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.
An industrial shipyard welding hall has been transformed by Nyréns Arkitektkontor into modern light-filled loft apartments. The gorgeous large industrial windows are the focal point of the apartment. These windows flood the loft with plenty of natural light in the living space and the loft bedroom. The living space is compact but decorated very cozy in neutral colors and a lot of plants. The loft bedroom is also decorated in grey colors and has a lovely view through the large windows. I’m not only in love with the decor of the loft but I also like the architecture of this complex very much. From the front it looks like a big box but the courtyard gives a very playful and cozy atmosphere. A conversion done well by Nyréns!

The loft is an apartment in Amsterdam where a combination of design, art and craft culminate in one inspiring interior design experience. As always everything you see in The Loft can be bought.

Happy new year everyone. I hope you’ve had lovely days with friends & family. 2017 has started but before I’m going to dive into the new year I will look back at 2016. This week you’ll see a compilation of my favourite spaces. Today I’ll show you my favourite loft apartments of 2016, enjoy 🙂
I always love a converted space. And this garage conversion in Amsterdam is one of my favourites. As I mentioned before the decor in this converted garage has changed a little bit, it’s now a little bit lighter and more family friendly. But I couldn’t only post one version of this loft apartment because it’s simply too cool! If you’re curious what the apartment looked like before, just click here. Oh! and the industrial loft is now up for sale so I’d say take your chance if you want to live in one of the nicest neighbourhoods 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.
I remember seeing pictures of this industrial loft in Italy years ago and I instantly fell in love. Now, there are new images of this industrial loft and the design has changed a bit. A good excuse to give you a new tour of this impressive space. The loft belongs to Marco Vido, an Italian artist, who has made his home in this factory building near Lake Como. It’s important for Marco to retain the soul of the building. Therefore he kept the walls and windows in its original form and thereby showing the history of the building. The loft is also used as his workspace and the place is filled with artwork of his own hand, which makes the loft very personal and always changing. Thinking of an industrial loft, this space in Italy is probably what most people envision. It’s absolute perfection.
A former milk factory in The Hague has been transformed into a unique family home. The home belongs to Mary Hessing, editor of Dutch magazine Eigen Huis & Interieur, and her husband Toon Lauwen, curator, journalist and design books editor. The couple bought the former milk factory 12 years ago and together – without the use of an architect – they created a family home over three levels. The large open plan living space can be reached through the converted garage. The black and white tiles can be seen through the entire ground floor including the kitchen where it is combined with sea green Moroccan tiles. The living space has an industrial vibe with the concrete floor and steel frames. To soften this they used pink and green in the decorations. Upstairs, under the exposed beams, there is a large open plan space that serves as the bedroom and playroom of 2 of the children. This converted milk factory In The Netherlands certainly is one of the most unique homes I’ve ever seen.
