I first saw this home featured on a HGTV Top 10 Living Rooms Count Down - it was love at first site! I kicked myself at the time because I didn't catch the name of the designer and couldn't go google him/her to find the images.
But one day while visiting Alek's blog, I read a post she did on Vicente Wolf. And voila' - there was the home I had seen and fallen in love with months ago! Don't you love it when that happens? Thanks Alek :)
It turns out that the home is actually Vicente's NYC loft. It's filled with gorgeous artifacts he's collected over the years from his world travels. And all that photography you see? It's his work too - he's a self taught-designer and self-taught photographer (my kind of guy!). His use of wall shelves and chairs as a means of displaying his work is genius. It gives the photography that showcased art gallery feel and provides an easy way to rotate work in and out with time.
I don't think it'll come as a surprise to all of you to know that my heart fills up with joy at the sight of all this white! As I've mentioned here before, in a world where there is so much noise and chaos around us, it's nice to come home to a color palette of white to evoke feelings of cleanliness, purity, and serenity. Vicente adds just the right amounts of warmth to keep the space inviting through the warm wood elements and pops of taupe, beige, and live plants.
And of course, how could you not love the diagonal placement of this bed?! (It reminds me a lot of this one) Isn't it nice to get away from all the right angles sometimes? It's like a breathe of fresh air!
So, what do you think? Are you with me on this one? Isn't it a beautiful space? I think it's in the number 1 spot for my own apartment re-do inspiration.
Psst, he also has a blog!
