Name: Adam Pogue + Daniel Aston (their dog Otto and two cats Sissy Spacek and Motorhead) Location: Downtown — Los Angeles, CA Size: 936 square feet Years lived in: 1.5 years — rent Adam and Daniel have developed the perfect mix of bohemian and craft in their downtown loft. Everything down to the hand stitched couch is thoughtfully designed and displays example after example of their incredible DIY fortitude. With two cats and a small dog, this family enjoys a bright and cheerful space with all the benefits of downtown LA right at their fingertips. Small Cool Contest. I knew the minute I saw their DIY Chevron striped wall, that they had created something original. On the second floor of a historic loft building, they overlook a busy DTLA street and reap the benefits of a sun filled space from all the vast window light. Their diverse design approach to their loft lends itself creatively to their handmade goods; the amazing couch, their refinish on the dresser behind the couch, the hand painted pattern on the wall, all the sewn goods (such as the duvet cover). Adam explains that even his planters and hanging plants give purpose and art to their home. More traditonal loft features that stand out are the use of the bookcase to create a divider from bed and living room area, the super modern kitchen and the free standing island dining set. Not only does this space seem like a very warm place to live, but great for entertaining and visitors as well. Enjoy!
