ah. exposed brick walls. certainly there are technical/maintenance aspects to be considered,  (if not whitewashed); and for the rentals, exposed brick walls is often viewed as an real estate ruse to bring some “design” intent to the property (not to say these faux exposed brick wall panels). so here you go, there are actually two types of exposed brick walls included in this property. what do you feel about the exposed brick wall?

the layout of the apartment can be challenging as the unit is at the ground floor next to the street, and, the organization of the rooms  is a linear arrangement from hallway, living room to bedroom/kitchen/bathroom. yet these black frames successfully defined each space without interrupting the visual openness.

truly a thoughtfully curated interior that is rich in characters (love these ceiling bulbs) yet remains its simplicity in color & material palette. this gotta be one of the dream bachelor pad i’d fancy!

and yeah… the ‘new york loft style’ is probably the second next to the exposed brick wall as an overused term in the interior design field. but you get what i mean.

happy sunday!

talking about “minimal luxury” style. this property from stockholm seems has the best neighbors including shops like tous les jours, dr. mat and superfront(my on-going fancy).

the light wood floor and charcoal gray/gray tone makes a elegant and sophisticated style that is classic and chic. i know, i am just using all the flattering words. and yes, i can move in here without changing anything.

leather details accentuated the medium gray cabinets and added a right amount of warmness to this marble-gray combination. oh wait, did i see the marble countertop and back splash?

the charcoal gray hex floor tile and glass shower panel. and more marble counter top for the laundry set. no, we will never get tired of having marble counter top.

a vintage-inspired interior from fantastic frank for our sunday inspiration. couple interesting details in this apartment : hexagonal marble tile for kitchen countertop; painted black wood floor; file cabinet as bed side table (remember i was just talking about the use of file cabinet in this post?).

the old wood shelving, mismatched vintage porcelain diningware and patterned fabric makes a beautiful wabi-sabi home.

a beautiful renovation in fort green, brooklyn. the townhouse includes two separate duplex apartments for the two families who purchased the building together. the images shown here is from the upper duplex designed by elizabeth robers design.

i have to admit i am so sold by the combination of wood countertop and marble countertop island in the kitchen, the white oak wood plank floor, and that lovely balcony.
