#3 – Michael and Mindy’s Urban Modern
Name: Michael and Mindy
Location: Chicago, IL
Size & Type: 608 sq ft – 1 bedroom heavy timber loft in a 1920’s shoe factory, rented
Favorite resource: Craigslist, DWR, Room and Board, and our degrees in Architecture
Our design approach combines simple clean lines with classic mid century modern pieces. The loft is a work in progress and we continue to unveil our true style piece by piece. As obsessive organizers, we have achieved our aesthetic by eliminating unsightly clutter.
We took advantage of the extra space in our bedroom closet to stash away two computers, two printers, a router, scanner and supplies. The result is a relaxing, minimalist bedroom which doubles as an office and keeps our work behind closed doors. Accents of bold paint make a dramatic impact on our rental space.
