Apartment Therapy Feature: Hip and Modish Interior Design

My cousin, Sarah, lives the sharp metropolitan lifestyle, complete with a cool, modish pad. She recently updated her city loft and the end result was outstanding! Sarah brought her vision and dreams to Tim McCormac of Temac Development. Tim designs luxury lifestyles, providing precision and detailed style to every project. His company commits to unparalleled excellence in everything they design.

Sarah (and her adorable dog Tigi)
are entirely grateful for the masterful work of her contractor,
Tim McCormac,
for helping her realize her interior design dreams.

Shortly after her loft's new look unveiled, it grabbed instant media attention. It was featured in the Arizona Central newspaper and it is now featured in the beloved Apartment Therapy. I would SO appreciate if you took a moment to go over to Apartment Therapy and vote on her home sweet home!

The finished home breathes
fresh, clean beauty
in every detail!

My most loved space of her home is the sleek dining area. It gives the feeling of being in a contemporary, hip lounge where new thinkers go to let their minds escape. The dramatic, tall, white seating adds a posh softness to the industrial, well- stated table. The industrial effects of the home were a personal touch Sarah wanted as a tribute to the hot rod, drag racing, lifestyle she grew up with. These metal accents were skillfully formed by Deluxe Customs.

The elements of the hip lounge style are carried into the living area. You can imagine how this space allows for progressive inspiration and original, creative thoughts to flow in cool surroundings.

This is sweet Tigi's spot. That little dog has a better life than me!

Sarah's artwork was carefully selected from both a local Arizona artist and an artist out of California. The local artist, with native roots from Mexico, Damian Robinson, added a brilliant canvas to artfully appoint her home.

In her kitchen, less is more. The minimalist statement downplayed decorative embellishments and focused on clean architectural lines. The influence of lighting can never be overestimated. Tim McCormac skillfully incorporated lighting throughout Sarah's home, enriching the experience this loft conveys.

Simple and calming, the bathroom and shower give solace to the mad rush after a busy day.

Sarah's sophisticated bedroom compliments the rest of her home with a unique style. The gentle greys add mellow relaxation to her room.

The wood floors throughout are fascinating because they are reclaimed wood from 1800s railroad trestles. They accent the cool, smart loft with organic warmth.

Sarah places fresh flowers in her home every week, which makes me go crazy! I just {double love} that idea!! Fresh flowers add such a natural feminine grace to homes, and always make me giddy *wink*.

I am so proud of my cousin and the lifestyle she created! Her home is fresh and on the edge. She is being featured in the always amazing, Apartment Therapy's annual contest and needs YOUR vote! But hurry, voting ends TODAY. Please head on over to see more photos and inpiration and give Sarah the thumbs up.

Thanks lovies!

Hi Lisa, thanks for stopping by for our house tour. I think your cousin's apartment is so young and fresh. We do house tours on our blog, definitely. Wish I'd known about hers before it appeared on Apt. Therapy, especially since she's here in NY. Perhaps we can work together in the future. -- Jane F.
