10 Amazing Lofts From Around The World

10 amazing lofts from around the world

I’ve always been in love with the idea of owning a loft apartment. In fact, if I had to describe my ultimate dream home it would probably be along the lines of a New York or Paris warehouse conversion complete with a rooftop terrace, huge windows and a spiral staircase leading to a mezzanine library (if you’re going to dream you gotta dream big, right?). I came across a few gorgeous lofts whilst on Pinterest yesterday (my favorite form of procrastination) so I thought I’d share my top ten favorite with you.

Do you love loft apartments as much as I do? What does your dream home look like?

1. Madrid

I love the mix between the white floors and walls and the mid-century furniture in this loft. The mezzanine floor is gorgeous and makes the whole space feel bright and airy. The owners also have some stunning (if controversial) photography on their walls.

2. Budapest

What originally attracted me to this Hungarian loft was the fact that it’s an attic build out. However, it’s not only the layout that’s unique in this property as it’s full of interesting details such as a wine display wall, huge chandeliers and an open bath in the bedroom. The whole apartment feels sexy and mysterious.

3. San Francisco

This San Francisco loft is pretty amazing. It’s so big there’s a basketball hoop and a tree in the living room! The rooftop terrace also includes a spa pool with views over San Francisco. Imagine all the parties you could have in this house…

4. Paris

As I’ve mentioned, I love Parisian style lofts and this one pretty much ticks all the boxes for me. It has a great workshop feel, an incredible spiral staircase and  it even has an inner courtyard. The decor is a touch too bohemian for me but I guess I could always change that once I move in ; )

5. Sao Paolo

This loft in Brazil feels very masculine but in a way I kind of dig that. It was designed for a bachelor which makes perfect sense as I’m definitely getting a Mr Big vibe from it. I really like the black and white color palette and the kitchen design is very cool.

6. Melbourne

I like that this loft feels like a designer’s home but that it’s not too stuffy. It’s colorful and playful and feels lived-in thanks to all the colorful touches. It also features some beautiful pieces by Le Corbusier and a cute terrace.

7. New York

This Manhattan loft is kind of crazy but man, look at that view! I also love how full of art the house is and the fact that the owners created a space that truly reflected their personality. In many ways it feels like a really cool New York art gallery.

8. Singapore

I really like all the textures in this apartment from the walls to the staircase to the furniture. It has a little bit of a 60’s/70’s feel to it and everything looks like it’s been custom made which makes it feel very special.

9. Cape town

This is a great example of a church renovation. The furniture provides a nice contrast with the white walls and the owners managed to keep the place looking serene by keeping things simple. The floors are also gorgeous.

10. Toronto

This loft is a bit smaller than the others on this list but it definitely has a lot of personality. I like the mix between Gothic and Industrial and there are many great details such as the record player and the touches of steel everywhere.
