A Downtown Loft Apartment Bldg Goes Chic

Designs by: Shoshana Gosselin,

When this downtown Allentown brick warehouse building was converted to loft style apartments my team and I were hired to ‘glam up’ the lobby, two empty model apartments, along with the main hallway, and a community atrium- to help potential tenants visualize how they could live there.  Loft living can be very cool if designed right.  You have high ceilings, great concrete floors and exposed pipes to work with.  But you have to worry that the spaces do not end up looking cold and uninviting.

Our goal was to create a warm, contemporary urban vibe for young hip professionals in this urban area.  We got to work right away.  Once our design plan was approved we had three weeks to complete the project on a budget.  Our paint crew rolled on the colors while SJ and I, in baseball caps and sneakers, purchased, assembled and placed all the furniture and decor.  And with some help from a contractor from heaven, all of our wishes came true (minus the broken mirrors and stressed out moments)!!  Continue Reading

The Uptown model apartment is a rich blend of bold color and shiny finishes.  A place for a young sophisticated executive to host after work happy hours and .  We brought in that red orange, along with deep grays, to play off the shimmering finishes and exposed pipes.  Warm deep colors can bring down the size of tall walls, to make room feel comfortable.  To keep the space from feeling overwhelmed with color we broke it up with some white walls in between.

To take advantage of the main space we floated a good amount of seating in the center of the room, utilizing as much floor space as possible that would other wise be unused.  Using light colored upholstery and a thin metal framed coffee table keeps the loft space feeling open and airy.   The oversized shiny chandelier above not only offers greater brightness when natural is limited, but offers an industrial chic addition, that now compliments the exposed piping.  We also used a buffet as the media center to get more storage out of it.

Framing Artwork in your Bethlehem Apartment

The latest framing trends are quite interesting, and can be easily applied to your Bethlehem apartment.  If you happen to have a nice apartment with high ceilings, which adds up to a lot of wall space, you can stack up a set of like-framed photos or paintings. Arranging vertically on the wall, instead of across its length, can be an eye-catching presentation which will fill up a blank space.

An open floor space in your Bethlehem apartment means walls for hanging artwork are minimal.  Find that desperate spot above an entrance-way is ideal for a large piece of artwork. Make sure the frame is a standout.

Displaying a piece of art between the windows of your Bethlehem apartment is a perfect idea.  Windows draw in light and create their own interest. A great piece of your own photography framed in a contrasting color will create dramatic interest in any room with light such as this one.

If you have a mantle in your Bethlehem apartment, finding the right piece and frame can be a chore.  This space can be easily filled with a large dramatically framed artwork. Idea: set the frame right on the mantle instead of hanging it on the wall, for a cool artistic air.

The Arts in Bethlehem, Pa

When venturing out of my Bethlehem apartment, I discovered that the town of Bethlehem is full of artistic interests.  The first interesting find is the Bethlehem Bach Choir. Founded in 1898, it is the oldest Bach choir in America. Musical America has this quote about the choir: “Having heard the Bethlehem Bach Choir pour its heart into the master’s vocal music, one will never listen to it in quite the same way again.”

The present 95 volunteer members “sing with dedication and enthusiasm of the Bach Choir of a century ago.”  The concerts feature a full professional orchestra and world renowned soloists.  When living in your Bethlehem apartment be sure to check out this fascinating group for musical inspiration.
More information at the website.

Once settled into your Bethlehem apartment, the artist in you will have to visit the Banana Factory.  This dynamic cultural arts center includes three galleries, 28 resident artists, a glass works studio (the only one in area), The Olympus Digital Imaging Center, and the Fowler Arts and Education Center.

The main objective of the Banana Factory is to make the arts accessible to everyone.  The cultural center offers art education classes and programs for area schools.  Explore your creative side by taking one of the 200 plus visual arts classes or workshops offered throughout the year.  A children’s summer camp is also available.

If you are a film fanatic, living in your Bethlehem apartment will be a wondrous move, for the SouthSide Film Festival community is right around the corner.  The Third Thursday Film Club is a communal event designed to bring awareness to independent films.  The screenings are free and usually feature well-crafted documentary works not presented in movie theaters.  Films are usually shown at the Victory Firehouse on Webster Street.  The organization also features an annual art festival and benefit parties, a great excuse to get out of your Bethlehem apartment and join the community.  Visit the website for more info on parties, films, artists, and the 2011 Film Festival.

Are you an amateur or professional photographer?  Why not join the Lehigh Valley Photography Club?  They meet at the Banana Factory, right near your Bethlehem apartment, and offer photo-inspiration assignments to club members.  The intent of the club is for people in the Lehigh Valley community to share their work, meet each other, and discuss photo experiences.
