This urban factory turned apartment photographed by Renee Hollingshead is the epitome of “good bones” with windows that my entire house could probably fit through. Natural light is a hot commodity people and this gorgeous loft is rolling in it. It’s the home of Christina Boschetti of Widell Designs who has a penchant for stripes (see her son’s nursery!) and fun pops of whimsy. Find more in the VAULT.
My apartment was put together from all sorts of things in my travels, including my wedding which I designed myself. I went from living in a super modern Phillip Starck building in New York to a rustic chic 2 story apartment in Philly. Being a cook, I was hesitant to move in to this type of space whereas the kitchen was not at all a chef oriented. Before the move-in date, I spent 6 days painting the “90’s style” oak cabinets to a tudor color. I added animal hooks to use for the knobs for a twisted pop. I updated most of the appliances and added a couch for more of an intimate setting. People have a tendency to congregate towards the kitchen so I added as much seating as possible in the small space. The ceilings are high so i painted the walls up to 75% the height to make the space look even bigger. The first gift I bought my husband was a collection of PLAYBOYS consisting of the entire year he was born which I got off EBAY! My living space reflects on my husband and my personalities; fun, energetic, and unexpected! My favorite color is grey and I love stripes as they are classic and never will go out of style.
