5 key things your loft needs

ARTICLE Erin Reilly

  1. TEXTILES

Use various textiles like rugs, throws, cushions, upholstery – even wood and chrome – to make your loft feel warm, inviting and homely. Mixed textiles help with acoustics too.

  1. GREEN FINGERS

Forget that you live in the heart of the city by bringing the outdoors in. Install a herb wall or mini garden in the kitchen, and place tall indoor planters in the corners and under the windows.

  1. FLOORING

Stay true to the loft’s industrial heritage by polishing existing concrete floors, or make the space feel warmer by laying down wooden floors.

  1. LIGHT AND BRIGHT

Make the most of the natural light by positioning your main living area near big windows. Paint your interior walls off-white to allow for greater light reflectivity (but minimal glare).
