Loft Living

A large floral-inspired area rug defines the living area in this open concept loft. Designer Diego Rincon keeps the main furniture neutral, but adds vibrancy to the space with rich fuschias, purples, blues and pinks in the area rug and pillows. The palm tree complements the vast height of the ceiling, while also drawing the eye into the seating area.

Creating Contrast

Layering different textures and colors gives the contemporary space a homey, lived-in feeling. The bold hues of the lamp and pillows juxtapose against the black-and-white photos and accessories for an eclectic vibe.

Beautiful Artwork

The large encaustic (or hot wax painting) is a stunning focal point in the living room. Rincon shows the homeowner's love of art and creativity through the variety of art pieces from the black-and-white photography to the abstract paintings.

Blending Styles

The living area is a happy mix of different textures, including the natural wood and stone of the fireplace, the mirrored steel of the coffee table, the leather on the ottomans, and the silks, cottons and textured weaves used on the pillows.

Mix of Accessories

The loft features several built-in shelves, the perfect spots to display the homeowner's favorite art pieces and coffee table books. A vase of leaves is a fresh way to bring nature and life into the space.
