Lofty Ideas

Something about lofts has always fascinated me. The open space, the minimalism, the industrial character all just attract me to these spaces.

I have this strange, almost romantic dream of buying one, setting up a couch in the corner of a huge open space and just living. No other furniture. Well maybe a few bookshelves and a rolling clothing rack. Its probably not the most practical idea, but it would be something.

I really love the loft pictured here. Especially the booksheft spanning two floors.However, I wish it was just a little less perfect. Maybe an exposed brick wall or some furniture with character and life.

One of my friends lives in a converted loft that was once a cork factory that had burned, but not completely. They had to sand down the charred beams that are still visible in his home. I love that kind of character.

I completely agree with you. Lofts are so cool. Now, if only I can convince others of the same ideas.
