“We chose neutral colours of beige, grey, black and brown with pops of blue and orange throughout.” Explains Kari Arendsen, Principle Designer at Intimate Living Interiors.
All of the design choices were made to enhance and accentuate the views of the building. Additionally the designers aimed to elicit the masculine as well as feminine aspects of the exterior architecture and the interior to reflect the lifestyle of the client and his family. There is a beautiful balance of masculine and feminine; masculine in the massive size, boldness, and strength; feminine in its endless delicate details.
On top of the carefully selected color palate, the design included a unique focus on texture in our applications of furnishings, finishings, art, and accessories. Infusing our trademark look of blending the reclaimed with the refined and the unexpected with the essential, we created a space that truly feels like the historic building across the street exists within the residence.
With floor to ceiling windows throughout the loft, the building dominates the exterior views of the space and became the foundation of our design. All of the design choices were made to enhance and accentuate the views of the building. The design works so well because the designers successfully integrated the exterior within the interior and executed the appropriate scale and proportions to balance the space as a whole.
