Loft Space Design Board

We had a fun night of presenting our design boards in class tonight. I'm exhausted, so I'll try to let the board speak for itself.

My "client" is a single businessman living in Manhattan. The space serves a multitude of functions for him: living, eating/dining, entry, and office/library.

My inspiration came from this Christopher Farr Cloth fabric:

I was also inspired by this space out of Martha Stewart Living:

And here is how I translated it into a design board for my client:

(This is a scanned image of what was actually on my board)
All of my sources are available if you have any questions about them let me know. The tan print fabric is Kravet that I would use for throw pillows, the striped inspiration fabric is Christopher Farr Cloth, the other two print fabrics are Bleecker in spark (curtains) and Betwixt in bear (throw pillows) both by Schumacher. The grey velvet (love) is Kravet and the pinky-peachy velvet is Schumacher. The grey velvet would be used as cushions on the built-in banquette seating. 

Let me know if you have any feedback about the board or if you have any questions. This was a fun board to do since it was very different than anything I had done or thought of before - a challenge if you will.

Did I mention I'm exhausted?


  1. Holly, this looks fabulous, love the colors and pieces you have chosen for this sophisticated bachelor pad. This bachelor's gal could move in without too many changes don't you think?!


  2. That looks great. I like the mix of the traditional and modern. A gray velvet banquette sounds amazing! I really like the light you chose too.

  3. LOVE this mood board, and am completely and totally in love with your inspiration fabric. Gorgeous!

  4. Gorgeous mood board! That's going to be an incredible room.

    PS - Thanks for stopping by my blog recently! So glad to have found yours! :)

  5. The Brooklyn Bridge artwork is really great.

  6. What a great job you did! Love the table and your fabric & lighting choices! I was wondering, were you given a specific assignment in your class? I think it's overwhelming when your client has no opinion :) so many choices!

  7. It looks great Holly. Were you not required to put a furniture layout on the board? I was just thinking that it's a lot without a layout right there to refer to. You must be exhausted- it's hard enough to do this without doing a blog and having a family as well! Keep up the good work- I look forward to your posts :)

  8. Great job! You should be so proud of yourself! I especially like all the art.

  9. nice idea.. thanks for posting.
