The Current State of Our 800 Square Foot Attic Loft | Grand Rapids Home Tour Part 7

So, the loft.

Well! We've had ALL sorts of plans for the loft, including but not limited to:

  • Add a bathroom and kitchenette to make an apartment for extra income/long term guests

  • Make it into a GIANT office for LF Designs!!!

  • Add a bathroom and create a luxurious primary bedroom and ensuite

  • Concert hall/ballroom (there are seriously houses in our neighborhood that have ballrooms in the attic...GOALS)

SO, which route to choose, right? Since we're not completely clear on our five year plan, and since we'd rather travel than put 30K+ into renovating the space, I decided to start out using solely pieces I already owned.

The MCM sofa below was a Craigslist find from a while back. I bought it for a staging client, and it ended up in Larry's office for a spell.

The two club chairs above were bought for our first house and they lived in our living room until I purchased the turkish-style rug. They were fighting too much, so I had to separate them! And the makeshift coffee table used to be in our living room. It's literally two crates with a slab of wood on top.

The headboard (below) was a garage sale find and bedding used to be in our master until we upgraded to a king size, and the stools on either side of the bed were items we received from our wedding registry.

The colorful large painting to the left of the window was a gift for our wedding by my friend Sammy (check out her art on insta). It was also in the living room previously, and also fighting with the rug, so now it gets to shine as the one bit of color in this all white space. And the tapestry hanging in the nook was also a gift at our wedding.

The MCM plant stand in the "plant nook" (below) is a vintage find from Changing Times in Grandville. I've found a lot of really stellar pieces there! The chair was a prop from my mom's photo studio, and the curtains were at one time in our living room.

I ended up making a few budget purchases for the space to hold us over and make the space functional/cozy until we decide what we're going to do with our lives! These purchases included two rugs—one in the living area and one beneath the dining set—the dining table and benches, and TV stand.
