The loft got a completely new look in just 1.5 months. The cost was $17K. The designer decided to focus on texture and color. The colors used are very masculine, industrial and bright. Still, the décor is warm and very inviting. As for the furniture, it was mainly custom designed. The pieces have been crafted from recycled parts. The designer opted for this type of materials in order to obtain an industrial look. However, the overall look still needed to be warm and cozy. That problem was solved using tarnished and rusted metals, old ceiling tins and various wood types.

In order to add texture, rugs were added along with accessories and beautiful art pieces. At the end, the loft got a completely new look, inviting, warm and cozy but still masculine. The key was to find the right style, materials and colors.{found on designsponge}.
