The two lofts included in this post are comparative in style however each has its own identity. The straightforward, smooth outlines of both homes bring to psyche a moderation, in the event that they are not by any stretch of the imagination moderate. Further uniting the two spaces is the utilization of inside glass dividers that give partition in the middle of rooms and tremendously required protection without really shutting anything in or continuing anything out. Take a look inside these two homes and envision what kind of imaginative personality may be at home here.

The first apartment is is a visualization for a creative family, with an artist and sculptor intending to take up residence. The open floorplan is broken up by interior glass walls, which allow for both like and privacy when necessary. The dark, rich hues are reminiscent of a dreary autumn day, which is surely why the style of this home has been described as “soft brutalism.” An accent wall in the main living area looks like the bark peeling off a dying tree while a burnt orange sofa represents those last falling leaves.
Not every part of the home is quite so dreary, however. Both the bedroom and a conversation nook by the large window in the main living area are rather bright. Though the tones stick to neutral, natural sunlight provides a bit of warmth and levity.

The second house brings in a bit more color and tends towards the warm, natural colors of the earth. For instance, a natural wood covers large swaths of the ceiling and acts as custom shelving a well. Even more appealing to a nature lover is the vertical garden in the living room, bringing the bursts of spring color right into the room, no matter what the actual season.
Playfully matched patterns take this space away from the more brutalist style. Striped wall texture, patterned tile floors and modern white brick all work together to create a bit of warmth without sacrificing the overall sleek look or atmosphere.
