A winning bachelor pad doesn’t have to be dark, sleek, high-tech, and mysterious as they’re often portrayed. They can, for one, take the form of an amazing midcentury time capsule. Or for a more contemporary look that still embraces color and texture, check out the redesigned Brooklyn loft home of Ciaran McGuigan, the Creative Director at the North American branch of Irish handmade furniture brand Orior.
The space, hailed as "one of the last true lofts left in Williamsburg" by Justin DiPiero, the Homepolish designer who helped dress up McGuigan’s place, came ready with fabulous natural light and original beams and details. DiPiero’s approach was to preserve and highlight and open loft feel of the space, creating various laid-back living areas anchored by large rugs and statement-making original art. An extra benefit to keeping things rather open and free-flowing is that, given McGuigan’s access to Orior’s offerings, DiPiero could easily update the layout with new furniture when the old setup got well, old.
