Loft Updates

After we added the staggered wainscoting to our loft's wall, we made some additional updates to the room.

Staggered wainscoting




We swapped our Alvine Ruta rug out for the Nate Berkus rug that used to be in our living room.

Loft updates




We layered a cowhide rug on top of it and built a console table.

It's an update on the $18 console table we built 2 years ago. I'll be sharing the full tutorial with you next week!

We kept our DIY coffee table but updated the styling of it.

I added my knock off pillow covers to our olive chairs.

My shy sidekick wanted to be part of the updates too :)

I found that gold snake for $15 at HomeGoods. It's identical to the $40 on Z Gallerie is selling! This is the third time I've found an identical Z Gallerie item at HomeGoods which leads me to believe they either buy from the same companies or Z Gallerie sells their old items to HomeGoods.

We also swapped our gray drapes out for the white ones that are in the rest of our home. We also raised our curtain rod up to the ceiling.

Chesterfield


Aside from the staggered wainscoting, all of the updates were simple and I'm considering the room complete! Well, kind of. I'd like to find some new art but that can wait until the perfect piece comes along :)

Let's take a look back at where our loft started 2 years ago:

It took a while for the room to come together but I'm really happy with the outcome!

  3. Love it! Love it! Love it! I definitely love how you used your rug from your living room and placed it in the loft area! I'm having a hard time deciding which area of your home is my fave.

    1. Awww, thanks Tangela! I love that rug so much, I'm so happy we found a place for it. The same rug that's in our dining room will be moving to our bedroom as soon as we order its replacement :)

  5. So lovely! I'd hang out there all the time, staring at that blue wall if I lived in your house. Which I just might. You have plenty of room for me, because I'll just sleep in the loft ;)
