2. Denver. The word "loft" has been tossed around a lot in real estate for the past decade or so, as brand new high-rises full of "loft apartments" pop up. But a true loft is in a repurposed building like this brick beauty.
Lanteri mixes vintage finds and bargains from CB2 and Urban Outfitters to create eye-popping combinations of texture and colors.

4. Atlanta. We first met Houzz Contributor Brian Patrick Flynn, a.k.a. Decor Demon, when he showed us his loft in the city of Atlanta. Flynn has since moved to a house, but he made the most of the loft experience.
Flynn used an "F" from a T.G.I. Friday's sign, and a blown-up image of his parents as art that matched the scale of the space.
Flynn also rallied the residents to come together and make the most of their formerly neglected roofdeck.
5. Cincinnati. Mark Twain once said, "When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it's always twenty years behind the times."
Not fair, not fair! The Queen City is buzzing with creative energy and is a well-kept secret. We took a tour of graphic artist Maya Drozdz's loft before her Seed Bombs business blew up.
20 years behind? Drozdz had embraced gray walls long before it became such a white-hot trend. As for the rest of the city, it has plenty of iconic buildings of its own, from fabulous examples of Art Deco to some serious recent starchitecture.
With just about every top architect represented from the University of Cincinnati campus, down the hill through downtown and across the river to Covington, Kentucky. Take that, Twain!
