White Street Loft is a beautiful 19th century loft designed by owner and principal James Ramsey of Raad Studio, located in Tribeca, an area in Lower Manhattan, New York. The home does not offer a lot of natural light, but makes up for it in the well placed light fixtures. Originally details have been carefully preserved, such as old windows, tin ceilings and exposed brick walls. New finishes were added such as light oak flooring, refreshing the walls with a coat of white paint and modern stainless appliances. Three windows were added to the center of the loft where the apartment was the darkest to allow some natural light to filter into the space. Some custom designed pieces by the designer includes a walnut storage/stereo cabinet, a 300 bottle wine rack crafted from terra cotta drainage pipes and a Beluga whale skeleton designed from a plaster mold that floats over the dining table. The custom kitchen showcases black granite countertops, white subway tile backsplash, and an island covered in white marble and walnut. The end result is a super stylish pad with plenty of tactile materials and stunning decorative accents, enjoy the photo tour!

The interiors of this home are very interesting, with soaring ceilings, an exposed brick wall to separate the kitchen and breakfast nook from the living room and a staircase that leads up to a lofted bedroom. Painted bright white, this small home feels spacious and bright. Hardwood flooring travels throughout, with a warmer hue in the main living spaces and a lighter hue in the bedroom. The bathroom offers a black and white checkered tile pattern on the floor that offsets very well with the subway tiled floor to ceiling walls. The furnishings are mostly in varying shades of black and white with some pops of color for visual interest. A patterned area rug in the living area adds texture, color and warmth to the space. One of the things we love most about this apartment is the playful graphics on the walls, adding to the character of the home.

Garage Loft project is the conversion of an old auto repair shop into an eclectically designed home by BRICKS Amsterdam, located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This home is owned by the designer of BRICKS, James van der Velden who has a creative knack at reviving old properties and giving them a second life. The home is comprised of 1,453 square feet (135 square meters) of living space with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The designer’s vision was to create a home infused with a masculine style, adding a striking visual contrast by intermingling dark with light, old and modern, and layering textures. The most important part of the design scheme was to make space for the many collections of art and decor the designers had picked up over the years. The home features a central atrium space that houses an interior garden, which has been outlined by gridded glass construction. The enclosed space is comprised of only 75 square feet, yet it is spacious enough to grow plants and be connected to the outdoors.
The home features a great mix of vintage finds and re-purposed items as well as inherited pieces. The designer likes to decorate with objects that are slightly generic, such as old lightbulbs piled up into oversized jars.
