Eclectic interior design in a loft apartment
The interior design degree is moved to Keristien Rackham to New Orleans, to help her father run his antique shop. So, she had a great opportunity to establish their loft apartment near the French quarter.
Rackham makes skillful blends. It combines elegant rustic pieces with fun finds, so that a young, but also wise environment will be created. The style is in line with the building – a beautiful former rice mill of 1890-er with an industrial brick exterior, which is now adorned with graffiti art. In such a space you would like to relax with a book in his hand.
