For a young couple, this rustic residence proved to be the ideal setting to infuse their personality. Fanny Abbes of The New Design Project updated this urban Jersey City loft by combining bold colors, playful textures and modern pieces that add up to create a cool, youthful space. The result is an eclectic motif that juxtaposes the existing woodwork and exposed brick with graphic prints and artful accents.
In the entry area, the designer positioned green velvet armchairs from Ikea in front of the built-in fireplace where George Nelson bubble pendants hang from overhead. Black and white graphic print rugs from Ikea and CB2 complete the room, alongside custom block-shaped side tables by The New Design Project.
A mid-century table from Circa60.com anchors the dining room and is met with assorted Jean Prouve chairs. Against the wall sits a walnut buffet with warm brass accents from Organic Modernism and vintage mushroom lamps from Brooklyn Auction Barn standing atop. A trio of Tom Dixon copper pendants make the space feel more sculptural and an abstract art piece provides a backdrop for the buffet.
The living room balances style with comfort and the orange settee from Crate & Barrel and matching kilim rug from Sophie’s Bazaar provide the room’s boldest pop of color. The marble and walnut coffee table from BluDot decorated with accessories from CB2, H&M Home and Ikea give off a minimalist vibe, while the three-arm ceiling lamp from Serge Mouille and graphic wall prints—all by The New Design Project—add eccentricity.
In the bedroom, the design takes an unexpected twist with shades of turquoise and a jute rug from West Elm as both wall décor and the room’s focal point. Simple touches such as geometric Shayk pendants, the cord bench from CB2 and a Beni Ourain inspired rug from Burke Décor tie the space together to create a cohesive look. The furnishings embody a mid-century aesthetic with clean lines, straight edges and walnut coloring that preserves the rustic yet urban look of this Jersey City loft home.
