This home is breathtaking. It is a place where adults live, which I adore. On the checklists of efficiency, beauty and problem solving, David and Im rock all three. If there is any criticism it’s that this home feels like it is only for David and Im. Perhaps this is the point of a perfect space, but it leaves me feeling slightly uninvited, if that makes any sense.

David & Im was clever,sexy,imaginative [no ikea…better to go to home depot and do it yourself.] industrial, sleek, organic.
It IS the coolest,smallest apt and there was no competition for me…miles ahead.

Loft spaces with an industrial look usually strike me as cool spaces to attend a party in, but I wouldn’t want to live there. This unit is an exception and it gets my vote for managing an airy and peaceful appearance in a single small space.
Obviously highly edited in regard to furnishings and color, it looks pure but not austere. The big curtain effectively hides the primary storage space to cut down on visual clutter. The space is so restrained that the low wall of blocks in various earth tones actually stands out as a focal point. I want to read books and drink tea in this space on a long rainy day.
