This industrial-eclectic loft is the home of designer and artist Alina Preciado and her two cats, situated in a 1800s industrial building in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. The 2,000 square foot loft with one bedroom and one bathroom mixes old and new pieces together, with findings that Preciado has picked up from her travels to places like Japan, Spain, India and the Middle East. The designer imports handmade goods for her business, Dan Gitane. “Dar” is Arabic for “home” and “gitane” is French for “gypsy”, which sums up Preciado’s personality. The loft was originally a woodshop, which has divots and scratches on the flooring, which has been preserved for its history.
The loft features an incredible flow with an open and airy floor plan, huge windows and high ceilings that keeps the space well lit. The home also has a hammock which Preciado spends a lot of time on, as well as a trapeze bar, perfect for stretching. The living room was a vintage leather sofa from the 1960s, the leaning ladder was obtained from a warehouse. The living area also has a large wood-burning stove with a double-insulated chimney, which is in keeping with the industrial theme as well as providing plenty of warmth in the winter months. A neat tip that Preiado does with her stove is place citrus peels on top and left the smell permeate through the home.

In the study "Generational Differences in Young Adults’ Life Goals, Concern of Others, and Civic Orientation," researchers say that Gen Y-ers exhibit an increase in anxiety, depression and mental health issues compared to previous generations.
But these complications are worst in women because of the added difficulty of balancing work and family.
"A millennial female burnout syndrome is emerging," says Erica Dhawan, an MBA student at MIT and MPA student at Harvard, specializing in Gen Y, co-founder of the Galahads: the Secret Society for Kickass Women and a speaker at this year’s World Economic Forum at Davos.
In fact, they’re burning out by the age of 30, writes Larissa Faw in Forbes:
Today, 53 percent of corporate entry-level jobs are held by women … Men are twice as likely as women to advance at each career transition stage. One rationale is that men are more likely than women to do things that help their personal well being at work, thus negating burnout, according to the Captivate Network. Men are 25 percent more likely to take breaks throughout the day for personal activities, 7 percent more likely to take a walk, 5 percent more likely to go out to lunch, and 35 percent more likely to take breaks “just to relax.”
According to MTV’s new “No Collar Workers” study, Millennials have a real desire to connect with their work and would “rather have no job than a job they hate.” With this need for a sense of purpose and technology playing a major role, it’s easy for young people to work around the clock without even realizing it.
The lines are blurred between work and play because young people want to enter careers that they enjoy, Dhawan told us. Hence, if they enjoy their careers, they’ll most likely put more time into it. In fact, college-educated Gen Y-ers can have a nine-to-five job and also have their five-to-nine job where they’re freelancing or working on launching an organization.
And Millennial women are feeling it the most.
Today is an important day: for the first time since we adopted him in July, Ezra willingly crawled into one of our laps! (And as I type this, he’s now sitting in mine 🐱)
If anyone is having a bad day, just spend 15 minutes and enjoy this guy’s wisdom after losing his wisdom teeth.
I guarantee you’ll be smiling by the end of it.
im getting my wisdom teeth taken out over christmas break and i just hope i am at least 25% as great as this guy
Oh my god I haven’t laughed this hard in ages
