Getting rid of the interior walls in this city apartment gives the home an airy lightness and shows off the amazing urban setting from all over. The dining room has a spectacular skyline backdrop framed by exposed brick and a crisp black window trim.
This bedroom demonstrates more of the openness of the loft with a blackened steel window wall that looks into the ensuite bathroom. Here, and throughout the home, original details like exposed brick, steel and wide plank wood floors are gracefully combined with contemporary furnishings.
A brilliant mix of materials gives this kitchen a contemporary blended style. The exposed duct work and brick wall lend a warehouse-loft vibe, while the shiny black wall tile, glass light fixtures and stainless-steel appliance add an industrial touch. Natural solid-surface countertops and wood cabinetry provide a natural element.
A four-poster canopy bed with a faux mink duvet cover give this master bedroom a touch of Hollywood glam. The blue-gray accent wall complements the exposed brick of the industrial loft, while a mirrored glass dresser and tufted bench brighten the space.

The studio's ducts and copper pipes exposed to save on budget and a new concrete floor was poured on top of the old floor. New 1" LED lights were added to the front of the meeting lounge space.

Geometric wallpaper mimics the tone of the exposed brick in this contemporary living room. To work around a bend in the wall, a small table hides behind the low-lung sofa, maximizing space and offering storage. A coffee table made from reclaimed wood is a rustic accent on the white shag rug.
Jessica Helgerson uses Daltile in a 3 x 6 white brick and chooses a thin-set rather than a thicker setting bed to cover the walls in this bathroom. For added detailing, she drops the ceiling around the exposed-leg vanity to create a little niche. The floor is a limestone hexagon pattern that adds visual interest.
Natural light bounces off the polished white surfaces of this transitional kitchen design. Painted exposed ceiling beams blend with the color while adding a subtle texture. A modern bubble light fixture hangs over the white marble island counter lined with simple and stylish wood barstools. A white painted brick wall and stainless steel range hood incorporate a classic kitchen feel.
In the conference room, a large concrete table adds texture to the space. Around it, rest six natural saddle cab arm chairs that add warmth to the space, but also provide a comfortable place for designers and clients to discuss ideas and close deals. Decorating the walls of this space, two 17th Century Portuguese paintings hang proudly on the white wall, while a 20th Century portrait adorns the exposed brick.
Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri were excited to see that there was a fireplace behind the old walls of this living room in the Rao home.

Designers wanted to create a bright, stylish main space in this home in which the original features were complemented by the modern updates, so they made use of an open floor plan to highlight the home's original exposed brick and hardwood floor that run throughout the main story of the house. Without walls to block off light, the myriad windows throughout the main space allow natural light into the room, creating that chic, stylish bright look the homeowners wanted.
As seen on HGTV's Cousins on Call, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri have exposed the brick in the Raos' living room, drawing a unique contrast between the original part of the house and the updated, lighter section. They knocked out the wall that used to separate the entryway from the living room, which gave the space a ton of extra natural light. The cousins then installed track lighting to help give the space a more open, inviting feel. With plenty of seating and shelving storage, this updated family room is a great place for relaxing.
As seen on Home Town, the Rowell residence has been fully renovated by Ben and Erin Napier. The existing kitchen was closed off and dark. By removing the wall between the kitchen and dining and exposing the brick chimney, this room flows better with the rest of the house and adds character to the overall space. The improved cabinet layout also provides ample storage space to the kitchen.
Micah Stansell’s office is actually in the house next door. The aesthetic is a complete departure from that of the family home, however it’s the perfect blank canvas for him to create and edit film and exhibitions. The upper level white space is flooded with brightness via skylights and character-rich with a vaulted ceiling, wood beams and original exposed brick columns. The entire left side of the room is decked with storage cabinets concealed by white glass doors that blend into the walls. This space is a super thoughtful minimalist dream and ideal for any creative.
To give the family more space, Chip and Joanna removed the wall that separated the kitchen and dining rooms, creating an open floor plan for the homeowners. In the dining room, exposed beams and brick create a rustic design that is carried out through the dining room.

Natural light from surrounding windows give the space plenty of light, which, with the help of the patterned rug, make the space feel bright and inviting. As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
