Birmingham loft with traditional and modern mix by William McClure on Thou Swell @thouswellblog(via The NeoTrad, photography by Hector Manuel Sanchez)

I just can’t get enough of this elegant living room in William McLure’s Birmingham loft. He’s one of my favorite ‘New Southern‘ designers with an extraordinary range of talent from decorating to his fabulous abstract painting. He moved from his apartment (as seen on One Kings Lane) in Birmingham to a stunning loft last year, and watching the design evolve on his popular Instagram feed has been super fun. I also love how he divided the open plan – see the curtains at the back of this shot, separating the bedroom from the living area. Every element is balanced just so, industrial rigidity against forgiving natural textures, modern textiles, and antique silhouettes.

Enjoy the product guide below to see how gorgeous pieces like the chic armless sofa and abstract artwork might add the same interesting conversation to your own home.

  1. I really love the dividing curtain as well! Ever since I first moved into my apartment last year, I thought that my room would do well with a curtain, but I’ve been so lazy -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
