    Default A loft grows up



    Gaining a big space with an industrial flavor is the main reason the homeowners went to the trouble of converting a former eyeglass factory. So the goal was to enhance the original aluminum window casings, brick walls, terrazzo floor, beams—all on view in the living area—that recall the space’s industrial past





    In addition to a unified appearance from every angle, the high-gloss, one-wall white kitchen—open to the adjacent dining and living areas—also has a clean look thanks to some clever enclosed-storage ideas




    Deep drawers, which Lopergolo likes for storing everything from bread to blenders, also organize cleaning products in a U-shaped under-sink pullout. The drawer below it holds trash and recycling bins. Lopergolo was also able to squeeze in 6 extra inches of elbow room between the new island and the wall counter. "Before, 36 inches was too tight," she says. "But 42 inches allows two people to work comfortably back to back."

    love that coffee table & those dining room chairs. i also like how much light the home gets & that little desk nook. but, that's about it.

    i agree that it's too sterile...especially that kitchen!

    I like the bathroom sink and the green towels. The kitchen looks like an IKEA kitchen.

    I see several Ikea items and agree the kitchen must be Ikea.

    Too lifeless...does not evoke a feeling of warmth or comfort. I would not feel too comfortable in this place.

    I like most of it conceptually but the kitchen would be the first thing to change.

    The white is too present and too white. It all looks sterile.

    lol it is an ikea kitchen. my condo looks exactly like this w these exact same cupboards. the colour is not as dead white as it looks here but it is certainly not a look for everyone. i only rent the place but i have to admit, i love the clean look of modern decorating.
