This incredible loft space has been designed by Daleet Spector Design in Marina Del Rey, California. With an eclectic, industrial, modern design style, the home features charming details with high ceilings and a bold color palette. The flooring throughout the main living spaces is polished concrete.
The rolling island has been custom designed to fit the space. The unique light fixture hanging from above is from Restoration Hardware.
The unique wallpaper featured in this bathroom is refreshing and playful, its hand silkscreened using water based inks on recycled paper by artist Geoff McFetridge for Pottock.
Grey Loft is the brilliant reconstruction of an existing attic apartment in Ostrovského, Prague, Czech Republic by design studio OOOOX. The designers slightly modified the 1,097 square foot (102 square meters) layout, especially in the bathroom where they connected the glazing to the bedroom. The center box with bathroom and toilet is separated distinctly by colored dark pearl paint. The other spaces throughout the apartment are bright in color with various hues of gray in accents walls and furnishings, bleached wood floors, industrial light fixtures and a stainless steel center island in the kitchen.

We just received photos from one of our reader’s home’s, Natasha of Fat Shack Vintage, an online retailer of unique vintage and industrial light fixtures based out of Australia. Her home is now officially one of our favorites that we have posted here on 1 Kindesign. Designed by Natasha and her husband, the dwelling is chalk full of character and charm and the exterior is just as intriguing as the interior. We could go on and on about how fabulous this home is, but instead we will let Natasha take it away from here:
“We have quite an unusually designed warehouse style home in Prahran, Melbourne, Australia. It is 240 square meters of internal space spread across three levels with two outdoor entertaining areas. The locals call it the ‘Quilted House’ as the outside is pressed aluminum and looks like a quilt has been thrown over the front of the house. We recently had renovations done to the bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a renowned street artist named Reka put up a mural on the side wall (Reka is a part of the group ‘Ever Fresh‘ who had a residency last year at the ACMI gallery) and the piece and house attracts quite a bit of attention and photographs!
I like to think that the internal decor is equally as interesting and would describe our decorating style as vintage eclectic featuring an Asian twist with a pinch of industrial. The photos describe it far better than I ever could though. We have a love of all things vintage and have been collecting pieces in our travels for quite some time. My husband and I own and operate our own business called Fat Shack Vintage, which is an online retailer of vintage industrial styled lighting and home decor.
Fat Shack Vintage also sells a selection of genuine vintage furniture which is how we have accumulated a lot of the pieces in the home. It’s always hard to say no when you come across a really interesting vintage find! Between decorating our home and the office I’m surprised there is actually anything ever left to sell!”
What do you think of Natasha’s incredible home, please leave comments below, we would love to hear what you think!

Located in the Cornlofts, a former industrial building, in Prague´s quarter Karlin, this loft has been reconstructed by B2 Architecture for the residential use based on the design of Baumschlager Eberle Architekten from Wien. The design for a Live/ Work unit eschews conventional loft typologies in order to maximize square footage and natural light. Portions of the original floor plate are removed while new glass plates are inserted into a central void. As a result, this formal gesture increases overall square footage to a total of 2,475 square feet (230 square meters) while simultaneously providing unexpected views and natural light throughout. The main goal of the loft´s redesign was to bring back the original industrial look balanced with the modern design and materials.
The living space is furnished with the vintage/modern custom-made furniture completed with the pixeled piano mosaic and other music related elements referring to the owner’s profession.
The lowest level contains the entrance space with custom-made closet, owner’s music studio, nursery and guestroom with bathroom and utility areas.
The second level has a public character. On the one side there is an open office with a roof window and view over a sculpted staircase connecting the three levels of the loft. On the other side, there´s a living and entertaining space vertically connected by partially glassed floor plate of the third level.
Besides the entertaining space, the third level also includes the master bedroom with a bath and two dressing rooms.
A modern industrial retreat in Eugene, Oregon placed amongst the trees at the top of a hilltop overlooking the city below and coastal mountain ranges in the distance. The sloping site and extensive conservation zones were quite challenging. The design and build of this exquisite hilltop house is by Jordan Iverson Signature Homes. The siding on the exterior facade of this contemporary home is a standing seam roofing metal. The interior of this spectacular home is urban modern design that exudes a warm ambiance.
The fabulous living room sofa is called the “Spencer Loft Bi-Sectional” from Gus* Modern. The custom lighting design hanging on the left has been custom designed by the designer, Jordan Iverson, who plans on selling a few of his lighting designs later this year on Etsy. His steel guy fabricated the bar and brackets and he sourced the electrical cord, and metal cage and finished it with a large Edison style bulb.
The High Park Chair is also from Gus* Modern.
Clad on the dining room wall is reclaimed barnwood from a barn that was being taken down in Silverton, Oregon built in the 1920′s. It was purchased through Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage. The wood has been fastened to the wall with standard casing nails. No adhesives were used. The key detail before it was fastened was to paint the entire wall black as there are various knots and imperfections in the reclaimed wood. The wood was not sanded, otherwise it would lose its rugged look.
This rustic modern industrial designed kitchen features metallic glazed porcelain tile backsplash, Caesarstone quartz counters in haze, reclaimed barnwood floating shelves, an island detail, 3-Form Eco-Resin cabinet panel inserts, Rustic Hickory custom built cabinets with a charcoal stain and engineered birch flooring.
The pendants above the kitchen island are Starburst pendants made by ET2 Lighting.
The designer was inspired to blend all the materials together and tie them back into the surrounding rooms in the home. He wanted to create an urban space, but also one that felt comfortable and solid. Materials that are easy maintenance and long lasting were also important.
The Kraus modern farmhouse style sink was selected to tie in with other industrial modern elements in the kitchen and throughout the home. The designer wanted the exposed stainless farmhouse style sink to be one of the main focal points of the space.
These porcelain floor tiles are called “Modern Limestone” in a steel grey color. A matte finish was used on the floor and a polished finish for the tub and backsplash.
The majority of the light fixtures throughout the home came from ET2 Lighting, including these fabulous fixtures above the bathroom vanity. The countertop material is quartz, made by Pental Quartz and the color is Sparkling Grey. According to the designer, the countertop looks amazing in person with the flecks of metal sparkling from the lighting.

This stunning Mill Valley, California home was built in 1910, originally one of the 2,500 libraries that had been built by businessman Andrew Carnegie. When a new library was built in the area 50 years later, this structure became a private residence, with several years of remodels the home fell into disrepair. A local family of four purchased this home in 2008, with none of the original interior intact, only a single bookcase was left in the living room. They called upon Bay Area design firm Union Studio along with custom cabinet and woodworking company, The Last Inch, to redesign the space and preserve what was left of the remaining structure while giving a modern update.
The family that purchased the home is very artist, working in the design field, and wished to create a big and bold interior that would encourage creativity. Solid wide-plank white oak in a matte commercial finish is featured throughout the interior spaces. With exposed brick, steel and wood elements, this fabulous home has an industrial feel yet radiates a warm and cozy ambiance.
The long space allowed for a 16-foot island, perfect for family cooking and entertaining.
The refrigerator doors are cladded hot-rolled steel.
The shape of the skylight mimics the island below, allowing plenty of natural light to penetrate the space, yet still leaving the original roof trusses intact. The block of open cabinetry next to the island also lets light in, as well as separating the staircase from the kitchen area.
A modular cooktop from Gaggenau has downdraft vents, so a hood does not have to hang above. Instead, dramatic black linen pendants draw attention to the space’s high ceilings.
The shelves in the adjacent dining space replaced windows that had been removed during a previous remodel. Although windows were considered, the view was so unpleasant that shelving was installed instead. This change still maintains the structure’s historic exterior.

This stunning property, spotted on Skeppsholmen, is characterized by light and space is nestled high on a sloping hillside in a private location in Österlen, Sweden. The home features incredible views of the open sea and rolling countryside. The residence consists of 5,382 square feet (500 square meters) of living space spread over a variety of amazing rooms. The austere exterior with horizontal white panels, galvanized metal roof and large glass windows brings nature inside. The home has been designed with both practical and stylish features, with slate flooring creating a calming atmosphere as well as beautiful white oiled oak wood.
The fully equipped kitchen is accessed through a light and airy passageway with a pantry and wine room. The kitchen is open to the spacious dining area and features 6-foot high ceilings and stylish industrial designed lighting. There is also a beautiful atrium and an adjoining living room and lounge area with fireplace, gray plank floors and whitewashed walls with an exit to a terrace. Connected to the lounge is a salon with generous windows and access to another terrace. An office and multi-level studio offer breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding beautiful countryside. The studio exits to the patio and garden.
There are five spacious bedrooms and two tastefully decorated bathrooms, with the master bedroom adjacent to a stunning Moroccan style bathroom.
Externally, this magnificent property offers several patios, gardens and the quiet atrium in contrast to the open countryside. The beautiful scenery and the private mode create a unique atmosphere.
The basement of a building in Budapest, Hungary, spotted on Casa Vogue, has been transformed into an industrial loft occupying a living area of 2,152 square feet (200 square meters). With a certain bucolic air and many masculine touches the environment is well-distributed and integrated in an intimate yet dynamic and comfortable setting. The home has been decorated by stylist Beatrix Torma, the property draws attention for its architecture with its large windows on all side, which brings clarity to the interiors. The kitchen is attached to the living room on one side and on the other is a winery, dining room and library.
The environments are divided by the punctual distribution of furnishings. The existence of wood throughout the dwellings helps to soften the industrial tone. A mix of materials of aluminum, brass, copper, cement creates a dialogue with somewhat lighter materials of glass, wood ceiling, the cement wall in the dining room and bedroom and the black lacquer wall of arched windows where there is a fireplace.
