Although the tight living room of Briana and Buzz's Brooklyn loft only has 10-by-12-feet of useable space, it seems open, airy and spacious thanks to a great space plan and a plethora of space saving solutions — some simply practical, others decorative.
Music-Inspired Teen Bedroom With Built-In Underbed Shelving
This teen bedroom features all-over music memorabilia, including a hanging acoustic guitar and bedside vintage record player. A Union Jack comforter is draped over the reclaimed wood bed, while built-in underbed shelving provides the perfect spot for displaying books.
White Urban Bathroom With Green Shower and Floating Vanity
For this small, loft-style powder room, HGTV Star contestant Crisermy Mercado took a minimalist approach and used a neutral color scheme with splashes of bright hues here and there. The floating vanity helps increase square footage and makes the space appear sleeker.
This fireplace is clad in new bricks and features a custom designed trim and screen. The industrial chandelier over the dining table works perfectly to balance out the off center fireplace in this modern Park Slope apartment.The baseboard and window sills were replaced with wood reclaimed from an old Brooklyn building for a one-of-a-kind look.
Minimalism is key in this white dining space. A simple rug gives the dining area a sense of separation in the open-plan urban home. Contemporary art adds a few colorful top notes to warm the space and infuse it with life.
Loft Bathroom With Brown Tile Ceiling and Marble Partition
A marble tub and shower are separated by a marble half wall for privacy while maintaining the open loft feel. Natural light from windows above reflects off the glazed tile ceiling, providing light for the bathroom area.
Above Lily's crib hangs her name made from basic white letters dressed up with ballet slipper pink ribbon. This is an excellent way to personalize a nursery with affordable, easy-to-find materials. A similar look can be achieved with metallic house letters or numbers found at leading home improvement stores.
