This loft apartment is in an early 20th century brick and concrete building which was converted from a warehouse and manufacturing facility into condo’s in the 1990’s. When the owners bought the place it feautured “a rather jarring color palette of red, green and blue along with yellowish bamboo”. The clients wanted to create a space that was open feeling, with lots of storage, room to entertain large groups, and a warm and sophisticated color palette. The talented team at Jessica Helgerson Interior Design transformed the space by creating visual interest and contrast by painting the beams a dark earthy grey and the walls a soft yet luminous shade of white. A variety of textiles were introduced, including a hand-stitched felt headboard to the master bedroom, a vintage Moroccan rug and heavy woven fabrics were used to upholster the custom sofa and cushions. . The large scale timber dining table and coffee table add earthiness and warmth to the space. Vintage Eames DKW leather, steel, and wood chairs add pattern and interest and pair well with the dark steel and blown-glass chandelier. A custom designed console table made from antique Chinese doors softens the effect of the large TV while hiding the accessories.
We love: the raw earthiness of the space, fantastic entertainment unit idea and the eames chairs.
