Before & After

Our client, a financial analyst living in Greenwich Village, tasked Decor Aid with designing his newly purchased loft space. A contemporary, industrial space was the request, and we even managed to include features that would facilitate entertaining.

From the outset, we knew that the space’s more appealing features would also be our biggest design hurdles. This loft has an entirely open-layout plan, and so we had to distinguish distinct areas within the home without disrupting the apartment’s ceiling-height windows.

Initially, our client requested that we refinish space’s original flooring, as serval sections had acquired minor damage. However, we saw the beauty in these rustic details, as re-sanding floors is costly and the bulk of the floor was in a top-notch state. So we created a layout that could cover the floor’s imperfections, while exposing the more beautiful sections.

To start, we gave the walls a new paint job. A greyed taupe was chosen and accented with a white trim.

To distinguish the bedroom, we sourced a large bookshelf, and placed it adjacent to the largest gap between windows. Industrial-chic furniture pieces, including several salvaged-wood items, mesh with the space’s existing pieces.

After establishing the space’s layout, we began to incorporate finishing touches. By custom-fabricating window treatments and sourcing large pieces of wall art, we highlighted the apartment’s soaring ceilings. A varied collection of patterned textiles give this industrial-chic space a refined finish.
