Light floods into the main living area of this New York loft apartment through 7 big windows. The rug, designed by Aronsons Floor Covering, was intended to add a feature that would tone in with the other colours featured in the rest of the house, as well as the earthiness of all the natural wood.
The dining area nods to the European and Australian roots of the owners – the Hans Wegner wishbone chairs to Denmark: the Aboriginal artwork to Australia. Striking pendant lights are hung low to define the dining zone in an open-plan space.
To define the ‘homework’ zone in this boys’ bedroom, a skull and crossbones has been painted to create a feature wall. Modular storage units have been installed to keep the space clear from toys and other clutter.
The bright colours that characterise the rest of the apartment are banished from the bedroom, with muted and calming shades creating a peaceful feel. The abstract print above the bed, by artist Selina Woolcott-Forbes, was used as the starting point, and works to pull the rest of this cosy look together.
