I’ve always loved exposed brick walls inside homes, but it can be
difficult to bring warmth and coziness to these industrial spaces. I
love so many elements in this apartment renovation from Cassidy Hughes,
an interior designer living in London: the open shelving in the
kitchen, the minimal new bathroom layout and the eye-catching
citron-colored quilted sofa in the living room, just to name a few. This

e feels relaxed and lived in but not overcrowded, and I love that
they kept the salvaged look consistent throughout with industrial-style
lighting fixtures and rustic furniture pieces. Nicely done, Cassidy! — Kate

Time: 5 months

Cost: £30,000 (about $48,000) for all remodeling costs, furniture, lighting and accessories

Basic Steps: The apartment is a warehouse
conversion, so the goal was to embrace the industrial feel of space. I
think the most helpful advice I could give someone trying to achieve
this look is knowing where to spend money and being very creative and
diverse in your sourcing. The lighting was a vital aspect to achieving
this look, so we spent a lot of time and money finding the perfect ones.

The dining table and bench, however, were great market finds,
originally from a pub in Germany and a steal at £300. The kitchen is a
perfect example of this; we mixed high-end appliances with Ikea cabinets
and sink. Don’t be afraid to make bold choices, and trust your
instinct. For me, it was the sofa that was met with initial reservations
from almost everyone, but even the skeptics agree that it ended up
being perfect for the space.
