I’ve had some long distance friends ask for photos of our loft. Plus I just wanted to make sure I have record of it because this is probably the coolest place we’ll ever live. It’s just a little studio (oddly enough it’s about the same square footage as our last apartment — a 2 bedroom), but it sure does have character.
You know what else has character? That little red puppy you’ll see in many of the photos. She was following me everywhere and finally gave up to take a nap once I started on the living room. (Which was the last destination since Mr. Ulmer was watching the Packers game.)
Anyway, our home is still a work in progress, of course. And honestly, I have no idea how long we’ll be living here. It’ll probably be at least another year after our lease is up then maybe, one day, on to something permanent (or at least with bedrooms again). That is if I can commit to staying in Wisconsin, which I’m just not ready to do quite yet.
You may notice our design aesthetic is very Ikea meets Antique Store which I think works out pretty well in a newly renovated 1800s warehouse. Our building is beautiful, but confusing. You wouldn’t really know people live there until you are inside one of the lofts. Every time we have food delivered the delivery person asks if it’s a hotel. EVERY. TIME. Nevertheless, I find it to be an extraordinarily cozy home and if I could triple the space and add some bedrooms, I would live there forever.
Enjoy this look into my tiny home.
My Favorite Bedroom Pieces & Where to Find Them
My Favorite Living Room Pieces & Where to Find Them
Bea’s Food & Water Bowls — Anthropologie (I feel like these need an explanation: Bea hated her metal bowls. I happened to buy these bowls to hold fruit in the fridge. I was sick of Bea barking at her bowls or not eating/drinking because of them so I figured I’d try these out and she loves them. I guess she just wanted something more stylish.)
Coffee Table — Antique (There are so many similar tables in antique stores.)
Metal Chairs — Target
Ombre Throw — West Elm
Bar — Marshall’s
