A busy bachelorette fled the ‘burbs in favor of a city loft in Minneapolis, MN. When she arrived, she realized her industrial surroundings lacked the comfort, warmth, and color she craved.
Some like it hot. The owner selected Minneapolis Interior Designer Brandi Hagen to spruce and spice up her space. Brandi’s mission: to create comfort, warmth, and continuity throughout the Minneapolis condo.
Where the view takes center stage. Full-length, traversing drapery panels provide privacy, light protection, and heat, while framing a spectacular panorama of downtown Minneapolis. In the dining area next to the windows, a thin, airy, metal-framed chandelier provides bright light without obstructing the view.
Furniture lines are clean and simple, with solid-colored fabrics throughout the condo. Varied textures add interest and warmth. The richly colored silk and wool rug grounds the living space and adds another dimension to the living room interior design.
A custom floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround, wrapped in Ribbon Mahogany squares and trimmed with stainless steel strips, creates a checkerboard pattern. The natural graining and tones of the mahogany add texture and warmth, while the stainless steel strips tie the design into the rest of the space.
An avid reader’s dream. The owner required lots of space to store her books. Minneapolis Interior Designer Brandi Hagen delivered, with custom, built-in bookcases along an entire wall. The bright color behind serves as a beautiful, yet subtle accent within the open floor plan, where a loveseat invites the hardworking homeowner to put up her feet and set a spell.
In the kitchen, the existing center island is wrapped in durable stainless steel. A glass mosaic backsplash encompasses the entire kitchen, giving the space more continuity, color, and a little sparkle.
