Home tour- An artful Manhattan loft!

A family of four lives in an artful urban life after combining two modest-size apartments. To avoid clutter and to create a composed, meditative home with two young children in residence, this home is equipped with well-organized storage space. Most shelves reach to the ceilings, lots of ladders are used, closets are built out of forgotten corners, appliances are tucked away inside illuminated cabinets and kids' stuffs are hidden and closed off with a set of opaque-glass doors when things get messy. Curious how they did it? Let's check out this gorgeous modern home and find out.













Do you like this modern home? To me, this minimalist home is very gorgeous and refreshing although if it was up to me, I would throw in splashes of color, some wood elements and something old just to mix things up to add warmth and make the space feels cozier. Nevertheless, I still love this home particularly the dining room and the bathroom. What are your thoughts about this home? Do you find it too stark and cold? Would you mind living in a home like this? Any favorite room or element you are particularly drawn to?

  2. The lighting exposure they get is really great and I like some some rooms, especially the living room with the plant art. On the other hand, they like a lot of horizontal and vertical lines and I think the addition of curved lines would be welcome.

  3. In theory I would love to live like this. In reality I might not be able to. I will still throw in a bit of something "off" after a while

  6. Like it? Nah, I love it! A really intriguing place - yes it is minimalist but there are lots of interesting things which stop it being cold.

    That green leaf sculpture in the living room is fantastic!
