If there was ever an apartment that made us want to clean up our act and start fresh, this might just be it. What once stood as a tired loft in West Oakland, received a crisp, contemporary update, thanks to Brett Foken and the team at Bay Area design firm, Decorotation.
Boasting high ceilings, a clean, Japanese-inspired aesthetic, and the ultimate in low-maintenance living, the crammed warehouse conversion that once occupied this address, is now but a foggy memory.
"The clients had recently purchased their West Oakland loft, and wanted to create a home that reflected their minimalist style that was also extremely functional," says Foken of the project. "They're a young couple who are both busy, working professionals, and felt the need for their home to be as clean and clutter-free as possible, so that when they came home from a busy work day they could fully unwind, and do things they enjoy — like cook and entertain."
If Marie Kondo's Tidying Up didn't quite resonate with you on a personal level, perhaps this apartment will. Click through our gallery and take a walk through this cohesively minimal space.
