Mae & Mike's Renovated Factory Loft
Name:Mae & Mike
What I Love About My Home
Our loft is in of a renovated factory in South Boston, and we love the exposed brick, huge windows, industrial feel and open design. The best part that whoever designed this building recognized the limited space and "built up," using ceiling track, pendant and sconce lighting (eliminating the need for floor and table lamps) and creating a ton of vertical storage. The large closets and above-closet storage help us stay organized and keep our space open for friends and guests (and allowing us a fun, ladder-accessable pillow fort!) Organization is crucial since our loft doubles as my home art studio and office.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Mike and I recently graduated college and this is the first "real" apartment for both of us, so the biggest challenge was figuring out how to use the furniture we had and a very low budget to create a home we enjoyed being in. We did this by using entirely second-hand furniture and some DIY elements, such as the coffee table, which we made using Mike's college coffee table and a vintage barn door I found and refinished. We both have a similar idea of our perfect space (a funky, laid back, jungly hangout) so we committed to only bringing in color and decor which fit that vision.
