Photo Gallery: Sabrina Linn’s Colourful Condo
Peek inside an industrial yet chic loft.
Graphic wallpaper and white furniture add punch to the front hall.
In Sabrina's bright entryway, a laquered white hall table, unique drum light and white cube bench (with storage!) create visual interest. Hits of bright yellow in the flowers and striped rug perk up the space, as well.
An inspiration board doubles as art.
Homeowner and stylist Sabrina Linn mounted oversized corkboards in her foyer as an inspiration wall of favourite magazine images, sketches and fabric samples. She updated the settee — a $50 sample-sale find — with David Hicks fabric and fringe trim. For a change of pace, she lays a swatch of stylized floral fabric overtop.
Smooth over industrial edges with playful textiles and classic vintage furniture.
Decorator and former H&H style editor Sabrina Linn’s loft is bursting with personality. Sabrina’s vision was a Palm Springs-inspired space lit with hits of tangerine and chartreuse. In her stylish living room, a pair of vintage swivel armchairs from a local junk shop were recovered in orange velvet. They balance the lighter neutral pieces, like the teak chairs and glass-topped coffee table. Mirrors atop the console add a touch of glam and sparkle.
This bedroom went from bland to beautiful.
Sabrina chose to leave the backdrop neutral and play up juicy-toned accessories like pillows and drapes, to create a cheery room full of character. A vibrant, carefully chosen palette like this one can change the look of a room like nothing else.
Installing prefab shelving maximized the height of this compact closet.
DIY shelves look like custom built-ins. Removing the door and running carpet throughout the bedroom and the en suite closet visually connects and enlarges the two areas. A chinoiserie-print curtain hides the stacking washer and dryer
Sorbet colours and bamboo furniture add indoor style to an outdoor space.
Affordable acacia wood tiles—laid on top of the existing concrete—create a dramatic cabana effect in this outdoor space. A rectangular table and painted chairs also provide plenty of seating. “The bubble chandelier is one of my favourite pieces,” says homeowner Sabrina Linn. “It was under $50. I see it more like a piece of art since it’s so sculptural even when it’s not on.”
A lounger, bamboo furniture and tropical colours evoke a Miami-hotel vibe on the balcony.
The clamshell lounger canopy provides shelter on sunny days as well as a perfect perch to watch the sunset over cocktails at night. Pillows in summer shades with fresh white piping (available via custom order through Sabrina Linn) add punch to an otherwise neutral, white-and-wood palette.
Tall white planters create a gorgeous focal point.
White accessories pop against natural materials, such as the acacia wood floor tiles and bamboo chairs. The clean palette matches the indoor area, making the balcony appear to as an extension to the living room.
