I’ve been obsessing over New York style loft apartments
recently. And with me not moving to New York any time soon, I’ve been seeing
what it would be like to create my own New York inspired loft apartment.
Imagine, high ceilings, super large windows and raw
wooden floors – all with eclectic style mish-mashed furniture. I have actually
seen a flat in Leeds which is pretty much like the room below – a huge window
taking up one wall and exposed brickwork, which I love.
My style in terms of interiors has changed so much in the
last three years. I was always that girl who wanted everything matching. From
cushions to paint to rugs, it all had to co-ordinate with each other. I
remember my first flat, three years ago, was pink and lime green
everything. All from Next and at the time I loved it but now I love the odd
statement piece. Like the stool I became obsessed with in TK Maxx last weekend.
It’s orange and wouldn’t go with anything I owned but I still loved it anyway.
I suppose you have to have the kind of space for this
style of décor, but with wooden floors (like these I spotted over at Oak Floors Online) and cool
detailing like plants, a statement rug and industrial style lighting you could
definitely achieve something of a similar nature.
Oh and before I forget (Erm, how could I?), I won first
place in the Refresh Rather than Relocate competition which means I will
receive £750 to kit out my house when I finally move *cough next month*. I
literally couldn’t be more excited to try and see if I can get some pieces
for my imaginary New York loft.
What do you think to this type of interior? Something
you’d love or something you’d stay away from? As always let me know what you
