Forgoing upper cabinets works so well because of the weight of the ceiling beams which ground the space. And to combat the lack of storage on one wall, the wall opposite features open, counter-to-ceiling shelving. I also adore the small cabinet features such as the slots for cutting boards and dish towels.
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!
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.
Get the laid-back, coastal look:
