Design Spotlight: Loft Style Warmth

Let's face it, lofts can be tricky. Sure, they offer an abundance of space and architectural intrigue, but that blank canvas can quickly morph into a daunting expanse of...well, blankness. Today, we're taking a peek into the inspiring transformation of a client's once-ordinary loft, where industrial magic and pops of color have breathed new life into the space.

The centerpiece of this stunning metamorphosis? Our very own industrial style bookcases, crafted with a cool contrast of metal painted pipes and warm golden oak stained shelves. These units aren't just storage solutions; they're conversation starters, design anchors, and purveyors of a unique, lived-in aesthetic.

Breaking Away from the Beige Box

Gone are the days of generic furniture and drab colors. ReRoom Interior Decor, based in Sharon, Massachusetts, embraced the industrial modern vibe with accents of bold color and rich textures. The effect is undeniably striking, transforming the space from a blank canvas into a canvas of character.

Bookcases as the Building Blocks of Beauty

Our industrial bookcases, with a blend of industrial metal and smooth solid wood, fit seamlessly into this transformed space. They play a starring role, not just providing much-needed storage for the client's extensive book collection, but also creating a focal point along the wall. ReRoom shared this, "The biggest splurge was a custom build industrial sectional bookcase with unexpected copper pipe finish, that echoes throughout the room in additional copper details (curtain rods, accent side table)."

The team expertly drops vibrant pops of color throughout the space, keeping things playful and personal. A gorgeous blue sofa adds a calming tone, while pops of gold and red in throw pillows and curtains tie the whole look together. ReRoom adds, "Next, enters a colorful rug that looks like impressionist painting and combines all the colors used in the room."
