Elisa Marshall – the couple behind the New York café Maman. Their vintage loft in Tribeca is thé definition of charming. The loft has beautiful white-painted brick walls and every item is carefully selected by the owners. This way they ended up with flea market finds from Ibiza and other vintage pieces they found in Brooklyn. They couldn’t find a sofa that they liked so they made a couch/guest bed from pallets which is inspired by outdoor furniture from Ibiza. Everything in this home fits together and I love the laid-back and cozy vibe in this home.
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.
Spring has arrived so this is the time to add some plants to your home decor. Now you can choose to decorate your home with a plant here and there or you can do it like Hilton Connor. Hilton and his girlfriend live in a converted cotton mill in Baltimore. Their loft with high ceilings and large windows is completely filled with plants. Hilton and his girlfriend wanted to create a home that feels comfortable and one that never gets boring. Not only is their loft filled with plants, the walls are also covered in art and the place is packed with small personal objects. I think we can best describe this loft as a personal art-filled urban jungle.
I often hear that Scandinavian homes don’t have enough colour. Now personally I really like the more typical Scandinavian homes but a little colour here and there certainly doesn’t harm the interior. For the lovers of Scandinavian homes ánd colour I show you this Copenhagen loft. The rich colours work really well because of the large windows and high ceilings. The old beams from the building – that dates from 1877 – have been preserved to give the spaces some extra character. This loft has a beautiful combination of classic Scandinavian design pieces, historics features and modern elements.
