This contemporary loft by Sheldon, Mindel & Associates features grand interior columns as a design element. Instead of covering up the building’s internal architectural structure, exposing them as part of the space is a good decorating idea. The columns here seen throughout the whole apartment give it a special look. They also help to define areas throughout the space. Another advantage is the space gained. Additionally, this apartment makes the most out of its natural light and the light grey and neutral color scheme maintain that fresh and airy feel. A Piet Mondrian painting entitled Broadway Boogie Woogie inspired the look of the contemporary ceiling. Another interesting choice by the designers is the lighting scheme, which unfortunately cannot be seen in these images. They went with ceiling lights that can be programmed to pulse in various different colors. Indeed a modern touch. To learn more, check out .
