We ran across this spacious and tastefully-decorated contemporary loft, the result of a design collaboration between the architecture firm Donovan Hill and the apartment’s owner. The project is in fact a conversion of a wool store located in Tenerife and displays an interesting mix of modern design, industrial elements and outdoor areas. Wooden beams suggest the separation of the kitchen, dining and living room, but all these three zones exist within a single, continuous space. A vivid black and red carpet contrasts the futuristic white sofa, making this part of the room become the focal point of the entire loft. The kitchen is minimalist, all equipped and features built-in storage space. A wooden table with transparent chairs for six is an open invite to guests. Enjoy the details offered by this contemporary loft and don’t forget to give us your feedback below!
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
