A home inside the shell of a magnificent old warehouse

Someone left a little note in the comment section last week asking for more colour. Being into Scandinavian style I have to admit to being... er... more than a little colour shy (as you know!). However, I stumbled across this lovely space in a magnificent converted warehouse (styled by Australian homeware store Hunting for George) the other day and felt that although it's not positively bursting with colour, it does feature lovely pops of blue, pink, yellow and orange as well as some fab artwork which might just add a little ray of sunshine to someone's day! Checkout the beautiful decayed brickwork, high ceilings and magnificent arched windows too!

What a fabulous space! Wouldn't it be amazing to live in a conversion? So much history!

If you'd like to achieve a similar look to this home featured, many of the items can be found at Hunting for George.

I also love these converted schools, warehouses, barns, bars  and vicarages.

I've been lucky enough to visit not one but two converted schools lately. You might remember my friend Louise's home which went on the market a few weeks back (there was my chance damn it!). And we also photographed a wonderful apartment in an old school house in Norway for The Scandinavian Home. It belonged to artist Maria √ėverby and was suoer relaxed and full of character and inspiring details, the team had to drag me out of there at the end of the day! 

Do you live in a conversion of some sort? If so, I'd love to hear about it!  

Have a great day!

PS If you're thinking of visiting Copenhagen this weekend you must head to the Finders Keepers design market with over 200 amazing designers selling their wares! I'm giving away two VIP tickets here!

PPS Do feel free to leave ideas for anything you'd like to see more of here on My Scandinavian Home - I love receiving comments and hearing what you have to say about the homes I feature, as well as tips on what you'd like to see!

It looks like a historical place but with modern touch. I liked the decayed brickwork, high ceilings and magnificent arched windows, they impressed me the most. It would be very interesting to live in this place. Thank you for showing us such places and designs.

I love the black and white throw cushion on the sofa - any idea where that was purchased?

I like the mix of colorful artwork very much.

I live in a converted office building in Ottawa, Canada. It's a mid-century modern, five-storey yellow-brick building. My loft has 10-foot ceilings and wall-to-wall windows, and is open plan. Not quite industrial, but still a very cool look. It's like a greenhouse in the winter--the sun and warmth make me happy. Definitely not cookie-cutter. I love my place!

I lived with an exposed brick wall once and it looked cool but it was crumbly and dust catching. I wouldn't choose it again.

I am jealous, Laurel! If you like plants, check out @jamies_jungle on Insta.

This is such a dream place that I cannot even describe how I feel looking at it. Words escape me! I have always had a soft spot for exposed brick, especially when the brick is partially covered with patches of paint. This look will never get old . The tall windows and ceilings are amazing but I wonder how much it is to heat up such a place (unless one lives in a milder climate). Thanks for the beauty, Niki!

P.S.
I don't if something changed on your blog but for months I was unable to leave any comments - I would select the checkbox that I am not a robot and then the system would cycle me through a number of images and no matter what I selected (as another proof my reply is not a spam) I could never get past that! It was very frustrating and after many failed attempts I jsut gave up. I am so happy I can comment again so that you know how much I appreciate every post of yours.

More green and it's feel so good <3

It's quite boring, plus the two bed are kinda weird. I don't feel like this feels like home at all, so cold

The architecture is so magnificent isn't it? I'd love to have bones like this to play with!

My Scandinavian Home said...

I would hazard a guess that it's from Hunting for George - I love it too!

My Scandinavian Home said...

It adds such a great touch!

My Scandinavian Home said...

I know!!

My Scandinavian Home said...

Me too! It sounds wonderful Laurel!

My Scandinavian Home said...

Interesting! I hadn't thought about that aspect. Thank you for sharing!

My Scandinavian Home said...

Oh no! I wonder what happened? So strange! I missed your comments and am so happy you're back!
