Colorful Tuscan Loft
Customizing this historic school house loft to showcase the homeowners own personal style was a fun and welcomed challenge. The building had already been beautifully restored and adaptively reused as condominiums. The client loved the airy open feel and architectural features, but wanted something more upscale and not as neutral. After spending time in the mediterranean, she fell in love with the bright saturated colors, refined design and overall lifestyle. Passionate about good wine, charcuterie and entertaining, we knew the kitchen would be at the helm of the design direction.
We went with a primary color scheme to create some visual excitement and warm up the classic Santorini blue cement tiles for the backsplash. Rich and earthy red, orange and clay tones provided a bold backdrop for the darker furnishings and cabinets. We updated all lighting to brighter, more efficient fixtures, most of which also highlight artwork or serve as sculptural interest in the rooms. Bold purple graphic wallcovering transforms the study into a super hip reading or record listening nook. Each room has its own character and flow unique to its purpose. All of the finishes, although very different, still create a cohesive look and feel.
