London has been an inspiring architectural design scene to which New Zealand-born, London-based architect William Tozer recently added a fascinating conversion of an industrial space into a wood and concrete-defined contemporary loft apartment. The exposed concrete ceiling is reminiscent of the loft’s former use as an industrial factory and shelters a collection of spaces adapted to the needs of a modern lifestyle. This Loft in London provokes two design style to work together in order to shape an inspiring interior design. Books and artworks were given a special place, decorating the long hallway and occupying a space behind a sliding wood panel hiding a comfy sofa. A built-in desk and shelves compose a home office area at the end of this hallway. The kitchen, dining space and living area are part of an open space, hinting towards its industrial heritage with the help of details like the open shelves or range hoods pipework. The bedroom with en-suite bathroom carves the same minimalist industrial style, topping off the overall appearance. Overlooking the city’s skyline, a terrace wraps around two sides of the apartment, connecting the loft to its surroundings and exposing the surrounding urban environment.
Emerald is a color that has consistently topped trend charts in recent times and its jewel-toned glamor is perfect for bedrooms with Hollywood Regency style. Malachite pattern and color is also a smart choice if you love that luxurious look in the bedroom while eclectic bedrooms drenched in green goodness steal the show with sheer audacity and flair.
If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom, then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior. Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding, accessories, nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing. Those who feel that an accent wall in green or décor are not your thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy, eco-friendly and healthy choice to turn to that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.
