beauty & the biscuit

built in 1925, the historic biscuit company lofts building was originally home to the west coast headquarters of the national biscuit company (nabisco). to help transform downtown los angeles from a place for just business activity to a vibrant 24-hour residential area, the building was gutted and converted into 104 residential lofts. i really, really like kenneth brown's ecclectic and daring design choices in this apartment. the rich colors and textures are so inviting and invigorating. the mix of modern and vintage is so perfectly balanced. what i wouldn't give for those tufted red leather ottomans and the vintage motorcylce in the kitchen/dining nook ~ i love surprises in design like this!
