A Lesson in Contrast

Let's start this week with some awesome interior inspiration. What I love most about this amazing Vancouver loft is the mix of materials and textures. Architect, Omer Arbel, took on this massive upgrade and restoration project, breathing new life into the heritage building.

A central courtyard allows light into the space. The existing shell remains bringing beautiful texture and a strong contrast to the smooth clean lines of the modern elements.

Rough concrete, polished concrete, wood, metal, and glass all work beautifully together, softened by textiles such as that gorgeous blue velvet sofa, throws and hanging fabric panels. This is definitely a brilliant example of how such contrasts can create such cohesion.
