A Gorgeous Loft &Trine Thorsen Photograpy

This gorgeous loft was photographed by Scandinavian
photographer Trine Thorsen. The loft is spacious and
entirely gorgeous with bright light and purple/plum
accents.

I've Totally fallen for the gorgeous dark
wood floors. How cool is that? The cement
gives the loft a more industrial feel and I
like how open and bright it is.

A gorgeous platform tatami bed (tatami are
tightly woven matts that the Japanese use
for flooring and for their beds. I just love the
rich, deep magenta color on the wallpaper.

Great shot of the bed using the mirror.

Here's another bedroom in the loft. As you
can see, this area uses a lighter flooring that
has a hint of grey in it.


I love mercury glass and those are a pair
of gorgeous mercury glass candle sticks.


My favorite part of this area is the very
natural and organic looking table. It's
got a rustic style to it and just gorgeous.


Danish Modern

If any of you fancy the Scandinavian sense
of design, you may be interested in some
of these books. Danish modern design blends
incredibly well with contemporary, modern and
organic designs.

Lots of light, bright and white is another

I find it boring, but that's probably because I'm a Scandinavian myself, and I don't really see the style evolving at all. What I can appreciate is the light and airy feel to it. :)

It's a really beautiful space - I love the touches of purple throughout.

Rachel said...

Wow - it looks like two totally different spaces! I wonder if the people who live there are roommates??
I kind of like the lighter floors vs. the darker ones. And I love that table too! It's such a nice warm contrast to all the pale colors around it.

I love Scandanavian design. Even when it has layers it never looks fussy. Must be in the water or carried down with the good looks.
I actually follow a dozen different blogs from Scandanavia & as different as some are they still always read peaceful.

I'm so glad I finally get to see what the Kathleen Hill Cluster Lamp looks like in a room.

I love how the walls match the pillows in the room. Super cute.
