Can you believe that minimalism can be very sophisticated? This prewar loft in NYC’s Greenwich Village was renovated by Raad, and now it’s a minimalist space with a character. Minimalism was accentuated with industrial features, and the main one is slick brick clad. Classic black and white color scheme is mixed with warm-colored wood, brick and leather, an emphasis is made on materials. All the spaces are perfectly stylized including the kids’ room – it’s also very peaceful and minimal, though a chalkboard wall, green lights and a tree house enliven it. What I love about this house is that it’s still full of natural finds like twigs, greenery and branches that make it cozier and more refreshing.
