Dashing Urban Loft Uses Contrasting Textures to Create Coherent Style

It is definitely the season to embrace industrial style, and it has been that way for a while now! As homeowners turn t the adaptive reuse of old structures in order to beat the urban space congestion, this is a style that would only go up the trends chart in the years to come. This gorgeous urban loft in Kansas City is another case in the point, as it uses exposed brick walls, duct pipes and a wonderful array of diverse textures to create a unique, elegant and functional modern home. Conjured up and brought to life by Shaping Your Space, it is these contrasting finishes that give the loft its distinct aura.

The open plan living area is all about a seamless fusion of contemporary sensibilities and industrial aesthetics, as the lovely brick walls provide a captivating backdrop from both the living zone and the kitchen. Area rugs and the clever arrangement of furniture is used to delineate individual spaces, while the overall style links one with the other. Edison bulb lighting in the kitchen and bold black pendants further accentuate the industrial heritage of the loft, while the trim dining space has more of a contemporary appeal, thanks to its light gray backdrop.

A contemporary fireplace becomes the focal point of the conversation zone with twin leather chairs and a simple coffee table, even as large windows bring in a flood of natural light. It is fun accessories, throw pillows and eclectic art pieces that bring color and creativity to this exquisite loft where style meets substance.
