MOORE-SILVEIRA LOFT NoHo District, New York Partner-in-Charge: David Sherman Contractor: Boyce Renovations Completed: 2005 Project Team: Sebastian Kaempf A loft for a pair of creative directors was renovated for the upcoming birth of their first child. After many years of living in the loft in the classic sense, with pervasive living space, they had decided to create actual rooms. This involved sub-dividing the space to incorporate two bedrooms, and adding a new bathroom. The process promised to touch every corner of the loft, so it was decided to embark on a full renovation, including a new kitchen and laundry room. The newly-renovated space incorporates a pallette of cherry wood components set off by a neutral white background. Kitchen cabinets and a variety of built-in shelf systems were organized as foreground elements, with the white paint taking on several sheens depending on whether it was newly-constructed interior partitions, or pre-existing plaster walls, ceilings and beams. The built-in dining booth afforded a casual place for family dining adjacent to the kitchen, with the formal dining table remaining a part of the living space.

This vibrant Angela Adams rug gives this nursery just the right amount of retro-modern.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to The New Look Of Nurseries
Here a bold gesture is created by painting one wall a bright golden yellow. A graphic Angela Adams rug is an equally strong element, with all the other pieces in the room playing supporting roles. The mid century modern inspired rocker is a far cry from the typical nursery glider, and the remaining pieces provide needed function with simple style.

This room in a New York loft shows how to share space with style. The low twin bed allows for mom and dad to crash, especially during those very hands-on early weeks. The room is free of clutter but not empty--the board books lined on the back wall create a casual and structured look. I myself have lined the base of my toddler's room with board books and she and I both love the convenience and the look.

Another way to include just a little bit of yellow is to paint only one wall in the room with this great color. Here the yellow wall is brought out a bit by the bits of yellow in the rug.
