Vicente Wolf's Worldy Loft, Garmet District NYC


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!

Really gorgeous! As you know, I too am a huge fan of the all-white space! Also love how the art is displayed on wall shelves! I saw someone else do that recently, and am thinking I might try it, too!

I want to live there... It's full of air and feels so calm. Adore how yellow accents pop up here and there. Simply gorgeous. x

I can't believe people actually live like that! It's beautiful but not very NYC as I am used to seeing it! I need to start hanging out in new circles! :D

I love the naturalism that he brings to the room with his "artifacts from his travels." Great design!

I am totally smitten with the white!

Yep, very clearly a classic signature Vincent Wolf scenario. Bold strokes of subtle tones, framed photos perched on chairs, and a Halston-Bianca Jagger persona setting.

Amazing, very inspirational! It is classic yet modern (if there is such thing). I love everything.

Robin said...

I do love the simplicity of white. Vincents approach is very refreshing... grey is one of my fav colors to use for upholstery and walls (its somehow warm and cool at the same time) and the luscious pops of green add a jolt of life. I must say, I would have to add a couple of rugs, I would stick to the neutral pallete though, but I would need something soft under my feet.

I'm so glad you featured Vicent! I love his work and find his talent intriguing. My mom first introduced his design to me about 8 years ago and we have since been collecting his books and have enjoyed reading about him in several magazines. I recall hearing somewhere that he is actually dyslexic, but this disability has never stopped or discouraged him. Instead, he heavily relies on his keen eye...lovely feature on him, Crystal :)

The pictures on shelves are the main inspiration I'm taking away from these images - what a lovely uncurated look it creates in contrast to the elegant and deliberate furniture placement.

The first time that I Buy Viagra I felt a little uncertain but after use and compare Viagra with Generic Viagra I realized that it's a great product despite the brand or the pharmacy where you can buy the pill. Did you know ? there's a lot of controversy around Viagra, where to find Cheap Viagra . However is the same if you buy Viagra Without Prescription in a physical or Viagra Online Without Prescription via internet
