A pocket of calm in the middle of the city

 

When approaching the remodel of this small loft apartment, editing was the key.  First step: removing the eighties-style shag carpet and the mirrors that covered every surface.  It was smooth sailing after that: white walls, dark floors, tailored drapery... Throw in an 800-pound steel firewood holder, a glass chandelier, and a favorite pair of leather sling chairs, and the place was ready for late-night cocktails and easy Sunday mornings.
