Surely one of my bowls will fly out of my hands, hit my husband in the head, and my garlic and peels go all over the kitchen.

Regardless, I'm totally trying this. Can't have too much garlic IMO.

WOW. What college kids are able to come up with this kind of thing? I'm super impressed. I was not that skilled in college to "maximize my floor space" or "use rugs to divide the space." But I was in the business school - not industrial design. But still. I'm giving high fives to you girls.

That short blue border is very strange. But I kind of like it.

Photoshopped, maybe. But I do love how this shows you can take what looks like a BLAH dingy sofa and loveseat and totally make them work and look new and fresh. Very inspiring!

What does the wall look like inside the bedroom? Is there room for a barn door? We have one in our loft, the wall inside our bedroom is long and empty, so it's perfect for a barn door when it's open. We are still totally open on the top though (you just have a sliver, our entire bedroom is open at the top) so we get a lot of light but it works fine for us. We have dark curtains in the bedroom and the light from the living room comes across the top of the wall and it's easier to wake up in the morning. But I've lived there 6 years. It takes a little getting used to.

For the "window", for sound, how about lining some vases across there, or other objects to help dampen the sound? No, your room isn't going to become a sound-proof light-proof area, but you moved there kind of knowing that right?

ENJOY the space. It's very fun to live in a loft!!

Home Depot - shelves, track, brackets. Cheap!! I did shelves like that all the way up a wall in my closet for shoes.

I think it's great!! Nice and simple. I for some reason imagine black trim on those curtains - I think it would be cute and add extra visual interest to them!

Holy moly there's a lot of comments already!!

The house I grew up in was over 100 years old and the previous owners daughter was killed out front when she crossed the street and was hit by a car. For YEARS we felt like the house was haunted by something. It was just odd. You could feel someone following you upstairs in a room that we later learned was her bedroom. We didn't know about her death until years later when we looked into it.

Similar to your story, there is a mansion in the same neighborhood (in St Louis) where 3 people had committed suicide. And the legend has it that the house was "cursed" and made those 3 generations of people kill themselves in it. It's now one of America's top haunted attractions.

So *I'd* look elsewhere, because of my personal experiences.

GAHHHH!! I love dark walls!! I love masculine decor. And my husband loves me for that. Our loft has similar elements, but certainly not to this degree of detail. I'm in love. Love love love.
