Master Bedroom Sitting Area With Fireplace and Large Windows
This sitting area, part of the home's master bedroom, features a glass-front fireplace beneath a large mirror. The space also includes several large windows for ample natural light as well as a great view of the outdoors. A sofa, two chairs and a cream-colored coffee table provide a great spot for comfortable conversation.
Brown Sofa With Gingham Design on Pillows and Lampshade
This neutral living space features a brown sofa with a gingham design on the pillows as well as a lampshade sitting atop a nearby end table. Also included are a sturdy coffee table and a large rug with Greek key design.
Like the other main living spaces in this urban home, the dining room and fireplace area have a whitewashed wood floor with a low-gloss, low-maintenance style that creates a beautiful, fresh and clean look.
The large, geometric coffee table feels fresh and provides ample space for Scandinavian-inspired accents including candles, books and a carved horse from a local Minneapolis shop. Layering a mix of accents in natural tones with black and white creates texture and movement in the seating area while still maintaining a clean, modern aesthetic.
To differentiate between the two spaces, designer Bea Pila outfitted each with its own color palette. Thus, the sitting area features a crisp white, contemporary sofa with pink pillows -- and a pink area rug for good measure.
Traditional Loveseat, Tufted Chairs Create Stylish Sitting Area
Because it's tucked behind the parlor and slightly out of sight from the two-story windows, this sitting area feels much more intimate and so allows for quiet conversations. Guests can choose from a traditional loveseat or two tufted chairs and keep their glass of wine on the acrylic coffee table.
In the renovation of the apartment, designers uncovered exposed brick buried under 6 inches of stucco. Painted white, the brick lightens up the loft and is a bold contrast to the blackened steel elements.
Just off the dining room sits this sleek and sculptural modern fireplace area. “There’s not a lot going on but it’s on purpose,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “It’s a moment of pause as you enter this architecturally stunning house.”
