Living and working in the same place might seem confining at first thought, but this creative couple has come up with a solution. The answer, it seems, lies in making sure that you have enough room to fit both sides of a full life. This living room is proof of concept, as the rugged industrial space is charmingly decorated with modern pieces. A cool counterpoint to the warm wood and brick interior, an oversized rug clearly defines the living area, allowing the remaining space to be put to other uses. Meanwhile, ultra-modern accessories such as the abstract vases on the credenza and the beautifully patterned shades give even more personality to this space.
