Big City Digs: Inviting, Industrial Loft in Minneapolis

With polished cement ceilings and metallic light fixtures, this industrial loft in Minneapolis, Minn., is full of character. To ensure that the interior would feel warm and inviting, designer Mary Rossi balanced those raw materials with soft rugs and used low-level, contemporary furniture to create a clear line of sight to the windows.
