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.
A light color palette makes this open concept living area and kitchen feel bright and open. A tobacco stick chandelier delineates a small dining area in the kitchen, and sailboat artwork in the living area serves as a nod to the apartment's coastal location.
