I finally have all of my stuff unpacked and put away in my new urban living space! (Quite a bit had to go to storage….) Now, I am focused on the best furniture layout for my small loft. Here is a diagram of my loft and the property management’s suggested furniture arrangement:
I had the movers set the furniture in this layout originally, but it did not work for me at all. There was very little space between the couch and the kitchen cabinets, and even less to the television stand. The best feature in this space is the beautiful Southern California view, so I oriented the living room to face out to the patio. Here is the current layout that I am trying:
I just ordered a new, low-profile couch from West Elm, but have held-off on purchasing anything else until I solidify the layout. Go to my urban living loft inspiration board to get a feel for the direction that I am going. I am calling this decorating style ‘rustic-modern.’ What do you think? What would you change?
