Regardless of the lack of exposed brick, the loft gets its New York flair from iron-framed windows. These extend across the entire main room, opening it up to the city views much like it is done in the New York lofts. The white walls, columns, and staircase, however, give it a classic Scandinavian look. There aren’t many decorations or design elements, so the frosty minimal atmosphere very much translates into the Nordic aesthetic.
A monochromatic color scheme is very modern for any space, and the kitchen is no exception. If monochromatic is what you’re after, be sure to vary the tones and tints of the color itself, as well as the sheen and texture.

When combined, the effect is interesting with great visual depth.
This rich, color-infused combination is warm, cozy, and welcoming. It works best with a natural light source, because the colors themselves lean toward the darker end of the spectrum.

Some of these designs have additional features like drawers, built-in ovens, or shelves, if you will.
