home tour // my Seattle loft ‘living room’

Continuing the tour of my Seattle loft… today I’m sharing my living room area! By far, this is the space where I’ve spent the most time, mostly just hanging out and entertaining, but sometime working from the sofa. I wanted the space to feel casual with lots of black and white, but still a few pops of color.

These photos really help you get a sense of the overall space and how each of the areas flow into each other. I used the giant majesty palm and arc lamp to create a bit of separation for the living room, even though there aren’t any walls!

One of the biggest investment pieces I’ve ever made is that sofa. It took me about 4-5 months to finally pick one and I’m really pleased with the Blu Dot sofa I selected. It’s extremely comfortable (aka the perfect nap location) and fits two people perfectly for movie night. I also love love love that it has brass legs! Plus, the upholstery fabric is neutral enough to go with my new house, too.

As soon as I moved into the loft, I knew what it needed: a gallery wall. While I never got a chance to totally finish this one, I’m pretty please with how it came together regardless.

I also desperately needed storage for all of my books, so I went low, wide, and white for my tv stand. Bet you can’t guess how many books are hidden away in there…

Plus, here are a few more detail shots of the space, including the table I designed during my senior year of college!

      Hi Kristen, I’m sorry you felt this way about my space. Can you tell me a bit more about why you find the space to be ‘meh?’ Would love to understand your point of view better!
      Thanks,
      Joanna
