Lofty Heights

It definitely takes a certain kind of person and a certain kind of design to pull off a loft. Sometimes I love it, sometimes...not so much. But there is just a certain cool vibe from those soaring ceilings and wide open spaces...







And then there is this Manhattan loft that I put into my lust list a while back...le *sigh*...she is gorgeous, no? (c:

How rad is all that exposed wood beam and the leftover huge industrial equipment from when it was a factory??? Seriously, you can't just design that kind of character.

Have you ever thought about how fun it would be to live in a loft? Kind of like a ginormous grown up tree house...

Or is that just me? (c:
