On the Market: A Whitewashed Brick-and-Beam Loft in Fort Point
This condo in a former factory building could not be chicer.
21 Wormwood St. #214, Boston
Size: 1,540 square feet
This sleek and airy Seaport condo shows just how chic a simple black-and-white scheme can be. Pale oak floors lay the foundation for a Scandinavian palette, and whitewashed brick walls and beamed ceilings bounce the light around the room. But the windows, which date back to the building’s 1900 construction as part of a factory complex, have been painted black to pop against the white backdrop. Along one wall, the trim around three former windows has been painted in charcoal, too, and converted into a trio of built-in bookshelves.
Across the room from the windows and living area, high-gloss white cabinetry with black hardware and an island with a waterfall quartz counter furnish the kitchen in that same minimalist scheme. Three glass globe pendants hang just overhead, from long black chains, giving a warm glow to the contemporary breakfast bar.
The bedrooms have a slightly cozier look, with midcentury modern pizazz emanating from brassy Sputnik-style chandeliers made of miniature bulbs protruding from a web of rods. Off the master bedroom, a short alley of closets can stash away a hefty wardrobe, and because there’s no door on the entrance to the alcove, the window at the end of it lets light into the rest of the room. Another unexpected space? The home office, where patterned gray wallpaper, a white brick wall, and bold black window frame bring the design full circle. It’s the perfect place to get your work done—in timeless style.
