When designer duo Natalie Younger and Sayre Ziskin called me up to shoot some portfolio work for them I was excited to see their take on a masculine opulent bachelor pad. Mark has lived in his 1 bedroom loft for just over a year, but has never had the time to really delve into design. He hired Younger & Ziskin to help him create a lavish, dark and sophisticated home.

Mark lives in an eco-friendly urban loft condo at the TLofts in Los Angeles. Everything about this building is minimalist and monochromatic. When he hired his designers his requests were to bring in a layered, warm and sexy vibe to each corner of the home. Merging a bit of Hollywood Regency with some elements of Asian decor, this home was given a complete makeover.

I really love their use of gold everywhere, and the dark walls that tone down the blazing natural light. Not only did they custom design elements like the dining table (which has built in cabinets in the base) but they also were not afraid to embrace the dim lighting.

Seeing the before and afters will give you a pretty good idea of we can easily translate our ideas right into home.

Thanks Mark!
