This is the kind of place I would imagine making for myself if I ever get myself into a respectable, aka lucrative, career. I don’t know why but I LOVE lofts. Only personally, I’d put the bed in the loft area for comfy reading under the skylight. And forget the flat, rigid, mattress. I’d have me a big, poofy, cushion.
Also, my place wouldn’t have brickwork inside the house. Yuck.
