Wow, this is quite the bittersweet post to write. Late last week, I moved out of my gorgeous Seattle loft and into my first home. I couldn’t be more excited about the house itself (and location… and quiet… and potential), but it was really hard to leave a space that is so architecturally stunning. Prior to living here, I always wanted to live in a loft, especially amongst the exposed bricks. Well, for the past year I got to! This week I’m going to treat you guys to a home tour of my Pioneer Square loft with a different ‘section’ of the loft each day. First up, my bedroom!
So technically, the loft doesn’t have a bedroom. After all, it’s just one, giant open space.
Instead, I used a dresser and rug to help define the space (more on that here) and make it feel separated from the rest of the space. I picked up this mid-century style dresser from Craigslist and added a few of my treasures to the top. I stuck with a mostly white palette to keep things airy — one thing I learned from living with brick is that things can feel too dark VERY quickly.
As soon was I moved in, I KNEW exactly where to hang my vintage naked lady painting — above the bed. She looks glorious juxtaposed against the exposed brick, while also setting the mood for my bedroom, don’t you think?
I tend to prefer super casual, rumpled bedding so linen is always a favorite. And these custom Rebecca Atwood euro shams are definitely one of my most prized possessions! I love what they add to any mix-n-match bedding look I do.
Nightstands have always felt tricky for me. Sean and I have totally different styles, so I wanted each side of the bed to reflect that. Mine is definitely girlier and shinier thanks to this silver end table. I always keep a big stack of books there and tend to read by the light of my salt lamp before I go to bed. The light is soft and glowy, definitely not harsh.
Then, on Sean’s side we went with an octagonal wooden block that doubles as both a table and a stool. The rough-hewn look is perfect for my mountain-loving bf.
I’ll be sharing even more of the Seattle loft home tour this week, so be sure to stay tuned!
