Usually I like to highlight spaces that aren’t so magnificent it’s unachievable by regular folk like you and I. But I’m so in love with this Soho loft in NYC with its own indoor pool. And I never thought it was possible. Oh so opulent!
Besides, seeing as how we’re been absent for awhile, what not come back in a big way right?
I chanced upon this amazing loft while surfing and found that a lot of the inspirations could be replicated in a smaller *ahem* more humble home.
High, airy ceilings… beautiful textures on the exposed brick wall… pop of colour by the indigo (my fave colour at the moment!) sofa… there simply isn’t one thing I don’t love about this living space.
View from the other side of the room, and it doesn’t look any less breathtaking. Loving those lights! They’re larger than the ones Serena and I saw at the Lone Pine Penang‘s reception area. Only more to love if you ask me!
Presence of the exposed brick wall adds that warm earthy tone. And I’m loving those antique-y artdeco-esque lights. Check out the view of the indoor swimming pool in the background.
And here it is in full glory. I’ve highlighted how I love to swim in this earlier post. How I would love to do laps in this, knowing I’m doing so while on top of a building that dots the Big Apple’s skyline. This is daydream fodder. Yes it is.
Inspiring use of bricks-steel-wood in one space. There’s something so charming about worn out copper pots!
Cosy entertainment/ living corner overlooking the sprawling outdoor deck. Not so sure about those clock faces. Unless, of course, it can really tell the time. In which case, is cool and unsettling at the same time.
Who could possibly relax with a giant ticking clock there reminding you how time is precious and you should be out there achieving stuff instead of relaxing, right? Right?? Or maybe I’m alone on this one.
The ceiling is quirky and fun.
I don’t know what this room is for, except to indulge in some voyeurism of people swimming in the pool.
The ferns on this outdoor deck reminds me of being on a highland. Instead you turn around and see neon lights and traffic jams. Still a nice green space in the big city.
I’ll marry whoever builds me a library like this. Not a tall order at all.
