Ashley's Soft Industrial Artist Loft — House Tour

Ashley's Soft Industrial Artist Loft — House Tour | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
Name: Ashley Jones, Co-owner & Co-founder of DimePiece LA Location: Downtown Fashion District, Los Angeles, California Size: 1,800 square feet Years lived in: 6 months; rented The first House Tour I ever contributed to Apartment Therapy, four years ago, was Ashley's 500 square foot studio in Miracle Mile. She had a budding new fashion company and was working hard to get her brand off the ground. Fast forward a few years, and she's moved into this incredible downtown loft, just two blocks from her company's office. Her home is a livable artist gallery. Its high pitched ceilings and lofted nooks offer plenty of room to entertain and show off her fun art collection.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

In Ashley's own words, "My Style: Modern/soft industrial with a little midcentury modern mixed in."

I like the surprises in the space and the outside of the box way of thinking.

Water Cleaning Station Conversion-France

Water Cleaning Station Conversion-France | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it

Villefranche Sur Mer, France on the French Riviera

The water cleaning station dates back to the early 1900's and was in use until the 1970's. The exposed pipework is evident all around the home and the giant metal artifacts contrast sharply with the elegance of the contemporary furnishings.

Thanks to maha231 facebook!

ParadigmGallery's insight:

This is a very interesting conversion of a space with extreme industrial elements. It is anything but "raw" even the huge pipes have a beautiful sculptural appearance in this setting. The water cleaning station dates back to the early 1900's and was in use until the 1970's. The exposed pipework is evident all around the home and the giant metal artifacts contrast sharply with the elegance of the contemporary furnishings. The modern furnishings and wonderful minimal use of accessories make this space quite memorable. Check out the bathroom...probably my favorite room. Designer: Bernadette Jacques

Scandinavian Industrial Interior| Woonblog my industrial interior | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
ParadigmGallery's insight:

In this post we see a Scandinavian interpretation in the use of raw and industrial design elements combined with a classic Scandinavian aesthetic.The balance of old, new, white and rust is lovely and allows the raw materials such as the concrete and reclaimed wood an opportunity to star. The utilization of some very cool thrift finds like the file cabinets, storage unit, and vintage ironing board, really add character.

Enjoy.....

Aircon House– a DIY project to beat them all

Aircon House– a DIY project to beat them all | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
How on earth do you go about converting all 6,000 square foot of a one-time industrial building into a habitable living space? John Crace finds out
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Aircon House started out as a rocking-horse factory in the 19th century, and over the years has seen life as a stage set factory, a builders' merchants and an air-conditioning fittings factory (hence its name).

The owners, Eric Guibert and Robin Pembrooke, simply wanted more space. They certainly got it – 6,000 square feet of it.

 

Aircon House is charming. In this article you will see the beginning conversion efforts, but they had big plans for their home.

ParadigmGallery's insight:

This former flour mill has an ecclectic decor that really works for me. There are high end finishes utilized in the bathroom and kitchen providing a modern appearance but the lovely textures of the mill still abound. As always artful touches take any room to the next level and reveal the personalities of the owners.

Patrice Gerber's curator insight, July 20, 2013 1:01 PM

This is what I would call a genuine loft. An old industrial space transformed - by the way rather delicately in this case - into a living space.
