Artful living

If you ask any art collector what his or her ideal home would be, I'm almost positive this outrageously handsome loft is it. The Collector's Loft, in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, was designed by Dutch architectural team UN Studio. Their design concept explores the interaction between a private gallery and living space. They decided to replace some of the existing windows for floor-to-ceiling glass panels to frame the spectacular skyline views the city has to offer. The sensual curves of the walls serve as backdrop to their splendid collection of art, as well as separating the living areas. For flooring, the designers chose 1½ feet wide planks of douglas fir to maintain the right proportions. And of course, with almost 6000 square-feet of open space, minimalism was the way to go. 

But from all the artwork in this loft, this collection of colorful prints is my favorite. I love the way they're displayed without rhyme or reason. At least, that's what is seems like. However, I'm sure they spent some time to curate such perfect composition.
