Eccentric Design House tour

October 24, 2014 by Leave a Comment

Ready for another Dreamy Dwelling Home Tour!?!  Today I’m sharing a fun Eccentric Design House Tour that I think you’re going to love.  Yesterday I showed you my new Schoolhouse Lights and so I thought it was totally fitting to show you a fabulous Historic School House Turned Stunning Lofts, in our country’s capitol, Washington DC.  (brief platform moment — get out and vote).  The style throughout is unexpected and inspiring. 

Historic School House Turned Stunning Lofts

Here’s loft number one.

My love for schoolhouse light fixtures continues into this house.  They fit this space perfectly.

The spacial planning in this loft is great.  I love how the use of large area rugs helps define the spaces and allows you to visualize the rooms.

And loft number two.

I love all these windows and plants in the main areas of this loft.

After the holidays, I want to add several more plants to my kitchen and family room, these are perfect.

And then there’s loft number three.

Another creative addition, fitting for every wall in this loft to be framed with a chalkboard.

The paint is such a great color, reminds me of Restoration Hardware’s Silver Sage.

 The kitchen is very industrial.

Let’s check out loft number four.

Great roman shades on these windows.

And I love the pops of aqua and red.  I appreciate a design that doesn’t completely shy away from color.
