Name: Valerie & Andew
Location: Marina Del Rey, California
My husband and I rent a 840 square foot loft in the Arts District, of Marina Del Rey, California. We surprisingly found our home on Craigslist and moved in right before we got married. We both love the space because it is clean, bright, and airy, with wooden beams and hardwood floors, which add the right amount of warmth.
We managed to create distinction without having any walls, by using large furniture items — our favorite being a huge wooden bookshelf by Live Style Designs.
We've had some furniture pieces custom made for us, making the space feel even more special. These custom pieces also serve as multi-functional; my favorite being our bed with hidden storage.
Thanks, Valerie & Andew! See more of their aesthetic on their blog.
