Scandinavian simplicity with oriental notes transforms this warehouse home for light and easy summer living. Origami and accessories based on pleated paper complement raw heritage elements feature in the living room (above) while in the bedroom (below) light wood furniture is pared with soft accent shades. Throughout, faux marble and concrete complements real brick. And a variety of textures, including timber, textiles and rattan soften raw industrial features, adding layers of textured detail to the interior.
