To create a comfortable space in this loft's living area, designer brought in a velvet chair that begs to be lounged in. The bold, blue of the sofa adds color to the space and is warmed by the neutral, modern sling chair and polished wood slice coffee table. To give definition to the space, a neutral rug lies below the furniture and a gallery wall of black and white photographs keeps this living area from spilling over into the loft's other spaces.

“I love mixing authentic midcentury pieces with reproductions to make a space feel fresh and not too much like a time capsule,” says designer Aletha VanderMaas. “The bold, blue sectional sofa and matching ottoman complement the orange brick wall, which is an original feature in this midcentury modern home. The vintage end tables that flank the sofa give the room a retro vibe—and were both Craigslist finds for less than $50 each. The assortment of graphic pillows makes the space feel more modern and not stuck in the 1960s. And the reproduction Sputnik light fixture is from Practical Props in Los Angeles, and is certainly the focal piece of the entire living room.”
The newly renovated living room features pale blue walls, plush sofas in beige and medium blue and neutral area rug. An upholstered chair and throw pillows in bold patterns help tie it all visually together
