Loft Tour | Bedroom

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! loft tour

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 loft tourOpposite 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. loft tourThe 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. loft tourMy 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. loft tour

Because space was limited in the bedroom, I chose to do a built-in bed/closet. loft tour

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! loft tourThe flanking closets are simply IKEA closets wrapped in oak plywood with custom doors. loft tour loft tourThe polyhedron lighting is from Restoration Hardware…we girlied it up with a hot pink electrical cord. loft tour

The spotted carpet squares came from Habitat For Humanity loft loft tourI 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.

  1. Oh, it’s so lovely, Angela! No wonder you had a bidding war on your hands. I can see why you struggled to let it go, but now someone else can enjoy the beauty of your vision!

  2. Let me echo what Kathy said–It’s obvious why the buyer wanted the rugs and furnishings left. You did such a great job (as did Chris!).

  3. I’m so glad you are sharing this because that is one fantastic space.

  4. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something
    enlightening to read?

  5. Oh, how I love this place. once again, girl… you have SKILLZ.

  6. Oh my good gravy! I’m not sure where I have been (obviously Mars or something) but I’ve just stumbled upon you blog of awesomeness and literally had to stop and pour me a glass of wine to continue reading after I saw the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen… Your loft bathroom fixtures. They are the stuff my dreams are made of! I think we might actually be twins separated at birth…
    I can’t wait to see more of your designs!
