The countdown is officially on: 12 days until I move into a gorgeous loft in Seattle! A few details about the space: exposed brick, giant windows, huge ceilings and more space than I’ve ever lived in before. To say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement. And, because I am ever the daydreamer, I started a Pinterest board appropriately titled Loft-tastic to house my inspiration for this new space. Here are some of my favorite finds so far!
While I’m still deciding on the type of bed I want to get, or if I even want to go ultra-boho and opt for the mattress-on-the-floor look, I definitely know that I want tons of texture for my bedding. I adore the modern-meets-granny vibe of this tufted coverlet and want to layer it over this deep navy Belgian linen duvet. Combined, the look is a bit his, a bit hers, and oh-so-cozy.
Speaking of things on the floor… I love this image from Elle Decoration as inspiration for storing my tons and tons of books. I want the space to feel lived in, casual, and very, very cool. Curated piles like this have always felt so chic to me.
I also want to have plants freaking everywhere, even more so than my San Francisco apartment.
I’ve never had a window in my bathroom before and soon I will! It sort of feels like the ultimate luxury, not gonna lie. I want to fill my bathroom with plant friends, just like this.

Then there’s the sofa situation… I’m going to have room for a full-sized sofa for the first time ever! I can’t express how excited I am to lounge on a sofa without bending my knees. And don’t even get me started about finally getting to nap on a sofa. Goodbye, loveseat, hello normal sized sofa. This feels like such a huge investment, one that I don’t want to make lightly. I find myself drawn to ultra-casual, low styles, with my ultimate dream being the Togo sofa (below). It’s a taddd bit out of my price range, so the hunt is officially on for options that have a similar boho, ’70s vibe. Then there’s the debate about color: I find myself split between bold saturated hues or friendlier, less ‘trendy’ neutrals. Do I want tan, sumptuous leather or rich color? Do I want my sofa to be a focal point, or do I want it to be a neutral base for tons of fun pillows? So many choices…
