For those who are fortunate enough to experience a generously-sized loft, this one may be seen as the best way to maintain style and refinement.
Nestled in Soho, New York, this loft’s signature is its cream hues and sensation of open space. Of course, the size of the place is a major reason behind this feeling, though these two elements certainly contribute to making that hotel-like dream home. The living room, which has been combined with the kitchen, is an extensive lounging area with a plush dark carpet and a number of couches. The furniture, asides from those that form part of the walls, are low-leveled to allow the eyes to gaze across the room without obstacles. The curtain and windows here are of a pale white, though they are illuminated by the soft yellow lights that have been built to form a part of the ceiling.
The kitchen, though conjoined with the living room, has its two walls that allows for seclusion and intimacy. Small table decorations such as plant pots serve as comical accents that do not take away from the integrity of the space. A separate living room area holds a large screen TV and a fireplace, which is a thoughtful touch as within a loft, noise can easily travel to every corner.
The bedrooms may not even look like bedrooms when one first enters, especially the master bedroom with its glorious city view and a pair of chairs surrounding a coffee table. The smaller bedroom is more classic, with a black ceiling-high shelf and a modest bed. In both, the matte, wooden floor has been covered by a rich rug. In the master bedroom specifically, nothing obstructs the higher levels of the walls—even the lights hang down from the ceiling as low as possible, and the lack of wall decorations keeps decorations under control.
And of course, we have an enviable bathroom with large windows that give way to a properly walled view. Here, marble has been used in a way that resembles the wooden flooring—the streaks are horizontal and of a light, earthy color. Clear-cut, sharp edges are the bathroom’s strength, as it frames the mirrors, showers and even sinks.
For those who seek an urban, luxury experience living in a loft, this may be the dream. Combing the hotel-feel with intimacy and coziness, this Soho loft is fit for the urban man or woman who has enough of a hectic work and social life to desire the sensation of returning home to a luxury suite every evening.
