Loft-style interior: do we say “bye” to it or don’t let it go?

It is important to remember that the loft style comes from industrial spaces. And as it was appropriate in industrial spaces, so it remains, especially if it is an industrial building made of red brick, which is not uncommon in St. Petersburg. The loft style remains in the lofts.
The designers sent only the Russian interpretation of the loft style to the list of anti-trends. The one with the red-brick wall in the middle of the room. Industrial styling of small-sized apartments in new buildings seems especially inappropriate in 2020.
With a slight movement of the hand, the loft turns…
The industrial flavor in the residential space is leaving the fashion scene, but the loft style is too early to write off. Like Scandinavian, it adapts easily to fashion trends.
The loft can become a black earth soil in which elements from other styles will take root. Good news: there are no style contraindications.
There are two ways to go. The first option is to reduce the intensity of industry by mixing with more “home” styles, which have a lot of cozy textured textiles. The loft is well “fused” with a related Scandinavian interior, and can make an interesting pair with a relaxed boho or British classics.
The second way is the way of contrasts. Against the background of loft textures, country, shabby chic, vintage “ingredients” and even glamorous art Deco and Baroque look interesting. The loft can be used as a canvas for any interior experiments.
The brutality of loft textures can be paired with emphasized feminine elements.
The trend solution is a mix with the current mid-century.
The loft becomes lighter, homey, and intelligent. It is enough to abandon the red brick, and such characteristic loft elements as “water” lamps.
What’s left of the loft? Glass partitions and tiles “under concrete”look actual. You can leave your favorite brick, but in a new shade.
Fashionable, not fashionable
In fact, no interior style can completely go out of fashion, because each style has its own customer. Only certain elements and solutions are forgotten.
Interior styles can be “turned” as you like: refresh, upgrade, mix, and be in the trend.
But if you like the loft in its good old interpretation with open wiring, concrete ceiling and red brick, then choose it. You need to remember: fashion is a game, and you can either accept its rules or play by your own. In addition, the loft remains a practical solution, thanks to the “unkillable” materials and the ability to save on rough finishing.
