A few months back, we featured Sue Hoestetler’s amazing loft in SoHo which was designed by the brilliant Valerie Pasquiou. We liked what Valerie did with the space so much, we decided to reach out to her (which means we stalked her!) to see if we could get some face time. It turns out that Valerie is more than nice, and happily invited us to visit her downtown Manhattan loft that she recently moved into.
The space is marked by her signature style: a select mix of twentieth century modern pieces, bold art and quirky accessories that give the environment personality. Valerie doesn’t take herself too seriously and her home reflects this wonderfully. Suffice it to say, the warm and inviting loft was hard to leave.

For interior designer Andrew Flesher, furnishing contemporary settings with antiques and vintage collectibles is his trademark. Nowhere is this better displayed than in his Minneapolis loft. Complete with 13-foot-high ceilings, white concrete floors and an entirely open floor plan, Flesher has used more traditional upholstered pieces to decorate the space. The mix of old and new creates a fresh look, one that reinvents conventional modern décor.

Owned by an undisclosed famous british designer, this industrial loft is being offered for location shoots for Beach Studios. It’s located in London in a converted industrial building and features original elements, including the steel sliding doors.
In Chicago’s Greektown neighborhood lives Swedish-born photographer Andreas Larsson, who moved to the US more than ten years ago to attend photography school in Miami. Since then, he’s traveled internationally on assignment, but calls his loft in Chicago “home.”
Larsson has a low tolerance for clutter, preferring simple, stark minimalism. He draws inspiration from the “Danish Modern” movement and names Grete Jalk, Arne Jacobsen, and Hans Wegner as favorites.
Slightly more than 1,000-square-feet in size, Larsson chose a few modern pieces to decorate his space, creating a tranquil environment that’s as much about the bones of the loft as it is about the particular items that fill it.

Six stops out of the island of glass, past the million dollar condos in Williamsburg, off the L train Morgan stop, and across from the fortune cookie factory is Marcus and Kayce’s loft. Simple but beautiful, this 900 square foot loft has the space to cook large meals and hold low-key record parties.

Kayce’s favorite thing: The bathroom. Designing an apartment with no walls is tough sometimes. The bathroom is the only area I can truly say I feel is complete. Perhaps because of its more intimate size, I was able to focus on making it reflect a combination of our tastes, as well as pull the eye to the collections of things we’ve gathered together in our relationship. Every item has meaning. From the turkey feather, tiny dagger, and old firecrackers that we got from Marcus’s granddad to the vintage vials of aspirin that we got on a road trip, it’s all a tribute to the adventures we’ve had and the people we love. It’s a nice place to wash up every morning.
Marcus’s favorite thing: The turn tables.
Known for her contemporary yet “lived-in” interiors, designer Valerie Pasquiou has made a name for herself, boasting a client list that includes celebrities Lisa Kudrow, kd Lang, and Sharon Stone. Equally up-and-coming is the author of Hip Hollywood Homes, Sue Hosteler, who has is hosting a new TV show, Plum Homes with Sue Hosteler, on the PLUM TV NETWORK, showcasing extravagant real estate all over the country, and intimate interviews with the owners, often bold-faced names.
A few years ago, Sue hired Valerie to furnish her industrial loft in New York’s SoHo. The result? A gorgeous mix of mid-century modern and traditional pieces pulled together by an abundance of light. We saw the loft on Desire to Inspire and had to share it.
