Loft Apartment Love

feature loft of the dayMy breath is taken away featuring this glass-floored loft apartment room found at The Lux Home.  The weird perception created is the long glass table that sits before the sofa on the glass floor (the candlesticks and candelabra are sitting on it). Took some focus, and a slight headache, to figure this contemporary interior space out. Love the slate color and white.

Glass Interior Walls

Glass interior walls are a wonderful way to open up a small space. I’m fascinated with the idea. Of course, this isn’t an option with supporting walls, but other interior wall, such as the wall in Brooklyn apartment hallway makes the space open and refreshing.

Not in need of bedroom privacy? Perfect for a single person or a couple.

Glass walls partially enclose this kitchen space. It still looks open, but the walls will block out some of the kitchen noises in this apartment.

Vintage look tub in glass walled bathing area. Bikes and guitars optional.

And who wouldn’t love this open glass wall in a top floor apartment space? Love the cool Shabby Chic feel in the decor. A bit of a fish-bowl feel, but who would see you way up there?
