Genius Manhattan Loft


Last weekend, I was flipping through the September issue of Martha Stewart Living, when I stumbled upon the RIDICULOUSLY charming Manhattan loft.

The lucky owners are winemaker Marco Pasanella, former Blueprint editor Rebecca Robertson and their son Luca. Their house, in a former shipbuilders' warehouse built in 1839, has playful touches, like blue patterned wallpaper and multi-colored kitchen chairs. It almost seems like a children's book, with a giant playroom and stove-that-looks-illustrated.

Don't you want to go over there and drink wine with them?

The main thing I love is that for once a loft doesn't look to sterile - the confident use of pattern and soft details is so unexpected but boy does it work! Thanks for your gorgeous comments over at mine too - what an honour!

morfose said...

There are some amazing pieces here and there, but overall it seems way too busy.
Just my humble opinion, anyway.

Nothing Elegant said...

Lovely! I love the repetition of blues and golds throughout.

Raina said...

That's all kinds of wonderful, thanks for sharing it. I surely miss me some Blueprint.

Joe Spyder said...

.vanessa said...

carolina bleu said...

lovely

Cynthia said...

The interesting part, besides the fantastic use of a very simple color scheme, is that the look is chic, creative but doesn't look horribly expensive.
You can easily, with a bit of creativity and minimum skills, reproduce it or create something very similar with inexpensive materials and recycled furniture.
That is my kind of design.

the 2nd to last bedroom shot...is perfection! I love everything about that room. The height of the bed with the simple bedding on top. Amazing artwork above and of course the perfectly aligned photos on the wall. It just makes you want to curl up with a great book and warm cup of tea.
