As a Tribeca loft pioneer late '70s I am trying very hard not to be super envious of these wealthy latecomers. Back in the day we paid $600/month for a 5,000 square foot loft, four windows across front and back, which we promptly subdivided and rented out the back half for $1,200. And there were probably people before us who regarded us as greedy parvenus. Agree with Trollopian "Circle of Life."

Thanks Erin for all your responses. Much appreciated and not always done. I am considering the dining room rug for our bedroom. Which is mostly white/black/grey/fuschia.

I wonder why my comment about the colors being jarring was deleted?

Wonderful. What arrondissement? I'm guessing the 7th.

As someone who moved from a large three-story country house to a one-bedroom apartment I can relate to this couple's expressed challenge:
"To create a space to entertain groups of twenty or more."
But I'm having difficulty telling from the photos how 20+ people could be entertained in their living room. What am I missing?

I love the window seat cushions. Did you have them custom made?

Kitchen Remodel Makeovers: 20 Great Before & After Transformations for Every Budget

We were loving it at Ikea Brooklyn where we lounged in comfort. I'm not tall so I was able to curl up like a cat. I wouldn't recommend for larger people. We loved the feel if not the color of the Samsta Grey. I'm thinking of getting 2 one-seat sections and 1 corner section with no armrests, resulting in a 75 5/8 x 75 5/8 configuration. Total cost $718.

This is a wonderful renovation and gives me inspiration. I can't wait to read about the budget. So happy for you.

Lots of nice things but in order to fully appreciate I need to get a sense of how it all fits together.

Your place reminds me of ours, which is in a former factory office building. We have the same sash windows, but not exposures on both sides as you do. I find your home very bright, airy and uncluttered but not sterile or over-stylized.

Ok the couch is from Ikea ... does anyone know which model?

Boy has Ft. Greene changed. We bought a building there in 1980 for $16,000. We also had a view of the bank's clocktower. My daughter used to call it "My Castle".

So envious of it all and I love the clean clear open spaces and high ceilings. A workspace is mentioned but unclear where it was -- unless it refers to the bit of desk space at the end of the kitchen counter.

Thanks so much for the theanou.com reference. Perhaps I can dig up a picture of my old rug and have these women make another for me. I would much rather see the money go in their pockets than Pottery Barn's.

I could kick myself for letting go of mine at a yard sale for way too little money. I was downsizing from 2400' to 450' so I was in an "everything has to go" mood. I miss many of my things but I wish I kept this rug, even if rolled up in a storage unit for some later use.

I think that if someone opens their home to a tour then they must steal themselves for negative feedback. I know I would.

I myself enjoyed this tour and I can understand the joy Pomona gets being surrounded by her world travel purchases, displayed to their best effect. I know I take much joy in some of my things in just the same way. It is pleasing to the eye.

Can anyone hazard a guess re the living room dimensions, including ceiling height.
It's large enough to accommodate 3 couches without looking over-crowded in the least.
