Rustic Detroit Loft

I’ve been finding a lot of great-looking apartments and homes lately, so I’ll continue to feature them as I can.

This is the home of the founder of the ever-hilarious Texts From Last Night. It’s a loft in downtown Detroit and, while there are certainly some very hipster elements, the overall look and feel that’s a great downtown mix between Rugged and Rakish.

While nothing really matches, everything still compliments the other elements. The wood, metal, leather, and fur all contrasts really well against the bright colors, loud prints, and plant life.

The key to pulling of a place like this (or any other for that matter) is to build off of the unalterable or existingly unique elements. If you want to see the rest of the place and learn more about where the two brothers sourced their stuff, check out the full article here.

    Enjoying these posts, Tanner. Giving me some solid ideas for my room. I have the bare essentials right now, simply so that I don’t buy anything I don’t absolutely love.

      Thanks Sam. That’s an awesome approach to both your home and your wardrobe.

    Given that this is Destroit, where’s the safe room?

    I kid of course, actually I like how that place looks.

    • MasculineStyle

      Haha. Good question. I’m sure it’s part of the building itself. I bet their HOA pays for it.

    Whenver I see these spacious and airy interior decor pics all I can think about is how it must cost a fortune to heat and cool.

    Looks about as inviting as a Dentist’s office

    I love this. Some real wit goes into a place like this, some nicely subtle, other… being a poster in the bathroom. Heh. I really love that table with the branch structure! Need to find/make something like that, though with a wooden top. (Me with a glass desk = disaster.)
