Name: RJ & Francis
Location: Los Angeles, California
Modern, masculine and classical are a few words to describe our 1060 sq.ft. open floor plan loft in the heart of downtown LA's art district. The Classical architecture of metropolitan LA peering through our hugely expansive windows becomes the perfect starting point to base our interior aesthetic. We both are in love with the resurgence of this very walkable city life in the middle of such a car-driven (pardon the pun) society. As much as we depend on our cars to get us from point A to point B, the option to walk down the street to run errands or grab a bite at a restaurant is what attracted us to downtown LA and a space like ours.
We each love our own individual spaces but sometimes they can be hard to achieve especially with an open floor plan. The key is to compartmentalize your space into separate areas defined by furniture pieces and by completing them with accessories. In our loft, we were able to create 6 different areas: 1) kitchen/dining, 2) living, 3) office and storage, 4) bedroom, 5) entrance foyer and 6) sitting area.
We are such the hosts -we hold a gathering once a week it seems. So we like to keep our space presentable and welcoming all the time! There isn't an instance when you won't see a guest of ours without a glass of wine in hand. =)
Thanks RJ and Francis!
