What’s the modern answer to Mary Tyler Moore’s Minneapolis studio apartment? Take a look at this masterfully planned mini loft located in a century-old rescued row house in Antwerp, Belgium. Designed for Caroline Van Ranst, a young video producer making the leap from renter to owner, it’s the work of Belgian architecture firm Komaan!–translation, “Come on!”

Asked whether it’s hard to live with so much white, she told us, “I love the all-white interior. White makes my small space look big, it keeps everything light, and it’s easy to decorate."

Built from pine plywood, the vestibule has shelves on one side and hooks on the other.

Caroline sticks with all-white bed linens and curtains.

The sloping wall opposite the entry is a complex puzzle: “It embraces a bathroom [shower and sink], built-in storage, and kitchen, all in one volume.” 

Caroline sits on an Eames Chair at her Ikea kitchen table. The floor is painted oriented strand board, a kind of particle board.

The kitchen cabinets were custom built. The hanging lights are by Zangra, a Remodelista favorite–see Belgian Basics Arrive Stateside.
