Resident: Jeff Schaffrick, who works in software development
Location: Atlanta's Castleberry Hill neighborhood
Size: 2,500 square feet, two bedrooms, two baths
Year built/bought: 1905/2004
Architectural style: Industrial loft
Favorite architectural elements: Original brick walls, exposed beams, 33-foot ceilings, a steel spiral staircase and unusual angles. For example, the gallery hallway narrows as it approaches the front door, and the stairwell widens from floors one to two.
Design consultants: CSI Kitchen and Bath; Derrick Spivey/Spivey's Creations
Renovations: New designer kitchen with custom Leicht cabinetry, quartz counters, glass back splash and the 20-foot stainless steel bar. Bamboo flooring added to the second and third levels.
Interior design style: Contemporary
Favorite interior design elements: Splashes of vibrant color through artwork, album covers and furniture.
Favorite piece of furniture: A white leather contemporary sofa, which has convertible arms and back rests that allow it to function as a sofa, lounge or even a bed.
Favorite collections: Schaffrick's '70s and '80s vinyl record collection. The albums — 161 of them — are displayed on one side of a 25-foot hallway that leads from the front entrance to the main living space, with contemporary art on the other wall.
Favorite outdoor elements: The rooftop terrace (technically a fourth level) offers skyline views. "It's a great area to look at the skyline at night," he said. In addition, the ground-floor private courtyard has a custom fountain and sitting area that rests upon an original steel warehouse door. The whole area can be open to the main living space, via a roll-up garage door and set of French doors. "In the spring and fall, I have the French doors and garage door open pretty much all the time," he said.
Resources: Most furniture from By Design Furniture, which has locations in Midtown Atlanta and Norcross.
