As a full-service high-end residential design firm specializing in new construction and remodeling projects, Marianne Jones LLC, with locations in Michigan and California, believes every home should be a reflection of those who live there. For this luxury condo, a well-edited look with clean lines and layered textures and tones fits the bill for someone looking for deluxe digs and in-town living.
Interior designers Marianne Jones and Elle Tor had a vision for the industrial space. “We wanted to create a hardscape that was quiet and neutral,” says JonJones and Tor stated, “The main focus was to keep it relatively neutral to appeal to more people, with a nod to the industrial vibe.”
The soothing neutral palette blends metals and woods with subtle fabrics and rugs with an organic feel. The light linen sectional contrasts with the dark wood coffee table in the living room. Flexible furnishings include footstools that offer additional places to sit when needed. “We tried to maximize the amount of seating,” says Tor.
A well-curated mix pairs a vintage metal-and-glass console behind the sofa with a wood media cabinet beneath the TV. “The loft has an industrial-hip vibe with softened contemporary clean neutral lines. It would be easy for someone to move right in,” says Jones.
Making the third-floor unit more efficient was a real game changer. “It didn’t have a lot of storage or usable kitchen space,” she adds. “We created a hallway
console for keys, added a food pantry and coat closet. We doubled the size of the kitchen.” Updates include new cabinets, quartz countertops, appliances and an island that makes it great for gathering and entertaining.
The ensuite master bedroom was outfitted with a custom closet, and luxury master bath, while the second bedroom was designed to become a flex space that can accommodate overnight guests or someone working from home. “Having so much storage makes it more functional for the times that we live in,” says Tor.
Other perks include the wonderful light and tall ceilings and windows. “With all that glass, it’s this great expanse with a view looking onto the courtyard,” says Jones. The luxurious décor and more usable space elevate the stress-free setting. “With condo living in a beautiful location, you just turn the key and leave worries behind,” says Jones.
This is a lifestyle property with a great location and the opportunity for turnkey living. “It feels like a fully functional home, not a condo,” says Tor.isting elements, such as tall ceilings and track lighting were cozied up with warm, naturally finished wide-plank oak flooring.
