The view inspires me. Much of the loft is built around the windows. From the bed I can watch the morning traffic coming over the bridge and ponder my 15 step commute and at night I can literally count stars. And finally, artwork with emotion inspires me.
Design Tip:Every time one new item comes in one goes out. I have found that low profile furniture that is either elevated or has an airy base raises the ceiling and continues the floor. Chilewich floor mats have changed my life when it comes to keeping up with dog hair and dirt.
