Where did you find that ladder for your loft??!!! And, I wanted to say I really love this room. Maybe when the contest is over, we can arrange a tour in person . . .

I'm in this thing (Fuschia, Black & Blue), and it's difficult even for me: their room is gorgeous. Worse still, we're all writers. Not fair!

I'm going to try and answer all the questions:

1. The sofa is from the Brooklyn flea market. 2. The rug is not a reproduction: vintage Chinese Art Deco. 3. Believe it or not, the bookshelves are from Ikea, and they're almost 10 years old. They've proven to be shockingly durable; I've moved countless times, and they're still standing.

As far as making it more spacious, well, it's just perfect more me! Honestly, I wasn't "going for" any look; it's a collection of what I love AND what I can afford. But I think it just comes down to different approaches (words like "edit" give me the heebie jeebies).

To the person who mentioned Adrian Lyne's set design: you are spot-on! The visual experience -regarding some of the apartments in his films- borders on the erotic . . .

I reread my post. I guess I was too overwhelmed by all of the lovely comments because I didn't make much sense! What I meant to write was, I wasn't certain about posting photos of different stages. Again, thank you for the lovely comments.

Oh! The loft bedroom isn't my bedroom; it's for guests. My bedroom is tiny and teal, trust me.

Oh, my goodness! I feel so touched by these comments; thank you so much. One Important thing i forgot to mention: I wasn't uncertain about posting photos where the arrangement was different. Then I realized it might be helpful; it shows it's always a work in progress, and Time. It takes time.

Star Princess: I bought the rug at ABC- and it was a hefty purchase, let me warn you now. But I knew I wanted it to anchor the room, and since it's a one time cost, I decided to take the plunge.

Well, the lucite & leopard chair, the poodle, the chinese art deco rug (which was huge from the 20's to the early 60's) leads me to believe it's the 60's. The two things that throw me off; the black closet & the storage/ottoman. But I'll vote for the 60's.
