“Time makes us grow and mature, but we have to always keep our souls playful, no matter how old we are” claim the talents behind tAMINN Design studio. Proving their point, in July 2015, they completed “Maturity Fun”, a redesign of a 165-square-metre apartment in a brand new residential building, in Zhubei, Taiwan. The interior designers carefully abided by the client’s request that the final result hint at industrial style, albeit infused with colour.
Mike and Isa's home is loaded with charm, and there is an inviting vibe that draws you in. Granted it is not particularly bright, but the images detail the different rooms well. I like the punches of color and the play between old and new, vintage and modern. My favorite spot in this home is the dining area with the fabulous wood table and the mix of chairs.....what about you, talk to me!
oh & of course I xo the generous & varied applications #concrete
Large warehouse style lofts can feel overwhelming due to their large size and overly high ceilings but by using innovative design details, MARTINarchitects was able
is this perfection or what...great image!!!
The dining area has it all, a simply beautiful brick wall with fabulous art and a garden wall....yes, true...then there is the furniture and lighting to round it out to fabulous.
"The sitting area in the window features the Cageling Chair suspended from the ceiling so that you can feel like a bird perched up high, swinging comfortably as you enjoy the view."
Check out the bathroom, a very unconventional "trip" and I love the lighting over the tub! The room with the Classic Egg Chair is minimal and quite appealing to my affinity towards "less is more" and not a bore because of the opportunity to feature a chair, wall ....etc.
Take a peek into design collector and dealer Bea Mombaers' charming little bed and breakfast in Knokke, where every piece of furniture and decoration is for sale!
"Owner, design collector and dealer Bea Mombaers, the woman behind Items, an eclectic design store in Knokke, has filled her small and charming hotel with all the furniture she loves and has decorated it according to her own impeccable taste. Whilst concrete floors and grey walls contrast with the rustic exterior of the building, they also serve as the perfect backdrop for the ever-changing collection of objects and artworks inside.

While loosing hours and hours of precious daylight perusing the interwebs for my amazing clients, the new office, and now myself, I stumbled upon this little modern farmhouse and couldn't resist sh...
We bring to you a quirky, cool house. It's location in South Africa is perfection, with it's rural vibe. It is referred to as a farmhouse, but looks like International, MCM architecture from the exterior. The wonderful raw elements we all love are numerous and the decor is easy, semi shabby, vintage. My favorite rooms are the kitchen, the bath, and most of all the office.
If I could offer constructive criticism, I would appreciate more of a mix of furniture with a few key pieces of modern or MCM furniture to change the predominant antique look. (probably explains why my favorite room is the office because of the interesting chairs)
Name: Justin Bauer Location: Boyle Heights; Los Angeles, California Size: 3,500 square feet Years lived in: 2 years; Rented Artist and Creative Director Justin Bauer's industrial live/work space is located on the outskirts of Downtown Los Angeles and is an open-concept lover's dream. While most would be overwhelmed outfitting an interior as large as Justin's self proclaimed "Warehouse Acropolis," artistic sensibilities and an adventurous spirit make it a blank canvas with endless possibilities for creative exploration.
Justin Bauer's space is colorful and as the article says, "ruggedly whimsical..... Imagine a capsized ship, bathed in dreamy natural light and filled with remnants of intergalactic travel and sophisticated social salons of decades past."
"Before Louis Galliussi got his hands on this Ibiza property, it used to be an old farmhouse which was in ruins."
The use of natural and organic elements add a warmth to this exquisitely renovated property. The savy and tasteful use of color tell you about the location and climate of the region. Overall a beautiful home, I hope you enjoy your visit!
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.
This beautiful house is located in the lovely French village of Lalanne-Arque, which is situated within Midi-Pyrénées region in the South of France.
There is something so soothing about the simple palette of this vacation rental. Perhaps the dwelling holds the happy spirits of the horses that were stabled here in this breathtakingly beautiful part of France. I could go on forever about the beauty of the walls, but as you will see, all the raw and retained original features are special. The choice to use vintage, mid century and modern elements completes this awesome space.

This charming home blends texture rich, rustic brick and stone walls, with modern spectacular lighting, and quirky functional art. The color palette is easy and light, except for the beautiful clean, lean, modern look of the black kitchen.

We are bringing to you a charming home full of the personalities of this active, young family. We really enjoy the quirky touches, quality appliances, concrete, wood, essentially the coming together of old and new with a very family friendly vibe.
Let me take you to New York, to Franklin Street in the Tribeca neighborhood. Among the lofts you can find here, here's a shabby chic, rustic and bohemian.
This Tribecca home was built in 1882. It is gifted with charm, abundant light, "joie de vivre", and comfort. How I would love to hang out and listen to music in this wonderful, airy space, or have a meal at the dining table and read the ever changing conversation on the chalk board.
There are some extraordinary columns, beams and pipes that the sparse decor allows to shine.
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....
