When Soren Rose Studio started to renovate this loft in the building of a former paper factory in TriBeCa, it hadn’t been touched for at least 50 years. One of the main advantages of the space was the large windows on three sides that allow rooms to literally bathe in the daylight. The interiors feature the ideal mix of some of the loft style most popular components, such as brick walls, metal structures, wood and marble. Great project!
Sometimes Scandinavian interiors can be too gray and cold, but not this wonderful apartment in Gothenburg. Here Swedish designers added some warmth to the white-and-gray palette: light wood, brown and powder toned accessories and textiles. Red brick wall in the kitchen perfectly fits the interiors and looks very organic. Some black and gold details, as well as textiles with a geometric print, were also added to complete this stylish interior. Great home!
The design of this luxury townhouse in a prestigious area of London has absorbed the best traditions of royal houses and modern design trends. A tribute to the popular loft style can be found in the lower living room, where there is a whole wall of exposed brick. The picture with the image of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol (I have no doubt that this is an original work) steeply takes out of the ordinary to the World of magic and art. Tribute to royal blood is given here in the design of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Classic calming interiors, space and scale, light and the highest quality of materials – all in light colors (egg shell, elephant bone, milk). Large sofas and armchairs complement the living rooms, here you can place an entire royal family. Elizabeth would definitely like it!
At the beginning of the 20th century there was a belt factory but now it is one of the most stylish spaces in Chicago. SOHO House Chicago features a hotel, several bars and restaurants, a spa, mini cinema, farm market and a rooftop pool. It’s loft in its best: brick walls, concrete ceiling, open cables, forged and leather furniture. However, some elegant elements like magnificent crystal chandeliers, furniture of pastel shades and many different accessories give the interiors special touch, soften it, but emphasizes its best aspects. Have a look at the pool with the terrace on the roof – an ideal place for summer parties. A great example of a cool industrial building reconstruction!
If you like to stay in rental apartments rather than in hotels while traveling and if you are a fan of Scandinavian style, then you’ll love this small but lovely rental flat t in the Polish city of Lodz. The rooms here are completely white, only the sofa and the old stove in the living room dilutes the sterile whiteness. As it is a rental apartment, the layout is smart and functional: there are a separate bedroom and a small kitchen despite the total area of only 35 sqm. Such an airy home!
What does a successful businessman with a great sense of style and who rarely is at home need of his dwelling? Of course, this should be an open and spacious space, a little brutal and raw, with brick walls and industrial touches, perhaps, with a large living room and a small kitchen.

Many designers around the world try to do create various loft spaces, but the truth is that real lofts are always in New York, the city where this design trend arose. It’s all about one of a kind window views over skyscrapers, which are also part of the interior, unique special approach to decorating, and, of course, the former industrial premises with their own unmatched charm. American lofts can not be compared to anything else. Here we have a cool loft in the heart of Manhattan from Drew McGukin!

Although this loft in Atlanta has a lot of usual industrial features that every loft should have, we cannot but admit some important personal decor elements that make this house unique. First of all, of course, it’s about wall decor: large family framed photos by the dinner table, classic portraits in the massive golden frames in the kitchen, unexpected wallpaper with feathers, art mirrors all over the house. This home is so interesting to explore!
Designer Katerina Lashmanova tried hard replanning this young family apartment in Moscow as it is located in old Stalin-area building with a poor original plan.
