La Living

By - May 23, 2008 (Updated: November 28, 2014)

Many of you have asked for some “sneak peak” pics of La Loft. The only room so far that is presentable is the living room. Keep in mind that it’s not totally done yet (still need to replace some of the old orange stuff with new red items) but here’s the first look:

Loft_0002.jpgThe above image is taken looking straight down from the upper level, where my office is. As you can see, Orange has already made herself at home.

Loft_0004.jpgThis one is taken from the staircase (which still doesn’t have a railing). You have a better view of the terrace and the area behind the plants is where the stairs into our loft are located.

Loft_0005.jpgJust for fun, here’s an “artsy” shot out the skylight above my desk. Interesting contrast of old and new…

Loft_0008.jpgAnd finally, this is the view out the skylight behind me… From nowhere in our loft can you actually see the street… it’s a bit strange really. I think we’ll have to set up a webcam πŸ™‚

    looks amazing. Small but very fun, and the furniture looks great. Good thing, eh?
    I think you’ll love it.
    So, Madonna in September, hope you enjoy.
    I am going to Bonnie Raitt in August. Can’t wait.
