I don’t really understand where this summer went. My goal was to have the loft settled by September 1 and, hello, that is pretty damn imminent. I’m all set with my furniture, but now my biggest priority is layering on all of those special details. Rugs, art, plants… the good stuff! I’ve had my eyes on a few special additions to my loft lately, starting with these gorgeous textiles by Susan Connor. I recently splurged on a super-adult sofa in a gorgeous shade of pale grey, so now I’m hunting for the perfect textiles to make it feel a bit casual bohemian.
I also really love her linen throws! Can you imagine wrapping sumptuous linen around your shoulders?? That’s sort of what my dreams are made of…
Then, there is art… Because I live in a loft, my ceilings are quite tall, making a gallery wall a MUST. You wanna know a secret? I’ve never had a gallery wall before and the thought of making one scared the bejesus out of me. None of the pieces I’ve collected over the years go together — everything is a one-off and totally different. I recently decided that I need to pick ONE piece and build around that. I’m quite enamored with this abstract painting by Lauren Packard, especially because it’s from Minted and they have such amazing (and affordable) framing options. This might just be my statement piece…

And while we’re on art, I’m also in love with these mixed media pieces by Xochi Solis on Leif. The colors are bold and bright, while the layering of materials and techniques really speaks to me. The key will be picking one that goes with my statement piece, huh?
And then there’s my houseplant situation. If I could, I’d just have All Of The Plants Ever. When I discovered these architectural, tall plant stands from Forage Modern Workshop, I instantly fell in love. I’m thinking a pair of these will do juuuust fine by the window.
I still have so many more ideas for my loft… stay tuned! I’m even hoping to be able to show you guys some photos soon!
