Loft Tour: Where We Rest Our Heads

Good morning, Honeybees! Thanks for indulging me a little yesterday while I was super excited to share my newly expanded wardrobe area in our home! It really is our baby and we like sharing the things we create! Today I'm going to share with you our "bedroom" area.  Our living areas really aren't lavish in any way and they're very underwhelming in comparison to my wardrobe!
In case you're not up to speed, Mike and I live in an industrious factory-converted loft in midtown Nashville, and it's only about 890 sq. feet. There are no separating walls/doors except to the bathroom (with the tiny tiny shower! Oh how I miss bubblebaths!) and then there's a sectioned off area beside the bathroom that has a curtain over it which we use as a storage/craft closet (and Mike's closet is in there, too, for everyone who keeps asking! haha I promise I don't make him store them in the car or anything!). We don't have a washer + dryer (what the closet place was intended for, but it's tall and small so we make due with it being for crafty stuff/Honeybean backstock! It'll never ever be shown on the blawg because it's always a disaster! Mike is a bit messy :P) Anyway! -- in our home we have a lofted bed area. We have 12' ceilings and our loft is about 4' tall. Our bed is on the loft, as well as 2 sidetables. We have twinkly lights hanging from the rafters and lots of artwork all around. It's a small loft, and there's only room for those things. We keep a large floor fan up there in the summer but it really just fits our queen-sized bed (with no frame)! We have sheer white curtains hanging on the three sides and they can be closed for more privacy if we have overnight guests. We usually just keep them draped the way you see below. 
The loft has stairs up the side and then there's black fabric attached to the bottom/side of the loft. The entire underside is storage (!!!). Mike stores all of his photography equipment, a lot of my junk and also his woodworking table. (Yes, we have a wood working table in our house. And very often the floor is littered with sawdust and you'll hear the jigsaw a'goin! That's the great thing about factory/concrete flooring! You can literally do anything in your home!) Everything just slides right under and you'd never ever even know it was there! It's perfect considering there's nowhere to hide anything in our house!
The large wall behind our bed isn't lime green like it may look! It's actually a really soft natural green. We were going for more of a light sage but didn't feel like painting that huge wall again! The big amazingly awesome arrow light hanging above our bed was a super sweet way-early wedding gift to be used for our big day! Ashley and Brad of Against The Woodgrain made it for us and we are ecstatic! It's the most perfect thing ever. It seriously ties our little "room" together so well. It's naturally so very dark in our home so this light really really helps! (You can order your own here! They're on sale right now, too!) I made the random pom-poms and paper fans hanging all around. The artwork over my bedside table is by Ryan Berkley. I love him because he paints a hefty amount of sharks! Then there's our Ikea globe lamps, vintage typewriter and a watercolor painting gifted to me by the ever so sweet Miss Ella Masters! She painted this for me to celebrate the Honeybean Dream! Mike's nightstand has his Ikea lamp and a vintage orange tv (which still works!) that we snagged at a yardsale last year for $5! 
Our bedding is new (finally!). We did have a Shabby Chic duvet on the bed but the girls got the best of that one! We picked up this Ralph Lauren "Yorkshire Rose" comforter this past week. It's girly enough to please me and the green is neutral enough not to make Mike go into a tailspin. Win/win. Random cutesy pillows and thrifted pillow shams. I like girly things! And of course our bed is always filled with sleepy pups. The adorable paintings of Pipkin and Georgia were done for me by the lovely Carla of Rosita Mustache Studio! You can commission your own here! I promise they're worth every penny!

Well, that'll about do it I guess! I'll definitely share more "peeks" from around our home, but I'm undecided if I'll do a full tour of the rest of it. It really is rather underwhelming. We have twinklelights hanging/wrapped around the steel supports in our house, but the rest is just whatever. Maybe I'll feel inspired to reorganize some more stuff and shoot it anyway! If I end up repainting one of the walls in the bathroom then maybe I'll share that, too! (Mike let me go all out girly in the bathroom. It's currently light blue and decorated with white accents. I have some beautiful light pink paint though and I want to paint one wall. The "decor" in the bathroom is all white cats haha! It's a tiny/dingy little bathroom but we make it work!

Thanks for taking a peek into our little room! What's your favorite part of your room?

  6. I love the color of your walls. That's similar to what I was looking to paint our bathroom to brighting it up. The artwork is beautiful. Last month I decided to change our bedroom theme to more of an artsy look. I stopped buying those picture printed canvas paintings and started investing in real ones. It definitely makes a difference in room and not to mention, looks a lot better.

  7. Wow! I love pretty much everything shown, but especially your pillows, the arrow light, and the glimpse I caught of the pink couch. I have the sudden urge to move away from this dump and get a new place!

  8. Gorgeous! It's so you! And that pink couch is to die for!

  14. Ooof, seriously stunning...And it's fun getting all these little tours, I'm trying to piece the layout of your place in my head but it's tricky!

    My favorite part of my room is my chalkboard wall. One whoooole wall. It's ideal for to-do lists but mainly my parents and boyfriend just scribble nonsense on it :)

  15. What an adorable little loft!!! I love all the vintage stuff surrounding the bed but hands down the giant arrow is my favorite!!


    A Sweet Release

  19. Seriously in love with your bedroom <3
    The favourite piece in my bedroom is the antique mirror I inherited when my great-grandmother died - she had some amazing stuff including a vintage handbag and faux fur coat - all take pride in my room now :)

  20. What a unique place to live. I really like how to bed is elevated. I miss baths too. I've been living in apartments/houses the last 2 1/2 yrs that only have small showers and it stinks big time. I showed my bf pictures of your closet space yesterday and he was blown away by your quantity of shoes haha. But I do have to thank you because after seeing it he said, "I wanna give you a big closet area one day because you deserve something like that too". SCORE! :)

  22. What a cute space! I really love the arrow light and the bedding.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's actually amazing! Some of the pictures are so perfect it looks like a film set not your actual house!

    I love the idea of having a loft apartment and the way you've raised the bed to separate it slightly from the rest of the room is genius.

    Absolutely in love with that arrow light! So badass!!

  25. aw i like the green! i think it looks really fresh & pretty, especially with your bedding.

    i am curious to know what part of midtown you live in! i used to live in midtown - on broadway & lyle, next to blue bar & jj's market - but i now live in east nashville. i still work in midtown, though. i didn't even know we had lofts in midtown. i thought that was more of a downtown/germantown thing.

  34. Well, you're lucky. My husband would never allow me to have a girly bed. But, I can't complain, he has a great style for decoration only a bit minimal. My favorite part of our bedroom is the bed, we have caramel sheets and white puffy spread. So we call it the caramel marshmellow paradise. It's almost a mission impossible to get out of it.

  35. this is NOT your bedroom. i am SO jealous! it's gorgeous and lovely and perfect! i want this room!!

  37. What a lovely space!! I've always wanted to live in a loft, they seem so fun! And you've decorated it wonderfully. Hmm my room is pretty tiny but my favorite part is probably this one wall we have covered in maps =]

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your room is so fantastic! I really love the arrow over the bed, it is such a nice and unique touch. I love how comfy your bed looks and I like your use of color in the comforter and pillows. Christmas lights make everything better, just a personal opinion (not shared by my fiance ho-hum). I really love the typewriter too, so cute.

    I love, love, love your room. I wish I had a space like this, it is just fabulous. I would probably just sit and stare at it lovingly if I were you haha.

  53. what an amazing space!! My husband and I (and our little boy), live in a loft conversion also. They didn't really keep the "industrial" feel in ours though (which is kinda a bummer)... instead they went more of a modern route. I love the space... still high ceilings and open concept, but no concrete/exposed beams etc. Also, TOTALLY jealous of the little loft space for the bed (only our neighbour ended up with a tower space in his unit)!! Anyways, love what you have done with it (and major "closet" envy... right now I have one sad wheeling cloths rack in a corner and pile of bins stuffed with my stuff haha).

    ReplyDelete
  54. I really love how you decorated the place. Inspirational!

  55. OMG I love it!! It looks like the perfect getaway!

    I especially love the dresser. Lofts are a little scary for me, decorating wise, but you put your personal stamp on it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Aw!! Your room is amazing!! I love it!! Especially that arrow and typewriter! <3 I'm in love!

    ReplyDelete
  57. oh my god!! Can we swap homes please, I haven't seen a more beautiful space ever. Ooh too lovely!

    Love that light up arrow, so want to incorporate more funky elements like that into our space. Amazing!
