Game Changer

A dated Bucktown loft becomes a modern bachelor pad with a party-ready attitude

(page 2 of 5)

The dining nook, before and after
A dining nook has its own well-defined space but doesn’t interrupt the visual flow of the room. Granite-flecked cork wallpaper adds subtle texture on the walls; three tall mirrors create depth and interest. Sassy pillows make the banquette feel even more sofa-like.

LESS IS MUCH MORE
Gramenos replaced the fussy, old-fashioned mantel with a simple stainless steel unit. She nixed the glass tile she had planned to use for a surround, deciding even that was too much (“We’re saving it for the bathroom”). A cutout above the fireplace repeats its shape and provides a simple, sophisticated display area for art.
