A small lounge doubles as a guest room in this SoHo New York apartment. Bold artwork and accents give the neutral space an element of surprise, while a silver-plated tray with bar accessories adds style to entertaining guests.
A canopy of soothing green bamboo leaves hangs over an outdoor shower area with hardwood ipe flooring. A Buddha sculpture enhances this outdoor area's calming ambiance, creating a tranquil escape from the surrounding bustle of New York City's Soho district.
For this loft apartment in New York City's SoHo neighborhood, nine small rooms were combined to create this incredibly open, bright space. Designers worked hard to protect the original architecture and history of the building, salvaging materials like the brick, timber and steel and repurposing them throughout the home.
The family’s TV room is a more casual version of the living room, borrowing elements like the painterly patterned rug and the fabric-wrapped lighting (a favorite from Soho). The designers utilized the family’s existing sectional sofa and stunning wall art, but added in new elements to bring the whole room together.
Because New York City has fire regulations specifying the amount of SYNLawn artificial grass an occupant may use, the landscapers made an efficient choice by placing a simple children's play area atop a bed of the grassy stand-in. Children can play in this Soho backyard while adults enjoy a beautiful day outside in the pergola only a few feet away.
A distinctive part of homeowner Holley Jaakkola's young, cool design style is how she incorporates modern brights and design with antiquarian objects and elements from the natural world as in this upstairs hallway/landing. Blowfish wallpaper and an assortment of shells, feathers and accessories inspired by nature's flora and fauna make this home feel like a cross between a hip Soho boutique and a natural history museum.
