Betty's Room
Betty Kim's design philosophy is simple: make your space personal. She filled her industrial-style loft with hand-me downs, family heirlooms and reinvented pieces of artwork. She keeps storage out in the open: "If you have stuff that you need to put away, then you just shouldn't have it." Even so, Kim is a self-proclaimed minimalist and likes to keep things looking clean.

When Kim moved into the 900-square-foot loft, all the walls were white. She personalized the raw, open space by painting the bricks in different shades of silver and gray. It became a meditation for her each day, to unwind and paint individual bricks.
