It's safe to say that a loft-type condo is an ideal space in the city. You can use the ground floor to entertain friends, while the loft is perfect for relaxing, reading, and spending some quiet time. Since the owner dreamt of living in New York, he designed the space with the Big Apple in mind. Wooden touches complement the raw finish on the walls, while personal collections give the space a distinct, homey vibe.

The result is a delightful home away from home, with cute accessories that seem to encourage you to forget your worries and have a good time.
