A Loft Exists in this 21sqm Condo Unit
Interior designer Nikki Audine combined industrial touches and country-inspired details to create a homey and welcoming space that's within the owner's budget
Who would have thought that a loft can fit perfectly in a tight, 21sqm unit? Smart use of space, opting for an open layout, and patiently looking for the right pieces to go into the home all led to a final look that’s simple yet special. “The details and simplicity of the unit make it special and what sets it apart from others is the welcoming feel of a spacious area despite the given layout,” shares interior designer Nikki Audine. When she got this project, the unit was already done, but the owner wasn’t happy with the output.
Given the instructions to make it homey and welcoming, the designer assessed the space’s current layout and the owner’s personality, too. “She likes industrial but finds it too manly and dark. She also has this idea of country and Shabby chic interior, but it’s too feminine for her style. I thought of combining the two styles together so I came up with an industrial country-inspired unit,” shares Nikki. To achieve the look she has envisioned, the designer chose materials wisely. She paired the black flooring with white brick foam walls to create an industrial vibe, then added pop up walls in pastel colors and faux plants as décor to complete the country feel. Collaborating and choosing what to prioritize helped Nikki and the owner finish the project even with a limited budget.
