Yes, an industrial loft can be cosy. Sarah Callanan, Angus & Company's in-house designer, fell in love with her 900-square-foot unit's raw features — exposed brick, natural wood beams and an open-concept floor plan — which she embellished with pops of colour, family antiques and vintage lighting. See how she updated the small kitchen by painting the cupboards out white, traded a tub for a luxe shower, and maximized storage in the bedroom.
