When our client first told us he wanted to sell his loft I thought Wow… haven’t heard that one before. In over 20 years of experience this was my first “loft” sale. Ever the traditionalists, I like living quarters to have distinct rooms, and prefer classic style over modern. But my skeptical views toward loft-style living vanished the minute I entered “The Centre Street Lofts” in San Pedro for the first time.
Yes, it’s essentially still one large, open space, but it’s filled with function and flair. His loft is a prime example of how cutting-edge contemporary style can be comfortable. The interior features 9’6″ soaring ceilings throughout. Floor to ceiling impressive wall of windows with city light views of the surrounding neighborhood and the hills of Palos Verdes. This unit has an unmistakable catchy cool Urban Vibe.
Using color. This loft has concrete walls and floors. And although expanses of solid concrete have the potential to look bland, stark, and super-industrial, His loft is anything but. That’s because some walls are painted with bright vibrant colors and large pieces of artwork adorn many of the other walls. Plus, he warmed up the space with fun furniture and accents that add character.
Flexible furnishings. The key to making the most of undefined space is to strategically arrange your furnishings, and to opt for portable furnishings whenever possible.
• When he desires a bit more privacy, has guests and wants that “second bedroom” feel, he can use a large folding screen to close off the space at the other end of the huge room where the other full bathroom sits.

Conveniences. His kitchen features beautiful Euro-style Maple cabinetry and Ceasar Stone counter tops with built -in appliances and under cabinet task lighting.
