A Pop of Color: Atlanta Loft

Before 2010 begins I thought I’d do a post a little different from what I usually post. One of my good friends that works at City Search sent me an email telling me I had to look at how a co-worker of hers in Atlanta decorated HIS condo. Yes, a man and his loft is decorated in a hip, vibrant and modern way. I think every man should take a few pointers from this condo.
Meet Jonathan Baker, a man that not only knows all of the best places to go in Atlanta, but gets to come home to his bold and beautiful loft.

He mixes old and new furniture to get more unique interior style. Plus vibrant colors that bounce off each other and give the loft a fun feeling. I love the way he put in a vintage Wurlitzer organ, talk about creative.

Jonathan’s decor in the open living room is a mix of all sorts of price points. His favorite price point – FREE – is present in the form of the enormous black and white promotional vinyl print of Jonathan from a magazine event. He definitely knows how to score some deals. The reproduction Wassily chairs he scored at a local warehouse sale and he waited months for this Create & Barrel couch to hit craigslist.

I’d kill to have a commute like Jonathan’s. It’s only an 11-foot commute and from the looks of it, who wouldn’t have fun working in this environment? I love the way the tangerine Eiffel chair by Eames and the lime Series 7 chair play off the wall colors. It ties everything together, but not in a matchy way.

Can you believe this bedroom has no windows? Well believe it. He painted the walls with an electric tone from Porter’s “Aloe Vera,” which doesn’t seem to look that vibrant to me, especially next to the red and blue bedding he chose.

I think Jonathan has a talent in him (other than knowing the best places to eat, drink and shop in Atlanta). I think we’ll be seeing more of his interior talents in the future. It just goes to show you, men can decorate!
