Last fall we got to take a peek into Jessica's 200 square foot studio
to see how she managed to live in such tight quarters. Now, she's moved into a loft bedroom in a three bedroom home, and has a chance to spread out a bit. At least horizontally...
While she now has to contend with a definite vertical challenge, her space has opened up immensely. In a sunny attic loft, complete with two skylights and a beautiful view of the garden treetops, her furniture has a chance to breathe. A fresh coat of bright white paint and simple white curtains masking the closet (seen on Apartment Therapy here
) keeps this space feeling open and cheerful. Luckily, none of her furniture was over four feet tall, so the limited height didn't prevent her from bringing any pieces in. Because of the limited overhead space, she opted to keep her artwork on the floor, drawing the eye down and creating the illusion of more space above. By utilizing the floor space and stacking books instead of shelving them, she continues a low visual line of interest that helps to prevent the ceilings from feeling as low as they might.
