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!

love the simple material palette and the earthy tone that creates this cozy home interior.

and look at the size of window/doors… natural sunlight definitely makes any space better without much effort needed.

i’ve been eyeing this issac pendant for a while. the minimal look of scandinavian-meets-vintage would be perfect for our second floor hallway. the isaac pendant is part of the Schoolhouse Electric Original, handcrafted in the portland factory.

they also have the solid brass cabinet knobs & drawer pulls handcrafted in the USA from 95% recycled brass. simply beautiful.

a lovely gray & white interior that makes you wonder into the summer dream. i’ve been thinking about the railing with mesh panel for our (next) house, something simple like the one in this image.

although the property itself has a rather rural setting, the overall interior has a pretty relatable style for the urban dwelling… many ideas to steal.

a cozy (and quite spacious- 4 rooms!) apartment with simple white interior and warm wood materials (chairs, tables, floor). my favorite corner is  around the dining table – the two pendant lights are lovely, and here we spotted the stokke highchair again. i can totally see myself using the dining table as work table & reading etc.

also it is true: bertois side chairs just can make any room look instantly modern& chic.
