Creative Loft: The Plan with Houzz

A few weeks ago, I rolled out the inspiration for my creative loft space. The past month we’ve been busy, sourcing items, and prepping for our last phases of change. Our custom 8 foot desk has been installed and we absolutely love it. Today we’re partnering with Houzz and sharing our plan behind the design.

Earlier this year during a trip to Portland I stayed in the most stunning birch loft. This space has served as the inspiration for this before and after, governing my choice in materials. I loved their use of plywood throughout the space and the ways they elevated a common substrate. Last year in my room, I installed a single piece of plywood as an affordable headboard option on the wall. With the desk, the choice was simple. An expanse of space and continuing the line of the plywood in a way that was visually appealing. There was only one option to keep aesthetics and clean lines- a built-in desk attached to the wall. We commissioned a friend to build the desk and it is stunning.

For texture, we wanted to mix things up. Keeping the investment pieces neutral we wanted to add a rug, pillows, and throw that are bold in statement and lush in texture. There’s something about the juxtaposition of clean lines and handmade textiles where the contrast is stunning. Pulling colors from the rug, we chose deep blues as the continuous palette throughout.

To add a bit more personality to the room, we’ll be using succulents and airplants for greenery. Adding candles and rose gold accessories, bringing form and function to the table. We’ve been crushing hard on midcentury modern planters and can’t wait to add this desktop version to our workspace.
