This client was a single guy with a firm budget, and we embraced the opportunity to create a contemporary bachelor pad that would cater to his lifestyle and allow him to comfortably entertain his friends.
Our first task was to open up the space and make it feel as large as possible. To accomplish this we took down the existing half wall upstairs and my custom metal worker created a banister to match the iron staircase railing. Painting the ceilings black also helped the space feel larger.
We used a black and white scheme with pops of color to brighten it up. We painted all of the walls, added all new lighting, completely remodeled the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen to give the loft a completely new feel.
In the bedroom we chose to use faux wood on the back wall to open it up and make it feel less cave-like. We also installed new carpet to warm up the room. On the bedroom wall we were able to incorporate tapestries and paintings that he has collected on his many travels, to serve as a nice reminder of his journeys around the world.
We started with an old and outdated loft but with the addition of color, textures, and the knocking down of some wall space we were able to give this old space new life.
