Eclectic Bachelor Retreat

Posted: 10 Sep 2013 08:35 AM PDT

With this industrial loft, Russia-based design firm Nordes has created a truly masculine urban retreat that any bachelor would be happy to call home. While keeping many of the stanchly industrial elements, including exposed beams and bare walls, the carefully curated furnishings and bold d├ęcor make the space a home. It may go without saying that this one room loft is not intended for children, but it still manages to include plenty of playfulness – of the adult variety.

The sunny dining area centers around a large, heavy table that uses various industrial elements, including a top made from reclaimed wood.  Red metal chairs add a subtle pop of color to a mostly neutral room. A clever folding wall can hide the kitchen if so desired, or can be kept open, creating an interesting, angular awning.

Considering this loft more of a "transitional" home, the designers opted not to build out a separate closet area. Instead, a vintage trunk and repurposed lockers offer a stylish solution to the very practical concern of where to put one's clothes.

The whole apartment is a tribute to urban creativity, and that includes the bathroom. In place of a mirror, a tongue-in-cheek statement looks back at you and tells the truth: You Look Fine. Stainless steel fixtures have a clean and almost institutional feeling.

Wood covers the floors and walls for a bit of nature in this highly man-made space. The bare wood walls give this highly polished apartment a slightly unfinished feeling. Perhaps a reminder from the designer that bachelorhood may be comfortable, but should also be temporary.
