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.
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.
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:
Morgan Purple Accent Chair, Jonathan Adler Nickel Antwerp Desk Lamp, Yellow Spindle Round Accent Table
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.
Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
