Client Loft

I'm excited to share a handful of pictures one of my Austin clients was nice enough to send my way. We tackled the design of their loft long-distance and I think she did a killer job pulling everything together!
We worked on the picture wall before I moved to Dallas but that's the only component we had completed in the space. After picking their brains a little, here's what they said they wanted from the space...comfortable, lounge-like, a place for the kids to do their school work, open space, surface for game playing, a place we can "live" in. I sent a handful of ideas their way and the above mood board was the winner.

These are the only 'before' shots I could dig up. Their loft overlooks the first story living room with a beautiful view of their pool.

I took this shot (way back when) as the spaces were being painted, but apparently never turned around to take a picture of the other side of the room. darn!

And, onto the fun part...
We used lots of "transitional seating," aka stools and the bench. These are light enough to move wherever the action is, yet small enough to keep the floor space open for "lounging" the majority of the time.

 I'm a big fan of these chairs. The color is so rich and really ties in the beautiful hues in the pictures across the room.

Since the desks can be seen from the downstairs living room, we opted to use lucite so they 'disappear.'

A big thanks to my client for taking the time to photograph the loft and allowing me to share your home!

So much goodness going on in here - but first, it looks exactly like it fits their needs! I love those lucite desks, and the great statement the large photos make! That rug looks so cozy, and the oversized pattern is awesome! You always find the most unique pieces and do such a great job combining them!
