less is much, much more.
oooh. ahhh. that’s pretty much the sounds i uttered when i came across New York-based architect Elizabeth Roberts’ minimalist live-work loft space on brides.com’s home décor files (i do believe they are re-purposing old domino articles under their publisher, condé nast’s umbrella, which is great!).
ms. robert’s loft, which is located in an old soap and wax factory in the West Village, is a study in less is more, and simply quite stunning. how much do you love the contrast of those dark wood floors versus the white beamed ceilings? dramatically beautiful, is it not? i love how she divided her work space from her bedroom alcove, creating privacy using an ikea loft curtain on a hospital track, mounted to the wood ceiling. genius, and such efficient space planning. for a bit more on the space and the general floor plan, visit elizabeth roberts’ website.
