A Modern Arts and Crafts Loft
Library mixes old and new
Reeded-glass French doors open to the library. Anita repurposed the original cornice to the Pettigrew bank vault as the fireplace mantel in the library. The cornice looks seamless with the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired tile fireplace surround, yet highlights a piece of the building's history and exemplifies what Anita wanted to achieve in her loft.
"I feel that it's timeless, yet very urban, with a lot of warmth," she says. "I don't like to create cookie-cutter designs, so this is kind of an eclectic mix of Craftsman meets modern classic."
