    Default Shipbuilders’ warehouse turned family loft

    The owners are winemaker Marco Pasanella and Rebecca Robertson who are parents to 3 year old Lucas. The loft is a converted shipbuilders’ warehouse built in 1839, which they have morphed into a casual, almost whimsical space. Forgoing the typical modern route, the couple has chosen lush textiles in a bright blue and white pattern for curtains. The kitchen is equally fun, featuring multi-colored chairs in bold primary hues. One thing is for sure: it’s nice to see a family oriented industrial space, something we think more people should consider

    Looks quite merry! A delightful place-I like what they have done.

    I don't like the chipped, white brick wall, or some of the decor. Love the space though.

    Those cutains can go in the tacky decor thread.

    The space is great but the white is blinding. They have "color" in the beams
    and all, but it's not enough.

    i like several elements to it...love the stove, the painted brick walls in the kitchen & that bed frame especially.

    i recently picked up a turquoise dansk kobenstyle dutch oven just like the one on that stove. i love it.

    i like it a lot.
    not crazy about the chairs and table in the kitchen and i'd change a few things in the living room but other than that, i think it's a great space.

    Nice, but I think they need to incorporate some colors other than blue and white.

    I like it very much - a nice modest home for a lovely family, methinks.
