Yellow Purple Tribeca Loft

We recently found this fun Tribeca loft featured in the amazing Est magazine. The homeowners are from Australia, but the angular purple and yellow motifs make it look as though this could be Prince's Manhattan play space. 

Modern Manhattan Loft

So as to not compete with the expressive colors everywhere, lighting fixtures are subdued and utilitarian, with architect style desk lamps and track lighting usurping form for function. Sometimes the best approach when decorating modern rooms is to opt for simple but contemporary ceiling lights and lamps.  

Loft Kitchen Design

In the kitchen, we love how glass and stainless steel cupboards and upscale looking island pendant lights play into the modern yet chic and functional vibe. 

But most of all, we just love the color scheme, which purportedly takes its inspiration from the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia:

The best thing about the scheme? It may be located in New York, but for a fan of the purple and gold Los Angeles Lakers (like yours truly), it could be right at home on the West coast too. So pick your favorite colors (or your team's) and started redecorating.
