my kind of girl! Eclectic, thoughfull, not cluttered, but something interesting everywhere you look.
And as an aside, "dead things" are a lovely homage to the beauty of life.

Nothing I haven't seen before, but it is indeed lovely.

This is not my bag.

oh dear.
When you make more money, throw out everything and start over. Charming to have photos on display, but there's a thing called albums. It does look like you are a nice person, and have done as much as possible to make a comfortable place to have friends over.

While nice, this looks like you just bought the model loft and left it at that. Nothing strikes me as personal. Nor does the size seem small or a challenge.

Very Bev Hills without being over done. I quite like your choices. Palette is good, however the apartment looks dark - it may just be the time of day photos were shot.
Nice job.

I've just outlined this 375' in my AutoCad. Yikes. As a designer myself, I would find this an enourmous challenge, however what the owner has achieved is a sense of zen-like tranquility and lack of clutter. A lot is left to the imagination in the photos - I think they could have given us a bathroom shot (I'm assuming that's through the slightly cracked door) by opening it a bit, and some wider views utilising the mirrors to show both sides.
Overall, this "beachhouse" seems a success to me.
I completely agree with whitewashing or painting the loft white - it will go with virtually any colour combination you ever move to, and open the very small space as well.
Given only 5 shots i would have replaced the trunk with another POV of the studio. Overall, I think this is a superb use of minimalism without feeling cold.
May I come and visit?
Good job.

Everything is in its place, and there's a place for everything. While tres moderne, it is not overly dramatic nor overzealous. Looks fab and comfy, not intimidating, but grand. Love it.

You certainly have a lovely flair, and the photos show us a good amount. However, I see to much "Ikea" resemblance, which is just a personal issue - I could see you thinking out of the box a bit as that is obviously your strong point by integrating some different styles in. I would live here though, if you took away just a few things.

Many lovely touches and pieces, resulting in a unique feel for a small space. That aside, I just can't help but imagine Auntie Mame spending a bit too much time looking for her "top drawer". To me, small generally connotes utilizing space to give the feeling of space. This appears rather cramped. I'd love to see what you would do with more of a footprint.
