For such interiors, old warehouses or converted old factory buildings are needed. So this London apartment in the former industrial building has many of their loft space elements and here it was completely justified. We would also like to admit some authentic features of this stylish home: juicy colorful furniture in the living room, a grand piano in the bedroom, metal medieval doors. Beautiful project!
