An Old Garage Turned Loft

An Old Garage Turned Loft That's Equal Parts Cozy + Industrial

Equal parts cozy and industrial—that’s hard to pull off.

But somehow this rehabilitated loft that used to be an old garage does a beautiful job of employing an industrial style while still maintaining a homey, inviting and intimate feel thanks to the careful attention given to lighting (creating a soft, warm ambiance), and the oodles of warmth added through a variety of textures, textiles, natural materials and colours.

As with all About a Room posts, if you like this look you can shop the room at the bottom of the post!

This loft in Madrid is loaded with industrial charm — and just so happens to flaunt Pantone’s colour of the year, 2017. I just love how plants and touches of green warm up and bring life to the space.

A Modern Cottage Living Room

What I wouldn’t give to be snuggled on this big cream sofa in this cottage in the archipelago of Vindö, Stockholm. It may be on an island, a stone’s throw from the Baltic sea, but there’s something so comforting about it that makes you feel at home.

About a Bathroom: Mirror Mirror On The Wall

About a Bathroom: Mirror Mirror On The Wall

I’m giving my own bathroom a makeover this week (as I mentioned in this post) and fell in love with the idea of using oodles of mirrors on the walls to serve both form and function. They not only look pretty, but reflect the little light I have in the space and will come in handy when I need to check out my makeup, or see my hair from behind!

This bathroom may be tiny, but it packs a punch and is inspiring my direction for my own loo — look out for the full before and after next week!

So if you love this bathroom like I do, shop the look below:
