With just over 1000 square feet, the loft had plenty of room for me to carve out the spaces we wanted within the big open box. We planned for the bedroom in the middle of the space, with the studio on the window side and the living/kitchen area on the other. Chris built the room divider, with wire-brushed pine planks on the outside perimeter. Chris, by the way, did all the build-out work here and did an amazing job!
FLOR tiles, tediously cut by hand (this is before they offered diagonal cuts!) run down the hall to the bedroom and studio. The new loft owners requested that all rugs stay with the purchase.Opposite of the bedroom door, beautifully made in a custom-stained oak by Chris, is the vintage bar mirror we used to cover the drywall patch in the brick wall.
The mirror wasn’t quite big enough to cover the drywall so Chris built a surround…which I never got around to painting after he primed it. Whoops.
My brother Ron made the metal frames for the ceiling pendants–they are huge at 24″ diameter and 36″ tall–and Bill, my drapery fabricator, made the removable canvas shades. These pendants make the loft absolutely magical at night.
The bolster pillow is made from a vintage embroidered sheet I found at the Round Top Antique Fair. With my monogram and birds…I had to have it!The flanking closets are simply IKEA closets wrapped in oak plywood with custom doors.
The spotted carpet squares came from Habitat For Humanity Restore.I miss that bedroom! It always felt so cozy snuggled in with all those pillows and a pile of shelter mags at night…and some chocolate, usually. It was a dream.
