This Beachy Brooklyn Loft Is Giving Us Major Redesign Inspiration

Two words: ocean view.

Kee Edwards’ Loup Charmant line reminds us of a summer vacation, which makes sense considering that she envisioned it while honeymooning in Portugal—her inspiration board is covered in photos of hot, humid spots. The designer’s loose, wispy pieces are the physical embodiment of summer, and her oceanside loft in Red Hook, Brooklyn, is just as much a nod to surf, sand, and sun. Coincidentally, when I spoke with Edwards on the phone, she was on vacation—the ocean breeze providing a soundtrack for our conversation.

When Edwards and her husband moved back to New York after living in Miami, her only requirement for their next home was a view of the water. They quickly found this apartment in Red Hook, but didn’t decorate for months; the views of the water were so good that all they needed was a simple couch to enjoy them on. Today the home is filled with books and artwork and tchotchkes, but Edwards’ favorite detail will always be the light spilling into the windows as the sun sets over the city.
