Lofty {Sweet} Dreams

So, David and I recently made a huge upgrade in our loft-- we finally, after nearly six years together- purchased a new bed frame. Really the timing is just right. We made do with what we had for so long-- the bed we had at loft, he had longer than he knew me. It was time. After a fun afternoon wandering through L.A.'s HD Buttercup-- a treasure trove of things for the home-- we found something that we knew would be just the right mix of industrial and classic- a solid wood and steel bed frame, almost exactly like the one below. (Pictured is the ''platform" version of the bed, so ours is slightly different.)
(Pardon the terrible Photoshopping!) Now, to make a few more improvements in this area of the loft. We already have a great set of three mid-century pieces- a long, low dresser with mirrors, a tall dresser and a night stand. Lots of art hand out in this area, too, but I think it'll need to come down in favor of a fresh coat of paint, taking the walls from white to a nice dove grey. I simply cannot get this Zig Zag Duvet Cover out of my mind, and I think the pale turquoise will complement both the bed frame and the grey walls. A little subtle subtle animation with the Zig Zag Rug in grey continues the theme. Since space is at a premium in such a small space, I dream of installing a floating wall shelf on the left side of the bed, for use as a night stand. Of course we'll need a little light to read by, so this Far & Wide wall sconce is the perfect style (however, not the perfect price.)
My vision for this corner of our loft feels calmer and less cluttered, already. Can't wait to get started painting!

Carren, I've become obsessed with it! I look at it every day, but choosing a color is the hard part. I want all three of them!
