Loft inspired

Briefly, we’re going to be moving shortly… and be in a space much like this size for some reasons I can’t go into right now.

Like it… but oh so not like this! But I can DREAM!

I LOVE the white, and the white … and on the white…

Loft studio with an all white theme

And the brick wall on one side is kinda awesome too!

And would be so funky to paint random boards a soft, different colour! I’m loving pink!

Or blue.

And the sliding bathroom door would look awesome in this glossy bright bright yellow!

And since the small studio space we’re looking at does not have much storage (and we’re so spoilt here in our current home for built-in storage) it would be cool to have these white Ikea shelves installed above the kitchen counter.

Simple white floating shelves

Oh happy happy space… in my head, at least!

Update: In a few months, we’re moving back to my husband’s hometown to fulfill a dream (more on that later) and one of the options was to move our 184m2 (1,959 squared foot) home into 40.5m2 (436 squared foot) studio with a small, low loft at the back of the in law’s yard… but the romance is over and we’re not doing it. (We plan to save our sanity and marriage instead!)

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
