When we speak of New York City and stylish lofts, the image that often comes to thoughts is of trendy SoHo-style spaces and beautiful modern hubs that are
"Architect Andrew Franz transformed an old caviar warehouse originally constructed in 1884 into an inviting and distinctive loft. Embracing the industrial past of the building while ushering in contemporary components." via Decor Advisor
This beautiful home has a feeling of urban, relaxed, sophistication. It has high ceilings and great light. I particularly appreciate the choices of furniture in the dining room, it is warm and inviting while having everything necessary for a dining space and no excess clutter....
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.
" 1880’s warehouse turned live-work studio for a fine arts photographer and family respects its industrial origins while focusing squarely on adaptable design. With hyper-efficient dovetailed energy & envelope systems the project achieved a HERS rating of 34 and infiltration rate of 1.97 ACH50."
If you believe that cozy feeling with industrial design don't go together then you should see this family home. This is a A double-fronted Edwardian house in north London. The distressed finish is...
This fabulous home has cool vignettes everywhere you look. My personal favs are the bathroom and master bedroom. The classic furniture from the mid-century is blended with vintage and antique Victorian touches, all coming together cohesively. Modern elements add comfort and functionality to the kitchen and bath. Don't miss the room with the pool table, "the floor is a patchwork album covers, printed on to vinyl and covered in resin. The Seventies vibe is enhanced with orange walls and hippie-luxe cushions."
Name: Dan PriceLocation: Ukrainian Village, Chicago, IllinoisSize: 920 square feetYears lived in: 4 years, rentedUpon entering Dan Price’s apartment in Chicago's North-Westside neighborhood of the Ukrainian Village, your first impression is of an abundance of textures: bare bricks, modified vintage-hybrid furniture, stainless steel appliances, granite kitchen counters, colorful cookware, old desks with meticulously ordered business records, contemporary artwork, repurposed found objects, and the traces of an older apartment layout that can be seen in the pattern of beams on the wooden floor.
We love Dan's unique point of view! The bathroom has a strong element of whimsy expressed through great ideas, textures and colors. The kitchen is all about efficiency and strong colors and details.
We are smitten with several of his accessories, especially the masks, primitive heads, and carved wooden fish....
"Eclectic Fusion", home of Dirk Jan Kinet "Refreshing and inspiring to see walls painted in a dramatic way like in this crazy beautiful and historic Mexican home of Dirk Jan Kinet. It's all in the nuance textures on the walls. It's rich and exudes a sense of romance. I just love the spirit of this home. Kinda like a "I don't give a ...., I'm gonna do what I want" attitude. Some of my favorite homes usually have that sensibility. I love how he mixes old and new in chaotic and unusual ways, yet it's harmonious and thoughtful."

This incredible project consisted of a seismic upgrade and restoration of a heritage building in Vancouver, British Columbia’s historic Gastown District, and a loft interior design project. …
Architect and designer Omer Arbel ...the goal was to “just let the space be itself.”

One is constantly aware, here, of contemporary design as a sort of complement to the original warehouse. Look up and you will see a network of original Douglas fir beams, lit up to dramatic effect by a set of skylights....
Vancouver, British Columbia’s historic Gastown District,
What's your view at interior design with strong industrial elements? If you think its utilitarian nature cannot be tamed, you should revise your opinion. Loft 002 in Toronto, Canada, is a proof that rawness of old workshops and warehouses converted into living spaces can be concealed with the right decor. The loft used to look very unappealing,…
We like this loft but love the bedroom....
The bedroom is our favorite room in this great industrial loft. The rug is the perfect introduction of color and texture and totally connects the room from floor to ceiling. The rug also speaks to the texture in the cement above, check out the rest of the home.
This space already was a local stables, a bomb shelter and a print shop. It took only eight months to turn it into a modern living space where industrial and
"The interior features a lot of elements from old times that have been manually restored. Thanks to large windows in metal frames there is a lot of natural light. This loft is a nice example that even raw materials can be used to create a warm, comfortable and cozy living space." DigsDigs

Name: Metropolis Factory Location: The Junction, Toronto Size: 7,000 square feet Years occupied: 15 months The creative energy inside Metropolis Factory is a living, breathing beast. It’s difficult to know exactly how to describe this wild creature, as it serves a multitude of purposes. First, it’s the workshop and showroom for Marco Pecota's innovative industrial furniture designs and Phil Freire’s extraordinary one-of-a-kind salvaged, repurposed pieces. It also hosts a library of design-related reading materials for their custom clients to browse while brainstorming fresh takes on lovingly weathered concepts.
Yes, I will agree, this visual visit to Metropolis Factory is a view of a "living, breathing beast" and that is a compliment. If you love to thrift, or just enjoy a very cool, colorful, 7,000 square foot space chock full of fabulous finds, this is for you.....
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.
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.
one of my dreams is to finally visit cuba. i've has this old book about havana homes forever and every once in a while i get it out and fantasize about making
"sfgirlbybay", I hear you loud and clear, I too have the dream of finally visiting Cuba. For me it is in my genes, my father completely gave his heart to Cuba, as a young man. He and his three brothers had a lighting fixture store in Havana, however our family remained in Miami where I grew up. The store closed in the 50's, but dad held on to his desire to return and did so two times in his early nineties. I have a fondness for everything Cuban having gone to high school in Miami's Little Havana and joining into the culture through friends.
Enjoy this lovely addition to "raw and real interior design" with its grace,textures and colors that take us on a visit to Cuba.

I quite like the original elements used in the home, floors, walls doors, and so on. I think the bedroom with the timbered, lofty ceiling is quite spectacular. It feels like a blend of ideas and spaces and is quite serene with the minimal interior, which then highlights the materials and textures.
The designer Paola Navone oversaw the transformation of this 200-year old building from an old silk farm to a magnificent white loft complete with a mixture of industrial and vintage styles. Let’s travel together to this dream loft in Spello, Italy.

Once an abandoned confectionary factory warehouse, now the original red brick industrial facade gives no hint to what lies inside, the interior is an unexpected oasis.

Flodeau is a design blog hosted by French interior designer Florence Deau.
Visit the home of Nadine and Matthieu, a duplex apartment in the Canal Saint Martin quarter (10th arrondissement of the Paris).
This home has many raw elements, combined with a very creative and refined taste level.
When Matthieu was interviewed by Flodeau he gave a wonderful response to the question:
What you like least in interior design today ?
The whole ‘trendy-trends’ phenomenon that floats above decoration and interior design – it seems a lot of people improvise themselves as professional decorators or interior designers. Most of them lack in originality and merely duplicate what’s fashionable. There is no spirit or soul in what they offer. To me, interiors have to tell stories.
...and I also appreciate this:
Your best decoration advice ?
Do things for yourself and not for the others. Don’t try to copycat interior design magazines. At the end of the day, you’ll never feel better than in a home that reflects who you are !!
When Atlanta based ad agency The Jones Group decided it was time to revamp their image and headquarters, they turned to designer Caryn Grossman of CG Creative Interiors to complete the task. With two early 1900's warehouses now in her hands and limitless possibilities,
Caryn Grossman's carefully drafted program called for the application of only sustainable materials and low-impact fabrication and construction, and what resulted was a striking environment ready to stir creativity within the new office.
Grossman worked closely with People of Resource another Atlanta firm also focused on using local and sustainable materials. Together they created furnishings and finishings made from Kirei Board, a reclaimed waste product of the sorghum industry, and Chroma, a renewable material from 3-form, which gave a colorful kick to the custom desks, conference tables, and brainstorming areas.
