Here's a sneak peak of the progress from the NYC loft inspired model condominium I'm currently working on. It's definitely looking more like a condo. The furniture and appliances should arrive relatively soon. I'm also looking forward to accessorize the space and show you the final result. It's going to make a big difference.When I think of a loft, I think of brick wall. It's one the main features I wanted for this space. The tall entrance wall was the perfect location for these brick veneers. They give the space a nice texture and warmth. These artificial bricks are from a company called Speka. I selected the VersaBrick- Urbain. There are two wall sconces on that wall (you can see one of them in the top right photo). Once the lights are on, it will further emphasize the texture.
The walls in the guest bedroom and the master bedroom have been painted the same color, but the sun exposure gives them a different look. I've planned something special for the feature wall in each room. I'm looking forward to show it to you once it's ready.
For the kitchen, we're only missing the appliances and accessories. I love the pendant lights above the counter. (I'll take more detailed pictures next time). They are large glass bulbs that don't take up a lot of visual space and distract from the kitchen.
The backsplash is really fun.
Above is a view of the future dining area. I chose a simple pendant light. I wish I could have used the same as the ones above the counter in the kitchen but it was unfortunately not possible. Still looks good so far.
Did you notice that the baseboards are painted the same color as the wall? This was to create a more modern look. When you paint the baseboard the same color as the wall, they essentially disappear and help create various architectural 3D shapes.
I'm happy with the bathroom progress so far as well. It's fairly neutral right now (just the way I like it) and the accessories will give it personality. Since it's an entry level condo, the counter is a laminate which eliminates the possibility of an under-mount sink. Using a light colored laminate minimizes the contrast between the sink and the counter, so they still read as one uniform block.
