There is so significantly to love about this 2150sqft river loft apartment positioned in the 13 district of Budapest, Hungary and overlooking the panoramic views of the Danube River. Owned and made by Shay Sabag, the combination of industrial, rustic, glam and global styles come together into a informal elegance total of comfort and intrigue. Include to this the total iPhone management system and you have an apartment that is not only gorgeous but functionally effortless to control.
The mixture of styles is presented from the second you arrive. The foyer boasts a niche wrapped in spectacular and rustic walls of brick but inside the niche is a completely scaled industrial cabinet of 9 drawers and in front of that is a kilim rug complete of international pattern . The touch of glam shines down on the vignette in the form of a complicated chandelier of numerous bulbs of varying heights. Each and every piece brings its very own colour, texture and story and the blend of all is magic.
Just previous the entry hall the apartment opens up to a larger foyer area the place the house owner keeps their bicycle. Right here a black and white wall mural of 50s charm blends with the open ducting and concrete flooring. A second kilim rug and a tiny plant deliver in the only spots of colour but the several textures and visuals inside of the area maintain the scene alive and interesting.
The ducting continues from the hallway via the foyer and into the kitchen. Extra ceiling functions are the projector over the bar and the huge vent over the stove. All in grey they carry on the theme of the concrete floors and grey upholstery but the space is kept warm and inviting through the heavy timbered ceilings, the brick walls and dark wood bookshelf in the distance.
The kitchen stove vent is outfitted with a pot rack for added storage and the house owner has taken advantage of this vertical show to function chillies, pots and notes clipped with clothespins – restaurant design.
The uncommon farm sink combined with the gooseneck faucet are a fantastic addition to an otherwise industrial layout as is the effectively utilized chopping block. The room feels effectively employed, content and genuine.
On the far side of the kitchen is the “library”. With its floor to ceiling shelving and the “aged” leather lounger, the space has a genuine lived in vibe that is as cozy as could be. The copper piping for the hotwater radiator technique adds that extra layer of industrial material towards an otherwise plain wall to complete the vignette and generate a vertical division to the dining spot just beyond.
The dining location is outfitted with a plank table and a glitzy chandelier. Just previous the table is a wine wall for both practical show and artistic layout and in front of it is the living space complete with projector and ceiling mounted display in front of the windows and fireplace beneath the windows.
The dining table features huge and thick slabs of wood with a equivalent bench on 1 side and wicker and rattan chairs on the other. The seem is absolutely nation but the glitzy chandelier glams it up although the surrounding walls and floor preserve the industrial vibe flowing.
It will take guts and vision to pair this lower glass chandelier with the country set-up below it and the rustic wine wall beside it.
The wall of wines is a ideal way to characteristic the house owners bar. Making use of glass shelves to generate the 2 a serving counter and storage for wine glasses brings in a minimalist moment inside of an otherwise heavily layered scheme. The rows of wine bottles protruding from the brick wall is just plain art.
The wine bottles are suspended on copper tubing which is an great way of generating continuum with the copper radiator system featured on the other side of the dining location.
The living room flows seamlessly from the dining spot whilst even now presenting its personal distinctive design and style functions this kind of as the grouping of 3 brass tables. Adding in the brass to the already featured copper and stainless steel, keeps the combine of metals exciting and varied. The stainless steel backing to the gel fireplace brings the silver metal out of the kitchen and into the residing room and the 2 stacks of wood on both side, although not usable, keeps that nation rustic aesthetic firmly entrenched.
Beside the residing area and by way of a wall of mullioned glass is the bedroom. Here too a minimize glass chandelier brings in the glam although a red zig zag floor lamp adds a touch of vintage.
The bedroom is fortunate to also have a scenic view of the Danube and with the ensuite part of the very same room the tub has a feature place below one particular of the windows.
The tub is a massive stainless steel soaker positioned on an angle and characteristics a chunky floor mounted faucet. The wall of closets on the far wall is clad in smoky glass and the headboard wall is clear glass exposing the walk-in shower behind it. Right here, unlike the social zone, the floors have switched to all-natural broad plank wood and even though it does have a copper radiator it also has a below window baseboard.
The vanity is a basic open wood construction in comprehensive contrast to the chandelier, but just like in the dining space, the mixture of the 2 surrounded by the industrial hardscape efficiently produces a room of “opposites appeal to”.
Even the vessel sinks add a unique flavour to the room. Duna River
