The room I’m living in has all sorts of funky architectural elements, which I absolutely love, but they make it necessary to get a little creative when decorating! I’ve been obsessed (even more than usual) with Pinterest lately, and I’ve found lots of awesome inspiration when it comes to decorating loft/attic rooms. I think in my room I plan to do kind of an “old fashioned glam” look, with darker furniture along with gold accents, like the vintage trunk I found on Craigslist and this mirror that I ended up scoring from Ballard Designs (it was 20% off and shipping was free–still pricy, but a great deal!). I had always thought I would prefer the silver, but Danielle‘s picture (below) inspired me to choose gold. I think having golds mixed in will really help brighten up the space, as I’m a bit worried about getting enough sunlight (I have skylights and then doors across the room, but with the addition of the wall, those will be blocked off).
As a refresher: here is what my room looks like without anything in it (and there’s another side that isn’t pictured, plus the wall with a door and window have since been built, so this is really just a rough idea).
I’m planning to put my bed against the big white wall shown, and then there is a little nook where I can keep my dresser (my campaign baby probably won’t be able to make it up the stairs, so she’ll have to stay in the living room–thankfully Carrie is a fan of her, too!).
On the other side of the room, I’m planning on setting up a desk/vanity area and I’m not sure what else yet. I love to move pieces around from time to time, but it’ll be harder in this space! I’m hoping when I go over there again on Friday I’ll have a better sense of where I’d like things to go.
However, I’m absolutely loving how all of these fellow loft-dwellers arranged their spaces, so I had to share them here:

Also, I was browsing the other day and came across this quote from Emmy Rossum, which truly says it best (I seriously freaked out in the best way when I saw it., because it truly captures the vibe I’m going for in my new room, haha. I’ve even asked my mom if I could borrow some fun family photographs, and she’s going to lend me one of her mother dressed up for a wedding when she was a little kid over 80 years ago–love it!). How beautiful is Emmy’s place?
