We've seen many projects this week that encompass views of perfect seas, beautiful mountains, and relaxing swimming pools. But today, we are going to imagine a different day—maybe rain, a thunderstorm, or hail? Why not? It's equally as beautiful after all. Everyone seems to be immediately sadden by the idea of winter, but when you take a look at this ideabook, you may change your mind, and be a little more reluctant to leave the house. A loft house is modern and spacious, often left open with minimal partitions and free of obstacles. It is the kind of space with contemporary decor and well planned spaces that will actually make you want to spend more time indoors rather than out.

1. A loft in Milan

A wonderful culmination of steel, concrete, render and timber, this loft space is a wonderful example of a warehouse conversion. Bathed in natural light, every corner and nook in this area is lit up. The icing on the top of the cake is the industrial styled painting that looms over the staircase— a wonderful touch to an already beautiful setting.

The ground floor has a kitchen has a complete stainless steel fitout which oozes both contemporary and industrial charm. In this case, the large glazing panels to the rear help to connect the dining area with the outdoors. As with the photo before, this space marries a wide range of textural and material finishes together to form a modern and inviting living space.

The second floor of the loft space has yet another another surprise: a terrace with a small pool. The decor is a little different in this area; the designers have opted for a more retro style in stark contrast with the rest of the house. Nonetheless, this charming sitting space looks warm and inviting.

2. A loft in Venice

The architects behind this project have uniquely redesigned the internal space of a large loft. Despite the fact this house spans two levels, the most striking element is the style. Here you can see refined classicism combined with a strong sense of modernity which has been executed with absolute precision. No doubt inspired by expensive showrooms and beautiful interior design magazines, this photograph is a picture perfect example of contemporary design.

A living room with a ceiling this high has a sense of unparalleled freedom. From the top, we can see how the truss retains a touch of the soul of the building. The colours are also elegant, and well matched with a decor that has a specific mission: few items, but of very high quality.

3. A loft in Treviso

One of the most undeniably striking elements of this room is the white timber pitched ceiling. Coupled with the high gloss and geometrically stark walls, the roof is a subtly opposing feature in the space. As well as this, the floorboards have a wonderfully subdued tone; the balance the space and give it a touch of warmth and texture.

If a loft means open space, then the bathroom should reflect the rest of the house accordingly. In an attempt to retain as much natural light in the room as possible, the designer has added a glass partition instead of a solid wall. This may not a favourable choice for many, however, you cannot deny how sleek this contemporary take on a bathroom looks.
