Loft Tour: Twinklelight City

I feel so thankful to live in such a creative space. I get to work somewhere that constantly inspires and surprises me (sometimes those surprises are spiders, but let's overlook that!). We've taken a glorified basement style loft and transformed it into a place we call home. Twinklelights everywhere, because why not right?! Sometimes it almost feels like we live in a planetarium.

I can't wait to have a normal sized hot water heater and a bath tub, but for now I'm happy with our concrete floors and "everything is dusty within 15 minutes of wiping it down" home sweet home. It fits our current situation and we're happy to have a roof over our heads.

The lighting is far from ideal so it's almost impossible to get decent photos but these will serve as a little taste of our home. Excuse the random boxes, giant softbox, and plentiful Honeybean shoes... our home is our office and our storage shed! We've got an always-stocked bar, wicker furniture perfect for a garden party, and an antique pink couch that I can't seem to get rid of. (It's kind of like the girls' couch [obviously!] but I'm hoping to have it reupholstered eventually!) Home sweet home, here you have it! xo

Are you decorating for the holidays?

  6. I always meant to ask if your floors were always cold. I imagined it cold. and I miss bathtubs too. In my future house, it will have a bathtub I comfortably fit in. But like you, I'm grateful it is what it is.

  10. The twinkle lights are SO magical. I love the pictures of your furbabies that you snuck in at the end too. They're so sweet! Obviously they're quite happy at your home-sweet-home too.

  14. Lovely! Some of my favorite memories are from when we lived in a room in a very crowded house D:

  15. I love my loft but I have the same problem, ice cold concrete floors and constant dust bunnies! The upside is the ability to break down and build up as you please. Ours is everything from a play area for the mastiffs, to a music studio, to a proudly displayed shoe closet :) its the first place we've lived that's felt like home

  16. I love all the lights!! :) I just got some for my dressing room a little while ago. They hang over the top of my dresser mirror and look so pretty at night! I can't wait to have my house all decorated and just the way I like it. Hopefully it will be all done early next year and I can finally take some photos!

  28. I am majorly jealous of all your twinkle lights. Stupid dorm rules. I want my twinkles! Oh well. I've put up a tiny little white tree with teeny ornaments in my dorm's common area, and that'll do for now.

  29. I LOVE your place! To me, it looks perfect, I love seeing what people do with one room/loft places. I'm just sitting here at my computer thinking how beautiful it looks.

    You can never go wrong with twinkle lights, IMHO.

  39. Cute space! I like how you'd made an industrial loft look so cozy. My friend is looking for a place in Nashville like this...I'm hoping she can find (and afford) something similar. If you know of anywhere off the top of your head, I'd love to pass on info to her :)

    Also, I love your chest/bar. And your babies always look so adorable. I don't know how you don't just sit and stare at them all day...I would never get any work done!
