Paris is known to be one of the style capitals in the world and this loft conversion certainly isn't going to question that!

From one fashion capital to another, we come to Milan! This loft is so stylish that it could be an exclusive art gallery! Dark wood flooring adds a wonderful contrast to the all-white scheme and eye-catching statement furniture really sets an elegant, chic tone. The mezzanine floor looks to be drenched in natural light, which makes it the perfect location for a bedroom and we are loving all those large plants that break up the white!
This loft home is fabulous for two reasons; it's trendy AND passive.

Bologna is certainly looking beautiful from where we're standing, as this modest and modern loft apartment is absolutely stunning! Yet again, we see that almost uniform palette of white and wood throughout, but it never gets stale does it? Instead of contrasting black metal here, we see soft grey tones, which blend with the pale wood floor effortlessly and just look how well the open-plan layout works here! We certainly wouldn't mind our office being so close to the kitchen as we'd be able to reach the coffee more easily!
Well apparently not every loft conversion has to be filled with natural pale wood and white walls! This striking home look phenomenal with a dark wood frame and even a boxed off sleeping pod! The way the natural light dances in this space is a work of art and envelops the whole home in a warm, inviting hug that we know we'd want on our dream home.
